2011...Making a List and Checking it Twice!

2010 was not a good year for me and I did not spend much time on my shop or crafting but want to change that in 2011! I have some very ambitious goals for the next few years and if I do not get going they will not happen!

So for 2011:

#1...Craft more adding more items to my inventory. I work shift work but have at least 2 days of a week so I am setting aside 4 hours each week to just go to sewing room and work on item. I do alot of hand quilting on night shifts and that will continue.

#2...Add at least 4 new items a week to my shops.

#3...Find more shops to put my items in for the summer and try to locate a shop that is open year around for consignment as well. Here is one shop I have items in..the Wood Islands Lighthouse!

#4...Use my blog to get more attention in my shop and items.

#5...Attend at least 1 more craft show next Christmas season. This is one of my best show...The Colonel Gray Craft Fair.

What are your plans for 2011?

My year was slow too but I have a lot of quilt tops done and ready to quilt. So, my goal is to get them quilted and in my shop!

Good luck for 2011 - I know how difficult and challenging it can be to work and still have a hobby that can make a little bit of spare change.
