I need a hover board.
All the cool kids in 2015 should have a hover board. Though my children would tell me to stop being ridiculous, because all the cool kids obviously have the iPhone 5. And though we aren’t exactly fit for the Back to the Future franchise, I have to say, the world is offering some pretty amazing electronics, inventions and creative prospects and, having reminisced about the last 20 years and the respective evolution of technology and ideas, I’m inspired.
So, to 2015 and beyond, because my brain is frothing from my ears with ideas. I can’t sleep. And I can barely stay focused on my tax preparations (hence my total solitude and lack of creative productivity these last three weeks). I need to dip my toes in the pool of creative thought, then dive right in without even holding my nose, because I’m feeling adventurous. This year is my year to take risks, explore possibilities and enjoy the journey.
There be dragons in my future. And pendants featuring my photography. Cuff bracelets and woven link bracelets. Hair forks and scarf pins. And a crown. This will be the year of the crown. I am planning many more videos for my YouTube channel, Go Art Yourself, which will feature painting, sketching, clay and, of course, more wire wrapping. And classes. Finally there will be fall classes scheduled, locally, at least.
I’ve also planned home improvement projects including new carpets (okay, technically Magic Windows will be completing this project for me), and bathroom, kitchen and garage remodels. I’m going to plant a small potted vegetable garden on my balcony, and try my best not to kill everything. I’m also going to learn cake decorating. Which isn’t a home improvement project, but I didn’t feel it warranted it’s own paragraph. So… yeah.
In all, 2015 might prove to be the most fulfilling yet! I hope you’ll stick around to experience it with me.
What goals have you planned for the coming year?
