Another year has come to a close.  It has been such a busy month and especially the last two weeks of the year for me personally, I have had no time to reflect.  I hope to take some time to think and ponder on this last year, there are so many things to digest.  I usually do not have resolutions but I think this year I may create some. The new year is a good time to start fresh, wipe the slate clean.  One of my favorite blogs is Design Sponge and they have a terrific section of New Year's to do's.   Healthy recipes, cleaning to do's and resolutions from a variety of artists.  Maybe you will find some inspiration.  Right now I am off to start cleaning the storage room!

First I do want to thank a few people.   To all of the supporters of the handmade movement, those who encourage and assist us in so many ways.  To those shoppers who buy our handmade goods.  To those who make a conscious decision to buy local.  To all the makers and fellow Etsy sellers around the globe. And to my fellow Etsy New Yorkers,  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
