New Year Word


I miss speaking with you, dearests! this year I decided to adopt one word: HOPE. I ordered this bracelet on Etsy, comes from China, it will probably arrive by the end of the month. I intend to use it as a reminder, to make me think about my choice. this year I found hard to feel the Christmas spirit. I've been knitting to keep my mind busy and distracted, it's a good thing. forgive my absence, I've also been sleeping a lot. today I woke up at 4:30pm. and I'm lacking inspiration to blog as usual. I feel sad no one buy from my shops. don't know what else to do. I'm spending money on publicity. and I really need to have something to keep me busy and dreaming of a better income each month. I'm open to suggestions how to make my work more visible. love you.. xxo

What a pretty bracelet! It's a good daily reminder to keep hope alive.

I've never sold anything online, so I don't have any advice for you as to how to grow your business, but I wish you the best of luck! Sometimes things start slow but build momentum as time goes on. I'm sure next year you'll look back at this time and be happy with how much you have sold!

Oh Ana the economy of the world is in such a state I am afraid the artist of the world are the first to be affected. HOPE is the world Ana it will get better. I was going to jump into the market and have decided to wait myself. Be Happy Ana it will come in time. hug B

Hi Ana! You've selected a wonderful word - it has been also in the bottom of my mind when thinking about the coming year ... to gain, sustain and share hope! Such a lovely bracelet! I hope you'll PR-work bears fruit and that it will boost your business!
Lots of love, Nina

hi ana! Hope is a great word for the year! I know what you mean, it's hard to have products and nobody purchasing, keep your head up and hopefully with time something will work out for you!

What an inspiring word you chose that can be applied to so many aspects of your life. Well done :)

I think our word for the year is "retirement" and how it's going to be adjusting to it. I'm hoping it's going to be a good thing.

Hope is a great word for the year and that bracelet will really make you smile when you look at it.

Your work is wonderful Ana so don't give up. Hmmm, would you mind if I pinned some of your work on Pinterest? At least it will get other eyes seeing it.

Gosh, i wish I had some good advice to give you, Ana. I have had an Etsy shop for over a year, but haven't been brave enough to put anything up for sale. At least you are trying. Don't give up. Keep working and believing in yourself. It will happen. I love your word and think it's perfect for you. Hugs!

HOPE sounds like a wonderful plan! Life is like fishing, keep throwing the hook back in and you might catch something. Who knows, maybe knitting will open a door for you? Please keep up your blog. I so enJOY your photography. Send some of your sleep my way. I could use it.
