So it all go for me and I love it. Being creative on a daily basis is now part of my life, I feel invigorated and excited about this year. I have the wonderful support from friends and family and my fellow pattern makes from around the world, the online groups I am with are fantastic, we help and support and share our knowledge and ideas, in a positive way. 🙂

I have set myself a few personal goals with my drawing challenge, and from my drawings I will be creating patterns on a monthly basis,  drawing things I don’t normally do and doing it every day.

Well that’s a roundup of my first week. I love to draw and I know that practice is the key, the more you do it the better you get,and for me it makes me happy. I have a few other resolutions which so far are going well.

1. Drink warm lemon first thing.

2. Meditate for 10 mins or more a day

3. Be more mindful of what I eat

4. I am not drinking alcohol for January, but truthfully I would like to stop all together, I day at a time 🙂

Thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoy my drawings and follow me over the year on my journey.  🙂
