Color + Texture collide - Contemporary Gifts

I think I've forgotten to mention it, but I have started up a new etsy shop here:

Paper Pattern Silk

I'm going to put my jewelry, accessories, pocket mirrors, etc on it. Right now there are a few pieces of jewelry, many more are in the process of being photographed and listed. So, it would be really nice if you could check it out, let me know what you think. The avatar and banner are works in progress, they will be changed to match my website when I can get my boyfriend to code it for me. It's all designed and the photoshop files are sitting sadly and somewhat impatiently on my computer waiting for him to work his graphic design student knowledge on. I hope he will be able to get it up and running soon, I am so excited to have it on there.

In other news, some Etsy orders are starting to wander into my mailbox. Today I recieved the first of three pocket mirrors I ordered. I got one each in 2.25, 3, and3.5 inches so that I can see first hand which size I want to go with. The 3.5 arrived today and is really nice, but feels a bit too awkward to hold. It's a bit big, but the 3.5 machine gives me the option to make coasters as well. I'm not sure if there is a big market for coasters though. As nice as they are, I don't know that I would drop $16 - 20 on a set of them for my place, so I'm uncertain my target market would either.

Tomorrow I am going to apply for a job at a local bakery. My plan is, if I can get a weekday job I will be able to afford a smart phone or pda, and can then work on my business while at work on my breaks. It would be nice to have some sort of certainty when it comes to my summer income, but I do really want to make my summer SEED business work too. So we'll see if I am able to manage both, but I think I will be. I get bored if I'm not doing anything anyways, so at least they will keep me on my toes.
