New Year, New Monday, New Goals

I’m working through all the business end-of-year crazy: inventory, bookkeeping, estimated tax filings; and trying to keep up with orders. But I’m also looking ahead to a shiny new year full of new possibilities. I’m in the process of relaunching this blog, so new ideas, product, and content coming soonish.

This year, our Christmas Corner is decked out with the taped-together CB-tree, as well as a Cylon — because who doesn’t want a Christmas Cylon? Thanks to a cracked camera lens on my phone, the picture is complete with JJ-level lens flare.
