Happy new year, everyone! Feel like I haven’t blogged in ages, and I know I have fallen behind a bit – life just gets overwhelming sometimes. Anyhoo, I hope you’ve all had a fantastic festive season and are feeling refreshed and amped to kick 2013’s butt! If you’re still on holiday, YAY and enjoy 🙂
I don’t make resolutions as such, but I have written down a few goals that I’d like to accomplish this year. Trying to get more organised is very big on that list! I thought I didn’t have much to share from the past year, but looking back on 2012 it feels like it was a very long year – so much happened that feels like it was much longer ago already. So this is going to be a pretty long post to make up for the lack at the end of last year!
My biggest and best moment in 2012 was most definitely leaving my job to go solo as a freelance illustrator and designer. I’m so grateful to be able to say that after 6 months of it, I’m surviving and not living in a box and eating cat food. I’m so happy and grateful that I got the opportunity to make that decision and so hugely grateful that it’s going ok so far 🙂
For the longest time I’ve been stuck in a not-creating rut where I guess I was just afraid to draw and experiment. I’m so glad I was able to overcome that and have gotten round to playing around with a few mediums I haven’t used before and trying to push myself in different directions. Hope to do a lot more of that this year! Practice can do wonders.
And of course the three gorgeous loves of my life! A perk of working from home is having them all perched nearby and being able to grab them for quick mid-work cuddles. (I know, I’m going deeper into Cat Lady Land, but it makes me happy, so I’m ok with that).
Shoh! What a bumper post. Overall just very grateful for the changes that have come about.
What was your biggest moment of 2012? I’d love to know, so please do share 🙂
