What else is New Years for???

Sometimes I make New Years resolutions like, “Lose 25 pounds” or, “Fight for world peace”. Over the past year, I have felt the urge to pee…..just kidding…..i have felt the urge to create more physical tangible things….I got a sewing machine for my birthday. It sits on my kitchen table and every time I look at it, I want to make something. I’ve tried so many different kinds of “art” (in quotes because everyone’s definition of art is different….and some are scaaaaary) but I have some sort of weird fascination with fabric, beads and sequins. When you shop, do you want to touch all the fabrics? I do. I think this year I’ve learned a lot about what I enjoy doing, what I want to try and what will fulfill me on a intellectual and creative level…thus…..the resolutions!!!!! (drum roll)

1. Concentrate on sewing items from patterns more precisely
2. Buy a sketch book, start drawing and writing down my ideas for design. Take pictures of design that inspires me. Incorporate these things into an organized book
3. Read a book about textiles.
4. Design, make a pattern for, and sew together an original handbag
5. Incorporate sequins and beads into design
6. Create enough original products to have a table at Eastern Market one Saturday next fall.
7. Find a church
8. Try surfing
9. Visit my sister at college
10. Go to the gym at least 3 times a week (earth shattering, I know)
