I decided this fall that I would take the month of January "off" from creative ventures and focus on getting caught up and some rest. Well, I'm a week into that plan and my mind is still thinking ahead! Spring is just around the corner so there are nests and eggs and all that springy stuff to seek out. Things are forming in my head that need a prototype made so I can get it out of my head and focus on something else.
One area that I would like to give more time is my Etsy store. I seem to have a following there that doesn't require me to drive, set-up, lug stuff, etc. I just need to provide more "pickins" for them. It is a fabulous way to sell, however, I miss the one-on-one interaction. So, I need to choose which shows will work the best for me. Again, choices have to be made. It's finding the right balance. I will continue to think this process through, in addition to filling the pages of my sketch book and get organized for rest of the year. After packing up at Monticello yesterday, my storage totes are a mess!
Above all, I want to thank you all for making this my most successful year yet! It has been a pleasure to meet you all and I look forward to visiting with you in the months to come. M.
