Talking 'bout a Resolution...

As the end of this year approaches I am starting to think about new years resolutions, my list has started the same way it does each year with resolutions that I regularly make and break - losing weight, drinking less, changing jobs, pushing myself to do more exciting/scary things ... but spurred on by ideas like craft 365 challenges etc my main resolution for 2009 is going to be to design a surface pattern each day for the whole of 2009  - thats quite a challenge and one I may not be able to keep but one I know I will enjoy - not like trying to make myself go jogging in the cold rain before work! ( I know I have seen a similar idea on another blog a while back where a very talented designer showcased a design a day that she had done with different themes for each month - but I cannot for the life of me find it at the moment - if you know the one I'm talking about, please let me know and i will add a link!) 

Surface pattern is a form of design I adore and would one day like to make my career, although i think a lot of practice and improvement is required before i can reach that goal!

What are your New Year's resolutions for 2009?

What a great idea.
I love these designs, especially the Trees!

My resolution is to craft something at least once a week. A mean feat, considering how distracted I always get.

Good luck in your venture, I hope it works out well for you, i'm sure it will judging on your wonderful designs!
Merry Christmas! Louise

Thanks for your kind comments - I'm planning to use anything I can get my hands on and hopefully improve my very basic illustrator and photoshop skills - unfortunately Im not keeping to my resolution as there isnt enough hours in the day - I'll have to make up for it this weekend instead!
