2010~The year in review~

Looking back, it has been a year of ups and downs. I'm sure many will agree with me. It's been difficult financially, while working part-time and trying to build a jewelry business in a poor economy. This year has been filled with many emotional difficulties, and a few relationship issues too. I now realize that I did not journal as much as I had liked to. It is so therapeutic! I actually go my calendar off the wall to look back on events from the past year.
Speaking of my jewelry business; it has been a year of learning and growth. I've managed to get my jewelry into 3 local retail locations; 2 of which have prospered this year. I've discovered new venues to showcase my work, and took part in more arts and crafts shows this year than I originally thought I could manage to do. It is good to push yourself sometimes, just to see how much you can accomplish.
~Things I've learned~
No matter how much networking you do on-line with your product line, it is much easier to sell in person.
It's worth the investment to purchase a "knuckle buster", otherwise known as a manual credit card processor.
Having less doesn't mean you have to be unhappy.
Time is precious.
Be grateful for all the things and blessings you receive; every little small one counts!
Don't be afraid to be yourself! and
Don't give up before the miracle happens!
I wish you all a safe, happy, healthy, and prosperous new year with many blessings!

our lives look very similar! I had the same issues. Liked your comment about selling in person. I need to find more shows/festivals this year. That is a new resolution. Thanks for the nudge! Wishing you a happy and fulfilling year. {:-D
What a great post! I think we can all learn a thing or two from your words :)
Wishing you a wonderful 2011!!!

Happy New Year!

This is a great post - what you learned and reading about your accomplishments. I agree - it's good to push yourself. I believe we can do more than we give ourselves credit for sometimes.
