New Year's Resolution Swap
This is going to Kacy on the CC Swaps group. I had a hard time getting going on this because I had not made any NY resolutions. :) After giving it some thought, here they are:
-Stop hoarding stuff. This is the impetus behind Kacy's card. I hoard my art supplies. I mean, what am I waiting for? This uses a chipboard tag booklet, Ranger Crackle paint that I'd never opened, and lots of doo-dads and doohickies I've been hoarding. Sending some of the doohickies to Kacy for her to play with as well.
-Find my voice. As a budding artist, I've spent a lot of time these past couple of years playing, learning techniques and ogling others' creations. I feel like I'm proficient, but I've yet to figure out my own niche. I'd like what I create to have its own style/soul. So, I guess the resolution is to keep growing.
-Stop creating just for swaps. I love swaps, I really do. But all my artwork goes to them and I'd like to focus on some pieces "just because" or just for home this year.
