Happy new year to you. I hope 2019 is off to a good start. Do you celebrate the new year? Make resolutions? Or is the 1st just another day?
Sometimes the new year doesn’t feel like anything special to me. Other times, it feels good to step forward into something new. This year I’m feeling optimistic, which is nice, so I’m holding onto that feeling for as long as I can.
For Carrot Condo, 2018 was a good year. I had fun making things, I learned a lot during the making-process of each product, and I managed to stay patient enough not to give up due technical challenges. I built up some tenacity in 2018 that has already helped me out in the new year as I continue to tackle technology.
So, what about 2019? What do you want to see at Carrot Condo? What should I create?
I have ideas. And I’ve already started a few projects. But it helps me to hear what others think. At recent craft bazaars, I got a lot of requests for cat illustrations. Also, my tiny stationery tins nearly sold out (only two left). And my monsters made a lot of people smile and chuckle.
I know I whined about how labor-intensive the tiny stationery sets were, but …… I’ve decided to do more. A few anyway. Maybe a few more owls. Maybe cats. Maybe bats.
What else? And what are your plans for 2019? What are your thoughts for the new year? I’d really like to hear. You don’t have to leave a message here, if it feels too public. Email, or send me a message in FB or IG.
However your year has started, I sincerely hope you have plenty of days of cheer, friendship, and adventure in the year ahead.
Thank you, as always, for reading.
