Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and fun time over the holidays.
Each year I make at least one resolution. Last year I did pretty well. My resolutions all came to fruition except one. My littlest dog, Magoo still won't use the doggie stairs to go up onto the bed by himself. I was really going to give it my all in December, but due to my injury I had to let that goal go. He turned 3YO on New Year's Day. My little boy is growing up! But I digress, once again I've made some resolutions and while I don't usually share them at the start of the year, I'm anxious for this year to get going.
Yesterday I began a very labor intensive project. My studio has racks and racks of china and bins of tile all along the perimeter of the room. I'm going through everything and parting with some things...either to sell or to donate to a thrift store. I'm trying to make some space for some new projects I want to try this year. So far I've unearthed some things that have brought back many fond mosaic memories of past projects.
I have a series of art deadlines between now and March. Everything is getting scrunched into a tighter timeframe because my right arm is still recovering. I'm trying to design everything in my head and get all my supplies ready so I'm ready to go whenever my arm will let me.
It's my sincere hope that 2009 will bring a better life for so many people that are struggling right now.
