I've made some goals for 2007
So, I'm really trying to start this year off right. I'd really like to do more marketing this year and promotions for my etsy shop. I'm getting involved in some fun promos & swaps and am having a good time challenging myself daily. Ya' know...reaching deep down into my creative mind, dusting off the cobwebs and coming up with some great new, inspiring designs for this year. Just keep your eyes peeled.
My latest idea stemmed from our homeschool study of Helen Keller and the braille alphabet. My 9 yr old daughter was fascinated by braille and we quickly delved into the study of it. Braille initial pendants are the result. We are donating $2.00 from each sale of a pendant to the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB). This will further the homeschool study of braille as my daughter helps make the pendants, keeps track of the proceeds to benefit the AFB and takes pride in doing charity work. Other braille pendants are in the works.
Right now, I'm off to knead some clay to make pendants for the Happily Handmade Giveaway...this is my first time participating and I'm nervous/excited :)
