I didn’t really make many resolutions in 2014, I did however choose to try and add a little creative variety into my life…. My goals were simple and allowed me to still have one of my busiest years ever!
The first was to read as much as I could…. To try for at least 1 book a month….Obviously this relation varies highly on what I was doing but I feel I made a nice dent and added a few more novels to my bookshelf.
Incase you’re interested here’s what I read in 2014 (a varied choice I think you’ll agree!)
In my shoes
A short history of tractors in Ukraine
Alice in wonderland
Awakening Sleeping Beauty
50 shades of grey
50 shades darker
50 shades free
How to fall in love
Life after life
13 reasons why
My bookie wook
The fault in our stars
A discovery of witches
Shadow of night
So there you have it… I adore reading and much prefer spending an hour lost in a book then online/infront of the sofa…. Maybe I’ll continue this resolution…. Maxwell did after all buy me a beautiful 70’s edition of the hobbit for Christmas!!
The second thing I challenged myself to do in 2014 was to draw creatively each week influenced by a very different style or artist to me. I was to do 1 drawing per week of the year, they were only quick sketches most of the time (something which has inspired a 2015 resolution – more on that later) but I did it…. Lots of the ones I really like are the delicate detailed studies which I hope will transfer into my new creative work in 2015.
Some are rubbish and I debated sharing them as the point was to draw without pride and fear of others opinions… But I though what the heck…. So if you’re interested again… Here’s what I’ve been doodling… Thank you to all the amazing art and artists who inspired me….
So there we go… I’ve got a few things planned for 2015… I’ll do another post on that later…. What about you? Please feel free to link to your resolution blogs!!
Finally Happy new year to all my followers… Thank you for following my journey… It means a lot! Ami x
