2015 has been the year of change for out little family. Craig's brother passed away on Easter Sunday due to a terrible accident shortly after we said goodbye to his Grandfather. Craig also decided to start working for himself after the company he worked for closed in August. Through it all he has been our rock. I truly believe it's because our faith that God will get us through anything that life throws at us.
It's been a great year, too. Both Dash & Sassy had a terrific 2015. Lacrosse, dance, swim and soccer reigned supreme for fun and both are having awesome school years. They are goofy, challenging, loving, active, and headstrong kiddos and make us laugh every day.
As for this little machine Ely's Easel, I know how lucky I am. Every year has had growth and the fact that I get to do what I love is not forgotten. I do need to find a better balance between home and work in 2016 and that will be a challenge because my work is (mostly) at home! It has been the year of the corn hole for sure and it all started with the "Hi, can you make this for me?" from a client. From there it steamrolled and not only are we hooked on the game but we also have friends & family hooked, too. It has also been the year of the destination signs, also begun with a question on a Facebook yard sale page. Thanks to friends and past clients I was hired to create & MacGyver install a backyard destination sign. We loved it so much that we ended up making one for our home, too. Christmas brought three orders for clients and our signs will be featured in The Home Show in Oaks, PA Jan 15-17, 2016! Sparkly balls ruled the order list too and it was the first year that I did not need to do post after post to advertise. I am amazed at the creativity that my clients come up with in themes for their ornaments.
So, thanks again for tuning in and spreading the word. You all are appreciated more than you can possibly know. Here are some of the highlights from the year!
