Resolutions and Plans

(aren't these cute notecards? I got them at Target)

Here are some of the resolutions that I made and kept last year:

Start an Etsy Shop
Keep blogging regularly
Comment more on other blogs
Display a painting at the Alumni art exhibit this summer
Split a CSA share with friends
Go Canoeing on Lake Calhoun
Start/join an Artist Trading Card group
Make a cake successfully from scratch

I'm not going mention all the ones that I didn't quite get to. However, here's this year's (not at all comprehensive) list:
  • Visit Franconia Sculpture Park
  • Go on more picnics
  • Renew Passport
  • Go Camping (at least twice)
  • Buy a digital camera
  • Learn how to use a sewing machine
  • Attend Sunday life drawing sessions at MCAD

  • Grow a windowsill herb garden
  • Volunteer work relating to teaching or art
  • Show art at a coffee shop
  • Have professional slides made of my work
  • Visit the Museum of Russian Art and the Weisman Museum

  • Design my own fabric with Spoonflower (
  • Have more dinner parties
  • Buy fewer magazines (it's a sickness!)

Maybe your resolution should be to not break anymore bones, instead of just trying not to.

You can cross one of these off! You bought a digital camera last night!!! Also, while you haven't attended any life drawing sessions yet we have actively discussed it! Yahtzee!
