SO, how about them Giants?!  Tee Hee.  I had a very productive weekend shop-wise.  I'm proud of myself.  I made 11 cards (that's a lot of quilling) and a set of hairpins.  Plus I finished a new paper flower ring that I had started months ago.  I guess the few inches of snow came in handy.

Here she is:

Find ring here.

This one has a new and more durable filigree ring base.
It's such a pretty soft lemony yellow.
I have lots more colors I want to try out.  

Seems like I always have tons of ideas and things I want to accomplish.  At times I overwhelm myself with ideas and don't ever wind up getting to bring them to fruition.  I've talked about that before and how I wind up feeling frustrated. But, I can't be so hard on myself.  I have to accept that I do what I can.  And, yes, I DO want to push myself harder and grow as well.  So, one day at a time, right?

So what are Sweet Spot's goals for this new year?

I want to:

1.  Get the courage up to get my cards in a few brick and mortar stores.

2.  Do my first ever craft fair. (I'm SO scared!!)

3.  Do lots more DIY's and even perhaps offer some PDF's at the shop.

Let's hope my health and my kids let me get around to doing all these things.  They may not seem like a lot to most people but I am really shy in person (I know, hard to believe).  It's just really always been easy for me to express myself in writing.  But, when I meet people I am not so chatty or confident.  And I come across as (dare I say) ...NASTY.  But, I swear, I'm not!  (Promise!)  Ask my friends.  They know the real me.  

I'm on my way to meeting my first goal.  Once I do, I will share it with you guys.  As for the craft fair.  Let's just say I'm gonna have to pray about that a lot.  I don't know why but I find the idea so daunting.  I don't even know where/how to begin.  I do have a venue I've been eyeing for over a year.  Crazy, right?  Baby steps... 

First step... let me get these packages over to the Post Office. (You know how much I love that place!)

Have a SWEET week! ;)
