2013 Creative Resolutions: Getting It Done

What’s the creative project you’ve been meaning to get done?

As 2012 drew to a close, we asked you to declare your creative New Year’s resolution; we heard from more than 100 people ready to write, dance, build, play, and perform. We follow-up with these four throughout the year:

      → Michael, cellist


      → Ariel, woodworker


      → Charlie, graphic artist


      → Linda, author

We hope their creativity and ambition is contagious!
