Snowflakes and "winter" news

snowflake christmas tree ornament by beth cyr

Every year I want to start earlier in getting the snowflake ornaments done - it's not quite as early as I'd like but it's at least before Thanksgiving! It is kind of hard to think about snowflakes when it is so warm out and Christmas seems so far away. Alex has been working really hard on these while I'm catching up on custom orders. We have 4 dozen listed so far. 

News for the next couple of months:

Deadline for custom work needed by Christmas/New Years is November 18th.

The OCAF holiday market is happening in Watkinsville Dec. 2 - 4th. I will have work in a booth with other Athens Metal Arts Guild Members (snowflakes included). 

I'll be having an Open Studio on Saturday Dec. 10th from 10 - 5pm. ATHICA will also be having their holiday market and several other artists in the Chase Park Warehouses will also be having open studios as well including David Hale and Erin McIntosh

December 15th begins the 2nd half of the yoga teacher training I'm staffing and I'll most likely be out of the studio from the 15th until the end of the year. 

And the end of the year will be here before we know it!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life

Posted by Beth Cyr on

When I was growing up my stepdad had a lot of little phrases he liked to use. He often would say them in a joking manner with a little chuckle. As a kid, it just kind of seemed like a funny thing to say, "Today is the first day of the rest of your life."

Even though it's a cliche, that same sentence has real meaning, especially now as an adult and a yogi. Every day can be treated as a new beginning, with a sense of curiosity and wonder, but some days really are bigger and brighter than others. Today starts a new chapter in my business and my life since the two are so interconnected.

At 1:00 am this morning, Alex changed the domain over to the new site as we finished up the last few touch ups. Within a few minutes, BethCyr.com became a brand new website. I've realized over the past few years that websites are never really finished.  There is still a lot more work to be done - new products to be added and some behind the scenes pages to be created. But we set a date and everything on our list has been checked off, so it is time to release it to the world.

Within the next week we'll have the wholesale catalog and ordering form completely done - the general public can't see it, but it's there! I'll have a convenient way for retailers to purchase my work - both made to order and one of a kind work that always seemed to mentally prohibit me from doing wholesale. It is a big step to be creating another focus for my business.

It's time to release the anxieties of the past and welcome the changes of this new path.

A huge thank you to everyone that read over content and tested links and gave feedback - I am so grateful.

We hope you all enjoy the new site!
