goals...

...i can't believe it has been exactly 1 year since i left a job i was good at to run Maya Road. time flies... tonight we are going to a party where i will meet some of the naysayers that told me small businesses don't make it and tell them how wrong they are. but they should have known better. i will admit it is hard being a small business though as we don't have the endless capital and we watch our costs and inventory pretty carefully. it is hard. sometimes i do get a bit discouraged not b/c i don't believe in our items or what we do but b/c we are small and in ways limited in things we can/cannot do but in many ways, we can also move more stealthly and quicker.

... every year, i made a list of semi-resolutions. things i want to accomplish but not something i will die if i don't . i did have a resolution to be published as i hadn't been before and before i knew it, i had found the niche for me! i even made the cover in Dec of paper crafts (well not me but my project) and that was pretty awesome for me. my project is in the upper right corner (the gift card holder). and i am happy to say that most things that i have published i use (cards, etc). (still trying to fight the pack rat tendencies). i also love to experiment and mix things - our products with others, different "canvases" etc. this year will be tough, we have some goals for the company and i have some personal ones too balanced out with our new arrival-to-be. it should be interesting and challenging but i love it. i wouldn't have it any other way.
