A New Year!

For the first time in a long time I find myself taking a moment to look back and to look forward, instead of sitting still. I look at the past year, at what I've accomplished and I'm amazed! This past year has been a new beginning for me. I found something I love and that I can be a part of. After realizing just how bad my circulation was and why I felt so poorly, I am now in the best physical shape of my adult life.

And I'm looking forward with new goals in mind, at what I might accomplish in the new year and it's exciting. Very soon I want to have 100 items in my darned shop lol but I'd love to get it up to 300, but not because nothing is selling lol I hope to continue to challenge myself, improve my execution, and to get farther out of the creativity box. I'd love to start working on a local presence, as well...need inventory for that!

I want to keep getting into better shape and keep feeling better.....and if I could actually slim down some, too, that would rock! I want to really start narrowing down my lovebird stock and start making some awesome pairs.

More than anything I want to stay motivated and focused, those are tough.

With this theme of a new year and new beginnings, I'd like to showcase a couple of items from my fellow Polymer Clay Smooshers who have not had a sale on Artfire.com yet! Hopefully They can start out the new year right and get their first sales soon. Check out their wonderful work-

  5. It's so nice of you to get the word out about these great shops that haven't had a sale yet. Their work is just amazing, and I think if they get enough exposure they'll have plenty of sales in no time! :)
