Happy New Year! Hope you had great holidays. Mine were good, there was lots of lying around and that is just what I needed. I have been back at it for about a week now but January is a wild one for me this year. This is the first I have been able to get to blogger. In the past week, I have signed up for Quilt Market, Bead and Buttons, and a 5k run. That's a lot of commitment in one week and it's kind of the opposite of my word for the year.
I have picked a word for this year and it's "Clear". I have big plans for this word. It fits in so many ways. I'm going to clear some products, clear my studio, and clear my mind. Whew! Big tasks and when I came up with this word, I knew it would be until February until I could get started on my word, but it will happen and I promise you will hear more about it.
Here's a drawing I started of my word, I haven't finished it yet, but it doesn't necessarily bother me, it's just clear at the end of the page and that is how I hope to be by the end of the year.
On that note, who's on Pinterest? It's the greatest and boy oh boy do I spend a lot of time on that site. I know some of you follow me. I have been pinning all sorts of studio ideas. I am in for a redo this year. I know you're thinking that I redo my studio all of the time, and I kind of do. But I think you have to keep your space inspiring and my home studio is due for a change. The last time I made over the place I didn't design fabric so I have been rearranging and adding tables, etc over the last few years. It's time for a full on re organize and a good clean out. The clean out fall under the word clear. :) See how that's working. But anyway, I am not ready for the studio redo yet, I think it will be later this spring, I am really thinking this one through, plus I have this idea that I really, really, really want a window in my studio. It's possible, but I am still waiting to hear how much it would cost. I really don't think I can swing it but I might try to be creative and come up with the funds for this one. I think it would make a huge difference in my work and mood.
So anyone out there got a word for the year? Let me hear it!
Have a great day,
