New Year with a Resolution

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions. So that’s totally why I decided to make one for 2013!

2012 was amazing! I had the awesome Nepal trip in December (more on that in another post) and then, as an accidental bonus, I got my sister-in-law’s CRV to replace the Buick I’ve been driving for the past 7 years (more on that in another post). So in the wake of those good things, I was contemplating what I could do during 2013 to make it awesome as well and then I was all resolution city.

So for 2013 I am gonna be making something everyday. I plan to spend about 20 minutes per day either working on my art journal, making ATCs, bookbinding, working on an altered book, or anything else I come up with or you suggest that catches my fancy.

I have three rules for this project:

  • Every day.
  • 20 minutes.
  • Post a photo on the internets.
  • I spend a lot of time wanting to be a creative, artist-type person so here’s where I’m going to start putting it into practice!

    In preparation, I’ve set up a dedicated table in my office for this project:

    I’ve cleaned up and organized my work space so I can find things and spend my 20 minutes actually creating and not setting up to work. Part of my Christmas gift from my mom was a gift card to purchase supplies. Shopping for art supplies: Done!

    So I’m starting on Monday! I’m going to be figuring out the posting thing as I go. I may post to Twitter, which I have set to automatically post to Facebook. I don’t know if I’ll be setting up some sort of gallery for this website or what exactly yet. I’ll be talking to my personal web guru about that part of the project. I’ll let you guys know as soon as I’ve got it set up!

    Ways you can help: Suggest ideas! Comment on pictures! Shout encouragements if you pass me on the street! Do something creative yourself and then show it to me!

    Here’s to a creative 2013!
