New Year, New... everything!
Change is a natural part of what is hopefully progress, though the changes I've implemented may seem a little.... backwards. I am un-doing many of the things, especially in my business, that have been a staple over the last few years, and I'm here to talk about what those changes are, and why I've made them (as best as I'm able, at any rate). These changes have been announced here and there, on social media, in my newsletter, but for those who may have missed it, here's the scoop!
First off, some may have noticed that January marked the first month, in many many years, that I haven't had a Tuesday Tutorial Treasure Hunt. That's right, the trusty Tuesday hunts are a thing no more. Now, that doesn't mean there wont be hunts, they just wont necessarily by on a Tuesday, nor necessarily for a tutorial. Occasionally, I may have a crazy good 70% off coupon code available in limited quantities as part of the hunt. Sometimes there may be a hunt for the checkout page for a free piece of jewelry. They may not be every month, they may be twice a month. And there may still be tutorials in the hunts as well. There just wont be quite the adherence to schedules as was previously the case. (Note: Those who purchased the membership last August and September will still get an intermediate design as if it were a Treasure Hunt tutorial).
Next, I've made some changes to my packaging, which I'll have a separate post on soon. My packaging has, for a while, been 100% recyclable, as eco-friendly practices have become much more important to me, personally and professionally. There are no tins, no drawstring bags, no jewelry boxes with those poly-cotton inserts. Just paper products with recyclable labels for boxes and shipping.
dSo, when I say lessons are retired, or only available for a limited time, it's forever. Once gone, they are gone, with no opportunity to snag them moving forward. This also helps me run my website more efficiently, as over 500 lessons and images can become a frightening mammoth to sort through on a bi-yearly basis when retired lessons made a brief appearance. So, the many many lessons (over 300) currently listed in the Retired Lessons shop section will be available through the end of February and then permanently deleted from my storefront and from the admin side of things as well. EDIT: COUPON NO LONGER ACTIVE, AS THESE LESSONS HAVE NOW BEEN PERMANENTLY RETIRED.
The 2021 membership may also mark the last membership moving forward, though I still have time to contemplate this decision. Eeek! I know! But there are still new things coming, such as the various treasure hunts mentioned above, a 5000k Members Facebook Group 12 Hour Giveaway (you can join my group here), most likely happening sometime between late April or late June, new YouTube videos and more mystery box options! And who knows what else this brain of mine might cook up, so stay tuned!
I recognize the last two years have been.... an adjustment, for most of us. But I just want to say that I appreciate all the support shown to me these many years. I've fostered many fantastic friendships, full of inspiration and creativity, and hope to be around to foster many more. So, on that note, I'll see you in the next blog post... of which there will be many!

Well at least I won't be tempted by more retired lessons.

A rolling stone gathers no moss! Hope you remain... moss free! So many changes going on in the last couple of years, and still. I've just been laid off from my job (first time I've told anyone, other than my husband, not even my family!) But, I'm looking forward to what the future brings.

I love that you keep growing. Change is a necessary bi-product and an exciting way to add depth to your work.
