What's Been Going On and December Goals

Posted on December 01, 2014 by Sarah Brown | 2 Comments

Well, to say a lot has been going on around here would be an understatement. November really kicked off the start of Glowing Local – a dream in the works for over a year. Here’s an overview of the big things that happened in November:

• Launched Glowing Local! 
• Shipped out our first Praying for Your Husband journals
• Read quite a few good books
• Set up an Etsy store
• Took my 93 year old grandma to the Clemson/Carolina game
• Had the horror of having to “craft” for a preschool Thanksgiving party
• Used this recipe to make meals for 7 different friends who had babies this past month
• Loved listening to this Jamie Ivey podcast after getting involved with the new orphan care ministry at church
• Made this free holiday printable to stay praying this month
• Sucked into this and loving it
• Also enjoyed this podcast with Crystal Stine, especially her sentiment that online community revolves around the idea of “what can I do to bless someone” not “what can they do for me.”

      For December, I’m hoping to:

      • Ship lots more journals in time for Christmas
      • Figure out a store newsletter
      • Design a new product!
      • Make a few book lists, including favorite reads in 2014
      • Can’t wait for Lesson and Carols (if you’re local, come!)
      • Attend the Indie Craft Parade Holiday Fair (bet you want to be on my Christmas giving list)
      • Have baby showers for 4 different babies. Really enjoyed these funny baby shower gift ideas

          What do you have planned this month?

          Wow… you DID have a busy month! Product and dreams coming true… what’s not to love about that? I fear you may be pushing me over the edge to falling into the world of Podcasts! I listen to a few sporadically – but the ones you mentioned here all sound so great! I’m not sure if I should thank you or not! ;) Stopping by from Emily’s What We Learned link up!
