Last year sure got off to a difficult start, but by the end of 2012, I found myself to be happier than ever. My craft shows and holiday markets were a great success, my etsy site has seen sales growth, and I have been very fortunate in my personal life. I am so thankful to all of you that have supported my dreams and the growth of my small business. I cannot wait to see where I am at the end of 2013. There are so many fabulous things to come.
This year I look forward to sharing some milestones with two of my best friends, one is getting married on June 29th and another is expecting a baby the same day! My older brother is also getting married in 2013. He will be the first of my five siblings to get hitched, so it is a BIG deal. As you can imagine, I will be making lots of jewelry gifts for all of these special people.
Cheers to the new year!
Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.
