I do admit my life has been a bit on the down low last year.
I had a hard time. My dog became ill and the stress of almost losing her along with the financial burden pretty much made me sink to a low. I’ve probably posted about it in my less than frequent blog posts.
As a result, I feel like I just kind of wafted through the year. I didn’t have my same vigor and passion that I usually have for both my personal life and my business.
Stress is exhausting and consuming. blah.
However, I do believe I am through it and on the other side.
My excitement on being creative is coming back and I’m ready to take on 2014!
I’m determined to make decent bread and pastry.
I am determined to learn how to use my DSLR camera better (and I just ordered a prime lens so I better get busy!).
I am determined to do something with the yarn and knitting needles and crochet hooks I have.
(and the spinning wheel and wool)
I am determined to get more confident in grooming my standard poodles. They’re looking better, but I ain’t a pro!
I am determined to heap loads of love and patience on my children and furbabies.
I am determined to get back to my home away from home vacation in Florida … well, I did book the house last summer for this upcoming spring. so there.
I am determined to improve my activity level. Not rely on coffee so much, but get back to MOVING around!
I am determined to blog more on both life and business.
AND I am determined to kick ass with Faerie Made!
I just ordered a TON of supplies (well not literally a ton, but a bunch).
I am going to make solid shampoos and offer them. I am working up scent blends after spending 2 years researching ingredients and properties.
Pet care products. Dog soap, paw and nose balm, etc.
I am going to offer different soaps more, smaller runs, but more options … just for retail.
I am going to bring Wild Bergamot into the line up on a regular basis.
I am looking at my line and making some changes. What to keep, what to toss.
I am going to send out more newsletters and not just occasionally to offer sales. But more informative. Perhaps sharing there what I do here.
And I am determined to make 2014, the best year yet.
