2014, the year of MORE.
The year of more responsibility. More deadlines. More challenges. More students.
I taught more classes and typed more words on more papers than ever before. I traveled more, back and forth to school four days a week. And, a lovely, life-changing trip to Las Vegas (more on that later). More money in, much more money going out.
I also beaded more. And felted more. Lots more. Jaynee and I supplied five art shows, two private shows, and one major Christmas show. Lots more jewelry making!
For 2015, I'm focusing on plenty. Plenty of time to research and write my dissertation. Plenty of time to enjoy making art, playing with new mediums, refining old ones. Plenty of beads, plenty of felt, plenty of fabric to play with. Plenty of time to spend with family and friends, new and old.
Mostly, I wish all of you plenty. And the happiest of New Year's.
