This year also meant a lot of progress in my creative life. I bought a Gocco and learned how to use it. A course in letterpress and bookbinding at Albertine Press kept my creative juices flowing. It's been exciting to open my new Etsy shop under my new business name, and its been doubly exciting to be part of Boston Handmade, featured on blogs, and part of online portfolios like Trunkt and Poppytalk Handmade.
2008 promises to be just as good. I have two major business goals for the New Year:
- Incorporate more recycled and repurposed materials into my work.
- Develop a broader line for my Etsy shop, including stickers, bookplates, and journals.
