Thinking back on the previous year, 2012 brings a smile to my face. I have so many things to be thankful for, all the friendships forged here in blogland...the kind written words in your comments and emails....the sharing of ideas and inspirations, etc. I'm truly looking forward to another great year with all of you ladies.
To help me in my quest of balance, I have set up a few constraints to my creativity. First of all, my studio setup is now a shared space, once again, with my living space upstairs. This will help me to remember to keep things small, on a controlled level. I need to get back into the daily routine of art journaling, and I'd like to incorporate that into my daughter's educational program. Also, my Etsy shop has evolved into ONE "Up-Cycled Crochet Pencil Holder Shop". With the decision to focus on ONE type of item at a time, I'll be able to keep a simple, cohesive look...and my mind can actually find the time to take a break here and there, rather than allowing myself to be pulled in too many creative directions! Creative Carmelina's Quest for Creative Serenity.....Can you imagine that?
Of course, with all that being said, I'm always changing things and reinventing myself, so who knows how long my good intentions will actually last. I will be giving it my best, however, so bear with me. (One last thought) I'm noticing that my blog follower numbers keeps steadily climbing, which is really such a thrill for me. Just as soon as I hit my 2000 follower mark, I want to host a giveaway! I definitely think that is something worth celebrating, don't you?!! Thanks for your daily visits. Here's to another great year.
