Mandalas, Pricing Calculator, Jewelry Kits, Threading Eyebrows


I'm working on a Photoshop tutorial for making mandalas. I hope to have it done by today or tomorrow.


I am just putting the finishing touches on version two. People who already purchased version one can upgrade for $5, and version two will be selling for $10.


I've also been toying with the idea of throwing a few kits together. I was thinking how easy it would be for someone to have all the components to make what they wanted without having to go out and buy oodles of stuff and be stuck with all the leftover. And unless you buy in bulk for the best prices, there is always leftover. It you DON'T buy in bulk, you can end up paying outrageous prices. Ask me… I do it whenever I have a custom order and need just one or two specific things.


So, I wanted to see what the actual process is, and in looking around I stumbled upon a YouTube video of someone who actually shows you how to do it yourself. I thought it was pretty cool. I'm sure I'd take about 400 times longer to do it than the instructor does, but it was still cool to watch.


My son does NOT get homesick. I used to joke about how he went to a goalie camp in Canada when he was 13 and didn't call me once.

But here he is, doing it again. He's in L.A. for a two week goalie camp. He left on Father's day and although I did speak with him briefly on Monday, he hasn't called or texted since. I'm trying not to sound all clingy ('cause I'm not, really), but I guess I just want to know that he's enjoying the camp… so I don't have to worry about him down there having a terrible time on my dime. Ha ha ha!

Well, I'm taking the silence as good news. I will infer that he's just having so much fun he doesn't have time to get in contact with me.


Melanie-Pearl: that last bracelet is amazing! it's really quite set apart from all of your other designs. wow!

Wow, Melanie! I'm so glad you commented. Well, thanks… first of all for the nice comment about my bracelet. But I got to check out your blog and your Etsy store. Both so interesting and inspiring! I love your metalwork.

mclainjewelry: This has been my slowest month ... Laura please don't judge by THIS month... try your experiment in October or November and I bet you will reap the benefits! It always works for me ... the more I list and relist the more I sell ... even if I cycle something 5 times that is still just a $1.00 listing fee ... really worth hangin in there!

First off, I don't know how you can sell your artwork for such low prices. Wowie! I couldn't resist. Although this one was also very tempting.

Anyway, thanks for reminding me that it's June. D'oh! I know that the summer months (particularly June) are slower for sales. That, combined with the current U.S. economy, is making sales, sellers, and buyers scarce, I guess.

And yes, I will continue cycling and re-cycling… When I gave Ruby Lane a "good shot", I spent a fortune in their in-house advertising blah blah blah. You can't say I didn't try.

Misty: Just thought I would leave you info. on the US version of "How To Look Good Naked". It is on lifetime. Here is a link to the page where you can watch past episodes. http://www.mylifetime.com/on-tv/shows/how-to-look-good-naked/video

Thanks for the link, Misty! I didn't know you could watch whole episodes.
