I am doing the One World~One Heart giveaway again this year. If you click on the picture above you can learn more about the event. Last year was my first year to join and it was a very wonderful experience. My piece was even featured in Artful Blogging magazine about the event. I made many many new blog friends and it opened my world up to new possibilities & new beginnings. I am a little late starting but as they say...better late than never.

dis·cover (di skuv′ər)

2. to find out; learn of the existence of; realize
3. to be the first nonnative person to find, come to, or see (a continent, river, etc.)

I like this word. Discover...it can be used in all parts of my life. In love, in creating, at home, at work or about myself. That is what this year will be about...discovering....

But as I was taking pictures in the great white north, I started to think about my goals for the coming year and then I started to think about the beginning of last year and how far I have come, where I have been, and where I thought I was going. Some of my goals I achieved, some I exceeded, and some I failed miserably. You can plan and plan and then life throws you a curve ball and all those plans you had go straight to the garbage can. Sometimes we don't understand why or will we ever, but I for one believe that everything happens for a reason. I for one am happier at the end of this year than I was at the beginning, even though in the middle of it...my marriage of 16 years ended... I have found a love that is so wonderful that I sometimes think this can't be real. Someone who loves me just the way I am.
This next year I believe will be even better than this one. I have much to look forward to. My teaching at Art & Soul in May, My daughter graduating from High School in June and many trips with the love of my life. Some of my goals for this year are:
1. Get published in Somerset Studio. That means I have to create mixed media art more and less jewelry.
2. Purge some of my art supplies! I have too much stuff!
3. Blog more often than the last half of this year...maybe even get published in Artful Blogging. How cool would that be?
I have other goals but I will not list them for the world to see as I have learned my lesson on sharing everything....sometimes it can bite you in the ass!
Here's to a fresh start and I am gonna get back on the swing and see how high I can go!
