Normal is boring

New Year, New… everything! – Nicole Hanna Jewelry



​Somehow, somewhere together the line, 2022 occurred. Previous calendar year seemed to concurrently fly by and drag on, and I am even now wrapping my head about a new calendar year… and the adjustments that inevitably delivers. I am a creature of practice, immediately after all, and have always behaved in a way that invites transform at the new 12 months, possibly in hopes of wiping the slate clear, so to talk, re-igniting a creative spark or rebuilding relationships and balanced practices. I wouldn’t dare contact them resolutions, which is (to me, at minimum) an inept and cliche descriptor for what is turn out to be a healing ritual for me. 

​Change is a organic aspect of what is hopefully progress, nevertheless the adjustments I’ve implemented may well feel a very little…. backwards. I am un-executing many of the factors, specially in my business, that have been a staple about the very last number of many years, and I am right here to speak about what all those improvements are, and why I have manufactured them (as most effective as I’m in a position, at any charge). These modifications have been declared right here and there, on social media, in my e-newsletter, but for those who may possibly have missed it, here’s the scoop!

1st off, some could have noticed that January marked the initially month, in many numerous many years, that I have not had a Tuesday Tutorial Treasure Hunt. That’s right, the trusty Tuesday hunts are a thing no far more. Now, that won’t indicate there wont be hunts, they just wont always by on a Tuesday, nor automatically for a tutorial. Occasionally, I may well have a insane excellent 70% off coupon code available in confined quantities as aspect of the hunt. Occasionally there may possibly be a hunt for the checkout web page for a totally free piece of jewelry. They may perhaps not be every thirty day period, they could be 2 times a month. And there could even now be tutorials in the hunts as perfectly. There just wont be quite the adherence to schedules as was earlier the circumstance. (Notice: All those who acquired the membership very last August and September will however get an intermediate style and design as if it were being a Treasure Hunt tutorial). 

Next, I’ve produced some modifications to my packaging, which I am going to have a separate publish on shortly. My packaging has, for a whilst, been 100% recyclable, as eco-welcoming practices have develop into considerably more critical to me, individually and skillfully. There are no tins, no drawstring baggage, no jewellery packing containers with these poly-cotton inserts. Just paper goods with recyclable labels for containers and delivery. 

Also, there is at present a sale on all Retried Classes, which you can examine out in this article. Shifting ahead, these classes will not be returning, as they commonly would, in the drop months. Confined Version tutorials will also be gone endlessly when their first availability has lapsed. I am making new patterns on a month-to-month, at times weekly foundation, and the concepts never appear to be to be stopping any time soon. As this sort of, I want to make confident there is not a visible overwhelm on my web page of possibilities, and purpose to keep the patterns as related and contemporary to my aesthetic as attainable. 
dSo, when I say lessons are retired, or only offered for a constrained time, it’s permanently. After long gone, they are long gone, with no prospect to snag them moving ahead. This also allows me operate my website much more efficiently, as more than 500 classes and pictures can develop into a scary mammoth to type as a result of on a bi-yearly basis when retired lessons made a transient appearance. So, the quite a few several classes (more than 300) at this time shown in the Retired Classes shop portion will be out there by means of the end of February and then completely deleted from my storefront and from the admin side of things as nicely. EDIT: COUPON NO For a longer time Lively, AS THESE Classes HAVE NOW BEEN Completely RETIRED.

The 2021 membership may perhaps also mark the final membership moving ahead, however I nonetheless have time to contemplate this final decision. Eeek! I know! But there are still new points coming, this sort of as the many treasure hunts talked about higher than, a 5000k Members Fb Group 12 Hour Giveaway (you can sign up for my group below), most probably happening someday amongst late April or late June, new YouTube video clips and more mystery box solutions! And who knows what else this brain of mine could possibly cook dinner up, so remain tuned!

I understand the very last two a long time have been…. an adjustment, for most of us. But I just want to say that I value all the guidance proven to me these lots of a long time. I have fostered several great friendships, complete of inspiration and creativity, and hope to be about to foster quite a few more. So, on that notice, I am going to see you in the next site publish… of which there will be several!

Pleased weaving,
