Our New Years Resolutions – Natalie Smith

Natalie Smith

“I haven’t really got any specific New Years resolutions. I think the most important one for me for this year is to develop a new collection focusing on introducing a new material. The second one is to find a space to put together an exhibition for ‘Schmuck’ in  Munich for 2014.”

Our New Years Resolutions – Grace Page

Dr Grace Miracle Cures

My plans are:

1) To complete my first ever self-employed tax return  – on time and correctly (fingers crossed)!

2) To rehaul my website – I set it up when I was a student and I’d like to give it a makeover to reflect where I’m at with my jewellery now.

3) To get a shop on my website – so people can buy their Miracle Cures online.

4) A new collection – I want to have a bit of fun and do something brand spanking new this year.

5) To do a gallery mail out – and try to get my work stocked in as many galleries as possible!

I suppose I better get cracking then,

Our New Years Resolutions – Laura Bradshaw Heap

So here we are, a new year and another tax return to fill in, eek! We thought it would be interesting to have a bit of a catch up with the Collect_ive gang and find out what everyone’s plans are for the next 12 months and what we’d all like to achieve. So here they are, the first in our New Years Resolutions…..
Laura Bradshaw-Heap
My resolutions:
1. to seize every opportunity!
2. to be brave when it comes to large scale in my work
3. to have one finished piece from my new series to wear during Schmuck
4. to have an article published
5. to continue to fine tune the curating, so that each ‘Suspended in Pink’ exhibition is better than the last!
Have fun!!!!
Watch this space for another blog post all about the exhibition ‘Suspended in Pink’ that Laura has curated, or if you can’t wait click here to find out more.
