Looking forward - part 1

Did you spend any time thinking about what you want to achieve in 2012?  I know I did.  I usually spend the last week of December reflecting on the year that's been and thinking about what it is I want to achieve in the coming year.  This year I decided to start a new tradition.  In addition to making my New Years Resolutions and thinking about how I was going to achieve them I decided to do create something with the end of 2012 in mind.  Today I want to share with you part one of my project - a card to the future Sally.

I wanted to make a card and give it to myself at the end of the year.  The idea behind this is borrowed from the idea of a time capsule - memories of the past, to be opened in the future - but with a twist.  My letter was to my future self.  To capture the spirit of my hope for 2012 right now and to write down what I hope to achieve.  I created this card with that in mind.  I even added a dream like focus to the image above to capture the intention behind this creation - dreaming of the future.

At the end of the year when I read it I hope I am able to give thanks for who I have become and the goals I have stretched myself to reach this year.

Thanks for stopping by.
