We’re more than halfway through January, and well into 2015. The holidays are now just a warm glow of memory, and it’s time to take on the new year.
Roxy is a near-perpetual traveller these days due to work. She is in Ottawa for a short time, and we got to have a business lunch on Sunday, catching up and doing a little planning. Fuelled by sushi and dim sum, we came up with some ideas, including some brainstorming on a new product line to come out this year. All I can say for now is that it’s going to be fabulous.
I’ve also been mulling over some goals for Drakestail this year and doing a little organizing. Not as exciting as product design but just as important.
Looking back, 2014 was a great year for us. I kept busy in the early months with the 100 Day Challenge. It was a huge undertaking but I’m very proud of the work I produced. The Exchange Uporium was a fantastic opportunity in Winnipeg’s trendy Exchange district, a gorgeous mix of handmade and vintage sellers. I participated in 5 different craft fairs, two new and three old favourites. The year wrapped up at the Boutique Pop Up Aylmer, a cozy temporary shop full of local handmade goods.
I’m looking forward to everything 2015 brings, and to having you, dear reader, with us for the journey!
