DEFINED BY WIKIPEDIA:
A New Year's Resolution is a commitment that an individual makes to a project or a habit, often a lifestyle change that is generally interpreted as advantageous. The name comes from the fact that these commitments normally go into effect on New Year's Day and remain until the set goal has been achieved, although many resolutions go unachieved and are often broken fairly shortly after they are set.
I started THIS THREAD over on Ravelry and it made me think about the normal list of things I like to make called RESOLUTIONS. I normally don't make RESOLUTIONS per se, but I like to make lifestyle changes.
Last year I didn't make any type of resolutions. I just stated that I needed to make some changes. And baaaaaaaaaaaaaaabyyyyyyyy, I did JUST that. I cut loose some folks that were not good for me, changed my eating habits (I've just about cut out fast food, but do still eat it, but VERY seldom, don't drink too much soda, those type things....)
THIS year however I have a few things I want to ATTEMPT to stick to some "resolutions" DUM DUM DUMMMMMMMMM lol.
I want to plan my projects better. This year, I just bought patterns because they are on sale. I will probably STILL do that, but I want the patterns that I buy to coordinate with SOMETHING else that I have in my stash already. I have to stop making "orphan" items. Same with purchasing fabrics. I know I will still buy fabric, but I want to make sure I am buying something that will coordinate with something already in my stash. I am going to have to be VERY careful with this because I am going on a big fabric shopping trip next year. Soo, we will see how I do! LOL.
I will not be afraid to try a new technique or work with a different/unfamiliar fabric.
Stepping up my game. *pat on my own back* I think I take really good pictures. REALLY GOOD, but I want them to be BETTER. I want that "WOW" factor. I have it SOMETIMES now, but I want it to be more consistent. I plan on challenging myself weekly. I will NOT do a daily challenge because I know I won't stick with it, but once a week I can handle. I am working on my "assignments" now.
One goal I have is to submit more. I used to do this all the time, but now I want to do it more. I will not be that so consumed in submitting that I forget why I scrap person, been there done that. I will not be devastated if my work is not picked up...been there done that. I will however create LO's that I love, and would love to see in print! LOL
Scrap more with my friends! I didn't do NEARLY enough of this, this year. AT ALL. I also want to host more scrap times at my house. I think I have enough room to do that. Cheryl what do you think? I'm going to add another long table, either this week or next. I'll let you come over when Project Organized Creative Space is complete lol.
THINK ABOUT PATTERNS AND YARN BEFORE I BUY THEM. I get SO excited about yarn and patterns that I buy them before I think them through. MUST STOP DOING THAT. I end up with patterns and yarn that I no longer want to make/use and it ends up STASH lol.
Nothing in the food department, I refuse to cut back on or give up sweets lol.
Nothing in the money department. :-) Cuz Imma do what I damn well please.
Nothing in the family department, because hubby and I already talked about that! LOL
Nothing in the friend department because my really close friends have already been talked to!
Ok, that is it. Do you guys have any plans!?!?!? Do tell.
