Happy New Year, friends! We are so excited for what’s in store for you and Handmade Loves in 2016!

One of our favorite additions in 2015 has been our guest bloggers, so what better way to kick off the new year than with an amazingly uplifting submission by Laura Jane

Stay inspired, keep growing, and stop doubting! 

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016
New year, new start, new goals!
Whether you’re an Entrepreneur, Business owner, YouTube Vlogger or just a DIY fanatic, it’s time to plan ahead…
Believe it or not, 2016 won’t just awesome itself. It’s gonna need a lot of patience and your willingness to succeed.
I don’t know what your 2015 looked like, but mine consisted of an Etsy shop anniversary, my 21st birthday and an album launch! Awesome to say the least! Yet now, my 2016 has the potential to be even better, as does yours.
What are your 2016 goals?
(Share in the comments, we’d love to hear and be inspired).
Maybe you want to start your own business? Maybe you want to run a few DIY classes, maybe you’d like to get into blogging or start studying a new course? Whatever it may be don’t sit back and expect it to happen, plan ahead, prepare yourself and persevere.
I watched a video the other day about a girl who was born with no legs, she was literally thrown in the dustbin by her parents because they had already written her off as useless. She was found and adopted by an elderly couple who gave her one rule, never say can’t. That girl followed her dreams and became an amazing gymnast, although hard to believe it’s true. She overcame every hurdle, every stereotype and even proved her biological parents wrong.
Like Jennifer, you too can adopt the ‘I can’ mantra. You’d be surprised at how far your attitude can take you!
All I’ve got left to say 2016 is ready, are you?
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and now a Happy New Year!
Laura Jane
