Happy New Year!

I wish all of you and your loved ones a fantastic new year. Let's make it an awesome year, filled with love, fun, laughter and beautiful moments abound.

As you probably haven't noticed I haven't been blogging for a week. The reason? I needed time to recover and sleep and finishing up and throwing out and reminisce over and plan for and just "be" in general. So the last week was still quite full with stuff to do and I didn't get it all done, but that's just fine with me, I'll do the stuff in the upcoming weeks.

Epiphanies occured more then once last week. The first I had at 0:15 AM in the tram home from work last Tuesday. Wonderful isn't it? Nothing like a tram ride at midnight for finding about more about oneself. What it was? I am now ready to finally move from being an observer to being a doer/maker/creator. I think I have been an observer for most of my life and while I knew for quite a while that I had to take things into my own hands, I wasn't ready to make the change just then. Now I am.

I'm actually moving my own life into a direction that I want. I think the reason why I was an observer for so long, was that I didn't know what I wanted. But last year I've finally have come to terms with myself and have developed my very own set of goals, I've even written them down. And the funny thing is, having goals makes everything else quite easy! Suddenly I'm much more focused with everything. I just love it.

So as one of my goals is to develop my artwork and most importantly drawing skills (I've tried to draw Alice's Cheshire Cat last week. Tim Burton would probably have a heartattack seeing this awful mess I drew!) I have come up with an art project for 2012: The SVA - 366 - Postcard - Project. Now the idea is more or less stolen from other people around the world, such as Mike Winkelman, also known as Beeple.He's been doing such a thing now for more than 1700 consecutive days. Which is amazing. So in my case this means I will draw (at least) one postcard per day and I will post all of them on the San's Visual Art-366-Blog. We'll see how this works out.*

Another realization of this week was that I actually have fully transitioned from tomboy to woman this last year. Meaning I just feel weird wearing hooded sweaters and badly or non-fitting clothes. This is HUGE, at least for me. During the last weeks I had to wear wide old jeans and hooded sweaters for work. I'm sooo glad this is over and I'm back to my now normal clothes. The move from tomboy-ish attire to womanly clothing took me almost three years.

There is more to come, but the year is long and so I leave you to your hopefully not too bad hangover from your New Year's Eve party.


* I have my doubts that I will actually pull through, but who knows? I just might have changed soo much, that I actually might end up really drawing a card every day of this year.


  1. I'm so excited for you - reading about the creative turn you are making in your life. It's such an interesting realisation: the difference between being an 'observer' and a 'do-er'. I wish you an intensely fulfilling year of discovery.

  2. Thank you. Best wishes in 2012, San.
