Today I am 23!
I've learned that I am a woman of goals, so I decided to set some for this new year of mine.
- Compile a collection of short stories and poems
- Get a tattoo
Allow myself love, romance Make it to 100 entries of Tangible Ingredients, and then keep going
- Complete a sprint triathlon
Leave the country (in a big way)
- Do another cycling trip
- Successfully cook fish
- Submit a short story somewhere
Get very fit again
- Pay off a sizable chunk of my student loans
- Learn some new photographic techniques
Graduate from college
- Write a song and sing it
Let go of some ghosts Get a new computer Delegate more time for creative endeavors
- Learn a song on the harmonica
- Have my photographs on display somewhere
Make some wonderful new friends
- Sew myself a purse
- Eat less cheese
Open an Etsy shop
Yes, that is the project I have been working on. And at 12:30am, on my 23rd birthday, I've finished. I do apologize if this was a rather predictable, or perhaps cliche project, but it started as a desire - no - a need - to create things, and then it just turned into this. It's made me endlessly happy and has stretched me in so many ways. As a student with many loans, I long for affordable art, so the prices are with fellow students in mind.

Also, since all of you have just been so wonderful to me (your thoughtful comments mean oh-so-much), I decided to celebrate with a giveaway.
I'm giving away a set of 4 Sedimentary Layer postcards... 2 different prints of original watercolors, with 2 postcards of each. This is an item featured on my Etsy, so click on the picture to find out more details.
