2015 Goals and Inspiration

The new year is already 2 weeks old but now I’m really arrived in 2015.

The last week was very inspiring for me. I set some goals for the year ahead and started to work on some of them.

I wanna share my goals with you – so they become more real and I’m much more forced to achieve them 🙂

 

My goals:

– improve my

  • sewing
  • knitting
  • english (for university and (of course) this blog)
  • photography skills

– learn how to do

  • macrame
  • screen printing
  • tatting (you will see why when you read further)

– understand how it is possible to make photos (where actually a picture appeares) with my Polaroid camera

– blog regularly

– draw more often

– travel to places I haven’t visited yet and explore them with people who live there

– eat more healthy food

– make more sport (I already started making Yoga and I LOVE it!)

– pass my exams

– extend my knowledge about art, craft, education, photography, nature, geography …

– learn a new language

– start my own small business

– be thankful for everything I already have

I’m feeling very inspired at the moment. This belongs mainly to a purchase I made lately: I decided to buy the digital version of Mollie Makes Blogging. I don’t want to advertise but I just started reading it and I love it! The content is very inspiring and helpful and I’m nearly sure it will make me a better blogger – not over night but I will keep the tons of advices in mind.

To help you to be a bit more inspired I like to share some of my favourite blogs with you and I’m incredibly excited about your favourite ones – please link them in the comments!

Here is my list:

A Beautiful Mess

Attic 24

The Crafted Life

One Sheepish Girl

Messyla

Gemacht mit Liebe (german)

A Creative Being

Little Things Blogged

and of course the blogs from Etsy, DaWanda, Handmadekultur (german) and Mollie Makes.

I bought/got some other inspiring things, too. I bought two books – one is about modern art and the other about drawing and I enjoy reading them incredibly much! and I foud a nice craft book from 1971 on the flea market which explains lots of craft basics. The last thing is the most precious to me – its an doily my grandgrandma made and my grandma gave to me. The technique which was used to make it is called tatting. I love this doily so much! It’s so delicate and fucking (excuse me) beautiful – a real piece of art!!

I hope it was okay for you that I used the wor ‘inspiring’ very often 🙂

I would love it if you share blogs/things which you inspire with me!

I love to try something new!

I went to the print workshop on Wednesday and tried etching.
Therefore I prepared a few little drawings of faded tulips. It was real fun and with this technique you can produce really beautiful filigree prints – I love it!

Also habe ich mich am Mittwoch in die Druckwerkstatt begeben und mich an einer Radierung zu versuchen.
DafĂŒr habe ich kleine Zeichnungen von verwelkten Tulpen vorbereitet.
Es hat sehr großen Spaß gemacht und mit der Technik lassen sich wunderschöne filigrane Arbeiten herstellen.

Busy boredom

How is this possible? Every time I think I would have more time I don’t succeed in anything I want.
I wanted to crochet so much and to deal with so many things. But I spend
my time with thousands of other things.
Maybe it’s not to late for a good resolution: I want to succeed more!

I wish you beautiful first-snow-days!

 

Wie kommt das nur immer? In Zeiten, von denen man denkt, man hÀtte mehr Zeit, schafft man nichts von dem was man sich vorgenommen hat.
Ich wollte so viel hÀkeln und mich mit so vielen Sachen beschÀftigen, doch ich verbringe meine Zeit mit tausend anderen Dingen.
Vielleicht ist es noch nicht zu spĂ€t fĂŒr einen guten Vorsatz: ich möchte mehr Dinge schaffen! Und das darf auch zweideutig gesehen werden!

Schöne erste Schneetage!
