Unless I loose my mind (further) here shortly and go over to equilter.com, then I have made it through the year regarding fabric - okay, Dave did buy some fabric for me but it was for unplanned special projects and since I didn't buy it, then I'm choosing to sort of ignore it - because I had more than ample opportunity to stock up all year long (I'm talking major sales here, people), I'm looking at the bigger picture and giving myself credit for the restraint.
My Etsy shop was opened in the Fall and I have already had one sale (to a complete stranger, not even family or anything, who left me a wonderful review) - and, since I've done no further marketing other than what Etsy itself provides, then I'm marking that resolution done as well.
Not bad: 1.99 out of 2
I have plenty to finish up in 2016, some for the shop and some for charity, so I should be busy enough without much shopping (I think grey thread is in my future...), so maybe my resolution for 2016 will be "Restrained Shopping" rather than an all-out boycott.
As for New Year's Eve, this year we are keeping it nice and quiet and making a wish that 2016 is an undramatic year that brings joy and blessings to all we know and love.
