I've seen some people on Facebook this month listing one thing each day they are grateful for. While I'm a very grateful person, I haven't tried that. I fear it would go the route my New Year's resolutions used to go...back when I made them. About 3 days in, I'd be forgetting what I was supposed to be doing! Good intentions and all...
But I can tell you that I'm grateful for so many things this year!
- I'm grateful for my loving family that cares for me when my health fails, supports me in my endeavors, cheers me on in my successes!
- I'm grateful for wonderful friends, neighbors, and colleagues, who share their knowledge without the worry of competition, who are ready for a chat or a walk or a meal out when I am.
- I'm exceptionally grateful to have had this blog and you dear participants with me for over a year.
- And I'm ever so happy to be approaching the one-year anniversary of my online store on Artfire. Without your help, support, and suggestions (and liking and friending...) that never would have happened! I'm up to 92 sales and crossing my fingers and hoping I hit 100 before the year is up!
In order to help some folks out with a handmade holiday bargain...while hopefully meeting my goals, I've just reduced 16 items (including several holiday items) to up to 50% off! If you are interested, please visit the new "Clearance Sale" section of my Sharyl's Jewelry store on Artfire!
Thanks to you all! ~Sharyl
P.S. My copies of the Dec. 2012 issue of "Beads Trends" just arrived, and I'm also grateful that a piece of mine is published there! Whoo-pie! :-)
