New Year’s Resolutions

January 2, 2016


Happy New Year!

I’m your average 20-something woman. I want to lose weight, eat better, find my hidden abs, etc every year. Then for good measure I throw in less tv watching, more book reading and so on.

But this year I want to do something different. I want to make a list that goes beyond the typical – I want to get crafty, I want to learn, to challenge myself, to fill my apartment with all the homemade items I can and have someone say, “Where did you buy that?”

“Oh, I made that myself!”

So I am declaring on this blog my Resolutions for 2016:

  1. Learn calligraphy. I love making my own cards, but the way some people write BLOWS MY MIND! And I want to get in on that action.

  2. This one is pretty obvious if you follow this blog: I want to blog more! I want to do one post a week with a challenge or update or something. Once a week – easy peasy.


    What? You and your sister don’t sing in the most high-pitched tone you can to celebrate New Year’s? Well, that’s a mistake.

  3. Hone in on my cooking skills. I love reading blogs about people cooking and baking these wonderful dishes while I hear my microwave churning my dinner of the night. NO MORE! I’m going to get out the pans and dishes I never use and challenge myself. Fingers crossed it tastes decent.

  4. Upholster a chair. This one has always seemed really hard to me. I can do a cushion seat – but a chair? I have one that needs a re-do, and I will be the one to do it!apartment decor
  5. Craft more. Since moving to Central Florida away from the helpful tools my parents provided I have really put crafting on the back burner. Grant it, it’s more challenging in an apartment as oppose to a garage and giant yard where I can spray, saw and making noise. But I love crafting and want to do it more!

    This photo has nothing to do with crafting, but look how cool we look. You would never know we were not in sync (my bad).
