2012 has been a great year for me. Much better than the last few. I know that the change albeit slow in our economy is helping a lot of us feel better, a bit more stable. Change is constant we know that is for sure.
Over the past year I have met some wonderful new people, I have had the chance to grow new friendships, and maintain the ones I have although we all struggle with finding time to get together. We still manage to, because we all know how important they are to our lives.
This year I lost my beloved dog Chance, and I adopted a little sweet pea named Bailey. I truly believe to ever get over your animals you have to adopt new ones. That’s the only way to stop the grieving.
In January of this year I set a goal to reach 100 additional sales on etsy and I met my goal. Success is sweet. Not only have I met my goal but I now have many new customers and continue to get lots of orders outside of etsy from my fabulous co-workers at Kelly! I have also gratefully made many new friends. There are a lot of amazing people out there that we’d never have the opportunity to meet if it weren’t for social media!
So I have to start thinking about a new goal for 2013. I know that I will continue mentoring and volunteering, I know that I will continue to work on my art and increase my sales on etsy. I know that I will really strive to get my son to become a wonderful reader, and encourage him, and love him and watch all his sports activities and cheer him on and guide him as best I can because he is the most important person to me. And I’m going to enjoy this Christmas while the magic of Santa still lives on…and may it always.
Wishing you all the joys of the Holiday Season.. some pics from 2012.
