Did you know???

Standard

Did you know I have not one but three different websites??  No?  Really?  Well, I do.  Did you know that I own my own brick and mortar store?   No?  I’m shocked!  I don’t think I’ve ever written about any of my websites… Sooo, let’s pick one out of the hat.

Oh look!  Prima Donna Beads!  I make beads and jewelry.  When I’m not carting my wares around the country, I do my best to load my art on to this website.  It’s a pain, I really think people respond better to the work when they can see it person.  I also don’t like having to measure and describe each and every piece.  I do my best but really don’t think writing that a bead is 22x22mm is great, and a photo of a bead next to a ruler is even less so.

However, I do like my website and I have made sales from it… I wish I could be a fly on the wall when someone comes across my home page… what is there that makes them stop?  Were they looking for me and already knew the web address?  Did they happen upon it accidentally?  I never know if it’s rude to get personal and ask when the order comes through. 

I have mostly beads and jewelry there, but I also have some of my other work too… I know how to sew.  I think it’s a dieing art.  I am always surprised when other people are surprised to learn that I know how.  Or maybe it’ just me that they are surprised about.  Hmmmm.

I also know how to draw, I think most people don’t know that.  My family does.  I actually graduated on the Dean’s List from the Art Institute with a 4.0 gpa.  I have a degree in graphic design… I used it only once to get a job… I wound up in a cubicle in warehouse with no windows.  I was sad.  They went bankrupt.  Oops.

So that’s one of my websites… I hope you learned something about me that you didn’t know before.  Have a great day everybody!  I’m late for work!
