Hello 2018!

I cannot believe 2017 is almost over! Time flies as always, I’ve realised it does it every year, so I won’t complain again πŸ™‚ It’s been a hard, but at the same time very good year. Looking back I can say I got stronger and have learned a lot this year. Dear 2017, thank you for everything πŸ™‚

Of course, i have goals for 2018, but.. When visiting home, with all the coffee’s and tea’s with friends and family I have surprisingly little time for blogging and art, have no idea how it happens, hehe)

So, as the time is super-precious, I’ll try to be clear and cut it short.

 

In 2018 I want:

β™₯ To be more professional about Legulie and develop my “business model”, figure how I can make my hobby work better for me

β™₯ To learn more about internet marketing and graphic design

β™₯ To grow my audience on Instagram and Facebook page (absolute numbers are a commercial secret, hehe)

β™₯ To explore printing opportunities (and I’ve already started πŸ™‚

β™₯ Exhibit at least once

β™₯ To develop Legulie branded products. *Right now I have postcards and stickers (envelopes with stickers on) in mind and even already talked to someone who definitely can make it happen, the remaining problem is logistics, but I think I’ll figure it out

β™₯ Alongside “packaging”, I’d like to explore stationary goods opportunities, like notebooks/sketchbooks with my art on the cover and so on (don’t think I should share all my plans right now :D)

β™₯ Keep practicing and create beautiful watercolours

β™₯ Improve my digital drawing skills and use more of it in my full-time job

β™₯ Get better at planning. I realized, it gives me peace of mind, having things planned and “knowing” what is going to happen (I mean bigger events, like scheduling trips, making important decisions). It considerably reduces the stress level for me.Β  I think planning and taking decisions go very close together and I want to be better at both

β™₯ To be more efficient and waste less time browsing

β™₯ Travel and get inspired

β™₯ Last but not least, I want to eat healthier and do sports regularly, be more organized and clear about my wants and needs and be honest with myself. AmenΒ πŸ˜€

 

Happy new year, everyone!
