A Project A Week?

I'm not sure if I can actually do it, but I'd really like to make a goal for the year of designing one new thing each week. It might not be literally one a week ... maybe one week I'll make four items and then have a dry spell.

But I want them to be actual new designs, not just remaking current designs for filling orders.

For example, this necklace was in my head all last week and I FINALLY was able to finish it up Sunday night. I actually started working on it Wednesday or Thursday but could only work in a few minute incriments.

The earrings match but I'm going to sell those separately in case someone just wants one or the other but not both (my mom is like this...she doesn't like sets sold together).

So, although I'm a little late, this is my semi-New Year's resolution. We'll see how long I can keep it with all the changes and unknowns this year.

Good resolution. I can't wait to see all your new designs this Year. Oh and I love the necklace and earrings.

Thanks! I wish I were more consistent design wise but it's sort of like my personality... all over the place. =)
