I just thought I would write a little happy New Year message to anyone who visits the blog.
I’ve had a wonderful Christmas at home, recharging batteries, over indulging and even playing with the pooches in pristine crunchy snow – hurray!
I hope you and your fur babies have had a lovely Christmas too.
Today though I’m starting to feel like it’s almost back to reality, so I have spent the day trying to get back into the idea that it’s almost time to start work again… I’ve spent a couple of hours completing the Design Trust’s mini questionnaire of how to review your your business year. As a creative and highly self critical person it’s always easy to think I haven’t done enough, or to feel frustrated that I haven’t brought many of my ideas to fruition… but today was about taking an honest and measured approach, looking at what I have achieved and where I need to focus my efforts in 2018. The questionnaire left me feeling positive about my achievements in 2017 and well prepared for the year ahead.
I plan to celebrate how far my small business has come and want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported me… stockists, customers, pooches, teachers, followers, peers/fellow creatives, family and friends. I’ve feel very lucky to have so much support – thank you so much, I couldn’t have done it without you 🙂
I’ll be back to work on the 2nd January with some gorgeous photos to share from winners of the Spring 2018 Model search and some exciting new stock to share with you.
All the very best and wishing you a pawesome, happy and healthy 2018 full of dog hair, wet noses and furry hugs!
