I'm feeling great about the new year and a fresh start. How about you? I've spent the weekend writing lists and thinking about plans & goals for the year. There's a lot to look forward to, and to feel fortunate about. I've got some new collaborations in the works I'm excited to share this year, and a whole new line of work coming in the spring, as well as a bunch of new decal designs. I have my work cut out for me, that's for sure, but I'm pumped!
In order to stay on track I've decided that this is the year I bring a strong sense of organization back into my life. Truthfully, last year really got away from me in many respects. There are stacks of paper everywhere, drawers are full, the studio is full of boxes, and my mind in the last months of 2010 was super cluttered. If it wasn't for Caitlin I would have never crossed the finish line.
So this year I'm implementing a few rules, chief among them is to put things away where they're supposed to go the first time. I'm hopeful I'll spend less time on needless sorting and more time on being productive both in work and rest. It was my intention to organize things over my little Christmas break, so that I might start the new year off on the right foot, but it turns out I actually needed to just rest. I'm glad I listened to myself. As a result I feel great and ready to spend January getting things in order. You'll notice some small changes in this space over the course of the month, and some big changes on my website come the end of January.
To kick off the month I'm so excited to have collaborated with the amazing Marina Porter. She has a beautiful blog called Collected Stories. I love the little glimpses into her life that Marina shares, and her photographs are always stunning. If you haven't already, I hope you'll venture over and look through her posts. Thanks, Marina, for joining me for January. I'm delighted to kick off the new year with you! The year of the rabbit begins today, and I think it's going to be the best yet.
Hugs all around, S
