Happy New Year 2019

Oh my goodness, where did 2018 even go? I can't believe how fast the time has flown, here we are in 2019 already! I hope you all had a lovely holiday season. I really enjoyed the lead up to Christmas - shopping for gifts in the city, decorating the house, and opening advent calendars :) And the day itself was lovely and stress-free.

As is customary I've spent some time reflecting on the past year and the year to come. In 2018 I created a whole bunch of new artwork, completed a 100 day project, opened an online store on Society6 and sold products with my designs on them (such a thrill and honour to see my work become part of people's lives!), enjoyed a few wonderful holidays in new places, and welcomed a new kitty to our home.

In 2019 I'll be trying to figure out how to work effectively on multiple life goals at the same time :) I want to move forward with my art business, create with focus, exercise and eat well, consciously buy less stuff, and create a calm and nurturing home environment.

Working for yourself requires a lot of discipline compared to working for an employer, so I've set out a list of goals that I really want to focus on this year. It's way too easy to get distracted by shiny new creative projects, so I've got to make sure I don't lose sight of my top priorities.

I hope you have a wonderful year ahead, and I look forward to sharing news more regularly with you in future :)
