A New Year to Learn and Grow

new-year

Welcome 2009! What a year it has been! And don’t you just love the feeling of a brand-new start? I’m excited to tell you that 2009 has even more wonderful things in store at SWAK! A lot is happening behind the scenes to make it a place where you’ll want to come to time and time again.

I came across this quote the other day and it really made me think. It’s by A. D’Angelo and he said,

“Develop a passion for learning.
If you do, you will never cease to grow.”

Don’t you just love that? I know for myself, I have learned so many new things this past year with my embroidery. By continuing to learn, I know that the possibilities are endless and my passion for creativity will continue to grow. Sometimes I feel like I’m close to mastering a technique, and then I gleam some insight from a good friend, a co-worker, a fellow embroidery enthusiast, and I think, “YES! I’ve got more to learn! Let’s keep playing practicing!”

What have you learned this past year and what is something YOU want to become better at in this new year?
