Create Your Incredible Year

January 2nd, 2013, Comments (10)

For the last 4 years, I've worked with Leonie's beautiful Workbook and Planner which does an amazing job of helping you wrap up the year that's ended and plan for the next year.

What I especially love is how she gently, but firmly helps you to not only define your goals for the year, but then also break them down into actionable steps. I think that's where we lose a lot our stamina when we create resolutions. We say we want to lose weight, create more art, send out that book proposal, or go to Italy, and then it doesn't quite come together. A lot of it is because we don't know where to begin, the task of losing weight or making more art is too big and overwhelming, we haven't broken it down into smaller, doable steps with a date to complete each of these mini-steps.

Above are a sampling of pages I've completed in the workbook so far, a lovely New Year's Eve activity. I still have more to play with. So far, I especially loved filling out the gratitude page as I worked through wrapping up my 2012. Still have more to add, but it was great to appreciate all the wonderful things I have to feel grateful for right now. And in these winter months, I also enjoyed thinking of some things I want to do to make my living space more wonderful. I'm still working out what my big goals for the year are. I have a few, some that are simple, some a little scary. But a little scary is a good thing when it comes to big dreams!

If you're looking for some assistance in getting your big dreams in motion, Leonie is a powerful resource for making things happen (she's a master at making things happen fast!) and her 2013 Create Your Incredible Year Workbook and Planner is a great place to start.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and yours!! I wish you a magical 2013 filled with creative goodness.

I have some things to share with you over the next couple days. Perhaps, they will lead you on an internet journey that will inspire you!

First, my piece, Creating a Forest of Her Own was featured in the latest issue of Sprout, a beautiful online magazine. And next month, I'll be featured in an interview!

Ananda gave me the great honor of including me in her Digital Sisterhood Top 100! This is a list of women who according to Ananda are rocking the web and the world. What a great list of women to check out!

Earlier in the year, I was asked to join a board on pinterest for artists and mothers, called the Artist Motherboard. It's become a beautiful place to seek out inspiration from artists who are also moms! Here's a little more about the board (and how you can join it!), which was created by Lisa Myers Bulmash, about to have her first solo show. Congrats, Lisa! 

Tomorrow, I'll be sharing some images from my work in Leonie Dawson's 2013 Planner and Workbook. Always a juicy way to start dreaming up what's to come in the New Year!
