One of my goals for 2010 is to really hone in on my ideas and expand them to be the best they can possibly be. In 2009 I would take a design and run with it. Create a couple of cards, and move on. Mainly because I would have so many ideas swimming in my head I just had to get them on paper.
This year, though, I'd like to really nurture my ideas. My very first idea of 2010 was to create some items inspired by energy. You'll notice some of my new images on my blog and in my shop are chock full of color and energetic lines. This is just the beginning of my energy line of paper goodies. Now I am really allowing myself to wrap my head around the true idea I want to convey and the feelings I want the recipient to have as they pull the card out of the envelope. I'd also like to expand the line to other products (think: journals, to do lists, gift tags, gift items, etc.). I've also been playing with the idea of having a variety of "energetic" items that aren't necessarily matchy, but that coordinate. Because, really, energy is not constant. It has ups and downs and peaks and valleys.
I'm really excited to work on this line, and once it is completed to move onto the next line that comes to mind, in a similar fashion.
Here is a small glimpse at a section of the inspiration board I have been using to create my ELECTRIC ENERGY line.
I truly hope you are as excited to see this line as I am to work on it! I hope to have the line completed by the end of January. Hmm...am I sensing a giveaway??
