Hello there? How are you? I hope 2013 has been good to you so far? Apologies for my lack of contribution to blogland of late. Truth be told, I didn't feel I had much to say towards the latter part of last year, because, well, I lost my crafting-vibe a bit for a while there. To be honest I had started to get a bit despondent that my little Folksy shop hadn't been the run-away success I had dreamed of for 2012 and rather than taking that as my cue to roll up my sleeves and get stuck in, I guess you'd say I sulked for a bit.....
I've got over myself now though. Having given myself a good talking to (after all if all I have to worry about is not as many people liking the stuff I make than I had hoped, then I don't really have much to worry about, ah?) and have started to take action!
And to start with I have decided to stop being a floozie - in the crafting sense you understand. I realised that I get far too easily distracted by new crafts. And as a consequence I waste so much time, energy and not to mention money trying new ideas and techniques that I never finish anything.
I'm also going to streamline my aspirations for the year ahead. I've always dreamed big (I get that from my lovely dad) but I have so many ideas that I can never turn them into a realistic, achievable plan.
So I'm going to stop getting distracted and concentrate on the things I really love making and, from a commercial point of view, have been my biggest success.
I therefore declare 2013 the year of the corsage!
Did you use January to re-evaluate your aims and aspirations? What do you have planned for the year ahead?
