Goals! Seems as if bloggers are all doing posts on business and personal goals for 2014. I've been thinking about it, but it was so hard to come to conclusions this year. I looked up my goals for the last two years, and that didn't inspire me! Some of those were completed and some were not! I hesitate to write goals and not meet them, but if I don't write them down then I have nothing to work forward to! So, here goes:

1) I have made monetary goals for my wholesale business and my online businesses. Last year the online business was not where I would have liked it to be, but my wholesale business took off! I always have a hard time analyzing the online businesses. One shop did well, one just sort of sat there until Christmas, and the other one was rather status quo. I think the answer is in new creative products--we'll see how that goes!?

3) I am working on two books. One is a craft tutorial book on using scraps with instruction on scrap projects. I want to finish it and get it published later this year. The other book is a joint effort with my husband about our lives and how they intertwined and evolved. It is our vision to share it with our large blended family while celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2015.
Well, that's it! Quite a list, but I am excited to begin the new year's creativity!!
