Goodbye 2014 & Welcome 2015!

Happy New Year !

2014 was a good year for my business, and it has grown a lot partly due to my new line items I started this year and also due to one new farmers’ markets I have been participating in once a month.   As a result, I have made new friends, and got involved in some crafting groups where other craft business owners  network and give each other advice.   This year I have added infinity scarves, backpacks, cosmetic bags, to my brand.  I would like to thank all of my fans who have helped my business in some fashion this year.      

I had a very stressful year in 2014 due to my 2 aging parents with dementia.  I had to move my dad to a new home two times within 3 months, and I didn't have any help from family.  There were times when I thought I was going to lose my sanity,  but with friends praying for me, God helped me survive  the storms! So, I am praying for a much better 2015 with much less stress! 
  I got some unique surprises this Christmas including a package from Santa Claus, and also got some other gifts I wasn't expecting!    It took me a while to guess who played Santa,  but I finally figured it out a few days after Christmas! 

Also, I got a nice new toy for Christmas to myself and my business!!   A new sewing machine Viking Opal 650!  I am really excited about what I will be able to do with this new machine, and it will definitely make my life a lot easier and be beneficial to my business!!

Today, I am off to see my Dad at the nursing home and to pick up a much needed brand new cell phone!  The one I currently have has been replaced 3 times in 2.5 years, and currently has it’s own agenda . Lol.  After charging it all night, it sometimes says the battery is below 5 percent!  This has gone on for a while now & I finally decided it was not the battery but the phone!  Anyway, I am excited about what the new year will bring .  Hope you all have a Happy, Healthy & Safe New Year!  May God bless you in 2015!  

Many of my items have been reduced for clearance in my Etsy Shop, ( see the clearance Sale items section.)  and on my web site.

The "toadally" cool backpack makes me (almost) wish my son were still that age. On the other hand, I have sort of gotten used to him being out of the house.

Best of luck with all the new categories this year!
