What's Going On in Sassy's Studio?

Well it's been an odd beginning to this new year. Started it off right with a newly cleaned studio that I really haven't used cause I don't want to clutter it up again! Silly I know! And then I got sick.

Then I thought about my goals or resolutions for this year. But I'm finding it very difficult to get excited and moving on anything. So perhaps intentions are the better way to go. Intentions seem less formal and serious. If I don't actually do them them no regrets, right? 

There are several things I intend to do and these are in no particular order.

1. Blog more consistently. More likes of others work and tutorials.
     Post on all 3 of my blogs!

2. Send some of my plush creations to Stuffed Magazine for
     consideration to be published in the Summer edition.
     (this is a big one and I'm already waffling on this so we'll see)

3. Spend more time and energy on my stationery business and
     make some hard decisions about keeping it or not or going
     in a new direction.

4. Take my plush and doll making more seriously and really
     put effort into it.

5. Explore new mediums.

As a Pieces I'll change my mind on the above list a hundred times so we'll see.

Well this month I'm doing a lot of custom stationery work. More than I thought I'd have right after the holidays. That's where most of my time has been allotted recently. I'll show the items I've done on my stationery blog soon. Need to list all my Valentine items on Zibbet asap.
On the etsy side I'm working on a PDF Paper Toy of the TARDIS for those Dr. Who fans. Almost done. And will open listings for more Plush TARDIS soon.

I've been working on a new doll body design. Looking for a way to do more natural boobs and hands with fingers.
I guess I should add a 6. to my list about completing unfinished work. All of these are WIP. Still have the other 5 Alice in Wonderland plush designs to finish too! Sigh!

I have lots of Valentine type owls, penguins and etc in my sketchbook that I HOPE to do. There is also a Leprechaun plush doll that wants to be made plus I need to make a door prize for the One World One Heart Blog hop that starts at the end of this month.

So much to do and so little time! Is your January as wild as mine?

I'll make a deal with you...if you send yours to Stuffed, I'll send something to either ADQ or Somerset Studio (depending on the piece I choose, obviously! HA!) You SO should submit!

I AGREE! SEND TO STUFFED!

I made myself a big list of goals but some are definitely a higher priority than others. So I will focus on those first and not feel bad if I don't reach them all!
Pick what's REALLY important to you in your HEART and do that first! Good Luck!

That's quite a list! Good luck with accomplishing them. My January is to get all this unpacking done from my move so I can focus on my shops. My shop misses me and I can tell. So yea, we're on one wild ride together!

Love it! You are ahead of the game by writing down your list - it's so much more likely to happen! And yes, do send pieces to Stuffed - your work definitely deserves a wider audience!
