For myself, 2011 was a good year. Creatively, I adopted the mantras of keep it simple and just do it. And they worked...especially just do it. Both were repeated often enough to have become good friends who helped me move past my fears of failure, of creating something ugly, of not knowing what it is I'm doing. I'm keeping those mantras close in 2012 and adding a third.
You see, during my December visit with Pam, we made a list of goals for 2012 as well as a list of what ifs. At some point, I commented that I feel like I need to focus...to decide just what it is I'm doing - discharging, rusting or printing on fabric. Or...maybe...finding a way to combine the three, but mostly, I need to focus. It was a little comment in the midst of everything we discussed those days, yet Pam remembered. FOCUS and
are my Christmas presents from her. Thank you Pam! As always, you've sent the perfect gift.
Here's to 2012. May we all have a magically creative year. May we all have the chance to focus on our dreams. And may you all have a friend like Pam in your life.
