To welcome this New Year, we thought it might be fun to talk to some of our Living Crafts friends- present and past contributors, all very creative people, and see what goals, visions and dreams inspire their craft resolutions for 2012!
Please join us in celebrating this new year, filled with potential, craft and creativity, by reading our craft resolutions and sharing your own, in our comments section!
Elizabeth Seward’s Craft Resolutions for 2012:
New Year, New Beginnings!
After a challenging year in 2011, I am resolved to move forward consistently this year into work I love, and that also nourishes me.
I am calendaring in two hours of writing time five days per week, and my resolution is to stick to this 80% of the time. My dearest hope is to complete (and publish) a book that has been simmering on the back burner for a while: Teaching through Stories: Jane and Jeremy Learn to Knit. I love to write, and to tell stories, and to teach, and to knit, so this project brings together several pieces of myself.
At the same time, I am launching my website, newly designed by a young man who was my knitting student when he was in 1st grade. More than handwork, even more than teaching handwork skills, I love to teach how to teach them.
