Yep, it sure is a new year! I see everyone making their resolutions, they sound so fantastic and I don't want to be left out of formulating dreams and goals for the coming year so, yes, I am going to jump on the resolutions bandwagon! Here are a few things I'd like to accomplish in '09:
  • Get craft room sorted and organized. (ooh, I've done this one already! I'm on top of things!)
  • Make craft room an inspiring place to be, redecorate
  • Reassess and raise shipping costs to actually cover my costs to ship and shipping materials
  • Reassess my scrapbook prices and raise them to a fair price so as to stop ripping myself off
  • Create regularly
  • List regularly
  • start adhering to my personal and business schedules, life is always better when I do
  • Pick a few lines of product and then create only those, no more crafting ADD! At least not in my shop
  • on a non-crafting note I'd like to drop this 20lbs of "baby" weight, it turns 3 next week!
Well, that's a pretty good list for starters I think. I have no majorly ambitious goals for number of sales etc. For the moment I just want to get into the swing of things now that we're settled in our new house and try to get regular sales, no matter the number. My new attitude about my shop in the new year is have fun! My new attitude tells me "Never fear! You haven't actually started a business yet just started practicing having a business." Yes it is kind of a business but I'm going to try and be less tough on myself and realize I won't be able to really hit the business end hard until the boys are in school and I have some more time on my hands. And starting this year, that's going to be ok with me! Right now is just for getting my feet wet and learning the ropes for the future when it may be time to dive in full force.

Happy New Year!
