ANNOUNCEMENTS(1) This year I am very excited to announce that Empress Bat's Journal has a wonderful guest blogger on board who will be sharing her wit and wisdom with you all as the muse takes her! You may know her from the Madam Monstrous blog, she also blogs on Zentangle Creations; she is a great person and I am really happy that she has accepted my invitation to be a guest blogger for Empress Bat's Journal.
(2) Last year I participated in the Documented Life Project (DLP) 2014; this year I have decided to double the creative projects I am participating in, so I shall be actively involved in creating pages in the Documented Life Project 2015, PLUS the Creative Every Day challenge! My DLP pages will be shared on this page and my Pinterest Board for DLP as usual, and the Creative Every Day challenge will be in a blog post each month or so with the subject line: CREATIVE EVERY DAY: <Month>: <Theme>.
(3) As promised in my December 2014 blog post I will share with you all my resolutions/goals for 2015 and I will monitor and review them through-out the year to see how I am proceeding with them. Feel free to share your resolutions in the comments of this post too! Publicly promising to achieve a goal and reviewing your progress is a handy tool to keep you on track!
MY GOALS FOR 2015
Write:I will blog on here and/or my Alternative Therapies Blog and/or my Herbalism website at least once a week.
I will actively keep a journal where I write at least a paragraph of either fact or fiction every day!
Organise:I will organise my time effectively to be able to fit in all my projects and volunteer activities, and my hobby business, and my studies, and my fulltime job without exhausting myself and ensuring I have time to relax and ..just be!
I will organise my stuff: I will stop hoarding and cluttering!
Create:I will actively participate in creative projects
I will design and create items to sell in my etsy store and via my Facebook Page
I will play music (whichever instrument I feel like playing at the time)
I will draw, just for fun
Positive:I will keep supporting small home, family run, and hobby business to be a positive force in keeping cottage industry alive!
I will continue Project Funmail to bring some happiness, smiles, and positivity to the days of others.
I will do things for myself and be mindful that I am a worthwhile part of the universe and deserve good things too
Improve:I will take steps to improve my hobby business
I will complete at least two tertiary qualifications this year
I will exercise more and look after myself
I will be organised
I will stay free of clutter
(clutter is a common theme here.. i have OCD and tend to hoard...)
Having said all that...all that is left for me to say in today's blog post is: may your year be full of wonder, happiness, and imagination!
