Happy New Year!
Whew! Its been an exhausting few months for me. I am glad to be putting the last year on a shelf. Do you ever feel that way? Sometimes it seems as if all the rough stuff happens at the end of the year.
In October my maternal grandmother passed away. It was a painful time and her death hit me harder than I had expected. She was 95 and an extraordinary woman. Someday I will dedicate an entire post to her life and what she taught me.
November, things got crazy! I did two craft booths and those can suck up the time, ladies! They are a blast, but exhausting. It feels so good to meet people who enjoy my work and want to talk about making things.
December we all know is madness. I had a booth scheduled at a local bazaar. This event was awesome. Lots of local artists in one place, a handmade mall. Over 600 people passed through the doors! Plus, my sister had her baby! We welcomed my nephew, Dexter, on the sixteenth. Both he and his mom did great and I am one happy aunt!
This month the boutique that I sell my items at is closing its doors. Hopefully temporarily. I'm staying positive and have some new opportunities on the horizon. I'll check in with new tutorials as often as I can! I love you all, and am looking forward to sharing all the new changes of 2012!
