HELLO & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hope you had a fabulous New Year’s Eve celebration and now ready to face 2015 and everything it has to offer.
As New Year’s traditions go I’m sure quite a few of you have made resolutions or have goals you would like to achieve this year. Yes? No? Did you make any last year? And how many of your targets did you hit or miss? I know I definitely missed my targets with regards to this blog. If blogs could talk I bet mine would give me a good earful about how neglected it must have felt in 2014.
So this year I’ve devised a plan of action to keep me productive on this blog. I actually didn’t have a set plan last year so I’m hoping that since I’ve thought this through it will work out (how well will it work out? I guess I’ll find out in the implementation) . So part of my plan is to create a calendar of motivational quotes. I’m not a big fan of calendars, which could be why I was not that organised last year, so I’m hoping to kill like 3 birds with this stone….talk about ambitious right.
Welcome to my very first blog post EVER!! Over the next few months I shall be sharing with you my mini obsession with paper. Yes PAPER! It might be kind of odd for an African living in Africa to be obsessed with such but hey, I love it and I’m awed by the wonderful things that can be crafted out of it and daydream about making stuff often.
The whole point of this blog is to force myself to ‘pull out my finger’ and actually DO SOMETHING about this obsession of mine. I procrastinate a lot, so hopefully by setting myself this target of completing a paper project every 2 weeks, I will be one step closer to improving my skills and maybe one day following my dreams of becoming a ‘super duper paper crafting maestro!’
I shall try my hardest to keep to my fortnightly deadlines. So please look out for my first paper project post in 2 weeks!!
In the meantime I’ll leave you with a little bit of my writing, which I’d say captures my current mindset.
Everyone has dreams
And anything can happen in your dreams
Dreams aren’t only seen when you are asleep, they are even more powerful when you’re awake.
Dreams can be scary, audacious, mind-blowing.
Dreams can also be delicate and fragile, that’s why they need to be carefully nurtured into reality.
Dreams, visions, aspirations have moved people to act, have changed nations, the world and compelled men to reach for the stars.
Where will your dreams take you?
