Your 2020 Business Plans

Post #217

January 30, 2020

Let’s Talk about

our Business Plans for 2020

This morning I checked updates for my website name. I’m always watchful when it comes to making sure that is protected and that no other person named Lynda Lambert can take it from me.

I saw that my 5-year subscription will run out in August.  Yes, I have almost 8 more months before that happens. But, what if I forget and let it lapse?  I decided I would just renew my website today while it was fresh on my mind.

I paid for the next 5 years for my namecheap dot com registration of my website name. My website is  lyndalambert. com

 

In the process of looking over the namecheap dot com site I found that they have a newsletter and I found the website for this business.  On the website, I found some great articles about how to use your website and how to plan your business approach.

I recommend you visit namechea blog to see what might help you in your own plans for 2020 for your blog and website.

I hope your 2020 website on Namecheap

is successful for you, and is a blessing to everyone ho visits you.

 Share the Happiness!

Heidi’s EVENT

 

Welcome to my Guest Today

Heidi Lambert McClure

Owner of Sassafras Hill Studio

 

Lynda_ Good Afternoon, Heidi.  What would you like to talk about today?

Heidi_  Two important things!

First, I am having an EVENT on Saturday evening and I want to invite your readers to drop in and see what I have created in my studio. 

I will be showing visitors some lovely and  affordable jewelry I have just made!

I do my work in a  lovely studio in rural Pennsylvania.

Check out my EVENT by clicking here!

Lynda_That sounds like a nice peaceful lace to work.

Heidi_ Yes, it is!

I also want to give some TIPS to those who visit here so that they can enjoy their jewelry for a long time.

 

Lynda_ I am wondering about how I should take care of my jewelry, too.

What would you recommend?

 Heidi_Believe it or not, regardless of price, most jewelry is delicate.

Gemstones can scratch with wear.

This is natural  – so treat it with care.

Exposure to common household chemicals and beauty supplies can damage and dull gemstones.

Avoid direct contact with showers, perfume, lotion, chlorine, and soaps.

A good rule to follow is that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night.

When you take it off, always put it away!

Lynda_How should jewelry be cleaned? 

You can gently clean your jewelry with warm soapy water and a soft brush to help retain its shine. Try using an old toothbrush to get inside nooks.Make sure to get everything good and dry with a clean cotton cloth or a hair dryer on low before you put it away to prevent tarnishing after cleaning with water. For a quick touch up, use a polishing cloth to brighten up your chains, ear wires and clasps. It’s ok if it the cloth gets dirty. That means that it’s working. Even when discolored, it will still clean your jewelry effectively.

How should jewelry be stored?

Take care to protect your jewelry. Moisture will encourage the appearance of tarnish, so keep jewels dry in storage and never store jewelry in the bathroom. A regular jewelry box on your dresser will work just fine for a few pieces or an armoire with lots of space if you have a big collection.

Plastic food containers are great for storing jewelry in sets so they don’t get separated. Place a folded paper towel inside and lay your jewelry in flat.

These are inexpensive and stackable.

The main thing is that you want your jewelry to be protected from air, dust and dampness when you’re not wearing it.

Lynda_ Thanks for the good tips, Heidi. They are really easy to remember.

Good luck with your live events. I’ll see you Saturday!
