Happy New Year!

I'm making a New Year's resolution to become more organized.

My head is always full of fun ideas, silly thoughts and about a billion things I need to do. Sometimes it gets so cluttered that I can't focus on anything.
That's why I bought this magic wand to help me organize my thoughts!

Did you make any New Year's resolutions? I'd love to hear them =)

I have resolved to be more present in each moment, and to step outside my comfort zone more often. Love your blog!

Sally said...

Here are my resolutions, but I hardly ever keep them for a whole year. :P
1. Try harder in school.
2. Figure out what I'm going to do with my life.
3. Find a hobby that doesn't involve me sitting in front of my computer/TV watching movies.
4. Refrain from retail therapy.

Lizzie said...

Can I borrow it after you're done?! :)

Happy New year! I wish you all the best life can bring.

Little Miss Tiara said...

I love the shoot, geez, you're so magical! And I love that little detail alzying on the background (read: MOO) lol

I'm trying to get one of my resolution done today, and I'm nervous as hell, oh the nerves!

Have a wonderful new year we all! :D

Charmalade said...

That picture is full of whimsy and... magic! I love it!

I don't really have any resolutions, but I'm trying to keep my life in balance, all while keeping a new blog.

I hope your year is as wonderful as that picture!

kage said...

I have one: Teach myself how to use Adobe Illustrator like a pro! Then my options for designing blog banners are limitless!!

Carrie(; said...

Be a cool kid.

And the song Technologic? Yes I will memorize it. :D

Brittany said...

Love your blog, just FYI.
I did make some, as I like to call them "life changes" for this New Year!
Mainly they all boil down just embracing life, all the bumps, twists, turns, loopdy loops, and curves! It is going to be not only an exciting year but also an exciting decade!

Juanita said...

I've always been really organized so this year is all about having more FUN!

katieleigh said...

you are 10 times cooler than harry potter. my resolution; stop overthinking everything

starsandclouds said...

Apart from wanting to learn more Italian, I think my resolutions are just to be more conscious about all the beautiful things around me.

I also thought that these resolutions at Meet Me At Mikes are awesome: http://meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com/2010/01/resolution-number-nine.html?dsq=27836921#comment-27836921

And well done on the AAirlines magazine!

Betenik said...

Gets lots of lovely notebooks to help yourself plan with :) its worked for me - a visual diary. 4 days in to ny and i'm making a great start on one of my resolutions, starting my own etsy shop for jewellery charms - 1 commission already :D

one of my resolutions is directly inspired by you sunshine lady - to get back into street art. I have a plan for carboard, waterproof varnish ande velcro tape to make oard games and paper doll sets top glue up in public places like bus and train stops, so people can amuse themselves while waiting. i used to do a lot more street art :| i'd make gardens in subways, comics on the sstreet etc and i miss it.

also start my own etsy business making charms, and stress less, and travel more x

Cassidie Anne said...

my one and only resolution is to not buy any clothes.....it will probably be anything, but magical. by the way. if you haven't noticed I think you are great. my little sister saw your bubble photos and asked if we could do it. and we did and it was great. thanks.

Gretch-A-Sketch said...

Changing my focus! This year its NOT... all about ME! I am writing 365 TY cards and searching out unique ways to display random acts of kindness to fam, friends, and total strangers.

Im chucking the usual self-focused crap and looking to create a million smiles!

colormekatie said...

That's wonderful Gretch-a-sketch!

Catie said...

Cute post! My New Year's resolutions also include getting more organized. One of the ways I'm trying to do this is by always making my bed and not going to sleep with clothes, books, and random things on my floor.

Amy T Schubert said...

My resolutions will be posted in full for accountability tomorrow, but I definitely want to create some free e-books, visit Hearst Castle (in San Simeon, CA) and shop more at Farmer's Markets for in season produce. Good measurable goals like that!

jennifer said...

wow - one of mine is similar to yours...

1. continue to open my heart
2. to be more mindful (focused) on the present moment
3. to somehow be of service in india

i tend to get scattered and work on way too many little ideas and then get drained of energy...
so here's to some big focused projects in 2010 for both of us!
peace,
jennifer

Kristin said...

Organization is most def at the top of my list for the new year!

Jaeve + Things said...

Happy New Year! I'm about to publish my list, hop on over!

DJ Polaris said...

I have two-ish.
1. Start a blog to fill with cute and happy things (I was inspired by you!)
2. Learn to do 100 pushups (in a row!)

Erica said...

Happy New Year, Katie!

"Sometimes it gets so cluttered that I can't focus on anything." I recognize myself in that. My main goal for 2010 is to be more focused (preferably do one thing at a time rather than multitasking) and prioritize on what's most important in my life right now.

colormekatie said...

Awww that's lovely DJ Polaris!

Laura Trevey said...

I want one!!!

sarah nabila said...

ur sooo cool!! definitely in love with ur blog. i determined to be a workaholic in 2010=)

a splash of aurora! said...

