But I thrive in a routine, and that requires an absence of fun distractions to really put into play. I'm also excited about a lot of new ideas for my business in 2014, and have a (dauntingly long) list of articles I want to read, and new designs to try, and analysis to compile from last year. I suppose the downtime is good, because without it I'd still be feeling a bit sleep deprived and bedraggled, but now I'm ready to go!
One other idea I've got for the new year is to add some Etsy "How To's". I get lots of questions about how to sell on Etsy, so I'm going to start covering a few of the topics and posting them on here. If you've got any specific questions let me know, and I'll move them to the top of my list.
I'm wishing everyone a happy and joyful New Year, filled with people you love and work that inspires you. This is your life - make the most of it!
