New Year's Res-ART-lutions

Often we think about things we'd like to accomplish in a new year such as... lose weight, eat healthier, re-organize the attic, get a new job, give up smoking, take that trip to Europe... and so on. But rarely do we actually think about what we'd like to accomplish creatively.

We'd be a little biased if we told you that attending the fabulous, life-changing, mixed-media Art Retreat that is Art & Soul should be on your list, but hey — we know what a blast it is! But really — we'd love to hear what your artistic goals are for the new year. Did you want to finish up all your UFO's (UnFinished Objects)? Start a journal? Maybe you're going to pick up knitting. Perhaps you got a how-to book or art supplies for Christmas and you're going to try out some new projects. Have you always wanted to take up painting? Jewelry-making? Sewing? Dollmaking? Maybe you'll even be taking some classes at Art & Soul where you'll be learning something new!

Whatever your plans, we'd love for you to share them with us here. Put it out there for the whole world to see. Make that promise to yourself — to put or keep creativity in your life. And have a fantastic New Year!

Cheers to a happy, healthy, artistic 2012!

  1. I'm going to work on making more dolls (out of paper clay) and also doing more "series" works on canvas. Wish me luck!

  2. I want to get "the room" cleaned and straightened enough to even see what UFOs I have. I know there are LOTS".


Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting the Art & Soul blog. We appreciate your comments and feedback!
