I like dreaming up new possibilities. I like creating goals to go after.
But most of all I adore growing. So each year I do what people usually do on New Years Day on my birthday.
I make “resolutions” of sorts. I create a list of things I would like to accomplish or sew seeds into.
(Here is my list of 25 things to do before turning 26:)
1: Try a Bloody Mary.
2: Read a book a month. Any suggestions? I have 12 spots!
3: Organize all collage papers. WISH me luck!
4: Collaborate with 6 artists. Any takers?! :)
5: Travel to Colorado. BE in AWE of it’s majesty.
6: Snowboard or Ski with my love.
7: Travel to Bali. (Hold a monkey, explore it’s temples and feast on all the richness it’s markets have…)
8: Can my own food. Seriously why haven’t I?
9: Take my love to New York City. (Eat pretzels, ride the subways and hold each others hands A LOT.)
10: Write my dearest Katariina every month.
11: Finish all E-courses I have began. I can’t wait to dig into Alena Hennessy’s “Year of Painting.” And Pixie Campbells “Woman is a river.”
12: Write an article about depression.
13: Take a course by: Isabel Faith Ibbott. (If you don’t know who she is, you should. A goddess of writing!)
14: Paint/Collage a large piece of art to hang in my new home with my love.
15: Lead 3 art work shops locally. (Inquire, I am dreaming up yummy connecting arty-ness. With tea and green houses and writing, it will be good.)
16: Water Nymph Series. (A chance to shine and feel radiant. A place to be truly seen.)
17: Outline “HOWL”. Stay posted I CANNOT wait until this baby is ready to come into the world!
18: BEgin tea rituals again. Idea from Lindsay Luna. Agony of Leaves was a very inspiring and healing journey for me and I intend to begin again.
19: (This one is a secrete, I will share when it is time.)
20: Pursue publications.
21: Photograph some intimate shoots. Woman SHOULD feel sexy and seen. Get your lingerie ready or come without it. (Email me if your interested!)
22: Create a home with intention and attention. Photo’s to be shared when the home arrives to us!
23: ACTUALLY, FINALLY begin yoga. It has been calling me for what seems like forever. It is time to learn flexibility and breath through life.

25: Wed to my love on a autumn day. Fincham.
