I can't believe this year 2010 has only a few days left.. Seems 2o1o has passed faster than any other year. The other evening, New Year's Resolutions were the topic of discussion , of course,Get Organized was a common commitment..but how many years have I resolved to get into the organized state, so far i have not become a citizen.
While this year has been loaded with challenges, it's also brought with it some wonderful things ..one of which was getting involved with the bead community and Beading Blogs. Lori Anderson's amazing Bead Soup Party introduced me to a wonderful group of interesting and creative people.
Which brings about my second NY's R..
My Etsy shop..Spirited Earth , changed from being filled with rattles to a shop selling ceramic beads..something for which I am thrilled. However , up until now,it's been more of a hobby with my other ceramic business taking up most of my time( whatever that might be when not dealing with family )so my second resolution this new year will be to focus more on the shop and keep at least 2 dozen items listed at all times..
I took advantage of yesterdays Huge storm( which dumped over 3 inches of rain in my area yesterday) to work in the studio..there are almost 100 assorted focals and about 50 small beads in the kilns this morning..
I want to thank everyone for being so welcoming and supportive this past year.. I love the beading community ,You are the best..have a great New Year.
