I have to two creative goals for 2013… STRENGTH ~ to step outside my comfort zone and do mixed media art, something that I have wanted to do; but never was able to “Just Do It” and ENCOURAGE ~ others to express their true feelings through art journaling. I am new to it myself, but feel it should be a natural thing. It is the one place that you should be able to be honest and true, without judgement. So far so good… learning is always a creative goal, so I am so happy to be joining all of you for the first time here at Jump Start!!! Thank You for allowing me to be a part of the experience!!!

My journey in 2013 will continue to be, to push forward and leave my friend behind, and to utilize this fabulous “jumpstart program.

  44. Gerd Andersson says:

    This year, I’m going to jump into the scrapbooking and mixed media world to learn as much as possible. And when I feel ready, it’s time to start an album about my dear daughter’s wedding. Prima products will certainly be suitable for my project!

I went to my local stamp store and bought a bunch of prima’s and other stuff yesterday to use as embellishments in my pages. Blessings! Lela

    well if you would have asked me before the jumpstart what my goals were it was simple. scrap more. Now as I watch these amazing videos it is to try new things! Thank you so much for this change to win!

  50. Hi there. My overall goal this year is to make the most of the things I have in my stash; to use some of the tools and products that I’ve never used. Also this will include having to spend my money very wisely on value for money products that are versatile and have more than one use… I am on a very limited budget so I can’t afford to buy things just to put in drawers or on shelves. My creative goal this year is to do more stuff just for the pure enjoyment of it, and to make some pieces that I can make into art for my home and enjoy what I’ve done, rather than doing stuff that I give away all the time. This will include looking at the things I have in different ways, and that’s why this feature is proving to be brilliant.

  51. bjaneglas says:

    My creative goals for 2013 are to 1) journal &/or collage every week, even if for a short time; and 2) pick six unfinished projects in my stash and finish them!

  55. My goal this year is to have one of my projects published.
