Mother's Day is nearly upon us! May 10th is just two weeks away, but there's still time to find Mom the perfect present, or drop some hints of your own!

Mother's Day orders should be placed by April 24th. International orders should be placed by April 22nd. All jewelry comes ready to gift in silver and black boxes. Ship direct to Mom, by emailing at time of purchase with the address and a gift message, and I'll be sure not to include any pricing information with the shipment.

I've been in full production mode since the International Gem and Jewelry Show last weekend, so I have lots of new designs for you. You'll find a sampling below.

Don't forget to checkout my weekend surprise sales. Every Friday-Monday, get up to 30% off a single item. Follow me on Twitter to find out which piece of jewelry is on sale or check www.elena-adams.com/weekendsale.html each weekend.

Running a Home Business Without Going Crazy - Part 1

Over the years I've run my own home business, worked from home for a company, and worked for a company operated from a home studio. I adore making jewelry, but anyone who runs their own business, will tell you three things:
  • You get no personal life
  • You never take vacations
  • You will learn to hate whatever passion or hobby started the business
Over the next few posts, I'll be looking at what makes us go cabin crazy, and what I've picked up to help cope with these issues. I still find myself getting a little batty from time to time, and it's hard to follow even one's own advice, but presented are some ideas to get you out of the rut. Whether you're a home-based entrepreneur or a stay-at-home parent, these observations should give you some new ideas for making things run smoothly.

What makes us crazy?
One of the things at the core of the problem is that it's incredibly difficult to create a separation between work life and home life. When you work in an office, you get to go home at the end of the day, and even if you're tied to your blackberry, it's still your space. When you work from home, those boundaries are entirely unclear. Home responsibilities often bleed in the work day, and some days you don't look up from your computer until ten or eleven at night.

Future parts will roll out within the next week. Check back at the blog for more.
