I did make a good effort at the beginning of this year, creating a vision board and all. I lost 11 lbs in 6 months and then my scale broke, which of course meant I didn't have to weigh myself or watch what I ate ever again, right? So.... here I am feeling a little disappointed in myself as usual, however I do know my m.o. and that typically means I'll get fed up soon enough. So, once again I'll recommit and I can start going to bed early enough to wake up by 4:30 to hit the old treadmill.
Unfortunately that won't be happening any time over the next month because I've also recommitted myself to my crafting and I've started a new product line. As if headbands, hair bows, dog collars, and key fobs weren't enough, I've recently rediscovered my die cutting machines (Cricut) and also got a new one for my birthday (Silhouette). It had been a long time since I made cutouts, and even then it was mostly greeting cards and such. Now I am working with vinyl and it's like a whole new world has opened up. I am having a great time designing car window decals or making fun mugs and glasses. I will be doing my first craft show in a year next Saturday at the Danvers MA YMCA. I am so excited and nervous at the same time. I'll have my regular products, but now I am adding on this whole other line, so my already jam-packed table will be even more jam-packter (yes, I made that a word).
I guess on the plus side, at least I am not snacking as much in the evening because I cannot wait to get working on my projects. I have a ton of orders to finish while also bumping up my inventory for the fair. So, as I am creating new things I am hoping to keep everyone updated on here as well as on my Facebook and Twitter accounts.
In the meantime, here are a few samples of what I've been working on. I love the creativity this inspires. What a great way to express yourself, than by making a unique decal for your car or coffee mug. Perfect gifts for hard to buy for people as well! I know I'll be making a few personalized ones for friends this year!!
Until next time......
