What Does YOUR New Year Look Like?

I have many new ideas and plans for this year. Too many to list all in one post. So this is the start of a series of posts on ideas, plans, and dreams for 2016.

What is new for this New Year? -JanetCrosby.com

My first idea involves viewers of this site and my Facebook page. And that is to… share your art! I can already hear people say “but I am not artistic” but that isn’t going to stop me with this idea. 🙂

Two of my closest friends gave me Believe pop-open cards. They are mini on-demand little fortune messages. This is the first one I opened as I started out this year:

The journal was also part of this gift, and plays into my word for 2016: re-write. More on that in a future post.

I firmly believe that everyone has creative talent. Maybe your talent is a visual one such as drawing, painting, computer graphics, or mixed media. Maybe you are a musician (I am envious of you), a baker, a cook, a teacher, woodworker, welder, writer… you get the idea.

I believe it, and now I want to see your talents. 😀

I’ll start

I decided to mix it up. Revisit some ‘old’ art supplies and create something new. I started with wax seals. Note all of the matches in this photo. Lots of melting!

Then I added in ink stamps and ink pens and created little cards and wishes.

Someday you may see one, tucked in an order from my shop or in the mail.
