This may very well be my last blog for 2012. With the many unfortunate events during the year, there's also just as many to be thankful for (maybe even more.) First and foremost being that we all live to see another day despite the December 21st doomsday prediction. We are all given another chance to change our course of life if we wanted to. With this chance, i hope we all choose well and be happy without causing misfortune or pain to others.
For me, personally, I am thankful for God's undying love even with all my short-comings, for family and friends who never left my side during the worst of times, for all the pain and life altering events of 2012 that taught me a few lessons in life, for a career in art that although it wasn't what I got my Bachelor's in, I am still given a chance to find it.
I am also thankful for the editors of magazines that published my work like this one here from Belle Armoire Jewelry (should be in Barnes and Nobles stores now.) They have given me the affirmation that i am meant to do this.
With the many thanks, comes the New Year's resolution. Many of my actual resolutions are too personal to share.The non-personal includes: Focusing on my designs. Not many know, but I am restructuring my website and designs to sell. I am transitioning to fine jewelry with the least being sterling silver and most at 18k gold (24k on select bezels.) My aim was to launch in January but this may be delayed a bit. With this restructure, I am selling out my one of a kind pieces on etsy:
There's maybe another 30 pieces I have to load on the store... It isn't easy letting go but something that must be done.
Another resolution is blogging more this 2013. Finding time is always a challenge but possible. I just need to try harder is all. I afterall have committed myseld to Bluemoon Beads. This said, here are my two pieces from the December Box.
I have to end this blog here... I am turning 29 tomorrow and there's still a lot to be done!
Have a happy holidays everyone!
