2012 was an okay year. Things slowed down in the shop a little but that's partially my own doing. I took a break from doing fairs and markets and focused more on growing my blog. I might pick up the selling opportunities again in '13. I have a couple of goals for 2013 which include:
*Getting into more retail shops
*More press and exposure for my blog and Etsy shop. I'll be focusing mostly online. I don't see the point in print ads anymore.
*Finally make a profit : this is a big one as I've taken a loss every year since I started on Etsy. Clearly my prices aren't what they should be.
And on a more personal note...
*Go on a real vacation (I say this every year and it doesn't happen)
*Lose weight! I know it's cliche and even "taboo" for some bloggers to not talk about diets but I don't care. I gained weight, I'm not thrilled about it, I gotta lose it. I figured if I actually expressed this publically, I would be held accountable. Don't worry, this will not turn into some diet/weight-loss blog. There's more to me than my size. I don't even have a number in mind. I just want to be able to feel comfortable in skin & clothes again.
That's pretty much it. I try to live my life day to day and take it as it comes. I plan for things, I dream of doing things and try to work on them but that's ongoing. But for now, I'll just enjoy the Twilight Zone marathon on television. :)
