Project 2014, Oh My! Handmade

Happy, happy, happy 2014 to our wonderful creative community of goodness! This month on OMHG we are celebrating the fresh start of the new year by creating and sharing our project plans for choosing our own adventures in 2014. For the month of January join us as we post projects of all sizes that we want to take steps toward, along with ideas, inspiration, support, and resources for following through on our plans.

To get us started here is a little printable inspiration for our workspaces to encourage us to be foolish and think big (but remember we can always start small!). Click here or the image below to download the PDF!

I hope our Project 2014 theme inspires us all to get creative and gets the ball rolling for fun collaborative projects this year! This is a great month to plan a project/group challenge like a daily doodle or weekly photo, think up a strategy for starting your own Success Squad, reaching out and creating a product collaboration, or planning a crafty meet up or an annual event…just to name a few. I’m so excited to hear about and support your projects in the new year!

So tell us:

    2014 is set to be a very big year for me as I’ve left the day job (despite not making any money from my creative pursuits at present!). The primary aim of this is to spend more, better quality time with my son and improve our family’s lifestyle (with more time but a lot less money!).
    I have big plans for Mrs M though, to:
    - turn my fabric design work into a viable small business;
    - improve my blog and increase readership and engagement; and
    - exhibit my artwork more widely.
    I’m looking forward to seeing everyone’s (undoubtedly bigger and better!) projects for the year!

      Happy New Year Kate!! Leaving your day job for spending more time with your son and family while working on your small business is a wonderful project to dedicate your year to. There might be bigger goals but I doubt there are better ones :) I’ll be cheering you on every step of the way!
