Wow, 2011 is here! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love, friends, and family.
I took full advantage of the holidays this year relaxing with family, and eating more than my fair share of goodies! I feel refreshed, and ready to get back into the swing of things! I’m excited for lots of new adventures both personally, as well as with Simone Richmond Jewellery.
The past couple of years my dear partner in crime has taken to naming the year, based on what sets the tone over the course of the New Year festivities. He coined 2010 “The Year of Disaster Narrowly Averted.” Needless to say, I was on the edge of my seat most of the year! Despite a few bumps in 2010, overall it was great, and I have lots to look forward to in the New Year. After trying on a few different “titles” for this year, I’m sticking with “The Year of New Adventures.”
And getting this after my New Year’s Eve dinner, I think it’s even more fitting:
I don’t know that I will be able to do something “unusual” every single day, but I will try & add something to the mix as often as possible.
Simone Richmond Jewellery has some new adventures coming this year as well! Among them are: participating in the Toronto Spring One of a Kind Show in early April (scroll down for the dates, the Spring site isn’t up yet), hopefully making it to the SNAG Metalsmith Conference in Seattle at the end of May, refreshing my work bench space, and getting more of my work out into the world.
I am so grateful for all of the support this past year, not only from those who have purchased my work, but from everyone who has taken the time to help me and my business. I wouldn’t be here without everyone’s willingness to share a little something with me: your time, your experiences, your feedback. Here’s to a wonderful New Year, and I hope that you will continue to follow along with some of my new adventures, and share some of yours too!
