Getting Ready For the New Year!

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I am so excited about the new year and creating new opportunities for myself. Read this and this today and have made several goals for myself.

1) Commit to this blog and post as much as I can
2) Create things and sell them to people.
3) Become more technically savvy and don't be scurd to try new things.
4) Be fearless!

I plan on doing some small craft shows in the area and blog about the journey of being a small business person.

Here is a SMALL idea vignette I created for myself. What can I say? I work visually. Lists don't always do it for me.

What IS all of that?
Check back and see!
What are your new years goals?
