It’s funny because 3 of our “top 5 blog posts of 2014” are actually posts from 2013. These posts are favorites by many of our followers on Pinterest, they get pinned all the time. One thing this roundup made me realize is we need to get back to doing interviews. I loved interviewing creative people to learn more about what they do and how they do it. Look forward to more of that this year!
2014 flew by fast, way too fast. We had so many resolutions that we wanted to keep for ourselves to help us grow personally and as a business. I guess where we failed was making resolutions, instead we should have made goals. No one really follows through with their resolutions, they last for a month or two then you go back to your old habits like eating too much candy or not going to the gym enough.
Goals are something you can set your mind to, something you can keep your eye on that helps get you to the finish line. For me it was wanting to be more creative, give back to the community, continue education and be more positive. Those sound pretty easy in the grand scheme of things, but as usual life gets in the way and makes it harder to finish one thing. I had my daughter in July of this year and it changed my life totally for the better. It makes it harder to do work but it’s worth taking some time out to play with her and make her laugh and smile.
On Christmas day she was 5 months old, and it’s getting easier since she sleeps longer and eats baby food instead of milk all day. My husband helps out a lot so I have to be thankful for that. Right now he’s trying to have her sneak up on me while I’m writing this blog post. I’m glad to have a great partner in crime, and a beautiful daughter to shake things up a bit.
This year for 2015 I’m aiming to be a lot more organized when it comes to scheduling blog posts, handling social media posts and utilizing my time more proficiently. If I had time in between design projects to take an online design class, that would be awesome. If I don’t have time for that maybe I can read a business book or two, we’ll see. I love doing Interior Design work but I’d love to focus more on the textile design side of our business, learn more about fabric trends and things of that sort.
Let us know what resolutions you didn’t follow through with (so we don’t feel like failures alone) and we also want to hear what great big goals you plan to work towards this year!
