Seasonal Snapshot

Here's my upcoming year in a really abbreviated overview. 

1)  Do all that business stuff that makes a business run.  Website design, taxes, sign up for craft shows.  Glam jobs.
2)  Draw up house, shop and new farm plans.  YES!
3)  Re-socialize myself with all those good friends and family I have less time for the rest of the year
1)  Move perennial plants to new farm.
2)  Make so many poplar bark baskets.  So, so, so many.
3)  Work on packaging for upcoming season.

1)  Deconstruct and then rebuild hoophouses and fencing on new farm,
2)  Grow things and make baskets until the bark won't slip anymore.
3)  Dry, process, and package teas and spices.

1)  Craft shows!
2)  Farmers Market & Holiday Market!
3)  Keep processing and packaging teas and spices.
4)  Distribute all the lovely things I've made all year to all the lovely people at markets and craft shows who want to take my wares home or give them as gifts.  This is the piece that makes the whole thing tick.
