Busy But Getting Nowhere

I guess it's just that time of year when it becomes a continuous game of "catch up".  Between trying to promote my invisible etsy shop,  AlmostPrecious and make new creations I find myself rushing to "catch up" with laundry, cooking, cleaning, gardening, grocery shopping etc. etc.
So today my unfortunately neglected blog is getting a quick promo post . . . and an apology to all my wonderful blogging buddies -  I'm sorry I haven't been dropping by as often as I should to read and comment on your wonderful blogs.   :(
Wish there were someway to make my online shop self-promoting.  :)
Below are a pair of my latest creations - Teddy Bear earrings with pink fiber optic Cat's Eye  beads.
As many of you know fiber optic Cat's Eye beads have motion built into them the "eye" moves smoothly up and down as the bead is moved.  Since these fiber optic beads are top grade "A" beads they have a well defined eye and incredible movement.
Okay now I'm off to try to type up a few more jewelry descriptions for my etsy shop and to take a Gazillion more photos . . . of which only about half a dozen will be good enough to use.  lol :D


  1. These are so cute - love the teddies! And the cat's eye beads are beautiful too.

  2. There are never enough hours in the day to do all that we want to. Don't forget to take care of yourself.

  3. oh Anna, this is so precious. I love the delicate feel the pink tone gives to it.

  4. I know the feeling - the day should have more hours. Have a great week ahead and hopefully some time for yourself...

  5. Oh, these are the sweetest earrings!
    I know how frustrating it is to spend hours and hours promoting your shop and still feeling like no one is seeing it. Keep going though! Your hard work will pay off! XO

  6. Aw, these are so sweet! A perfect combination of elegant and cute :)

  7. Cute earrings!! i love those cat's eye beads in cobalt blue. Such a sucker for them! As to the promoting of one's shop, that is my Achilles heal. Basically I just want to be the artist. I can't be bothered with the minutiae of creating my shop, promotion, and the financial end of it.

  8. Lovely pair! And high quality materials. A Teddy bear and pink Cat's eye - the message is there for a little (and not so little) girl. People should look for this kind of symbolic presents. So, go ahead and promote your shop - descriptions look like a hard work to me. And we'll patiently wait for another post :)

  9. So sweet!! And yes, somehow when we focus our energy into one are, other things get neglected. For me, I've been busy baking and all of a sudden somehow, mysteriously the hamper is overflowing!! ;-)

    Happy Monday!

  10. It is about self-promotion... isn't it? I have a friend who has a Face Book page... where she does most of her promotion work... and ties it in to her etsy.

    I hope all is well for you!


  11. Shoes - Unfortunately, yes it does start out that way. As a crafter/artist I would prefer to just make my jewelry and have someone else market it for me, but that is never going to happen. :)
    I would love to be able to devote more attention to my blog and write from my soul with no regard to marketing . . . well maybe someday. :)

  12. Hi Anna,

    Lovely earrings, I have never heard of those beads they sound amazing :)

    Well, I am just like you right now, I have sooo neglected my blog and have only been able to keep up with a few Blogger Buddies of late :(

    Life is crazy and I am off to the crazy farm, (I mean P.O.)LOL!!!

    Have a lovely evening, cheers, T. :)

  14. Cute earrings! I love cats eye, and the little teddy bear charm.
