Happy Happy New Year!
How is it already 2018. I swear time is flying the older I get (yes I know I sound just like my mother.) It is always fun to read and hear the reflections of others in a year that has past and what they hope to accomplish in the new one to come. Well this girl is NO DIFFERENT :) I have got loads of things I want to do for 2018 - some I already know about in the coming months and hopefully some new exciting ventures that are still a mystery. But I would also like to recap some exciting things that have happened to me in 2017, and what I hope to improve upon as a brand new 2018-er. Here are some of the notable accomplishments of Paper Figments for 2017:
-I was twice published: in the La Crosse Tribune, a local newspaper and L.I.N.K. Magazine, another local publication. (You can read them HERE!)
-A collaboration formed between Paper Figments and the Global Conservation Force. GCF is a non-profit organization that dedicates itself to bringing an end to animal extinction and illegal poaching through outreach and education programs, and direct action with on site protection of these creatures. Through the GCF series I created solely for this collaboration, all proceeds of the prints and note cards goes directly to the GCF to help them in continuing their fight. To date, a total of $945.55 has been donated - THANK YOU!
And to tie it all off, I was featured on a local news station WKBT in their "Eye Piece" series and interviewed about my (enthusiastic) relationship with paper! More importantly though, Bernie made her first debut in this special and she is now a diva who demands all the attention she feels she deserves.
I truly appreciate all of the support and love I have received and cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for myself and Paper Figments. A New Year's Resolution I am committing to right now is to keep you all up to date with more frequent love chats. Even if they are just quick blurps to show you what I am currently working on, or ideas for future pieces, I want you all to be in the know with me and my passion.
So THANK YOU again for supporting me and signing yourselves up to receive my newsletters! I will be including special promotions only available to subscribers and will also add in some videos of me in action - Whoo!
2018 will be the year of Paper! So with that, Peace, Love and Happy Papering :)
P.S. If you have any ideas for me on what you would like to see more of, or hear about then just let me know! You can comment here, or send me a note in the contact page.
