I've been a tad under the weather these past few days, but I didn't want to miss out on a little review of some of the best bits of 2013!
1. I opened my online shop to sell my dolls and illustrations!
This is a big one for me because one of my resolutions for this year was to BE BRAVE.
I had a hard time choosing which platform to use, and ended up with an Etsy and a Storenvy, but I've had the best response from Storenvy. I also met an awesome group of artists and crafters, who have been super supportive and become great friends! If you're looking for a handmade community Storenvy is the place to be!
I am also excited to say that even though my little shop wasn't open for very long, I made 10 sales this year! Which is just amazing! I've had a great response to my artwork, and I've been cooking up all sorts of cute ideas for 2014!
I drew this for her as the cover of her next zine!
I've also bought so many zines, with plans to buy more. I have an idea for a zine of my own, I just need to make some time to draw everything....sounds like another goal for 2014!
3. I had my 1 year blogiversary giveaway.
I moved my blog from Wordpress to here, but before I did, I had a wonderful giveaway with great feedback. It was so much fun!
4. I finished my 52 week project!
I actually finished something! This is a real challenge for me, because I am all over the place. For instance, I still haven't finished my 30 Days of Lists from March....Amelia made it easy for me to do this challenge because I am constantly taking pictures of her. I'm trying to figure out what to do for 2014's challenge.
5. Blog re-design!
This is a more recent accomplishment, but I am very proud of my logo and blog redesign. I just got my business cards in the mail today with my new logo. I'm super excited about this brand that I am creating, and look forward to where I can take it in 2014!
I just want to thank everyone who reads my blog and who has supported me by purchasing items in my shop or an ad space. It really means the world to me! I hope you have an awesome New Year's!
