I have finished the set up of my new Gallery Store, and put up several pieces and will continue to do so bit by bit. This week I added the most popular pieces on my old store, and a few new pieces, I will continue to add the links so you’ll need to keep checking to find all the new things going up. I’ll try to give heads up here. Take a look http://store.deborahchapin.com
“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
~ Chief Tecumseh
Let it snow, let is snow, let it snow…if you haven’t noticed my blog is snowing… puts me in the seasonal cheery mood…. So well it has been awhile since I checked in, been working on so many projects looks like a whirl wind went through, but I am making progress, bought a Neat Desk to organize all that paper stuff that we still need especially when we don’t know what the tax situation will be… I love it (Neat Desk not taxes). Updated the software for the book portfolio I’m working on boy what a nightmare… I love what these programs can do but I really hate being a beta tester throughout my whole adult existence…. and then there are the passwords, and the nightmare of getting anyone (human) to work out a problem.. sigh, but that hurdle is just about resolved. Revamping my store, it needed repainting, probably done this week that will set up the 2013… which brings me to new year’s resolutions…There were a lot of hurdles in sales this year starting in reverse order, distractions like fiscal cliffs, elections, preparing for a hurricanes, 2 weeks without electricity from that freak storm (online business here) in the summer, and then there were Google’s Pelican, Penguin updates that pretty much bottomed out the marketplace for every small business known to man (or woman) for two months in March/April. Whew, still provided sanity returns to those on the hill this year we’ll be OK, didn’t meet my goals of 30% increase in sales but … I’m feeling it was quite an accomplishment just making it through 2012. It’s all relative, my mom feels it is quite an accomplishment just getting out of bed these days.
So… what to do over in 2013 for the resolutions…. there’s still time to round-up 2012 but I’m looking forward to positive things and less rancor and disharmony… A little more OMM. So a quiet snowy evening to start…. Enjoy the snow.
