Despite my pessimism on the topic, I have, after a little bit of goading from coworkers and friends, decided on a few goals I'd like to pursue.
• I am going to organize my beading and crafting inventory in such a way that it makes it much easier for me to work on jewelry, photograph it, and have it uploaded either here on my blog or in my store.
• After everything is organized, I have a goal of creating, or at least working on, one piece of jewelry a day. This will also help me maintain my store better which is, well, empty right at this moment.
• In addition to that, I will resume in my creating at least one sketch a day for my sketchbook blog to continue improving my own art. I was told a long time ago by a dear friend and fellow artist that I admire a great deal that I do not draw enough. That's still true, and it's well past time that I changed that.
• I am dusting off all my old projects such as my Shadow Fiends game on Gaia Online. I miss my community of friends that had built up around it. This game really helped me improve my art a great deal.
I've actually started doing a lot of these things even before the New Year of 2014 came along, but that's where my ambitions lie currently. It's always good to have a head start, right? ;)
Anyhow. I had a pretty fantastic Christmas holiday with my family in Oklahoma, and I'm very much looking forward to creating wondrous new things this year. Speaking of wonderful, check out the goodies I got from the Bead Soup Cafe gift exchange:
|Check out the color of that ribbon and silk cord! So beautiful!|
|Beads for enameling and a beadweaving kit, too!|
Happy New Year and much love!
