New Year - New Goal

Here it is September 9 and I've just remembered that September 4 was the day that I started this blog. One year has passed by already! As everyone knows, time flies, and this is true whether you're having fun or not. Thankfully, this past year has been fun.

My goals when I started the blog were to create (check, did that), tell you about some of it (check, did that), and make some cool new friends/reconnect with old friends (check, did that) along the way. My goals for the upcoming year remain the same but I'm adding a new one: sell more work. Don't worry, you don't need to stop reading in fear that I'm going to be hitting you up for your money. (Although I certainly won't discourage you from parting with some of it!) When I say "sell more work" it means that I aim to use the internet better to get my work out there via etsy, cafepress, facebook, etc. I hope that this blog can help too.

It's said that part of the success of achieving any goal depends on telling others about that goal.

You never know when someone might be able to provide a great contact at a gallery, a gift shop, an ad agency, a licensing company, an interior design firm, a ???.

Or, give you a super how-to computer tip.

Or, tell you something you might not want to hear but need to know anyway.

Or, just smile a big smile just when you need it.

So, I hereby proclaim that I will be working hard on my artwork and on selling it too. Now, it's out there. It's floating about. It's partly under my control but partly out of my control. Yikes, this is scary but exciting too. What happens from here? Guess I'd better get busy!

All the best,

Borrow away! :) Let's keep working toward them together as you always have good ideas for me and I hope I give some back to you.

Wonderful goal you set for yourself. Now that you have written it down and sent it out to the universe you will be blessed with success. Betcha!!!

Wonderful new goal to add the the ones you have already established here, Lorrie ! I feel like September is the beginning for many new endeavors. I certainly find it a lot more motivating than January ! ;)
Here's to getting $$ for doing what we love best !
