Happy 2014! I wish that all your big dreams, your hearts desires, become realities.
Do you do goals + resolutions? It has become a ritual for me to spend a couple of days thinking about what I want the next year to look like, what big dreams I want to achieve.
I have found that if I don't do this ritual, my mind is a mess, I have no direction, I am adrift.
I hate that lost + overwhelmed feeling.
I won't bore you with my dreams for 2014. I mean, while there is some value in sharing them, a sense of accountability I guess, I am not sure they are all that interesting to any one else.
But what I do want to share with you is one of the two commissions I was working on before Christmas.
Not for my kids this time! This was a painting for a client's daughters birthday. I loved working on this one, my client wanted very specific elements in the painting, full of personal meaning for her family. And I was so honoured that they chose me to paint this for their daughter.
So I hope you all enjoyed the holiday season, I am taking a bit of time off, I need to catch up with Lifebook 2013, before I start 2014, a blog update, and a shop to reorganise. I also want to spend some time with Bean before she starts big school!
I should be popping in a little, here and there, but no set schedule!
Do you have a ritual you do at New Years? I would love to hear about your rituals below.
