Is it just me, or has 2015 been insane?? I feel like I’ve had a lifetime of stress, drama, and negativity all wrapped into a 365 day package. It’s time for a change, and I think 2016 is going to be a year of changes for me.
In January, I’m going into my last semester of school. I love school. I love learning. If I had my way, I’d just be a career student (maybe minus some of the workload). But we’re wrapping it up, and I’m terrified of what comes next!
Mainly because…I have no idea.
In a week, I’ll be starting my new internship with Habitat for Humanity. I’m excited and nervous- I have such high hopes for it!
I graduate in May and after that, things become questionable…I have a few ideas of paths I want to pursue, but I think I’ll keep those close to my vest for now 🙂 (Stay tuned!)
What I know for sure: I probably will not be staying where I’m at. The truth is, the opportunities in my area are limited (at least for what I want out of life). So a move is almost certainly imminent!
I’ve been in the process of re-inventing Handicraft and Whimsy, moving it back to the direction I originally imagined for it. I think when I started my adventure into making crafting a business, I had a short-term goal to get my work out there via the online marketplace. And because small items are easier and more realistic for shipping, I focused on a very specific direction.
Now I want to focus back on what my original vision was- refurbishing and re-imagining pieces. I’m still working out the logistics, but it’s so much truer to my vision for H&W!
I’m also having fun with woodcraft.
There’s just something really fun and fulfilling about power tools, sanding blocks, and paint and stain on your hands, ya know?
I also have a plan to expand my woodcraft skills and play with my power tools more (We’ll see how that goes…).
One thing is for sure- I want to be open to possibilities in 2016! It’s going to be a crazy, crazy ride, and I’m
terrified excited to see how it goes!
What’s in store for your 2016? Is it a year of changes for you too?
