No resolutions, but again I chose a word for the year. Discover. That's my word. I think the roots of creativity lie in the curiosity to learn and discover something new every chance you get! Here's my reminder. It was a quickly made little banner. I may embellish further if something strikes me.
It joins my previous three words on the studio wall.
This is also a good time to ponder how I used last year's word "intention." I think it has been in my head this year. At one point I wondered if I had lost track of my intentions, by focusing so much on work made to fit show themes and sizes and if it had any real meaning to me. I think I managed to refocus my intention and pull back to following my own goals of making work that has personal meaning to me. Maybe this year I will discover what that actually is!
For years one of my New Year tasks has been to put together a little book for the STASH group for the year. It has a schedule of meetings and contact info for each of us. Last year I never did get it done. We went all year wondering whose turn it was to hostess the next meeting. It is a simple thing to do, so I just did it. I know we all now have all our contacts in our phones and could easily coordinate our calendars, but I love these little booklets and enjoy making them.
There are a number of places on the web that show you how to fold these clever little single sheet booklets. No glue, no staples. Here is one.
