a new year

Wow, 2012 already. Happy New Year! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

I've seriously neglected updating my blogs this past couple of months. The reason is that I've started to take on more freelance graphic design work and I'm having trouble balancing all the things I need to do in a day. Blogging, sadly, has slipped down the list. I would love to sit in my studio all day sewing and embroidering and making new products for Primrose. But the simple truth is that I'm not making enough money doing it. With the poor economy, people aren't shopping as much. And prices for everything (except, strangely enough, my garbage collection, which is $3 less per month - yeah!) have gone up dramatically.

Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I still make occasional antique mall buying trips and will have cool things to show you. I'm going to try out a few new products this winter—things that will be on my website this spring if they work out. I may talk about other things, too—who knows?
