Easy Does it...

The word for 2009 is balance. After a mad, hectic, crazy, stressful and exhausting 2008 this year is about going with the flow and enjoying my work and my home life. If I've made any resolutions this year it's to learn to say no; to not commit myself to everything that comes along and to focus on what is really important and do it well. I have clear goals and anything else is just a distraction. So there! Let's see how long it lasts. With the recession taking hold it's time to take things seriously so since Christmas I have been reorganising myself, looking at what I want to do and how I can make it happen which has meant a clear out of surplus stock and going back to basics. Feels good. I am slowly building up a library of patterns and am going to have fun turning them into different things for the shop. What are your plans for 2009? Hope it brings everything you wish for and more!

I am about to start my planning for 2009 for real. I need to think carefully for a while first and feel what I really want to do.

I am starting my very own business soon, working as a writer, editor, artist - I plan to sell art, photographs, handmade jewellery and notebooks. That's a lot of things but it's what I love to to. Still, I need to really focus now.
Or just jump in.
I don't know.
