My main creative focuses for this year are going to be STITCH (quilts and mixed media fibre art) and HANDMADE BOOKS AND JOURNALING. I love mixing paper, fabric and stitch, so if I can make some projects combining those things together I'll be in my happy place.
As well as the new classes from yesterday, I already have a number of classes which I would like to continue exploring (see my workshop headings on my sidebar) and some incomplete projects which I would love to see finished.
I read about Hanna's idea of #365 in 2013 and was almost tempted until sanity reigned moments later! I then toyed with the idea of "52 things" - 1 creative thing a week for 2013..then I realised that if I just complete all the pages in this journal, that will be 52 things on its own!
I've already done 2 more pages and we've only had 2 weeks of the year so far so I'm on track ;-)
Will be practising micro-movements each week as well as trying to stay off the computer and focus on creating when I get the chance.
So this is how it will go each month::
Weeks 1 & 3 : Books and Journals
Weeks 2 & 4 : Stitch or Quilt
Week 5 : an occasional bonus week so focusing on the project I most want to complete
I still intend to have Workshop Thursdays - most Thursdays I will put other things aside and devote the hours of 10-2.30pm to a particular project or playday. Other days will be whatever time I can snatch around other commitments.
All this to start properly in February - the boys start back at school on Monday 4th.Working on Creative Jumpstarts when I can until then.
Wish me luck for COMPLETION.....
