Well, this time, I'm gearing up for it several weeks in advance. I hope to have 7 or 8 new items ready to go by the first of the month, and then start listing, one, maybe two a day. It's going pretty well so far, I've completed two items, and almost have a third one finished. I also have a small pile of items, maybe 4, that need finishing touches, a scarf that needs felting, one that needs buttons sewn on, etc. I'm hoping to do all of that really quickly over the next few days, so I can be ready to go!
I'm really trying to hammer into a regular blogging routine, but I haven't gotten there quite yet. April's really going to help with that, as it's Autism Awareness Month, and since autism is something close and personal to my life, I'm going to be blogging about it a lot during April. The Owls are making items up to put in our team shop with all the profits going to Autism Speaks, and I'm really excited to be taking part in that coming up starting in about a week or so. I also belong to Etsy for Autism and I have a lot of plans to blog about various shops in this team during April too. So, hopefully this will help me get more into blogging! Stay tuned!

I got here because of Beladonna who makes the most precious little kokeshi dolls. Takara (pictured above top left) is made by her and is my absolute favorite. She's having this awesome giveaway where you can win one of her kokeshi dolls for free on her blog and it's so easy to enter, you have to go do it! I'm so inspired by the absolute cuteness of these dolls that I'm attempting to crochet them. :) It's going to be exciting, for real!
Here's links to all the shops featured:

We decided to combine shops because we both have had study abroad experiences and thought our photos from these experiences would fit well together. In addition to photography, we also have photo magnets, postcards, notecards, and pendants.
In an effort to have Etsy get to know us, we're having a giveaway in March for a free 5x7 photo! To enter, all you have to do is visit our shop at DreamBirdPhotos, pick your favorite photo in the shop, come back to this post, post a link to the photo and tell us why you like it!
If you are an Etsy member, please post a link to your Etsy shop in the post as well. If you're not an Etsy member, please post an email address where you can be contacted in case you are drawn to be winner.
The contest will end at 12:01 am Eastern time Monday the 23rd and winners will be notified by Tuesday the 24th. One photo will be given away for every 25 people who enter the contest. (i.e. if 100 people enter, we will give away 4 5x7 photos!)

- For March, get my 'corner' organized (think craft room/writing & reading cubby), but condensed, because my apt is itty bitty) This was a failed February goal and I will see it carried out in March.
- Upon completion of goal # 1, use the above space to start writing more!
- learn Microsoft Excel, not just the basics, but really learn it. This is a resume booster and everyone should know it inside and out.
- attempt to learn to knit again. I tried this once over a period of time but failed and eventually gave up. My hands are confused by two needles :)
What are your goals? How are those New Years Resolutions going?
