Early New Year's Resolutions for Bear Chick

It's not even Thanksgiving and I'm already thinking about next year. Here are some goals and things I want to put in place for my business.

Redesign my craft fair set up, complete with Bear Chick banner

New car magnets--the old ones don't mention Etsy

Apply to juried, handmade only shows. No more competing with Cookie Lee and crap made in China

Maintain a marketing calendar, for social networking and other promotional activities

Join a real, live networking group, preferably a chamber of commerce or a women's group, with ties to the community

Learn more about chain making

Get into metal stamping so I can make my own custom charms

Take command of my toaster oven so I can make polymer clay creations that aren't undercooked (floppy) or overcooked (blackened)

Just 'cause I like a blog with at least one picture, here's a sweet little vintage gold tone and garnet pin, currently for sale on Etsy.

Great goals to have for the new year! You've inspired me to think up some of my own.
