Happy New YEAR!--2010 WOW!

Remember when 1999 was nearing the end and we all worried about the new 2000 year ??? Were you worried about losing everything on your computer, because it may not recognize the 2000 number? I remember that! And I can't believe that it is, now, 10 (TEN) years later!!! Where have the years gone!?

This will be fun-----Please leave a comment about what you did the last 10 years that really made a difference in how you are going to live the next 10 years and the person who leaves the 10th comment will win a handmade gift from me! The 20th comment will also win, etc! This will be a lot of fun! Please mention what part of the world you are from!!

Now, what happened in my last 10 years, that made a difference in how I live the next 10 years? It was when I joined The Society of Creative Designers. This was an organization for designers to learn more about how to make a business with their creative designs. Such as; how to get published, how to be professional, how to present yourself, how to sell your ideas, how to demonstrate, how to teach, etc. I could go on and on...In the last 10 years I've learned a LOT on how to grow and work a business. Now this society has merged with The Craft and Hobby Association (CHA).  There are many more designers and many more opportunities for designers!

so---in my case--- the last 10 years has prepared me for the next 10 years in my business. I've become smarter about how I want to run my business and lately decided that I would LOVE to license my art and manufacturer product designs. To get me started on this new adventure, I'll have my first booth at the CHA show in less than 2 weeks! I'll show my art to thousands of people who attend this trade show, as well as many VIP's who have been invited to attend and look , specifically, at the License & Design section...where my booth will be...

If you'll be attending the CHA show...please stop by and say "hey!" my booth is #2645!

Have a great day! Back to work!
