Most artisans who sell their items online have stocked their shops, and promoted, promoted, promoted their handmade items. I admire them for it and I heartily support the purchasing of handmade items for Christmas gifts, etc. But this year I am pulling back from the selling aspect. Those who know me a bit are aware that I have had a year of challenges that have directed my focus and energy elsewhere. This Christmas, I need to make items for my family and that comes first with me.
However, I do intend to get back into making things for my online shops after the holiday season, providing that no new challenges prevent me from doing so. I also am contemplating getting back into my artwork, both drawing/painting and digitally. The New Year is a time of redirecting my focus. Oh, and I have new plans for my JellyBean Critters.
