A new post for a new year!!

Pin It Yes I know we are a week into the new year but I've been ill since Christmas Day with tonsillitus, just about feel human now thankfully!!! 

So now that I'm over the tonsillitus it is time to start thinking about setting targets for the year and plan for how to reach them!! My first plan is to try and list or renew at list one item a day over at my Etsy shop Bramalfie Beads Etc.  I also want to continue to increase my views over there on a month by month basis and try to beat last months sales figures of 5 so for January my target is 6 sales. Here is my 1st listing of the year...

Chainmaille choker necklace red and silver MADE TO ORDER

I have also been thinking about trying to put some kind of structure into my blog posts and attempt to keep on top of the posts, I need to remember that I can schedule posts so they can be done in advance when I am short of time!!!  So I'm thinking that when Craft Britannia start up their shop of the week posts again I will make that Monday's post and link it to Handmade Monday over at Handmade Harbour.  Then it will be Treasury Tuesday where I will create a treasury on Etsy and post on here each Tuesday.  That's as far as I have got so far - am open to other suggestions!!

I have also signed up to a couple of challenges.  The first being the the Year of Jewellery Project which is over on Facebook so I guess I could make that one days post - let's say Saturday as that is the last day of the week for the weekly submissions on the group.  I am behind already and it's only just started!!!  The other is 12 polymer projects 2013 on Flickr so these posts will be monthly and ad-hoc!!
