*now featured in a brick & mortar store*

So the time has come…I’ve left my little creations in some other hands. The thought is exciting and scary all at once. 

I think it’s amazing that when people go to the boutique they can see it right in their face, opposed to searching endlessly on Etsy to find one of my items.  Don’t get me wrong I freakn’ love Etsy!!!  I just wanted to try something different. So wish me luck in this new chapter.

*count down to thiry*

March 11 is the day…the day I will wake and look into my husband’s sleeping face and wonder where these last nine years together have gone.  The day I kiss my daughters feet and realize I have been doing this for nine months.  The day I receive phone calls from loved ones wishing me a very happy celebration.  The day I unwrap a parcel of creative inspiration.  The day the birthday cake will be gluten free.  The day I make a wish that will undoubtfully come true.  The day I look in the mirror and I am proud of who I see.  The day I thank the lucky stars for all that is me.  Thirty, what a wonderful place to be.

*the holidays took me somewhere in dreamland*

Wow, so it’s looks as though I have been busy with my beautiful little family this past month…

I’ve been making new mini collections of jewellery, using bamboo, shell and various semi precious stones.  Some are already posted on Etsy and some are going up in a couple of days or so.  I also launched the bridal collection *blush by chelsy anne*.  There is more good news to come, you just need to patient…2009 is going to be a great one full of endless creativity for your little hearts to soak up.

*the waiting game*

I feel like I did the week before Riley was born.  My life is about to change again and all I feel like I can  do is wait…I’m launching a boutique full of wonderful handcrafted jewellery on Etsy. The jewellery is made, everything is set except I don’t want to open shop until I have my business cards. Sure it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but to me it is! I don’t feel comfortable knowing that I had one customer who had something less than the next. I want to achieve a good rep from the start, and I want to be remembered from the start. This so called small business is very serious to me as I will not be returning to my full time job doing visual display (playing with mannequins and props) when my maternity leave is up at the end of March. Pretty scary and exciting knowing that everything I do will effect my own outcome. I set the rules and the pace. There is a chance that the shop won’t be up in time for international Christmas orders but I’m not worried because there are birthdays and other holidays that follow. But people should just be a fan ofchelsy anne regardless…lol I’m starting to feel like a broken record when I talk to other Etsy members…still waiting for my business cards, can’t open shop until I get my business cards… Watch the order go wrong. Now I’m starting to feel a little anxious. HELP. Here is a sneak peak…enjoy and please be patient!0000
