2016 Goals & Aspirations

2016 Goals & Aspirations


I want to focus this year – on living my life to the fullest, being present, representing my personal brand in the best possible light. Lots of things to focus on with inevitable distractions, but here I go!


I want to make at least 10 more things to list on Etsy to have a minimum of 15 products in my shop. Obviously it'd be great to have more, but I'm just trying to keep it bite-sized in order to be able to realistically accomplish my goals this year.


I want to knit a slightly different scarf style and add it to my shop. Also, if I have extra time, I wouldn't mind trying to make a beanie.


I want to take a class/workshop/seminar for my personal and/or professional growth. This goal is already in the works as I will be attending a blog conference in a few weeks, which I am SUPER EXCITED for! Alt Winter 2016, here I come! :D Let me know if you'll be going, so I can meet you there!


I want to do at least one new lettering project a month. I'm not talking something simple like my envelope-turned-notecard series. I'm thinking something a little more extensive, though how extensive, I'm not sure yet. I'll figure that out as I go. :) I'm looking to expand my portfolio of fun-lettering projects and potentially add some of the projects I'll be doing to my shop.


I plan on participating in Hilary Rushford's Instagram Challenge every month. How often per month? Well, we'll have to wait and see. Haha.


I want to go somewhere new. This is a bit of a cheat one since I already plan on going somewhere new, but I thought I'd throw this one out here anyway. ;P I've had the travel bug for a while now. I just have to get off my butt and do it.


I want to bring back my "hopeless romantic" days. Give gifts and do things "just because."


I want to be more open to spontaneity. I have a tendency to be pretty strict with my schedule and what I want to do, so I'm going to work on being more flexible in that area. 


I want to send more encouraging notes and letters. Good, old-fashioned handwritten snail mail. Encouragement and support potentially coming your way this year! Let me know in the comment section below if you want in on this! :)

Here's to living on the Bright Side together this year! Yay 2016!
