Inside the Studio with Creative Impressions In Clay

Welcome to Inside the Studio!

Hurray it's 2014!!
2013 felt like my life was a Push Me Pull You. We would push forward then get pulled backwards. I am so happy to be in a New Year!
2014 will be far superior to 2013.
I lost my job the last day of December and am now going through the stress of finding another job. In my head I'm screaming I don't want to work for anyone but myself again!! I need to be the only Looney Toon I'm dealing with and who appreciates what I have to offer. It's OK, if I take advantage of myself but I will give no one else the privilege to do that to me again.

I'm adjusting to being at home again. I started sketching ideas of new art to start on. Something I haven't had much time to do. The above sketch would be fish on a larger scale that could hang like a mobile and spin. I have another idea that hasn't made it to paper. Trying to think ahead and possibly sign up for more shows this year.
I will offer Free Shipping till the end of January so we can help each other out in this economy. Enter code SHIP4FREE in the shopping cart.

My Question is: 
Are you happy to be in a New Year?
I know I am!!

Leave your answer to the question in the comments 
and you could win Leaf Buttons!

Have a great day!!
Feeling Sassy as usual!

I am SO glad it's 2014! We had a very tumultuous year in 2013 too - we moved twice, and the second time was into our first house. No more apartment living! Now that that's settled down at last, I am eager to focus on my creative pursuits in 2014.

I do believe that moving forward is part of the journey of life. It allows us to start over again and again. The trick is leaving the past behind. I hope the new year brings us all much happiness and good health.

Absolutely excited about the New Year. It is a time to grow and change and experience new things.

Love you leaf buttons.

I'm new to beading and am very excited to see where it takes me in the new year.

Kristen said...

I am very excited about 2014 because I am retiring this year!! I work with 6th grade students and most don't appreciate what I have to offer so I know what you mean. I look forward to keeping up with my business and building it too!

Candy said...

I, too, am looking forward to all good things in 2014. This morning the temp is 50 degrees!! Raining, but I con't care, creative juices are flowing!

Last night I dreamed I had built a wonderful art studio in the sky just above the ocean. There were large windows looking out upon the surf and I placed my work desk in front of the window with the best view. It was delightful and I woke up so happy and eager to do something creative.

2013 was a difficult year in many ways, and a good year in others. Not a great year in terms of my beading and collage projects. So, my intention for the coming year is to enjoy the pleasures of life and create gorgeous beading and collages.

Oh yes. I love how much promise a new year brings!

Love that it's a new year. DH had a heart attack in Oct. and is now coming out of the woods. Freedom to create has returned! My muse needs resuscitation, the poor thing is squashed flat. Thanks for the chance at new beads. Heaven.

I'm always happy to be in a new year no matter the last one. (I don't remember who said it but it's definitely better than the alternative!) I always look forward to improving a skill or learning a new one. In 2014, it will be both.

Kristen (Creative Stash) said...

I always enjoy a fresh start! 2013 was full of high highs and low lows. Such a roller coaster! I am ready to start a new year with continued growth in my passions and settle into a steady rythym in my life + biz

Elizabeth said...

I'm extremely happy to be in 2014. I think this will be an adventurous year for me. Happy New Year everyone!

Elizabeth said...

I think 2014 is going to be very adventurous!

2013 was a difficult year for my hubby. He was very sick and in and out of the hospital. He is getting stronger everyday and I know 2014 is going to be much better for him!!!!

Sorry to hear that you lost your job. I am looking forward to 2014. I have made a few life changes that should make this year better.

Becky Pancake said...

I really like your fish idea.

Yes! 2013 was pretty rough, but started improving toward the end. Hoping to continue with that momentum in 2014! It's not all roses, but I'm starting this new year with more hope! Best wishes to you and the job search. Thanks for the lovely bead give-away! --Sharyl McMillian-Nelson / Sharyl's Jewelry

I am very happy for the new year! My husband and I are fixing to embark on a new journey it is thrilling to just pick up and move to a new state a whole new place with a brand new start! It's also a bit scary too but that's ok being an artist we must deal with our fears so I am ready to take this on! I love your work thanks for the chance to win !

I am really not sure if I am glad that we have moved onto 2014 as my job description has changed with the new year. I liked my job as it was and I am still not sure what my paycheck is going to look like.
