I’m so excited for the start of the new year. I am not one to make new year’s resolutions, but this year I thought I would write down some general aspirations. 😀
1. Get more healthy, meaning exercise regularly at least 6 times a week. I am trying a consequences system in which I don’t get to craft after 2 pm (my most creative times seem to be in the evening) unless I have done some exercise earlier that day. The only exception to this would be if I’m not feeling well, but really, if I’m not feeling well I probably shouldn’t be crafting either. LOL
2. Continue to regularly create and share free digis. For the past 9 months, I have released a free digi every week. I may adjust this down to twice a month, but I haven’t decided yet. I have to assess my work and other commitments and will let you all know my intentions in the next week.
3. Keep a thankfulness journal (art and written). Even if it is just one sentence a day, I want to be thoughtful about and appreciate the good things (of which I have many) in my life. I have a notebook I am excited to decorate for this (post to come soon).
I am also excited to share the news that I am a guest designer for Little Blue Button Stamps for the month of January 2015. Woot woot! My first project will be shared on January 17 and my second will be on January 28. I will also be trying out for a spot on the Not2ShabbyShop design team in the near future, so please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope 2015 brings you and yours good health, much happiness, and wonderful crafty adventures! Big hugs, Kristina
Good luck on your aspirations!
Thanks so much Linda! Well, I sprained my ankle this weekend so the exercise portion of my aspirations will have to wait for a bit. LOL My hubby joked that I didn’t need to sprain my ankle just to get out of exercising. LOL Hope your 2015 is starting out better! Big hugs, Kristina
Your fur babies are adorable.
1.Be easy on yourself, 6 times a week is quite ambitious, unless it is in small increments. Sometimes, if I am not feeling well, crafting can help me heal.
2. Again, be easy on yourself. I don’t want you to have a ‘crafty burnout’.
Best wishes on your GDT spot. I think you can do what you set your mind to do but be gentle on Craftypaws.
Thanks for sharing this, just a caring friend wanting you to succeed.
Happy Crafting in 2015,
Good luck on your resolutions. I do craft when I am sick though. Nothing makes me feel better than creating something.
I craft when I am sick too. XD I actually sprained my ankle this weekend and I am drawing like there’s no tomorrow. LOL Happy new year Viki! xoxo, Kristina

Aww thanks so much Diane! Thank you so much for stopping by! I have missed you on YT and actually checked to see if my subscription to your scrapincrazed channel had inadvertently fallen off (as sometimes happens on YT). I hope you and your family are doing well. I hope you had a fabulous holiday season and 2015 brings you wonderful crafty adventures. Big hugs, Kristina
