The New Year always brings thoughts of new possibilities.  For me this year, it's all in the "doing".   The goals for the year will all be doable and measurable. 

As it relates to my art work, my first goal is to use the materials I have on hand.  For many of us crafty folks there are an abundance of supplies and materials on hand for the projects we hoped to make, plan to make , and sort of made.  I have no particular projects in mind.  Whatever materials I have on hand will be the starting point.   We'll see where it takes us!

My other goal is to complete at least one piece using each of the tutorials I have purchased from some expert polymer clay artists who have shared their skills so generously.  I have collected a few of these (and have plans to purchase more).  I am excited about the learning and inspiration that awaits me as I try my hand at these projects.

So when do I start?  Today will be fine.  It's all in the doing.  I'll keep you posted on my progress.

Wow, your goals are the perfect wording of what I feel and try to achieve but can hardly express so well. I hope you don't mind me following them - they really are so what I would like too. Happy new year.

Great Kristina! I would love for you to follow them. It's so nice to have company. We'll keep each other motivated.

Hi, Marcia! My goals also sound a lot like yours! I have so much stuff that I had to have, but never have used Also, I have tons of tutorials I have never tried My other adventure to keep me going is I've joined Anke Humperts flickr group called “52 pairs of earrings a year” project The goal is to make a pair of earrings a week Mostly polymer clay, but not always Wish you would join too! (My period key is currently broken on my laptop, sorry) I will keep watching your blog to see what you make!

Hi Doreen. Thanks for the post about Anke's earring project. I think I will join. I hope it's not too late.

Hooray, Marcia! I am happy to see that you have joined the earrings group! I'm already starting to think I'm going to get behind, but I'll just keep at it!
