When I started out the year, I had very specific resolutions that I had given myself.
*Be the best Mom and Wife I can be
*Learn to play my ukulele well
*Slim down my fabric/yarn stash
*Be creative and believe in my creativity
*Learn to cook more than spaghetti
*Meet at least 2 of my internet buddies
*throw away my holey sweat pants
So let's review, and see how I did, shall we?
*Be the best Mom and Wife I can be: well, this is really an on going thing that I am constantly working on, but since my children are growing and I haven't killed my husband in his sleep, I'd say that things are going well. :)
*Learn to play my ukulele well: I started taking ukulele classes! I am not a whole lot better, but at least I have gotten the hang of it and can play more than one song.
*Slim down my fabric/yarn stash: check and check. I had some huge destash sales and have been able to keep both stashes at a reasonable level.
*Be creative and believe in my creativity: This was a big one for me. I was master of always talking myself out of things. Coming up with reasons why I shouldn't do something or why something I made wasn't good enough. I am getting better at believing in myself and what I make. I opened up an etsy shop AND started a blog. Big steps, I'd say!
*Learn to cook more than spaghetti: I can now add chili to that list, hahaha
*Meet at least 2 of my internet buddies: a BIG YES!!! I went to Sewing Summit! It was fantastic and I met a lot of my online friends and made some new ones!
*throw away my holey sweat pants: Yes, I managed to do this one too, although I regretted it as soon as I did it. lol But never fear, I have a NEW pair of non-holey sweat pants that are doing the job quite nicely.
So what do I have on the books for this year? Hmm, let's see.
*I am going to keep being the best mom and wife that I can be.
*I would like to try and get out of my comfort zone with my photography
*Make things for my shop on a more regular basis
*and while I am at that, try to write my blog posts on a more regular basis also.
*Be better about getting things in the mail on time
*Try really hard to trust and believe in myself and what I do
*I have at least 1 meet up with an internet friend(s)
*....and if I happen to lose a few pounds, that would be ok too.
I still have lots of catching up to do. So I will probably do a catch up post later on in the week. There has been lots of sewing, I just have to write about it all :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
