two thousand and thirteen water snakes

Hello loves! Four hours have passed since 2013 began. Thank you to everyone who have been a part of my 2012, may it be bitter or simply sweet.. it doesn't matter in the end. It has been a tough year for me, burning myself out with work to distract myself from utter loneliness since my mom's passing. I worked 'til death that I finally raised my hands for losing too much energy at the latter part of the year. I have been productive, yes, but I drew inspiration from the sadness. I suffered a lot but I didn't realize that early.

Anyway, I had a good break from everything last month. I think I feel better now. I organized a pattern for the activities I'm supposed to do for the rest of the year. Last year, I just said yes to everything which was certainly draining. I'll also be training a couple of assistants to help me with my label, Dorotee Sweetlips, since I will spend more time at school this year. I am hoping it would be a great help keeping everything alive. I should learn to be a good teacher now.. I was always a bad teacher haha!

Also, some Dorotee Sweetlips update. I decided to permanently close commissions/made to order services. I'm doing so for the benefit of the label.. sort of a consistency with the image and trademark of the Dorotee Sweetlips feel.

I'm excited for 2013! Happy New Year everyone!
