Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

First Sunday of the new year! First weekly wrap-up. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.I needed the long break and am now ready to return to my blog.

I take part in ROW 80 - a writing challenge that provides support and accountability. It helped my writing last year. There are 4  rounds of 80 days and at the beginning of each round, you set the writing goals you want to achieve. My goals are here.

If it works for my writing, I thought why not for my art? So after I wrote my goals for writing today, I wrote out what I want to achieve in my art for the next 80 days.

1.Create daily.
2. Work on stamp/quote cards.
3. Work on zentangles through "Let's Tangle" by Kathleen Murray
4. Work through "Sketch This" - might be fun to have a similar community sharing as "Wreck This Journal" hosted by Jamie Ridler (more later)
5.Go through 3 art/craft books - one a month and try a weekly project from the books.
6. Create collages for my picture book script.
7. Work on using up as many of my supplies as possible!

What goals are you working on?

One Little Word
Many people chose a word for the year. Mine is BLOOM. Here is a post I wrote on choosing it.

Full Wolf Moon Dreamboard
Tonight is the Full Wolf Moon and once again I have created a dreamboard. The question for consideration was: "What are you hungry for?"

I want to grow as a writer and artist this year. I have dabbled for too long. I need to step out and work harder and seek opportunities.

I was even able to include my last 2 words - embrace and joy!

Winter Vision Board
Just before Christmas I created my vision board (winter intentions) for the winter season. I have been doing this for some time. and along with the monthly dreamboards help focus on what I want to accomplish.

Over the holidays I created a few sets of ATCs. I have a few swaps left to complete and then I plan to take a break from taking part in swaps. The postage has gone up and I have many other projects I want to complete.

Bird APcs (6s)

You've accomplished a lot! And I like your art goals for the next 80 days. Might have to do that myself, I believe it can help one focus. I'm sure you'll bloom this year!
