Heidi Daus celebrates 10 years with HSN!
This new year is a special one for me in that it marks my 10th year at HSN. I am so lucky to have forged new relationships and met so many people behind the scenes and in my audience. I am truly blessed to be able to practice the thing that I love, designing jewelry, and to be able to share it with all of you. To quote a famous song – you have been the “wind beneath my wings” with your enthusiasm and support throughout the last decade. WOW – can you believe a decade has gone by?
As we roll into 2013 I think of the past year and the years before and try to think of what I would work on improving in my life. Better know as “resolutions” I like to think of these as “achievable goals”. For one, I’d like to spend more time with my friends and my family. Time is something we cannot get back – so think of how you would like to spend yours! I recently moved my design studio to my corporate offices and I often bring my youngest Shane in after school. Here he can see how “Mom” works and can even be a part of it. Shane is quite interested in stringing beads and has a special talent for pattern and color – I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! This is just one example of how I can turn my busy work schedule into a family activity.
Having fun and playing in the workplace is also something that I feel brings unexpected results to the end product. I’ll never forget the day when my son Alexander video taped a parody of the song “Call Me Maybe” in our office. We had everyone wearing my jewelry and dancing – even the local paving contractor got into the act and wore my “Breathless” necklace! What is life without fun? Goal #2 – HAVE FUN!
I believe that resolutions stick by perseverance and by not setting the bar to high. Want to lose weight? Don’t try and lose it all in a few months – give yourself a year! Get out of debt? Chip away at it! Results are much more gratifying the harder we work. And speaking of hard work – my team and I have been designing up a storm these past few months and have we got surprises for you?
YES INDEED! When I appear on HSN this month you will be seeing over-the-top, show stopping designs for the very first time ever! The jewelry just keeps getting better and better and I am positive it is because I get such a kick out of making it. I promise you won’t be disappointed with what’s coming next!
Lastly, I so enjoy seeing and hearing from you on my Facebook page. We have so much fun, don’t we?
Wishing you all a healthy and happy 2013!
