She Fights Fire With Water

Do you set goals for yourself ? Every New Year I make a list and keep it in my mind all year long.
This year is starting off fabulous and positive. What are some of your goals, on your list? Please leave a comment and share your ideas for the New year. One of the goals on the top of my list is to start creating again. I have been in a creative slump for awhile, nothing better than dear art friends to give you a little needed push. I created this art paper doll tonight and truly enjoy every moment. I used my favorite Catherine Moore Character Constructions Stamp collection. It is such an enjoyable challenge to assemble together all the doll parts from the different CC stamp collections. It is always a mystery to me what theme my art doll will be ? I can count on my art paper doll will be colorful and funky. This I always know for sure. ... Creating is so magical.
Wishing you an awesome "Creative New Year" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the bee on her knee.
I plan to lose a little weight, a lot of debt, paint a rocker and grow my hair longer.

Hi Laura,

Your girls are sooo inspirational to look at. Gosh, I don't think I could ever tire of artful dolls. Congratulations on your recent publication in Jan/Feb Somerset.

Thank you so much for your visit to my blog. As for my New Year's goal, well, to always look to the positive and not let negativity enter into the equation and to love and appreciate myself above all.

Wishing you the best and brightest that the new year has to offer.

xoxo
