I've been inspired by a blog friend, Edi of MemoriesforLifeSB to revisit my goals for 2012 to see how I am doing in the first month. Edi's goals were all VERY specific and mine were more of a general nature. (Here's her post about her progress.) Anyway, I had to go back and read my goals, then evaluate.
In my supply shop, I had determined to purchase more vintage fabric, if they were available. It seems that I have not been shopping as much as I would have liked to find these at estate sales. NO shopping, you say? Well, I think that the weather has had a little to do with that. It hard to tramp in and out of houses where sales are with the weather dreary, cold and wet! But I will do better! Spring is coming! :)
As to my Creations shop, I have been weeding out those items that have not been favorites, (and have been in my shop for a long time.) Thus pruning my shop items, getting ready to add some new items to an existing line. I have given some items away as gifts and plan to let my granddaughter, Madison, sell some of them at a school garage sale. She is raising money for her 8th grade school trip to Washington DC. She is excited about this trip and is working very hard toward this project! (My other granddaughter, Courtney, now a senior, went on this trip in her 8th grade year.) This should clear out more items. Then, the plan was to expand the coaster and cozy line with new types of fabrics. I have not done this in the month of January, but once I have cleared out the old, new items will be in order!
Mostly I have been working on my own personal creativity goals. I will save this discussion for tomorrows post. See you then!
