2014 Goals


My Business Goals for 2014

Make at least 50 items for my etsy shop

I have 25 right now.
Once I make the 50,  try to keep it stocked with 50 at all times

I have a feeling this will be the hardest to accomplish

Double my sales of the previous year

My sales for 2013 on etsy were 140, so I need to do 280 by next Dec.

Reach 500 Facebook Fans

The number of fans I have right now is 372



  1. So lovely! :)
    Greetings from Finland!
    Hugs, Ulla

    1. Thank you so much! I'm so glad you dropped by!!

  2. This is a good plan. I think I will adjust the numbers for myself. Thanks

    1. NancyL, thank you for stopping by. I think looking at the numbers honestly will clarify how I'm doing in my "business." I will also be tracking my non-etsy sales which I never really did properly before.

  3. For whatever reason, this post came in today (Jan. 5, 2015) and I'm wondering how your goals fared? Did you meet them?

    1. How are people contacting yout about custom quilts? Are you enjoying making them for others?

    2. I did and some I exceeded. I had a good year. I will be writing a folow up to this post to write in specifics.

      People usually contact me through my etsy shop and also through my facebook page

      I do enjoy making custom quilts. Some of the best quilts I've done have been custom requested such as the Texas Star quilt, the Methodist Cross quilt and the chevron quilt I made with a grandmother's housecoats. Sometimes though I'd like to make some spec quilts of my own design and I haven't had much chance to do that lately.
