This weeks question is:
How was your 2010?

Mine was great!  Personally and professionally it was fantastic and I definitely can not complain.  I am definitely looking forward to a wonderful 2011.

Here is just a portion of the custom orders I created this holiday season.  Some are one of a kind, some were added to my shop this year after creating them and some will be definitely added next year.  (I do create ornaments all year round, so if there is something you would like for next Christmas please keep that in mind.)
A BIG thank you to all of my customers this year!  I am very grateful for all of you.

A few stats as of today:

I have had 605 sales in my etsy shop.
367 of those sales on etsy were from 2010!
My etsy shop has 1212 "Hearts".
My blog has 923 Blog Followers and 986 google reader subscribers and 123 e-mail subscribers.
There are 1077 Fans of Whimsical Creations on Facebook

Those numbers are just mind blowing to me.

Here's looking forward to a Fantastic 2011!  Have a safe New Year!!

Very difficult honestly....in may my marriage almost fell completely apart...then in June my step dad passed away, I began counseling and was diagnosed with depression, in Dec. I lost my grandfather and then a very special mentor in my life in just a few short days of each other...

I can't wait for 11, it's gotta be better

2010 was a mixed year. As a blogger it opened up amazing opportunities, including writing for a local magazine and going to two conferences. As a mother, it has been a challenge. Not being able to be in control of everything is tough, especially when it comes to my son at school. Knowing too much as an educator does not help this either.
