2012 Year In Review and Looking Forward – Happy New Year!


Happy New Year 2013! 
Welcome to CCreech Studio’s 2012 Year in Review and Looking Forward to 2013
I have seen similar posts on other artist’s sites and thought this would be a great way to start the new year. 2012 was a busy year, creatively, and this is a great way to recall just how much was accomplished and take a look forward to what I hope to pursue in the coming year. So, let’s take a look!

2012 Year In Review
  1. I opened my Etsy shop almost one year ago, in January 2012
  • Advertised in a national magazine, FOLKMagazine.
  • Participated in three, in-person booth craft/gift shows 
  • Consignment opportunities:
    1. I am fortunate to have items from my shop on consignment at two local shops/galleries:
  • My first exhibit!
  • Drawing projects
  • Donated a bracelet for the 8th Annual Circle of Art benefit for Food Gatherers, a local food bank.
  • Donated a hand-bound journal to the American Society of Botanical Artists annual auction.
  • The indiexhibit
  • 2013 Goals
    1. Keep creating!
    2. Continue to add to the Etsy shop
  • Participate in 1-2 booth shows
  • Continue my partnership with FOLKMagazine. for 3 of the 6 issues this year:
  • Continue consignment opportunities.
  • Create wholesale price sheet and look into wholesale opportunities.
  • Continue participating in The indiexhibit events as opportunities arise. It is a fun way to get a different angle of exposure and have my creations in different venues.
  • Participate in the 9th Annual Circle of Art benefit.
  • Draw more! I had some commissions, but did not really do much sketching or drawing last year. This year I *will* do more! 🙂
  • Seek out other exhibit opportunities.
  • Attend the American Society of Botanical Artists conference in Pittsburgh in the fall.
  • So there it is! I am sure I will add to this list as the year goes on, but this certainly looks like a great start!

    Do you have any creative goals for the coming new year? I’d love to hear about them.
