Hello! Happy New Year!

Are you ready for 2013?! ๐Ÿ™‚

I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted but I’m back and I’m really hoping to make 2013 my year. Over the holidays, between kids, working at Pier 1, and the obligatory Christmas cold, I didn’t get anywhere near what I hoped to get done, done. But the Pier 1 gig is over, I’m fortunate to get some more unemployment, and if I don’t do this now, I never will.

Sales at the Depot aren’t great. I mentioned this in my last post and it’s not changed. But again, lack of focus and marketing hasn’t helped. So promoting my work is going to be hugely important. This blog will help, I hope. I’m planning on setting up a blog schedule and really keeping this updated. Right now my plan is to publish M/W/F regularly with largely pre-planned posts – and of course, update when exciting things happen at any time!

So, for example, this Wednesday, I’m going to post about the faux french provincial desk that should have been an easy turnover, but is now proving to be another headache! I seem to be good at finding these sorts of pieces. ๐Ÿ˜›

My Etsy shop is still active and I’ve made a few small sales with accessories. I think Krrb is good exposure but not a great place to actually sell. One of the things I’m working on now is building my Facebook base. It’s a good way to network with other like-minded people and start building a local following. This week I will try to figure out how to have links to all my sites on the side of this blog.

Anyway, I’m not sure how many of you are still out there, but if you are, welcome back! Here’s hoping all my good intentions and plans come to fruition this year!
