The end of last year was a busy time for me. After last years bumps (moving & broken wrist) I was able to return my focus to my work in the latter half of the calendar. I made a goal for myself that in addition to selling on etsy, I would participate in four shows to get my work out there in the local indie art/craft scene. I started in May. I seemed it would be a stretch after a few deadlines were just out of reach for me. As it turned out a lot of unexpected opportunities came up and I ended up participating in seven shows! What a great feeling to surpass a goal. I think I will be making a lot more goals for this year. Whether I succeed or fail at least I'll have a path to take.
At one of the shows I got an order for the customization of my Kindred Spirits card. Instead of two girls my customer wanted four times four. I'm tickled with how this card delights me so. In addition to making more goals for myself, I also want to give myself assignments to stimulate my creative production, now i just need to think of some assignments.
