Tracey’s Top 10 of 2010

I thought I should start the new year by reviewing my last one. To wit, a list of my professional successes, failures and the stuff that kept me going (and some that almost did me in) for the past year:

  1. Sold one of my favorite pieces to a gallery walk regular. She is an art professor at CSU…dig that!
  2. Began integrating regular art time into my life.
  3. Survived my first year of managing a gallery.
  4. Revamped the way I conduct business. I feel really great about starting my 13th year as a freelance web developer.
  5. Participated in my first smudging ceremony.
  6. Took workshops with Kelly Kilmer, Carla Sonheim, Katie Kendrick and Leighanna Light. Took something away from every single class and broadened my horizons a bit.
  7. Ate fresh berry pie with homemade whipped cream with my fellow PSA artists in October. Went outside of my comfort zone and went to drinks at the Rio with fellow NoCo artists, many of whom I did not know.
  8. My MacBook Pro died a scary little death. Thank God for Apple Care and the Mac Shack. Spent a whole weekend without a computer and survived!
  9. Purchased a Droid Incredible this summer. I love the freedom it has been giving me, not having to drag the laptop everywhere I go. Quite helpful in emergencies!
  10. Survived a lot of professional drama, but stayed mostly intact and learned a lot about myself and about people.

And now I will go up to the sofa and continue to drink some sparkly adult beverage while I retire my 2010 journal and start my 2011 journal.

Next post will be some workshop announcements, so stay tuned!

    1. @kelly, I don’t know where I’d be without the support from good friends like you. Thank you for being there (even when I make you crazy!) xo
