Week 18 – A new year, new hopes and dreams

Week 18 of 2014 was my last week of being 25 years old. As of today it’s a brand new year for me, full of new opportunities, new hopes and dreams and new starts.

This year I want to …

  • spend more time with my family
  • spend more time with the boyf
  • improve my art and illustration
  • spend some time in the sun
  • go on a picnic
  • reconnect with old friends
  • fill my blog with illustrations I can be proud of
  • worry less
  • host a bbq in our garden
  • take more photos
  • get out and meet new people
  • start looking for a house to buy with the boyf
  • go on a long walk in the countryside
  • ensure I’m in a job I love
  • start letting the cat out at night
  • send friends and family postcards, just because
  • pay more love and attention to the degus
  • spend a day at the beach
  • put one of my paintings on the wall
  • sing Christmas songs all through December
  • create an iPad case from one of my paintings
  • kiss the boyf at midnight on new years eve
  • visit somewhere I’ve never been before
  • go on a bike ride
  • make a snowman
  • paint a tote bag
  • focus more on today rather than tomorrow

Rather than an illustration to celebrate my year, I thought a little montage of pics would be best! (I realise this is cheating my 52 project slightly, but it’s my birthday, so I can break the rules!)

It’s a year for big dreams and little goals. What are you hoping for this year?
