Happy New Year everyone! We made it!
I hope the holidays were good to you all and you had lots of love, laughter and good food!
This year starts off by realizing this is my first winter really as a business and I've learned it's cold in my garage where my studio is. So I created a "winter bench" so I can continue to keep on making jewelry without freezing. The soldering is still in the garage, but the bench work will be in a little spare room off the garage.
I feel good about this move because it's allowing me to keep on doing what I love. I'm still learning how to incorporate silversmithing into my life to keep my business going and not have it be a hobby. That's part of the journey.
If you had told me 5 yrs ago this is what I'd be doing right now, I wouldn't of believed you! So thank you to 2015 for teaching me a lot about being on my own.
Now in 2016 I'm taking another class at my local Jr. College this February. I'm excited about that. There is always more to learn and I'm still young at this craft and want more knowledge in my basket of tricks!
So with all that going on, I think Winter will hopefully be full of new creations coming from my imagination! I can't wait to see!
Have a great January and Hug Often!
