Happy New Year

It is a new year. How fast the time flew by. 2009 was a decent year, I learned a lot about myself. I pushed myself into doing things out of my comfort zone, I finally made it to the NC coast and started my lighthouse hunting, and I made it to Pilot Mountain. I've made new friends, lost one and made many wonderful contacts. I met Faith Ringgold, one of my favorite artists/writers and I was a participant in my town's Holiday Parade. That was so much fun.

I am ready and excited for the New Year. I am not making resolutions, I have goals and I'm open for cool and unusual surprises. I am working in a new art medium, needle felting and will have something to show at the end of the month. There will be bears, pirates, merfolk, faefolk, oh my!

I have rearranged my living quarters, so I now have a bonafide art/workroom. I can close the door on hurricane activities.

Along with getting rid of holiday weight, some of my other goals are:
-complete edit of my kid's manuscript
-edit a sci-fi story and enter it into a competition
-create more pieces of art
-be more frequent with my blog postings
-finish more of my unfinished quilt projects
-travel more
-laugh more

Crazy? Yeah, but you only go around once and I'm going to have a blast this year. I am going to make my life, wild, crazy and exciting along with all my creative endeavors. I am so excited, I can't sit still.

I do hope you'll come back.
