Should I continue to make items that I like that are not selling???

I've been making an item that I love and think is absolutely beautiful but it is not selling. I like to have at least a dozen pieces of an item but at what point should I stop making the item if it is not selling??? I think once this item catches on it will sell but I am also cautious of having too much stale inventory. At what point do you stop making items that are not selling???

New items I've recently completely.

The contest to win this beautiful ring ends on October 31st. Post a quick reply to this blog for a quick entry in the contest.

Are Wrist Watches Passe' ???

Yesterday I found a beautiful dress watch that my I had received as a gift many years a go. I never wore it. I had been relying on my cell phone for years to give me the correct time and had long since stopped wearing watches. I looked at it and thought, that's a really nice watch, but quickly returned it to the back of the cabinet. I can't think of many people that wear watches anymore. My mom has her dress watches and then she has her “everyday watch”. She only uses her cell phone for long distance calls and would never take it out of her purse just to see the time. I squint to see the teeny-tiny numbers on mine several times a day, even at home where there's a digital clock on practically everything. So what do you think, are wrist watches really passe' ???

Do you use affirmations?

Many people use affirmations to manifest the things they want in life. Some also claim miraculous life changes through affirmations. It is the subject of many books, going back as far as What a Man Thinketh, The Power of the Subconscious Mind, Think and Grow Rich and most recently The Secret. I'm currently reading Louise Hay's You Can Heal Your Life. I love it. I have tried affirmations and twice it has worked for me but not every time. Have you tried affirmations? Have the use of affirmations been beneficial in your life. Please share your experiences with affirmations and list which books that have helped you the most.

Don't forget, each time you reply to my blog, you receive an entry in my contest to win a beautiful blue African Opal custom made ring. Winner will be announced on November 1st.
