I never make a big deal about resolutions. Let's be honest, a lot of people are just setting themselves up for failure. I like to just think of things that I want to make happen or try to do. Whether, trying to accessorize more, try a new dish or try harder to make sure I blog once a week... I just don't want to beat myself up in a month when I didn't loose those 10 lbs or I didn't end world hunger. I do have a few things that I do want to do
So this year I started off by starting to clear out the clutter in my "Office". I am trying to spend more time here, so why not make it a place I really want to be. The first thing I did was moved my desk. I felt like I was boxed in & I think it affected my mind. My mind & I am free to move about now. I find that keeping pictures of special times or vacation help me to be in my happy place.......Ooooooommmm
My office serves a few purposes. I am a Party Lite consultant. With that comes a lot of product & supplies. I have dedicated one entire shelf unit to my Party Lite. I did leave the top shelf for my pictures & Mason jars filled with decorations. Items get retired often, so I end up with a lot of old pieces. I need to sell those. Hmmmm, I see another thing I can add to my 2014 "To Do" list.
I have also decided to teach myself how to sew. My niece decided she wanted to make her own clothes so my best friend got her a sewing machine. Needless to say, Twy has yet to actually use it. So I will be the new owner of a sewing machine. My mother-in-law is quite the avid sewer & she does some great things. One of my favorites is her place mats. She makes them for ever occasion AND they are double sided! I want her to teach me how to make them. I tell her all the time that she could sell them at craft shows. I also really want to make cute aprons. Something a little more stylish than your Grandmother's 50 year old apron.
My personal #1 mission is to blog at least once a week. Having an almost 3 year old makes it a little more challenging, but I am up for it. A lot has happened since September & I am looking forward to sharing some of my ideas & recipes. Cheers to an AWESOME 2014!
