Hello there my creative friends it’s been a while! I hope you’re all well and are as creative as ever. Today I wanted to share a wheekly exciting update and some inky advice with you aspiring creatives.
Update one: I’ve started a little inky project and blog called the Guineapig wheekly . It’s an illustrated small pet blog and a little side to this inky business I’m passionate about. I blog 8 times a month about lots of different things from pet advice to tutorials and more.
My point I wanted to make with all of you is I found a way to combine two passions together and really connect with over 3000 people through it and my artwork.
I even created a little wheekly shop and product line of greetings cards, notebooks, decal stickers and a colouring book to boot.
By doing this I realised where I felt a little lost before in my creative business and maybe you feel the same? I was trying to promote myself and my artwork, but I didn’t realise that sharing a love with others and joining that with your creative passion could really connect with so many people.
Also if somethings not working don’t be afraid to try something new. Be brave my creative friends and if you have two passions why not put them together?
So I’ve noticed many of my favourite youtubers are doing the “end of year tag” and to round-up 2013 and my thoughts I thought I would make a blog version myself 🙂 and then at the end tag one of my blogging friends to make their own to!
What’s the best thing that happened this year?
There have been so many good things that have happened this year that I’ve taken for granted as being big achievements for me. I’ve done things that I was anxious about because I wasn’t sure they would work out but I surprised myself and achieved what I set out to and proved my inner wuss wrong. A few of the things I’ve achieved in 2013:
- Graduated from university
- Ventured onto a post-graduate business course
- Started up my business / career
- Went traveling on my own
- Discovered my true love of blogging 🙂
What’s the worst thing to happen this year ?
With the good comes the not so good like accidentally reversing my car into a small wall but to be honest this year hasn’t been that bad and for that I’m grateful. I think that everyone deserves a bit of luck in their lives and I’m happy that 2013 has been a good year for me and 2014 will also have lots of good things in store.
What’s your aim for the new year?
I think for the new year I want to “Just say yes” to more opportunities, in the past I’ve said no to things in life because of the fact of being scared but realise its to easy to be scared and let that feeling stop you from doing things that might not actually be that bad. So firstly to say yes more , secondly to stay healthy and be happy and lastly to do YouTube videos . I’m gonna do a video this week and then I shall post the link to my latest piece here on my blog for you all to take a look at.
Thank you so much for taking a peek at my post :), I’d like to tag Jen over at markersµns to do this tag over at her blog!
