Poems about the sea

So I'm currently collecting songs and poems about the sea, to inspire ideas and help me come up with titles for pieces.

And I made this while I was at it!

2013 Review and 2014 Resolutions!

Since it seems to be a thing, I thought I'd review the last year and mention my fabulous (and perhaps fanciful?) plans for 2014.

2013 saw:

  • Major results from my many experiments with resin, culminating in my current line of resin and sand pieces.
  • Establishing some good variety in pieces for my production line, and getting a system in place for getting a number of pieces made at once.
  • Have placed my work in the shop of The Craft and Folk Art Museum and Freehand Gallery.
  • A total redesign of the website.
  • The launch of my mailing list.
  • Monthly pieces posted on the blog from January to September.  Plenty of pieces made after that, but I completely failed to blog them properly!

In 2014, I look forward to:
  • Placing my work into an additional location in January. (More on this soon!)
  • Having a booth at a high end craft show or two.
  • Building additional new relationships with stores, and maintaining the ones I currently have.
  • Focusing more heavily on finishing some larger pieces, preferably in the first quarter of the year!
  • Getting some fancy new photographs this month to better represent the collection. 
  • Maintaining a greater variety of pieces in my Etsy Shop.
  • Sticking to blogging and getting back into good blogging habits!

September Project

I've slammed out quite a bit of work this month!  None of the pieces are big by themselves, but they're pretty formidable as a whole.  I'm really looking forward to working on a couple of larger pieces, finally finishing up a few necklaces.  I have, believe it or not, no less than four necklaces in progress, at varying stages of completeness.  Soon, soon!  (At least, that's what I keep telling myself!)
