Ready for the New Year!

I am so ready for the New Year 2013! This year is going to be awesome! I feel it in my bones. As you can tell I have changed the look of my blog. The background is tan and I have made a banner above of me teaching, my jewelry, art and collage from the past year. This is just the beginning. I plan on many more changes for this year.

My Business is changing. I am looking into creating a wonderful space in The Cozy Craft Corner for Artists. A community of Artists with similar goals. It will be a membership shop. Where you join and have many perks to the membership. Perks are; your own space in the shop to sell your goods, one class teaching a month, you get to be part of an amazing group of Artists, have a community of creativity, get to work in the shop! You get your art out there and join in a creative community. I am still working on this and fine tuning it. So keep an eye out for more details in January 2013.

I took Kelly Rae's business class and have learned so much, met many new friends and felt a movement in energy towards future goals. I learned that I love mixed media art and have been doing it I just didn't know what it was called. I have started a mixed media group on meetup. To learn more about it, and meet other artists. I couldn't find anything in Sacramento about mixed media. So I am creating it! This already has so much interest I am excited to see how it turns out. I have various mixed media classesat the shop already Artist Trading Cards, Journals, Collage and this month we are going to do a collage for what we want in this coming year, like a treasure map or vision board. It has many names but all the same effects. You gather pictures from magazines and create your future. If you visualize what you want it will come. manifestation is a powerful tool! This is one of the ways my shop came about.

Here is my piece I worked on in the meetup!

I also have my jewelry classes on meetup under wire wrap jewlery. The jewelry classes are earrings, bracelets, pendants and rings.
I might throw in a few beaded bracelets and necklaces. I know I have had many comments on this necklace that is beaded and woven in a graduated color scheme.

Personally I am so happy to be able to do what I love! Create Art! I love making ATCs and have a great group to trade with. I am creating more inspirational card decks, these are so fun! I am dabbling in mixed media art. I am making an art journal. I am signed up for a book group where we read The Artists Way and take a month to do each chapter. I am hoping to take Life Book

 I have not signed up yet, I will soon. I am teaching Dharma again, Prayers for World Peace and a Mala class. I am creating more jewelry and growing a business. How fun! I am really looking forward to this year and what it has to offer me and all those around me. I hope to do everything with ease, patience and love.

Happy New Year!



  1. 2013 is going to be such an incredible year for all of us. I can feel it! I wish we lived in the same town, I would love nothing more than to take part at The Cozy Craft Corner. Fabulous, fabulous idea! Your blog makeover is awesome. I like the new look. Happy New Year, Chandra!

  2. Wow, you are really moving forward with creating your future! Good for you, Chandra. Like several Flyers, I have signed up for the Life Book 2013 course. I can't wait to get back in touch with my visual artist side, instead of just dabbling with words. Sending blessing for much success your way!

  3. Happy New Year to you, sweet Chandra!!!! :) You have lots to look forward to!
