Shiny Happy New Year 2023

Happy New Year!

You may have stumbled across this blog because you know me, or maybe you follow me on Instagram, or have visited my Etsy shop, or seen me live on Twitch. Maybe all, some, or none of those things. Regardless of how you arrived here: Welcome!

My plan for 2023 is somewhat simple: Make and do things that bring me happiness and fulfillment. Continue reading

Incoming Refresh

At the moment, it’s Saturday afternoon. I’m sitting in my living room with my husband, both of us working on our computers, and watching ST:TNG on Pluto TV.

I haven’t updated this blog in almost 9 months, which is disappointing. I’m frustrated, because I spend a lot of time creating content – on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitch, and Discord. I’m not alone in this. But the ease of using those platforms, and the immediacy of feedback, has kept me posting there. I’ve lost sight of the fact that putting time & effort into creating content for myself and my brand is always better than creating content for platforms I have zero control over.

I don’t exactly know how this blog will evolve. But I think it’s time to step back from social media and focus again on posting and building a following here. I hope you’ll join me.


New Year, New Monday, New Goals – 2022

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. Until then, here’s wishing you the best for 2022!

Mid-December Round Up

December has been a crazy month, trying to finish up the last of my orders, while attempting to wrap up business tasks ahead of the end of the year. I’ve abbreviated my morning practice to allow for some much needed sleep — moving my gratitude journaling and affirmations to the end of the day, and using the early morning to write out my main goals, and set intentions for the day.

More than anything, I’m thankful for new and return customers, and for all of the support of my online community. As this is year is winding down, I’m looking forward to 2022 and new opportunities and possibilities. I think now more than ever I’m ready to pull out all the stops, and get to the next level with my business, and reach all of my personal goals. I’m looking forward to helping others reach their goals as well. 💙

New Month, New Goals – Dec 2021

It’s December, and a chance to close out 2021 with positivity and momentum.

Use the next 31 days to figure out what you want to do, have, be. And then get to work.

It may be something you can put into motion immediately, but more likely, it will require several small steps to get there. That’s ok. Decide on the steps you need to take to put you on your new path. And then, take action. Without taking action, you’re just thinking. Have faith in yourself. Believe in what you want, and your ability to get it. Make that call, write that email, learn that thing, reach out to that mentor. Take action and make things happen. You can do this.
