I still love blogging, but unfortunately (and shame on me), I couldn't find time to blog as devotedly as I should be. And look at the date! One year apart. And it's always at the end of the year that I will review back what I have done and what I should have do more/better. And here I am, trying to pick up my blogging habit again, every time of the year. Yes, really shame of me, I couldn't prolong this practice for very long. But I never gave up. So I will try again....
2012 has been a very messy, hectic, and yet the most fruitful year for me. My craft business has run for 1.5 years and I can see that it is growing into something. The first half of the year, I was running around craft markets and fashion bazaars. I worked 7 days a week, 16 hours a day (8 hours for sleeping) all on my own. Pushing trolley and setting up my booth at weekend markets has been a routine and at times, it has became horrifying tiring and very heavy hearted to wake up on the bazaar day morning. The so-called creative business has become somewhat monotonous. It was after June that I slowed down on the market movement because I moved to a bigger shop and the audience that I generated from going around marketplace and craft fair started to drop by at my brick and mortar shop.
And at this bigger space, I was able to invite teachers to held craft workshops. Response was overwhelming. Thanks to the experienced teachers (Florence and Kak Syam) who has been extremely supportive. They are very nice lady and easy to work with. I am very happy to have met great people like them, whom inspired and helped me in some way or another.
And I am listening to Christmas songs already (Michael Buble always), while making a pledge, to continue blogging as religiously as I could.
