2009. Already. And I'm ready to begin it.
I'm hoping 09 will be a more artful year. At least a year with more undistracted time in my studio. I want to do more, to learn more, to share more.
This not-so-lovely piece is the beginning of my 2009 art-sampler. Penciled dots, one for each day of the year, that I'll cover over with a tiny little lovely something. A new technique, a mini art quilt, a gathering from nature. Something that speaks to me.
I'll keep this in my studio and fill it as the days go by. And will share with you as time progresses.
And at the end of 2009? I'll have a 1x2' board full of artful reminders of my year. And a great sampler of where my creative journey took me.
I'm way excited to get started, to get back in there and work and play all at the same time. A few of you are kindly tapping my shoulder and asking why my etsy shop is still empty (sorry!). Journals have been the biggest request, so I'm working now on restocking those. And I have so many new ideas for other pieces.
So here's to new beginnings and fresh starts. Remember, you have to actually start. As Horace said, "He has the deed half done who has made a beginning."
