It's a New Year

Happy New Years Everyone!

Do you have a New Years resolution this year? 

My main one is to spend less time on the computer. Obviously, I'm not doing very well at that so far, but I'll keep trying.  But I find I've become much more sedentary over the past couple of years. We finally got a high speed internet connection here, and now it's just too easy to come online and just stay.  I really need to get back to being more active.

Another resolution is to have more positive thoughts about my art. I'm often told I'm my own worst critic, so I'm just going to try not to do that. The art journal is helping, I think, since I know what goes in there is nothing more than play, but I seem to be willing to share it anyway. That's a good start, I think.  I do know that what I produce has improved over the years, and that I made some major strides in the past year, so I'm really hoping to have a much more positive outlook for this year.

The only other resolution I can think of is to finally open an Etsy shop. I've been wanting to do that for the past couple of years, and while I have a few ideas in my head, I've only just begun to work on them this past year. I'm definitely closer to this goal than I was last year, but I've still got some work to do first.

So tell me.....what resolutions did you make for the upcoming year?  Maybe we can encourage each other.


  1. I MUST get back into shape. I also need to do something photography wise, but I'm not sure what. Been fighting a cold and the blues this week, so I haven't been too interested in doing much of anything.

    Happy New Year!!

  2. Happy New Year! I haven't spent a lot of time coming up with resolutions, mainly because I usually don't stick them out. Good luck with yours, can't wait to see your shop.
