Though I am usually one to be sad once the holiday season is behind me, I felt hopeful going into the new year. Even though my hopeful feeling took a serious shaking throughout the month, I came through it all determined to have this be a big year for me, artistically.
I started the month out with a project that pulled me out of my comfort zone. A very dear little girl I love had a birthday, and I wanted to send her a present that would let her use her wonderful, creative brain. So, I went to the store, bought a handful of fun papers in her favorite colors, and then got to work!
