Again today, I deviate from the Abby story to post my Etsyblogger Carnival post for the month:
The year 2009 was so bad that I am not looking back. I'm letting it go and mustering all the hope I can for 2010. Economic situations for everyone were not what we hoped, so I am looking forward to what the new year will bring. Some of my hopes and dreams:
1) My husband is in a dead-end (and a stop-gap) job that he took just because he needed something! It doesn't meet our needs so we are living with family. This year he needs a GOOD permanent job! We have several prospects, so with the job market still tight, we are hoping!
2) I have always dreamed of and want to purchase a piece of country property, much like I am writing about in my 'Abby' series in this blog. I want to have a small rural family farm.
3) I want to expand my business interests. I'm thinking of expanding one of my items to place in brick and mortar stores on a wholesale basis. This will be a new adventure for me, exciting!
4) I hope to design a line of country linens and kitchen towels, also for future expansion.
These may seem like lofty plans or dreams, but without hope, our lives are just no fun!
