What's on Tap?

Morning y'all

Check out my new beads! Gosh I love bead shows, they are so much fun. I went to a wholesale show in Asheville on Tuesday. If you haven't been to Asheville, you should. I love that town. I had lunch at my favorite restaurant, Salsa's and then had to get chocolates at The Chocolate Fetish, so yummy. It was rainy or I would have done more shopping, they have great stores.

I am getting ready for the Buyers Market. If you don't know much about it. It's a wholesale only craft market. Shops and galleries come from all over the country to place orders for their stores. I have been doing the show for six years now selling my line of jewelry. Well it's next month and I always like to have a few new designs for the show. I also have to get them photographed and into a catalog. It's a lot of work to get ready for this show but it's a lot of fun once I am there.

It's also tax time. I try my hardest to get my taxes done in January. Spring is when things really start getting busy around the Jangles studio and I don't work well under pressure. Therefore, I have to get my taxes done early. I started sorting recipts yesterday. I swore I was going to clean my studio but I think it might be even messier now with all of the paper piles.

I really like this time of year. I like to look back over what I have accomplished and what I am looking forward to achieving in the next year. I am such a planner, I can't help myself.

What are you working on for the new year? Got any good goals in mind?


  1. Hey girl! I'm getting ready to go to the Dallas Gift Market next week, so I know what you mean about all the work! Whew! But it is fun once you're there! Good luck with everything this year. Can't wait to see what you come up with next! I wear my Jangles "sleek" necklace all the time, and everyone loves it!

  2. Oh wow!
