2017 - A Year of Creativity

Happy New Year, one and all!

I'm not one to make New Year's resolutions, but it's a great
time to start new hobbies or bring old ones back to life.

I love my job and my little corner of Etsy, but
these days, I don't even have the energy to 
read a few chapters before falling asleep,
let alone paint, draw or sew.

I've decided to reintroduce these loves into my life throughout the year.

 2017, for me, will be a year of creativity.


Already feeling more organised,  I've updated my new address book.

It was a gift from my daughter, who filled the blank
pages with quotes and drawings. I love it!

I've been creating new items of jewellery, which will make an
appearance in The Shop this month some time.

I've also been creating bowls, using scratched LPs and gramophone records.
I won't be selling these, though, but have been donating them to 
local charity shops and gifting them to friends.

You already know how much I love photography and am contemplating
the idea of selling photography prints or greeting cards in The Shop, too.

Finally, I've treated myself to a little sketch book, which I intend to carry 
around with me everywhere I go.  Something I haven't done in a while.

So, that's how 2017 is looking for me.
How about you... have you started something new?

  1. HeHe! I don't bother with New Year
    resolutions...Why should l..I'm
    perfect...!!! :). Well...Hope l can
    still take one breath after another!

    Do you know, l've seen those LP's..
    gramophone records..in shops, charity
    shops etc..never thought about getting
    one..think the gramophone needle would
    jump about a bit...as l've still got an
    old player..!
    And, l've seen them turned into clocks!

    So, sorry Yvonne..nothing new started...
    I will consult my 'spare' brain, to see if
    it's come up with anything....! :0).

    1. Ah, fair enough. You can't improve perfection!

      Thank you, Willie. Happy New Year, to the man with two brains :D

  2. Yes! Kickstart that creativity mojo! Those LP bowls are neat.

  3. This sounds and looks fabulous, Yvonne. May 2017 fill the Muse with all sorts of ideas and energy.

  4. Your ideas sound like a wonderful idea. I think the beginning of a year is always a great way for stimulating the motivation and creativity.

  5. Everything sounds wonderful!!! I love all your ideas!!! I have to say the LP bowls are really cool! I am looking into putting my art on clothes. I have to share on my blog soon. I think it would be a good idea to sell your cards in your shop! Here's to a creative 2017!! Big Hugs!

    1. Ooh, I look forward to seeing your creative crow clothing ♥
