I Resolve To...


That time of year again where we dust off the 'ol note pad and write down the things that we SWEAR we are going to do to make the upcoming new year uh-may-zing.

• Make Yellow Heart Art even bigger and better! When I started as just a print shop back in 2011 I really thought that that would be my only avenue. Since then I have also made graphic art necklaces, plushes/pillows for your home, scarves, stamps, coasters and wooden necklaces. I always think I can't think of any more products but turns out I still can (I blame Yellow Heart Art for why I can't sleep at night, ever)
• Style my hair more. I have ALL this hair and all I ever do with it is part it on the side, barbecue it with my flat iron, and call it a day. It's time for my 'do to be more creative.

• Do more projects for "me". True Story: I'm a graphic designer and sell my artwork for a living yet there is not a stitch of my artwork ANYWHERE in my apartment.

• Learn to crochet. This has been on my list for a while. My grandma taught me how to crochet back when I was like 11. I kind of remember it and think I can pick it up again. I'm lucky to be 28 and still have my grandmother in my life, my goal is to make her something using crochet really soon. I know she would be so stoked that I actually made her something with a skill that she has been trying to teach me for years.

• Use more coupons. It's like they're giving you free money, I would be stupid to not look for more of them.

• Actually use my vinyl cutting machine. I have had it for a while and have not cut any vinyl using it yet because, well, to be honest I have zero time.

• Take more photos. I used to be a picture taking foo' (thats "fool" for those of you that don't speak gangsta) but I can't remember the last time I took artistic photos with my camera. Bub, do you hear me? We're going on a photo adventure soon. Get ready.

• Lose weight. Yes yes I know I know its one of those things everyone always says their going to do. This was actually my resolution last year, and I did everything in my power to try to shed the pounds. I did weight watchers, a high fiber diet so I would stay full longer and eat less, a low carb diet and cardio. If anything I kept gaining weight, it wasn't making any sense so I went to the doctor and he believes he knows why I wasn't able to lose the pounds last year, so we are going into 2013 with a new plan and per my doctor's instructions trying a FINAL new method! I hope this frekkin works, homegirl is sick of tugging at her clothes every time she sits down or gets up. Honestly, I don't need to be stick thin, I just want to be comfortable in my body regardless of what the number on the scale is. I'm more about "feeling ok in my clothes" rather than reaching a certain number.

What does 2013 look like for you? :)


  1. These are great resolutions! I, too, generally barbecue my hair because that's the way it looks best. Otherwise, it's a little cocker-spaniel-ears up in here. Have fun learning to crochet! Knitting is on my list, maybe not for this year, but soon. I just want to wrap myself in chunky scarves. :)

  2. Brilliant resolutions Leonora!! I hope you achieve each and every one of them in the new year!!! xoxo

  3. I'd love to learn to either knit or crochet this year! I've been given needles & hooks and yarn, so I seriously have no excuse!

  4. These are great resolutions. I think it is so funny you don't have your own artwork on your walls. I'd remedy that one first. :)
