New Year, New Opportunities!

Each January I fool myself into believing that this year I will be on top of everything.  That being said, life seems to interrupt my plans.

As I get older, I have come to realize that perhaps my expectations were to lofty compared to the reality of the life I am living.  The "Super Woman" of the 90's has been replaced by a moment cherishing person of today.

So this year I am focusing on balance in both my public and private life, hoping that this will allow me to savory moments and opportunities that come my way.   I still plan to reach out for new opportunities, but I also want to focus on allowing myself some creative time in my studio so I can grow as an artist.

These past few weeks I have been working away in my studio planning and preparing samples for upcoming classes.  I am excited by this years classes and hope to see some of you in them!  As I write this post I am planning to submit some new class proposals to a few new venues, and I am getting ready to participate in the Craftsy Instructor Summit in Denver, CO.  I am eager to see what this will bring about.

How about you?  What are your hopes and dreams for 2016?  Please feel free to share--I am inspired by others plans and projects.  Wishing you the best, Linda B
