Magick and Possibility....
"Hearth Magick" - the first piece of 2008
Much as I try to tell myself that there's nothing all that different about one day later, the New Year always seems to mark the beginning of something grand - a time to re-assess and set new goals, a fresh start, and a world of unending creative possibility.....so with umpteen notebooks full of sketches and notes, and a head spinning with images and ideas, I'm looking forward to a year of wonderful, wicked, wild creativity!
Goals for 2008 include an update to my website gallery, advertising in a national magazine, further experimentation with sculpting, and perhaps getting my feet wet with fiber arts as I consider a rug hooking class this winter.
I'll also be spending time preparing for the Ghoultide Gathering up in Michigan - soooooooooo excited about this, and I'd say I can hardly wait, but I have a LOT of painting to do first!
On a personal level, it won't be long until John has heart surgery, so I'll be doing what I can to make the experience as smooth and stress free as possible. That means an attempt at some kind of organization (did I spell that right? It's not normally a word in my vocabulary, lol)...And I expect a more than a few late nights in the studio. Which is fine. I just want him to sail through this and be well, and able to fully enjoy life's adventures with me. :)
But that's later....for now I want to wish everyone a happy, healthy and CREATIVE year, filled with your own adventures and endless possibilities. 2007 was absolute *magick* and I know 2008 will be better still!
