Today I am going to have two separate blog posts planned and this is part 1. Part 2 will be posted later today as I have a very neat project planned for you, but I need to finalize it.
I try to keep everything fresh and new and as I have said many times, I LOVE change. I love trying new things and learning what works and what doesn’t work for me in my crafty adventures.
And since the new year is on its way, I have been thinking and planning on what I would like to do for next year.
In 2009, I decided I wanted to become a daily blogger and it was one of my favorite crafty decisions (it has pushed me to craft more and focus on what I love to do even more). At the time, I didn’t really have a goal or a plan in mind. I just needed something to help me escape from the grind of my college classes. I just wanted to blog for the fun of it and I have been a daily blogger ever since (two years going strong! LOL)
2010 has been a year of discovery for me. This year, I have really taken a long hard look at my life and the direction I was heading (personally as well as professionally) and had to make some serious decisions about career goals. In the end, I decided to follow my passion and couldn’t be happier for finally just taking the leap and running with it (I have been fighting it so long, I wanted to play it safe and follow the normal career pathway, but it really isn’t for me, at least not yet!)
and I have decided that 2011 is going to be a about really pushing my creative limits. I am going to be cutting back on my college schedule because I will be graduating and I will only be taking a couple of graphic design classes (not 6 classes like this semester and NO biochemistry which is really exciting) so I might actually have some *gasp* free time! My drawing teacher graded my drawing portfolio and said “I’d really like to see you push yourself further with your drawings. You haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of your abilities”. And I think that he is absolutely right. I have been holding back with my paper crafting too. I play it safe. . . and I don’t want to do that anymore.
I have some really fun things in store for the coming year to go along with my first year of non-college life!
I wanted to take a moment and tell you about one of them! I am starting a mini, sister blog called Imagination Land! Imagination Land is going to be my personal Cricut Project 365 -challenging myself to make a Cricut project a day!
I have been actually planning this for a few months and set the blog up right after I received my Cricut Imagine. The Imagination Land blog is NOT solely going to be about the Imagine Machine, it is about ALL of my Cricut stuff: Expression, Imagine, and my newest addition, the Gypsy!
I still plan on continuing to be a daily blogger here at SP, but I will be keeping my Project 365 over there. I thought it would just be easier to have my Cricut Project separate from my normal blog.
