Looking Ahead

Waiting for Santa

I can’t hide it. I’m an incurable optimist. I think I must always have been, even in my downest moments. So every year I do make resolutions and goals and lots of thinking about the year ahead. I do it at other times during the year too but there’s something so neat and fresh about a new calendar year. Here’s a few of my mostly art and work related ones – it’s hard to separate my personal life goals from my business life goals since I picked work that was part of both so there’s some crossover here!

  1. The big financial one, of course: I’d like to double my craft sales again. Online or offline or both
  2. Try a whole bunch of new clay techniques. Transfers, more abstract canes, sculpting…
  3. In the same vein: try a whole bunch more new jewellery making techniques like more advanced metal and wire work and resins
  4. Get back in the swing of things with my graphic art and design software
  5. The above because I want to get my photography mojo back. It’s been more than 10 years since I was really into it
  6. Get an article published. In paper. In a craft mag!
  7. Become more active. The life one that snuck in to the list. We have rackets and a membership now. Wish me luck
  8. Write a whole heck of a lot more. Blog, post, letters, notes, lists, tutorials, chats… everything
  9. Continue streamlining and organizing my professional work life. Keep on with the “little improvement” routine
  10. Remember: less stuff, more people and more doing
