Well it’s been a very exciting year. Lots of changes for me, some good, some not so good and definitely some great ones. Retiring from my full time job after 30+ years has been the biggest change. It’s crazy how routines are a mind set and how your body reacts to change. I love getting up and not knowing what my day will be like.
Sticks and Pins attended a couple of craft and knitting fairs this past year. I can’t believe how much I enjoy being out there talking to people, meeting people that have purchased my bags and getting inspired by their positive comments. I look forward to more and new fairs in 2017.
One of the most exciting things I did was join fellow artisans and crafters in showcasing our products at The Nooks. This was a really big step for me. I was putting myself out there everyday in a store setting not knowing whether I had a product that would appeal to the general public. It has been great! Working on new products for The General Store to showcase in 2017 is keeping me busy.
A big thank you to Colleen Imrie, owner of the 4 Nook shops, the great staff and all the great customers who purchased my stuff.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
