How come that time just flies so fast. It was just Thanksgiving, Christmas came so fast, and of course now the New Year. Hopefully things will slow down a bit.
So, I usually do not make New Years Resolutions. But, I will make one exception, when it comes to my crafting world.
Like so many, I have just way to much crafting supplies. To much paper, and to many of everything. It is just getting out of control. I have no more space to go to, I am already taking over parts of my living room. I was just contemplating what I could move onto my shelf that would look pretty, like a big jar of ribbon scraps, or my laces. What will be next? My bedroom or even the kitchen. We live in a rather small house, and space is very limited. So I am constantly tying to figure out what to move where, and that takes time away from what I would like to do.
So, for the year 2013 I will go on a "Stash-Diet". I have done that before for a while (about 6-9 month), but not for a whole year. Now I will have to still get glues etc and stuff I may run out of and truly need, but no purchases of "extras". Of course I will use my gift card and money I received at Christmas for something fun, and any gifts etc I may receive during the year of course. But otherwise I will work very hard on not buying anything new. Boy that will be hard. But I think I can do that.
And my other resolution is to start an Art Journal. I have started a small one last year, but have not done much, mostly sketching. I have a nice big book, and I would love to try out mixed media techniques. I do have enough paint, pencil, inks, etc to make it work. And I have decoupage glue and lots of paper. So nothing should stop me.
Of course I try to be a better blogger. I am still having a hard time with loading pictures. The whole process seems to long. So I will have to research if I am doing something wrong, or if it will just get easier with practice.
So, this week I am going to unearth my desk, again, and start on my 2013 journey.
I hope you will all have a fantastic crafty year as well.
Thanks for visiting me in my little corner,
