They don't work

New year's resolutions suck - they never work.. considering.. it's been 2 weeks since my last blog and I ate about 10 pieces of chocolate yesterday.. oops :) Although, I did buy a binder and some colored tabs yesterday, so being organized is still a possibility!

I decided I'm going to be in the MSU Arts & Crafts show May 16th & 17th. I have to send in the application, and I'm not sure if it's juried or not, but I hope I can get in! I'll be one busy bee getting ready for it.

I just created a facebook page for Brown Joey Designs and I'm hoping to generate some more views to my Etsy site. I also hung up a flyer with some of my business cards attached in a local coffee shop. And.. I met with a local artist last weekend who gave me some of his really cool glass pendants he made.. and he wants ME to make necklaces that match! How exciting!

Ok.. time to eat lunch!

So am I horrible at this blogging thing or what?! New year's resolution #2 - Work harder at blogging (with #1 being becoming a healthier person).

It's 2009 - how quickly did 2008 pass us by? I am glad to start a new year - it's always refreshing to think you can start all over. This year, I'm really going to focus on becoming a real business - I'm really excited! Which brings me to...

New year's resolution #3 - become more organized! I am vowing to keep track of sales, trends (what people are buying more of), and organizing my home in preparation for motherhood! I'm making a promise to myself that when we have children, everything is going to be super organized.. think it's possible? Yah, I don't either, but I'm going to try my best.

New year's resolution #4 - sell brown joey jewelry in art shows! I looked up the Ann Arbor art festival online tonight (yes, it's a very exciting Saturday night...) and I about died.. $625 for a space!! *gulp* guess I'll have to wait until I'm a "business" (see N.Y.R. #3). :)

Until next time...
