Happy New Year!!
While I don’t make resolutions, I do spend some time reflecting on the past year.
After spending some time watching my own internal highlight reel, I have to say that aside from the kitten breaking his leg, the year was fairly good. As always there is room for improvement, but overall I am satisfied with my year.
There is one accomplishment that I am most proud of this year. It involves my jewelry business, Dragon and Butterfly Design, in order to grow my business I decided to do some in person selling at craft fairs. In fact, I did three craft fairs.
I am an introvert, so going being at a craft show and interacting with a steady stream of people is a huge deal for me. Even at my part time job I am not required to deal with people constantly. So, doing one craft fair, let alone three, is a huge deal. I won’t say that I enjoyed the shows–they were stressful–but afterward I did feel very glad that I’d done them. I even plan on doing a few more in the coming year.
What was your biggest accomplishment for 2015?
