Now onto new beginnings! I've been busy recording last year's inventory, sales, and ALL of my new supplies. Then I priced and sorted my supplies and now I'm all ready and excited to start creating!
I've also given up my storage space and have been moving a lot of stuff back home, so that is another job to deal with in the next while: purging. It is not the easiest and definitely NOT my favourite. Oh well, I look forward to the day when it is finished.
On a much more pleasant note, I have so many other upcoming things I'm working on! I've managed to get a couple of my applications in already (early for once, yay!) and I am working on a really exciting show idea for JewelleryWon. I've been to a workshop on pricing your creations for sale and one on selling on-line. I'm also registered for a webinar this week on social media marketing. I am also pleased to now be a member of Handmade Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Craft Council.
On the colour creative side, I am back at lampwork again in a sculptural class this time. So far we've made frogs, eyes, nude statuettes and flowers. I will be doing Beads of Courage this weekend. Any suggestions for what to create?
Here are my January beads:
