Happy New Year!

Thank you for all the lovely heartwarming comments on my last post. It is a surreal experience and having your affirmation of my experience made it all the more special.

It has been a nice holiday. I have really enjoyed the break from scrambling to get orders made and sent. I spent a week just being. I read 2 3/4 of the three books in the Twilight series. Let me tell you-such fun reading. I switched my choice for my book club book to Twilight. I am hoping that all my buddies will enjoy reading it as much as I did.

On my break I also got to watch project runway first season - all but the last 2 episodes (my sil got it for Xmas-we tried staying up all night to watch it all but both got too sleepy to finish). I watched the movie Once which was really great. The music reminded me of Radiohead and the Weepies. Two of my favorite groups. My husband enjoyed it too. We got the soundtrack as a gift for Xmas:)

I also got a business book I am starting to read as well as an interesting Chinese healing book.

My sister in law bought me a huge assortment of wonderful Roobis and earl Grey loose teas. i love them-but it is quite funny to see the lengths I have to go to make it since we apparently threw out the tea ball we had by accident.

I find myself dragging my feet so to speak in terms of getting back into business. I feel almost like it is a trouble making friend that once I start hanging out with again-will drag me away from my other responsibilities. I have been thinking of ways to make the business more organized. This includes doing things in bigger chunks. I will spend the next week making new products-taking pictures, packaging them, labeling them and then writing the listings in Word. Then that will be it for assembly except for custom pendants I plan on offering again this month.
I now go to the couch to watch Noggin while sorting through my records to prep for taxes. FUN!

Not too long ago, I purchased a carousel picture and a "cotton candy" pendant from your etsy shop. I want you to know, your talent with the lens has made a difference to me. I wear that pendant to remind me to embrace the sweetness of life, the fun of life, the things I have unintentionally been denying myself.

Your talent is a gift, a gift I took into my home and have been soothed and changed by.

Organize, expand and keep putting love into your business. You are making a difference. Happy 2008!

hi, i've been following you a bit via denise (boho girl) and just wanted to say i'm so inspired by your brave pursuit of making a career as a photographer, as well as your other artistic talents. i am on that path myself, just beginning, and toggle between excited and scared to death at the thought of organizing it in a real way and getting paid for it.

i also appreciate your honesty and openness about your struggles as well as your accomplishments.

best to you this year. :) xoxo
