So just when business things are rolling right along things start breaking. We replaced the motherboard on my computer back in December and everything was fine until two days ago when I tried to upload some pictures from my camera and my USB ports didn't work. That's portS as in all three of them! I think I may have to send my new motherboard back now which means being without a computer for a few weeks again. And if that weren't bad enough my car starts stalling when I stop! I'm so annoyed...I just want to concentrate on my glass!

I did have a good night last night. I went down to Glasscraft for the monthly BeadCluster meeting which I am not normally able to attend due to work. I got a few new glass colors to play with and visited with my wonderful bead friends.

Now I'm just waiting for my new oxy tank to get here so I can start to play!

Back to Business

Part of my New Year's "Resolutions" (really more of a list of goals and plans) is to be more active with my business. So far I've been working really hard to get some finished pieces into a boutique in downtown Fort Collins. I've got several pieces finished and now I'm working on pricing. I have an idea of what I would like to get for my work but when I add the boutique's percentage on top of that it seems to bump it up to a range I'm not necessarily comfortable with. Maybe I'll just choose to split the difference. Anyway, once these are taken to the store then it will be time to stock my Etsy store. I think I'm off to a decent start on my goals for the year.
