Well as a general resolution I've decided to lose weight Grin Over 1 stone lost already, woohoo! Grin

Although my glassy resolution isn't as straightforward as NO CHOCOLATE DEAN, NO! - I'm after a kiln Tongue But before that I really, really want to upgrade my torch- ANYTHING faster than a hothead Tongue They say you don't miss what you've never had but I learnt on a dual-fuel torch Tongue So that's the main resolution; a faster torch Grin

ALSO I'd love to make a really good goddess bead and some stripy beads Grin

The advantage of the kitchen is not having to trudge outside when it's cold, wet, snowy, dark, yukky, blowing a gale, and tackle all those spiders that decided that the best place to put their webs is straight across the path! I'm staying in the kitchen.

Biggest job on my To Do list: work out what the heck I'm going to demo at Flame Off Shocked

Most exciting job: order skip and get started on my new studio  Grin

So how's everybody doing with their New Year Resolutions?

I hate to be smug, but .. cough ... both of mine are ticked off, in the bag and sewn up tight  Grin Grin Grin

It's great to see how everyone is doing with their resolutions. I had a look back at mine.
Hmm well still up to my ears in bills but getting through them a bit at a time.
Have made some beads I am really pleased with. Even entered some in the GBUK competition.
OH is working on the website kinda. Obviously needs more hussling.
DD has been taking photos for me so hussling worked.
Fraid nowhere closer to my bobcat and oxycon due to first resolution/goal not being sorted yet!

Great looking back! Weeeell, bills/debts  are sorted into manageable payments and I am paying them up.
Came second in GBUK comp and have made some sales with my beads
website with etsy page done
managing my own photos and posting and listing
Got my bobcat and oxycon (thanks to a very special forum lady)
I dont believe it I've done it....happy dance around the room!  Grin

Louise, you've  quit smoking since January , that's brilliant!  Smiley

I need to list more of the stuff I make on my artfire and website. this means doing the dreaded pricing thing. I cant get my head around it when its loose beads, jewellery I'm fine with though.
well, I've started doing it, I've priced some types of items, which means I just need to make more and list them, and I have an etsy shop now too, and it has a couple of things in at the moment, however, I have spent most of the last two months making stock for my galleries, so have not got much stock for myself! but, I did manage to photgraph all of it, with nice enough pics to put online, and most of them are online

making wise, I'm having great fun making focals, but I really need to sit down and make smaller matched sets of beads for bracelets and earrings. sets are not my strong point, I'm too much of a butterfly and like to try out different things all the time, I have to force myself to even make two of something. getting much better at this too, my last two kiln batches have been nothing but pairs! well, a few odds that didnt quite make it, sets also happen occasionlly, this is mainly due to the fact I now have rather a large collection addiction of/to presses and rollers  Roll Eyes

also, I'm getting a new studio, and I would like to try and keep it tidy and organised..chances of this are slim!um, well, didnt I say I've been busy making loads...er, that comes with side effects of mess I'm afraid! I'll call it lived in I think...

generally be more organised, and keep the motivation going from 'ooh I'll make some of those', right through to, 'I'll take a picture and edit it and list it' rather than leaving them in a pile that gets huge and scary and I don't know where to start!getting better, need to get back on it now that the gallery stuff is done, but I do have the photos of those things, so at least have a sort of catalog of past work that people can look at

so, er, well I've done ok, but got new ones to add...starting with curbing my press habit!
