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 :)

Happy Christmas 2017

Where on earth did 2017 disappear to?? It's Christmas already, I can't believe it!

Happy Christmas, Merry New Year

It's been a bit quiet here for the last couple of months while I've been busy dealing with other areas of my life, but I'm super excited for 2018, and looking forward to creating and sharing more work with you.

While I've been planning for next year, I've been looking through past projects. Last year I created a series of twenty five Christmas baubles as part of a creative advent challenge. You can see the individual pieces in more detail on my Flickr account, and the finished set is pictured below.

I'll be spending Christmas day with my partner and sisters. All the presents are ready and waiting to be wrapped. Just a bit more cooking to do and we'll be set. I wish you and your loved ones a very happy day, and a positively wonderful 2018! XOXO
