New Year, New Beginnings

As is proper at the turn of the year, re-introduction can be in order. I haven’t been as regular with this blog as I would have like when I started, but I am going to make an effort to change that with 2016.

I will reach the big 60 in April of 2016. Not sure yet how I will mark that yet, but it does deserve some sort of acknowledgement. Especially since this year feels like a year of turning corners or new beginnings.

After suffering 3 small strokes (TIA’s) and discovering that I have a small hole between the chambers of the heart, I began to realize that it is Never too late to begin again. So that is what I am going to do.

There are many things I would like to do and/or try.  Now I just need to define the things I want to accomplish this year and make a plan to get them done.

I want to explore some different facets of fiber art, jewelry making, book binding and writing. I have a self-help style book that is designed to help individuals or groups to discover their uniqueness and how to make that uniqueness work for their life thereby creating a life they are happy with and love to live.

I want to be able to sell my fiber art to people because that will bring me an income that is not dependent on working a 9 to 5 job for someone else. To that end, I have created Cranberry Leopard Emporium as my business entity. I hope to present products here as well as in other markets.
