Well, Christmas and new years have come and gone and a new year has begun. This past year was a long one, lots of good times, some tragadies and misfortunes, some travel and some discovery. All in all I can’t say it was a bad year. I made a lot of new friends who have shared some really fun, exciting and enriching experiences. I finished my degree and actually recieved an honors diplmona in Graphic Arts and Web Page Design. I have gotten a few good commissions from it. Most recently HDS Retail International has choosen the catalog that I drafted, it will go into publication next week… I’m pretty excited… not to mention my companies inhouse publications that go out to all of our offices world wide as well as our monthly newsletters and advertising. All of this has contributed to my promotion to the position of Marketing and Sales Coordinator. So, with some exciting plans comming into 2006 I think this is going to be one of the best years yet. I hope you have a great year as well.
