End of The Year Review!

2015 was quite a year!

It was my first full calendar year for being self employed as well as living with Jim. I wouldn't change a thing!

This year I ventured onto Amazon with a findings shop! I wish they would create attractive store fronts for sellers like they do with Amazon Handmade. Anyway I am still thankful for the site helping me grow my business.

When thinking of the highlight of the year I would have to say being asked to take part in an episode of New England Chronicle. If you missed it, it can be viewed here: Keeping it Symbol: Rock On. My part comes in around 2:30 on the time counter. I certainly never wanted to be on television but was really flattered to be asked and I'm so proud that I went through with it! 

I treated myself to a new camera.
But some subjects weren't too happy about that considering this dude's face!
I tried my hand at resin. Very cool! Of course I haven't had time to do more with it.
I experimented with tofu. This chowder, although not pretty, is a favorite of ours now!
Discovered some neat places.
Had some fun custom orders!
Survived an insane winter!
I wonder what this winter has in mind for us!

I hope you all had a fulfilling 2015! Wishing you an amazing 2016!!! 

Happy New Year!

Thank you for stopping by. ~Val
