The amazing Jess of Epheriell Designs recently asked me to be part of a 'Blog Hop', where a group of bloggers share their creative dreams and goals for the coming year. Jess is one inspiring lady, she runs a successful Etsy store, a zine, a blog and various other projects and its always exciting to see what she is up to, so of course I was happy to be involved.
Today my posting partner is Prim and Propah - so check out her blog to see her creative goals and dreams. So without further ado - here are mine!
The first two are much more dreams than actual goals, a lot would have to happen in order for these things to take place, but I can always dream! And the second two are of course more realistic
1. Move out of my home studio, into an actual studio. Obviously my orders would need to drastically increase for me to be able to afford two lots of rent, but my small apartment is just not suited to running this business from home!
2. Quit my ‘day job’. I am still working part time to cover my living expenses, and it would be an absolute dream if Hopeless was taking enough income to pay myself a wage.
3. Take more photos. I dare say this on a lot of peoples lists! But I have this awesome camera and I would really like to learn how to use it properly, and record more behind the scenes and general what I do everyday sort of stuff.
4. Draw. Paint. Cut and Paste. I used to spend a lot of time drawing and painting which I really enjoy, but it has really taken a back seat what with all the sewing I have to do now. I have planned to do some prints for the new range which I plan on drawing so I am really looking forward to making drawing more a part of my work.
What are your creative goals and dreams for the new year?
