Have you checked out Sara O Jewelry lately? I first wrote about SOJ last November, with the intention of updating you more frequently about my progress. Progress has been slow but steady and at this point, I think that I can start to update you on a much more regular basis.
I had my awesome co-worker and regular SoftFlexGirl contributor Kristen Fagan create my logo. My logo is very special to me because it is based off of the wedding invitations that she also created. If you are a small business looking for freelance help with graphics, I highly recommend Kristen.
I bought my domain and set up my website through my blogger account. I really like it. It has been easy to manage and I can update everything myself. I am obviously very familiar with blogger, so it was really comfortable and easy for me to get started. My website has tabs that include: blog, shop, events, book, in print, free project ideas, bio and contact.
I signed up for an etsy, although I have spent almost no time on my shop. I really need to dedicate some time to making my photos better and learning more about how to be a successful etsy seller. For now, it is started and I really hope to be able to work on it further in the near future.

Finally, I set up my facebook page. If you have a chance, I'd love it if you would stop by and click to "like" Sara O Jewelry. It is a space to not only showcase my jewelry designs but also to share my love of fashion, color combinations and current trends.
Goals for August:
- Work on etsy store
- Retake photos of finished jewelry
- Consider local farmer/craft markets for the holidays
- Make new jewelry
- Renew my domain name
- Learn more about "Square"to take funds at a farmer/craft market
- Talk to an accountant
