I have had time to sit down and reflect on what I want to accomplish in 2012. I am trying to keep my goals simple and we will see what happens.
1. Finish some of my UFOs! I have my Christmas quilt that has been in the works for 5 years or so plus several other kits I have purchased and would love to finish a few of them. So my goal is to focus on my current list of projects instead of scanning pinterest to find more.
2. Learn to sew clothing. I have made a few things but one of my bigger goals this year to learn how to sew clothing from patterns and make myself some clothes. I plan to start with simple pajama pants or dresses and go from there. Since I got a new Serger for Christmas, that will probably make the clothes making a little easier.
3. Learn to use a Serger. See Goal #2
4. Reorganize and decorate my house. I don't think I have bad taste but I have a hard time putting those finalizing touches on a room and bringing in accessories to make the room complete. My goal is to first, go through my house and clean out and reorganize. I usually do this once a year, room by room and it helps keep things sort of organized and gets rid of clutter. The next goal is to add those things that make a house a home and bring a room together. I plan to use Pinterest to my advantage here for ideas and inspiration. I also need to do this on a very low budget and hope to find help online with that.
I think the first thing I need to do to work on the organization part of this is to find some free baskets and bins to help hold stuff and color them. Craigslist and Freecycle, here I come!
