New Year Resolution

New Year Resolution # 1
Live your wildest dream.

Well, it is January 2010, which is incredible. 2010! It even feels a little sci-fi to say. And it has me thinking. Mostly about the last ten years of my life. How I have spent them. How I have not. And about what I truly want to endeavor upon over this next decade. That is how New Year Resolution #1 came about. Live your wildest dream.

And what is a wildest dream you might wonder. For me, Earthen Adornments is it. I have always wanted to do this, to take an artistic pursuit or two and dedicate some real time to it. As far as I can tell, for me, 2010 seems to be just as good a time as any.

And so far, this year has started with a bang, so to speak. I have unexpectedly joined ranks with half of the nation and find myself rather unemployed at the moment. But we both know how life works, when one door closes another opens. In between looking for new work, I will have enough downtime to pursue this new adventure, aka New Year Resolution #1 - Earthen Adornments!

I am off to quite a start too. As serendipity would have it, I ran across Erin of OrangeInk on etsy. In just a few days we were able to finalize the concept of the logo above. And I L-O-V-E it.

Next up on the to do list:
- Research materials suppliers.
- Design my very own website.
- Sketch new floral designs (my favorite).
- Try mixing new dye colors and finishes.

All in all, I know 2010 and I just met, but I have to admit I am already quite smitten with its anything is possible attitude.
