Keeping Up. I'm sure you've all noticed that I'm having a hard time keeping up with my shop.
Reason I don't get to list as many things as I'd like in a week is first and foremost because of school.
Although school isn't necessarily difficult, it's just time consuming. I vowed to never make Odelma a chore when I first opened it, and I cling very closely to that promise. When I spend so much time schooling, I usually am too worn out to get to Odelma, and I know that if I push on and update the shop or the blog when I'm worn out, I'll end up dreading it. And besides, this is a hobby. I can't make it more than that right now. If the Lord has it being something else in the future, well then I'll take that route, but for now this is all I have, and all I will make of Odelma until there is just simply more time. I want Odelma to be fun, an escape, and a creative outlet that connects me with people. Not something that I stress over.
Jewelry. Another thing you might have noticed is that Odelma has shifted to mostly jewelry. My vintage penchant started with jewelry a long tine ago. It's my favorite. I found myself getting very excited to take pictures of my Odelma jewelry, and procrastinating day after day to take pictures of my Odelma clothing. So what does that mean? Scratch the clothing. I'm super sad about the decision, but I think it's a productive one. Clothing will stay an option for the future when I'm not juggling school, but for now I'm sticking to what I love.
Shows. After the Fall into Shopping event I noticed I have probably twice as much jewelry not listed on etsy than I do listed. I also found out that I love doing shows. I loved every minute of it. So my next quest will be to find as many local (+surrounding areas) shows as possible that I can fit into my schedule. It was so much fun, and I'd really love to go that direction with Odelma.
So that's all I have for now. Just wanted to clear some things up. If you have any questions, please contact me! I'd love to chat. Also, if you're a new follower heading over from Kyla's blog (or anywhere else), leave a comment and tell me hello. I'd love to meet you and check out your blog!!