My new years resolutions this year are...
1. To become healthier and exercise more!
2. To do more random acts of kindness such as paying for the persons drink behind me at starbucks and leaving secret notes as warm fuzzies for people to find and brighten their day. I shouldn't only be thinking of myself!
3. Finish highschool strong because art school will be so great!

Tinu.♥ said...

Can you lend it to me later? :)
My resolution is to be more responsible with my duties.

Leah said...

Numero Uno: eat healthier
Numero Doso: exercise more
Numero Treso: read all of the books on my shelf:)

I love yours. :D

Hope said...

And thanks for your bright, sunshiney blog and thoughts.

becci said...

my resolution is to get out more...embrace smiles, have fun, and spread joy. i've made an effort to smile at every person i pass in the street, and many smile back-its wonderful!
Also there is a little independent cinema not too far from me... i'm going to go more!

Leanna said...

Do more art! Leave the continent! Learn to juggle! And be happier, as much as I can. :)

Amongst some more typical things, like reducing clutter, working out more, saving some money...

practice violin, learn piano, enhance my Spanish, be able to cook efficiently ;)

I love your blog - thank you so much for continuing to post!

Drummbellina said...

Mine are:

1 - Fill myself with fruit and veg as much as possible

2 - Make fun exercise a big part of my life

Be more disciplined about many things. Vague but hopefully attainable in the details.

Anonymous said...

I bet there is a market out there for the wand.

colormekatie said...

haha!

Stevi said...

Just found your blog, it's fabulous. You are a great photographer! I wish I had a magic wand!

I have too many resolutions, I fear I may have too many to resolve this year. We'll see....

Good luck on yours!

The Kid In The Front Row said...

Nice resolution Katie but --- why put a priority on focus? Scattered creative brains and what it's all about. Stay a mess!

Katelin said...

I Absolutely love your blog! I found it on stumbleupon.com. I was really excited because my name is Katelin but my friends call me Katie :) btw i love the name of your blog its really creative. All of your projects are so fun a pretty i hope to see some of them next time im in the city. I'm also into crafts and such so thats another reason why i was really excited to find your blog. You've inspired me to go out and create something new. Thanks so much! P.s. I'm not quite the blogger yet i just started one yesterday, any tips?

Katelin said...

Oh yeah My resolution is to be more positive and relax more! and please if you get a chance check out my blog :)

Amber said...

Is your wand working? If so, then I need one that will help me with my resolution of going outside to play everyday with my two and a half year old son...even if it takes twenty minutes to be out for only two minutes in the three degree weather (today was a struggle...which is why I'm wondering if it's working and what market there is for it).

Dylana said...

Lovely blog!

Maura said...

Wow Katie! Awesome pic, but then again, what pic or project of yours isn't awesome? None! How did you make it look like everything is floating? Photoshop? My New Years Resolution is to get more active and go places I've never been to, even locally.

rebekah said...

love your site and everything you do! keep everything up in 2010 and for me in 2010 i'm (we are) going to try and get preggers

a.p.morgan said...

I have realized that my resolutions have the theme of love.
1)learn to love myself more and embrace every inch of my skin.
2)wipe all negative thoughts from my mind and love everyone, regardless.
3)pull off my wedding in june and be married to my favorite boy.
4)work on healing the broken relationship i have had with my mom for the past few years.

and then we have the odd duck resolution: go back to school to make my dreams a reality.

katrina said...

getting organized is one of my general unwritten resolutions. among other things, i'd like to read (finish what i read, especially), learn how to cook something, and wear more skirts.

iHellboy said...

My resolutions this year:
1. Make myself a better person :)
2. Prove to her how much I love her <3
3. Be the best I can be
4. Finish my school and take a next step in my future. xD

Love Your Blog Katie :) I hope you know who I am... :P

K. Trembley said...

-Find a boyfriend
-Get married
-Have some children
-Buy a house

No, I'm just kidding. I resolved to get a library card, which I have sadly neglected to do since moving to Seattle.

Lubna said...

Thank you Katie, for a great blog and wish you a joyous 2010. Yep, for the first time ever, I made new year resolutions and even blogged about them - somehow that left me feeling more accountable.

Here it is:
http://writerscyberslate.blogspot.com/2009/12/new-year-resolutions.html

One of the most important resolutions here, is to be grateful for what I have - more often.

Cheers,

Geeky Geekerson said...

I like making resolutions. I decided in December that the theme for 2010 is "just say YES".

My very long list of resolutions can be found here:

10Yen said...

I know this is an older post but I did have to comment on this. I've just stumbled upon your blog and have to say its made my day and has totally helped me to see the colorful things in life again!

anywho A creative mess is better than tidy idleness.

And your creative mess is just beautiful! As my new year resolution im actually doing quiet a few things but my main goal is to go to Finland and tell a certain man their I love him. X)

Shruti said...

This is a pretty thought!
and the picture sort of captures it well!
