New year, new plans!

I love this time of year, after the Christmas decorations have come down and the house and studio feel calm and ordered again, I use this month as my quiet time for planning our year; both for the businesses and private life.

It feels like a new school term. My desk is organised and I can think more clearly when there is no clutter.

We have new products to design and produce and changes to make to our websites.

I want to try to get the most out of each day; enjoying the happy moments, drinking a good cup of coffee, particularly after ticking something difficult off my to do list! Getting out and about for inspiration – going to galleries, theatre, visiting new cities.

Most importantly I will be perfecting my pottering skills and practising ‘hygge’ throughout the year!

Here’s to a happy, healthy and productive 2017.
