2012, a new year with new goals. 2011 was my year of excuses. 2012 will be the year of DOING! Who's with me?
I spent the holiday weekend organizing my crafting/sewing area and craft closet. I'm motivated and ready to make the most out of this new and exciting year. On the agenda... more sewing. Over the years I've collected hundreds and hundreds of yards of fabric and while it looks so pretty on the shelves, I'm feeling wasteful. I keep acquiring but not using. No more! Instead of loving a fabric so much that I can't bear to use it I'm going find a fab pattern, grab a treasured fabric and go for it. I'm excited just writing about that.
Along with all of the sewing I have other craft supplies practically spilling out of my craft closet. You'll have to stay tuned to see what those projects will be. Creativity FTW!
What this year won't bring is a lot of knitting. I've had to face the sad reality that the only place I can wear wool is on my feet... and how many pairs of handknit socks does one person in SoCal really need? I will knit the occasional gift but for the most part knitting is going to be taking a hiatus. That also means I won't be buying yarn. In fact, I plan to destash 200 skeins. Yes, I know there are wool alternatives. No, I don't really like them. Less knitting just means more time for other fun things!
Here's where I really set a lofty goal. A blog post every Monday. Not only that... but have a completed project to show in that Monday blog post. I.WILL.DO.IT.
As soon as I wrote that I heard a clock start ticking and my craft supplies whisper my name. I love it!
I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season and great start to the New Year. Let's get crafting!
