This is the time of year that many announce Resolution’s for the New Year…..or NOT. I’ve never been one to do this, however I do like to make small changes each year as a way of moving forward. This year I’ve decided not to plan anything creatively…..anything at all. I want to be guided by the phrase that inspired my blog in the first place. “Strikes My Fancy”. I truly admire those of you out there that sew or create with a plan, but that just doesn’t work for me. I enjoy being inspired along the way by a piece of fabric, a color or an idea when it “Strikes Me”. Planning it all out in a nice neat scheme seems to make me lose interest or ambition. It makes me feel very boxed in and restricted. What if I see something that inspires me at THAT moment and it’s not within my “PLAN”? Well, then I’ve felt a sense of failure to not have followed through with that plan. A sense of personal derailment. Not this year!
I truly enjoyed the creative journey I was on a couple of years ago. I was making a point to try lots of new creative things. That’s part of what inspired me to start a You Tube video series featuring the Singer Quantum Stylist 9960. It’s certainly grown into something I’m very proud of! I will be going back and revisiting that approach and see where it guides me!!
