Planning for 2018

Posted by Jenni Shah on

Now that we have slept off the holiday excesses and dragged ourselves back to work, it is time to ask that inevitable question "What do I want to achieve in 2018"?  I'm not talking about New Years Resolutions (when have they ever worked?), I'm talking about taking a quiet moment to think about what 2018 holds for us.
Rainbow motivation 2018 planning pot of gold rainbow jackpot
This is a photo from my summer and it really speaks to me about goals and targets and that 'one-in-a-million' jackpot.  Of course if it leads to a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow then that's even better!  But seriously, it has nudged me into
  • setting some serious goals (like entering a woven piece into a competition),
  • evaluating the weaving that excited me the most in 2017 (learning to dye yarns and hand paint warps for my watercolour scarves),
  • looking at my most successful lines from last year (the Recycled Bag Bags) and how I can be smarter in making them, 
  • and looking at what didn't work as well (mmmm that's like choosing the least favourite child!)
  • and finally choosing a direction for new product development (all I can say is finely woven fabrics, shining gold and red rayon threads, and evening bags....)

So that's the outline of my year - what does yours look like?
