I wasn't the best blogger last year! I was concentrating more on opening my Etsy shop and my Facebook Page, Pinterest and Instagram. I seemed to lose touch with my own blog but still enjoyed finding inspiration through yours.
I must say, I'm embarrassed to say I've sold nothing from my Etsy shop. I spent so much time on it I'm now actually quite disillusioned. Girlfriends who've bought my sea dolls think they need to be seen to be truly appreciated as they're tactile and photos of them just don't do them justice. I think they're just trying to make me feel better! What are your thoughts?!! Where should I go from here?
Here are some of my favourite creations from 2012 and early 2013.
How is 2013 treating you so far? I must say mine is cruising along just fine (for the moment). My boys have settled back into school really well (believe it or not) and I'm enjoying creating again. I've also decided to not be so hard on myself this year and to go with the flow and accept things as they come. I'm not going to overcommit to things I really don't enjoy and am going to do more things that I love or have never tried. Well, that's the idea anyway. Love, Px
