Our Creative Goals for the New Year

A few days ago, I shared this post regarding my goals for the new year. Today, I thought I might share some of my creative goals for the new year. It seemed a good place to start. After all, the creative side of things is my favorite part! 

This year, one of my main endeavors will be to live more intentionally. Perhaps this is more of an attitude than a goal. What I mean is this: I want to live each day with intention. To be more mindful of and purposeful with my time, to use it wisely and well. Obviously, every day will have some spontaneity in it, but I do want to be less wasteful. Not just wasting time scrolling mindlessly on my phone, for example.

I hope to apply this intention to my creative work as well. This year, I'd like to be more focused with my creative projects, specifically my Etsy shop. Here are a few of my creative goals, for the year

1. to work on my Etsy shop images: better lighting and photography

2. to utilize better shop strategies such as promoted listings, coupon codes, and giveaways. 
I know that I haven't used all this tools as much as I could have in the past, but I'm working toward utilizing more in the coming months. 

3. to grow the shop's social media following (of course-- isn't that always the case?)
I recently employed some of Hilary Rushford's strategies for growing your Instagram following and saw my followers increase by 100+. I defintely plan to continue using her tips and highly recommend her free classes! 

4. to start marketing my murals and hopefully get a few clients
See my Birch Tree Statement Wall in this post. It was one of my most popular posts in 2015 and I hope to complete more like it! 

5. to work on my photography skills and eventually begin offering photography sessions. 

What are some of your creative goals for the new year?
