New Year, New Beginnings

The start of a new year motivates many people to make resolutions and try to improve their health, finances, relationships, and life in general.  For me, I'd like to concentrate more on my business: add new items, try different techniques, and spread my creative wings a bit.  This actually comes quite naturally to me- I really enjoy trying new things and testing my creative boundaries.  I also want to delve deeper into videos and learn more about creating them.  Eventually I want to try my hand at some "how to" videos and post them on YouTube. 
Tutorials are always a great way to learn new things, and can be the beginning of all sorts of wonderful projects.  2 Good Claymates on Artfire loves to share their knowledge and help artists learn new skills.  This tutorial on making beautiful buttons is a great way to start!Making Beautiful Buttons Tutorial 
Starting the new year off with a positive attitude is definitely the way to go!  This pendant from Bewitching Dreams is a simple reminder to wish, love, and hope.  After all, what is life without our hopes and dreams?  And love can get you through some of the toughest times.  Wear this pendant and never forget the importance of these words!

Everyone begins the new year in their own way- try to make it a positive start!  I hope everyone has a wonderful year ahead of them filled with creativity, love, and happiness. :)
