Well, would you believe it’s the end of the year already…!

2011 just flew, and I’m extremely lucky to say that it was one of my best, artistically speaking…! Every year I am reminded by Alyson B. Stanfield, (a great coach and mentor for artists) to do something that has become an end-of-the-year ritual:

To Celebrate My Accomplishments.

Why? Because it’s so easy to think of the things I didn’t get done..! And to write this list reminds me that I did more then I thought, it’s a great boost to end the year and look forward to the next one.

So, here they are…!
In 2011, I :

-created about 40 paintings,

-sold around 70 paintings,

-added close to 200 people to my mailing list,

-reached the 1000 fans on Facebook,

-gained over 300 new followers on Twitter,

-participated in 3 craft fairs to sell my jewellery,

-took part (successfully!)in Art Fair 2011 in the RDS, Dublin,

-appeared in local and national newspapers,
