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!!
Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
No reason to do a “Year in Review” blog post this year since I didn’t do much blogging. I spent 2015 focusing on the FB group I started for those that Own, Use and Love their Singer Quantum Stylist 9960 sewing machines. It’s been a tremendous success. I’m so proud to have started this community and that so many wonderfully, talented people have shared in this format. So now it’s time to look towards 2016!!
Here’s to a Happy New Year and being open to many new and exciting creative experiences for all of us!
Have a Happy Creative New Years Day!!
