Hi Everyone! On this first weekend of 2015, I’m setting goals for the year ahead. I thought I’d share my Mirror80 resolutions with you, not only because I’m super excited about them, but because getting the word out will encourage me to meet my goals. Accountability is a powerful thing!
First I want to thank my loved ones for supporting me in all that I’ve done and all that I’ve set out to do. In fact, the gold daily planner and gel pens shown above and below are from my best friend Stephanie (how did you know these were EXACTLY what I needed?)! The striped journal with the awesome worm pattern is from my hubby. He knows I’m obsessed with Nannie Inez, an Austin shop that curates amazing modern finds–like this notebook! Read more about it here.
So what about the goals?…
1. Collaborate more.
This is hard for me. I love spending time alone, and I’ve always thought that I do my best work alone. But I think that when you find the right person to collaborate with, you can’t help but grow. I want to reach out more in 2015 and partner with others–maybe even host an event! We’ll see where the year takes me…
2. Become skilled at creating eye-catching images.
I purchased a lovely mirrorless camera (similar to a DSLR but not as bulky) over a year ago, and somehow I haven’t taken the time to explore all of its features. I know enough to get by, but I’m tired of making excuses for not using it to the fullest. Same goes with learning Photoshop and creating more visual art, some of which I hope to share with you. It’s well past time–2015 is the year!
3. Grow Mirror80’s series.
Over the last few years, I’ve developed a number of series for Mirror80 that I’m very proud of. Still Life Style, ’80s Art Picks and ’80s Music Video Land are a few that come to mind. My goal is to continue expanding these series, and to dream up a few more in the new year. Some ideas are in the works…
Lots more to share and be excited about, but I’ll stop here for today and leave you with the promise of many amazing developments in 2015. What are your goals for the new year? Leave me a comment below!
