2011 is a new start to a new life if you are consistent. Change doesn’t happen just because you have a desire to change; it has to be followed up with action one foot in front of the other. As I look back on last year and what I have accomplished I know it didn’t happen without a lot of work and perseverance which has great rewards in the end.
I have made great strides in achieving some long awaited dreams. I finally have my own studio where I can now do my silversmith work and conduct workshops. I also finished several years of jewelry courses at Harrisburg Area Community College. I have also worked for a long time towards achieving state jury status from the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen, which is a life time award for a body of work by an artist in their field of art. I am very proud of this award and to be recognized for years of hard work.
I am looking forward to what this New Year has to offer me and the growth that it will bring. I hope you will join me in a prosperous new year and knocking some new things off your bucket list.
Happy New Year.
