New Year's Resolutions, or lack thereof


My mom asked me what my New Year's resolutions were for 2010, and I surprised myself by echoing my husband's sentiments: "I'm not making any resolutions." Every year I have some vague idea that THIS is the year when I will organize my office & art space and make art to sell and so forth and so on. Well (as my hubby will tell ya), my work areas are still a mess, and while I did sell some art and teach workshops this year, it wasn't through any concerted effort on my part. So this year, I figure I'll try to do my best, and we'll see what comes of it!

My book arts group is doing a monthly mail art swap where we each send someone else in the group a piece of mail art each month. Above is the postcard I made for my friend Darlene, who is also a cat lover.

So Happy New Year, and let's all just try to do the best that we can in 2010!

LOVE the card, and the direction your art is taking you lately, Carolyn! I'm with you - NO resolutions! I never keep them (hence the lack of weight loss) and then I get even lazier. I like your sentiment of just doing our best - that sounds like a wonderful plan! :D Happy New Yer to you - and we WILL make a play date this year! :D

Thanks, Terri & Mel -here's to another art-filled year!
@Mel - I also ignored the annual "This year we're going to eat healthier!" and made tacos for dinner :D
