I got a bunch of new products added to the jewelry store today. The store looks pretty good now, if I say so myself, LOL! Not quite done yet, but definitely getting there.
I’ve spent a lot of time this past week working on taking new photographs of the jewelry that I have. I’ve made a lot of changes to how I’ve been doing each picture, and I’m finally pleased with the results.
So last night and today I went back into the software and worked on some modifications that were there. I had made a couple changes, but my pictures weren’t displaying correctly, so it took me about two hours to find what the problem was! Once I figured that out, things went much quicker.
Stephen and I networked our computers a few months ago, but aside from him using my printer or listening to music that’s on my hard drive from his computer, we haven’t used the network much. Tonight, I had been on the computer so long that I didn’t want to spend any more time away from my family. I turned Stephen’s computer on and went to work. What a blessing! I was able to go online and work on my store while I accessed the files on my computer’s hard drive. It was so nice to be in the same room as my family!
I still have quite a bit of work ahead of me. I have new pictures for most of the products in the store, but haven’t had a chance to change them yet. I’m in the process of changing over to a new image storage structure on my server, and it’s been quite the process. I didn’t know enough at the beginning to set it up that way, so I didn’t. Now that I know how, I’m changing things. It’s a bit more complicated, but in the long run, things will be much more organized and I will have a much easier time sorting and finding product images.
Feel free to take a look now if you like – it’s Hope of My Heart Designs, but please remember I’m not quite 100% done yet. I hope to have everything finished tomorrow, but I’m not sure if that’s a realistic goal or not.
It really amazes me about this business. It all started with a friend liking a bracelet I had made – I had no intention of selling jewelry! And now look – God has really grown my little hobby into a business. I love it. It’s so nice too, because making the jewelry is relaxing, and I can schedule it around Little man’s naptimes so it doesn’t take up family time. And the income, well, I have to admit, it’s awfully nice too.
