New Year's Day is always so full of hope for me. This year I am thankful for all the great people in my life. I have made many new friends and colleagues in the past year, and have had many great opportunities that have carried me into this new year. I am grateful for all the customers who have been so kind to me and have enjoyed my beads. You are all the reason that I am excited to get up and work everyday. I am thankful to be able to do this for a living, and it is all of my excellent clients who make it possible.
I have many new things in store for 2007: new lines of beads, an expanding line of jewelry, and many new articles, projects, and kits coming out. I am super excited to work on all these new things!
I also want to celebrate the birthday of a group we started 3 years ago yesterday: Beads-of-Clay. Who would have thought on New Years Day 2004 when it was just me and Andi fumbling around with a Yahoo group, that we would in 3 years have almost 600 members interested in ceramic beads, a website, and an excellent community of artists working together? I am in awe and am so proud to be a part of the group!
Happy New Year, everyone!
