Here we go.
This is how I want my creative year to be. I want to start a project with the end in mind. So what I will do is very similar to what I did in 2012. I didn’t get to finish everything but I have a 70% success rate – not bad! I also completed so many creative projects that year I was quite proud of myself.
Now to replicate that pride (and up the success rate), I have the following goals:
1. Photography projects. These are year-long goals, with the intention of being able to have an album of the pictures by the end of the year.
Project 52 (weekly portraits of the kids together & individually)– done. Four People Twelve Times (monthly family pictures)– done
- Project Love Me (weekly selfie)
2. Project Life. – currently still doing (Goal: finished by March 2015)
3. Finish Ali Edwards’ 31 Things class with writing outputs (writing exercises – I am still thinking whether I should share my output or not).
4. A-Z about Aggie (writing + photo prompts, inspired by Cathy Zielske). – I want to do this now that I am 33. – currently still doing. (Goal: finished by February 2015)
5. Do A Week in the Life.
Do 30 days of lists again.- done
7. Create dream board.
8. Finish one themed album a month, pictures + words. No scrapbooking kits necessary.
9. Finish the kids’ first year albums.
10. Finish Matthew’s elementary school album.
11. Create photo wall.
12. Create Christmas card.
Learn a new skill/creative hobby. started lettering & doodling – took class in May, dove into it by November (2014)
14. Be brave enough to start (and finish) Dad’s remembrance book by his first death anniversary (September 1st).
Begin with the end in mind.
The first quarter of 2014 is almost over but it is never too late to start, get organized and CREATE.
