Happy New Year! How was your holiday? We all had a nasty cold, battled it the whole vacation, which was exhausting, but still, we had a wonderful time with family and friends. The kids were a joy (most of the time, we had a few stir crazy days in there when I was in bed most of the day and they ran wild), we got to spend lots of time with those we love.
Resolutions, well, I usually don't make them. But this year I thought I'd like to learn to live fully in each moment. To pay closer attention to what is said to me, what happens around me, and to appreciate each moment. Our life is only a stream of moments, and I don't want to miss any of it!!!!
I really enjoyed my break from blogging and beads for the holiday, but I am ready and itchin to get back in the swing of things.
I am excited about 2012. I have lots of plan. Plans for blog hops and tutorials with design challenges, plans to write more magazine submissions, plans to eventually do a bead show, plans to create an artsy yet affordable jewelry line for some local shops........................plans plans plans. I am so motivated the first week of the new year!
So right now I am cleaning, and organizg. I am deleting thousands of photos I no longer need from the computer, so I can find things easier. I am destashing some materials I no longer use, or have more then I need of. I am chomping at the bit to make more metal creations. I am giddy at the results of my new polymer beads.
This year I will offer new beads and components often, always full of antiquity and whimsy, and one of a kindness!
There you have it. I am refreshed and ready. Wish my luck.
