A New Year

Happy 2013  

I can NOT believe it’s already January.

I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not to write a post about my resolutions for this year or what I hope to accomplish.  Then I thought, what the hell, maybe by putting them out there I just might be more inspired to follow through!

I have a bunch of resolutions on a personal level that I won’t delve into here, suffice to say that I want to make the most out of every day, to live true to myself and to step out of my comfort zone every once in awhile.  All of this leads to one resolution that crosses the creative/personal/professional boundaries – better time management.  And by this I mean, spending just a little bit of time everyday to:
  • Tidy/clean – clutter f*cks with my creativity. I have a hard time getting into a groove when there’s stuff piled around me…which might explain my loss of sewing mojo the last month or so cause I’ve been living in pile o’ crap.  
  • Sew – I think I’m going to follow Tilly’s 15 minutes a day plan.
  • Knit – knitting’s my zen, nuff said.  I have no problems sneaking in knitting time.
  • Read – my back log of books is calling my name.  I recently went on a binge and have a stack of new fiction I can’t wait to dig into.  I’m on goodreads here 
  • Maggie – Mags is getting to the age where she’s needs little bit of extra primping and prodding to keep her at her healthiest.  She’s been good to me, this wonderful, itchy old gal, and I want her around as long as possible.  

From a business standpoint, I want to keep up my commission work and get more comfortable charging what I believe is fair (I habitually underestimate my time) instead of worrying that it will chase customers off.  If it does, so be it.  And, I’ve got a bunch of projects up my sleeve I want to get finished and out in the world to see how they’re received.  Hopefully I’ll be able to share soon! 
Lastly, I want to finish some of my works in progress that have been hanging around 75% done after I got distracted with something else new and shiny. More on these to come…
I could go on and on -- everyone knows I love to dream and plan!!  What about you out there – any resolutions in particular?
