Answer the following question:
- How would you like to improve yourself in 2011? Or, what are some personal goals in the upcoming year? The question is meant to be open ended =)
Sorry all, I got swamped with things I needed to take care off. Will announce winner Jan 5, 2010-- during the night!
You may enter up till that time.
For instance, I would personally like to get my first job after graduation (June 2011!), get back into tip-top shape (physically), and kick my senior project's ass. Interpersonally, I'd like to walk away from college with life long friends.
A SURPRISE bracelet from me-- it'll be 7 inches-- if the winner needs a different size, let me know!
Now... I thought it would be fun to do a quick "hit or miss" list of 2010.... regarding HQCD of course!
MISSES: The items that I personally liked, which FAILED, epically. Don't worry, I'm not offended, but it's just interesting to look back on what worked, and what didn't =)
I thought this item would be more popular:
But it's not!
Cluster Cascades... definitely not as popular as I'd hoped-- perhaps because this style is too "common"?
Geez, what a flop:
I personally loved these, but they NEVER SOLD.
Too cutesy, eh?
I thought it was edgy and hot at the same time. :[
Floral Radiances were a hit!
I personally considered stopping this item due to how long it took to make, but... the customer feedback has been great, so I'm keeping it a permanent part of my collection!
Jen's Feather earrings were a big hit!
I did NOT expect these earrings to be so popular- I'm happy because I have more of an idea of what you guys like :)
Loved by many:
poly clay flower studs! Inspired by Sailor Jupitor =)-- this was NOT a surprising hit :)
All right, I was surprised. I didn't think cuff sets would be so popular, but they are! You'll definitely see more of these in 2011.
Earrings beloved by many:
Calla series were a HITTTTT!
^ Not these EXACT ones, but the general idea is the same :)
Things you can expect from HQCD in 2011:
- Improved customer service-- I AM ALWAYS TRYING TO BE BETTER!
More of earrings like this:
- More one-of-a-kind designs-- one copy in the world!
- Pearl necklaces, like:
- More feather earrings :)
- A greater selection of anklets, bracelets, necklaces ... and cuff earrings :)
- BETTER giveaways!
Lastly, HAPPY 2011, everyone! Hold your dear ones close, be appreciative of life, and live it to the fullest. Be open to becoming a better person, grow and prosper. I wish you all good health, tons of happiness and lots of good food in the year to come.
I leave you with one of the first batches of macarons I've attempted in 2010:
