Happy New Year
Its been a while since I have tapped out a post on my laptop for the Etsy Ireland Blog. Well, its a New Year and the time has come to say hello again...... So, Hello Again.......
I am not one to make New Year Resolutions, I used to be but I gave that up a long time ago. So many good intentions never fulfilled...... So, what to do instead!!!!
I have come across 2 positive alternatives while catching up on my reading over the last week which I have embraced for 2012.
Firstly, before saying goodbye to 2011 I sat yesterday and wrote down all of the things I achieved during the year and I must say I was surprised at how long the list was. It included all of my Etsy events, people I met, places I went to, new skills (I tried a bit of weaving for the first time), as well lessons learned from mistakes I made, etc. etc. etc.
Secondly, going forward into the new year I listed a number of new things I would like to try, places to go to, etc a type of bucket list. I came up with 52, one for each week of the year. Now I will look forward to planning them but wont be too discouraged if I dont get all of them ticked off the list before the bells ring out for 2013 as they can be added to the following year.
So, why dont you try to do the same - list what you have achieved and gather together what you would like 2012 to bring you.
I wish you all the best of New Years. May the Crafting Fairies visit you often and bring you creativity and sales to make this a positive year to remember.
