1. Create A Masterpiece
I have an art degree, the know-how and tools, but rarely ever create art for myself. This year is the year to create! I bought a large framed "painting" at the Salvation Army a few months ago for about $8.00. I want to paint over it and create a beautiful piece for my living room.
2. Frame Old Treasures
I have pretty much every piece of artwork I have ever created. I went through all of my high school and college artwork last week and pulled out some pieces to frame and display in my home. What is the point of having it if you never look at it? Maybe a gallery wall?
3. Downsize Personal Art Collection
Like I said, I pretty much have every piece I've ever made. Including all 23 prints from my 23 print series. I really don't need to have 23 copies of the same piece of art. I've never been motivated to sell my own art and so my goal is to actually package and sell some of my artwork.
4. Execute Some Pins
So many pins, so few of them actually attempted. I want to continue trying new recipes and creating beauty using my boards on Pinterest as inspiration and documenting my attempts here. Viva la Pinterest!
5. Send Letters
Send some sort of snail mail to family and close friends at some point this year. Last year we sent Valentine pictures. Maybe Valentines will become our yearly mail-out.
|A Turkish Valentine|
|Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds|
|Thinking of You|
6. Family Trip
Family vacation time. Plans are in the works already... :)
7. Have A Party
I love planning and throwing a party. I have at least two murder mystery dinner party games unopened in my game closet, a new collection of mini glass coco cups for a hot chocolate party, I love me a good ol' Asian Dinner Party Pot Luck or even a Turkish Dinner Party. Just need to pick the party and start planning.
|Chicken with mushrooms, kofte (meat balls), Turkish pilav, assorted veggies.|
Fill at least one sketch book. I have so many blank books and never actually draw anything unless someone asks me to. These inspire me.
Draw some portraits of Zach, Lucy, and Peter and pick one to frame and display. This one is a tall order, but I looked at my head drawings and portrait drawings and it made me wish I had some of the people I love most.
Learn how to do a fishtail braid. Seems complicated, yet easy?
I will keep you updated on the progress! :D
