My Goals for 2020

Before I moved to Yuma I had a ton of plans. Since moving here I’ve had to abandon most of my plans because Yuma does not have the same economic climate as Fargo. This is a very different animal. There are not as many opportunities to gain programming experience on the job. I have fallen sideways into WordPress development, social media management, SEO, ecommerce and Web design.

Yuma also has an unexpectedly rich arts and market culture. There are markets and fairs all winter. How much do I want to be a part of this? I am already a member of the a local artist co-op here. What are my artistic goals in this artisan wonderland? Here are my personal, artistic and professional goals for 2020.

Learn the Adobe CS

I want to become more proficient with InDesign, Photoshop, Adobe Spark and Illustrator.

Learn all the WordPress

I am really into this right now. I want to become a front end and back end expert.

Get Back Under 200 Pounds

I am no longer willing to remain unhealthy and unattractive. I am willing to workout. I am willing to find low calorie food I enjoy eating. I am willing to eat only 2 over the top meals a month to achieve my goals.

Sell My Art Stock Pile

I am willing to vend at 4 market events a year. I want to sell more art. I'm attempting to do this through several avenues like the Littlewood Co-op, farmers markets and my online store. If it doesn't sell I'm going to just hide gift bags all over town to get rid of it. I have too much art.

Work 30 Hours a Week

I enjoy my job. Its challenging to the point of a nervous breakdown but, it is only 24 hours a week. I need to have at least 30 hours a week. To do this I need to help create more web work and learn the skills to do anything that comes at me.

Become a Bead Master

I’m throwing all my artistic efforts into two baskets. One of those baskets is bead weaving. I’m going to attempt to hit this very hard this year. I even bought a light box to showcase all my new work.

Goals for 2020

I Want to Get Good at Watercolor

This is the second artistic skill I am going to be hacking away at. I am really into watercolor painting this year and I want to get better at it. I can incorporate ink drawings into the works and its so easy to clean up. Watercolor is the best.

Goals for 2020

I Want to Hunt for Treasure

My husband bought me a metal detector for Christmas and I have not used it yet. I am super into watching mudlarking videos and I want to find some artifacts for myself.

I Want to Visit Mexico

I'm here living on the border. I want to finally cross the border into Mexico and see the other side. I even have my passport. I just need to go.

Travel with Family

I want to travel with my family. I want to see my mother again and go places with my husband, kids and grand kids. I don't want to go on a plane trip or cross country. I'm not ready for that yet.

Spend Time With My Husband

I want to spend quality time with my husband and grow closer to him. We've had a rough few years and we're not as close as we could be. We've been gaming, dieting, working out together and listening to books a lot so far this year. I want to keep doing this.

This year is about becoming an expert at something. This year is about being relentless, showing up and doing the thing until I am good at it. These are my plans. Let’s see how far I can get with these things. I will scrap book my progress in my Recent Works section.
