not me, personally, but it seems everything with my business just doesn't seem to click like it has in the past. I realize this is a slump but it just seems every part if it is just not flowing. I haven't had regular sales in the past few weeks. Ever since summer started sales have slowed to a trickle. That is okay. I realize that it comes and goes and with the start of summer things slow down. Usually when I go through a slow period I work on new things, retake some photos, experiment with updating my shop.
In the past couple of days I have taken so many pictures and NOT ONE has been a decent picture. Not even one that I could say, "wow, thats it!".
I get ideas in my head and go to the garage to work and then....blank.....nothing.....even looking at my stones or sketches doesn't help. I am uninspired.
Also, sometimes when slumps hit I go gemstone shopping. But with extra expenses and sales being so slow I can't do that. I have to pay my etsy fees and order new business cards, etc.
I don't mean to sound complaining, honestly I'm not (though I don't know how to write this without it sounding that way)..I'm just stumped...in a curious kindof way, that everything I do just doesn't seem to work as it has.
I know it'll pass, etc., etc., etc. but I just though I'd share a little after trying to edit about 50 photos, none of which are workable. boo!
