Thoughtful Thursday 1/10/13

Today I am supposed to be thoughtful, and I guess I am, just if a different way. I have been reflective a lot over the last few weeks – as most of us do at the end of a New Year.  Now, my thoughts are more towards the future.  I have so many new designs in my head (my fingers just don’t move that fast) and new ideas of where I want Krafty Max Originals to go over the next few years that it is hard to even tell you everything. 
With a business plan and projection down on paper and a set of goals posted in my business book it is easy to see where I am headed.  Getting there will take the help of ALL of you.  I am always so thankful for all the support I get from my friends, family, followers and fans.  It is amazing to me how much of an impact people who I have never met (in person) can impact my life so much.
So, with all this in mind I would like to say that this year will be a ‘wild ride’, I hope you are here for it!!
Here is the finished necklace that you watched grow, what do you think??


And now, for a new project!!  Here are the TWO COLORS that will make up my next bracelet…. any guesses?? Remember you can keep watching my Fan Page or Google+ page throughout the day to watch this one grow and develop.

I have started a new contest…. another GREAT book for beaders!!  Here is the book, click on the photo to enter!!  Have fun!!
Today’s featured artist is: SockMonkeyCity.  I have been very lucky to get to know this great artist over the recent weeks.  She was an avid beader for some time, however, she has decided to sell her beads and focus on her amazing SOCK MONKEYS.  Guess what I got??  YEP, her beads!!  I have to say, when I opened the box I was so happy!!!  I have SO many beads that I do NOT need anymore, however, as all of you know you really can’t EVER have enough!!  So, here is what I received from her….
…..just a few beads to add to my stash… just a few!!
And now, you just have to see what she does with her socks…..I have to say that it was hard to pick a favorite from her ‘cuties’, but I think this one is the best!
Today I would like to leave you with this thought; 

Spend your time and energy creating, not criticizing.
