Back in the Swing of Things

It's always hard to get back into the swing of things and to get into the new year. Especially cause I savor the time to reset, regroup, rest and recoup. But it's slowly happening...
I've cleaned and organized my studio and now I'm figuring out my next steps. 

One thing that's helping me with that is my new Passion Planner. Check out this video...
I love the idea of implementing the bigger ideas/goals into everyday life and reflecting on the progress all within a day planner. 
I'm currently geeking out on excel spread sheets. I've pulled all of my data from wholesaling to shops last year and now I'm using it to figure out what sold best and how to use this info for the future. I will be tightening up my wholesale line while planning on adding to it and making a new catalog. 
I'm also taking an online course on wholesaling and loving it, it's just what I was looking for!
There's not much time now to really delve into all of this since Valentines day is right around the corner so I'm looking forward to more fully pursuing this in a month from now. 
Meanwhile I have 4 store orders to work on and mail out for Pure.Original, Trinket, The Shoe Horn and Common Deer. So I've been busy making orders and getting back to production.
I'm also getting ready for a private Valentine's Day trunk show.
Whew. It's been good to catch up on reading and seeing friends and taking things a bit slower. 
Hope your 2015 has gotten off to a great start!
