Here's to a new year!

I think from the beginning I knew I would make it here but I never thought it would happen with such a big bang!! Today is the 1st year anniversary of my 2 Sisters Handcrafted shop opening. Wow! What can happen in a year is amazing!

My first piece listed:

The long story of how it all began I'll save for another time. Today I'm going to allow myself to celebrate what I've accomplished. I'm not much of a self promoter. That doesn't come naturally to me, but I can say I am very proud of  all my efforts! It sounds like something I would say to my girls. I hope they can one day look back at what I've done and think they are proud of me too.

My intention was to find an identity for myself outside of "mom." I admit I had gotten lost in that role. Everything I do, I do for my girls, my family. I don't want to change that, but I had hoped to get back a little bit of the girl I used to be. It's only been a year but what I've learnt so far is I can't go back to being that person. I like who I have become, and I find it easier to focus on what is important.

My recent piece gifted to Khloey Kardashian:

So, I will continue working hard, making my family proud. I'll push myself to try new things. I'll go forward with an attitude of "I can." Who knew I would be making pieces for celebrities and official award show swag bags. If I can do that, I can do anything. And I'm looking forward to it. ;)

New branding for a new year!
