New Year's Resolution 2010

HaPpY NeW YeAr!!!!

Sorry, I know it's already day 2 into the New Year and this is the first chance
I've posted anything personally.

And that's what brings me to my New Year's Resolution.

I hope that with your encouragement I'll actually be able to accomplish these goals.

So let me begin.

Resolution #1 is for me.
To start to get to feeling better and exercise more. (I have my Wii Fit to help
with that, just need the motivation.)

Resolution #2 is for the blog.
I'd like to have regular postings. (This may mean that I get everything ready
ahead of time. I do promise that if I do this I will make sure that all the
pictures that go with the post are up. I've noticed on some other blogs that the
pics don't always come up because they've posted way too far in advance and
wound up removing some of the pics on their computers to save space. So they
don't show up on the posts.)

Resolution #3 is for my business.
I'd like to start scheduling monthly crops/classes in my home.(Which is fine by
dh, except that I need to keep my house cleaner ahead of time. Currently there
are 2 couches in my living room, the 1 I'm sitting on now then behind that is my
coffee table and behind that is 2nd couch.)

Resolution #4 is a way to bring in more revenue.
I think I'm going to look into opening an Etsy shop and posting the cards I
make onto there for SALE. (Since I love to create, this shouldn't be a problem.
It's just the pricing part that I'm worried about since Etsy takes a cut of the
profit before I see it. And I'd like to be sure I'm making my fair share.)

Resolution #5 is the reason for all the other resolutions.
I'd like to try and have a baby this year. And I need less stress in my life, to be
more healthy, and to be able to quit my job. My dh makes enough money for
me to be able to stay at home except that if I did that now I wouldn't be able to
do the things I love like create. Currently, I get an allowance to help provide for
my supplies and materials for my projects. And if I were to quit my job, now,
we wouldn't have enough for me to continue to get my allowance. Which would
mean no crafting. Which would make me very sad. :(

If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to email me at

Happy Crafting.


  1. Good luck on your resolutions! I stayed home with my firsts (twins) and then worked just one day a week until my next daughter was born- was off 3 years- you will reorganize your priorities- meet other Mom's who are in the same boat- make play dates (maybe potential customers.....). It was well worth it!!

  2. Way to go with your resolutions! Looking forward to getting to know you through SBS29. Kathy

  3. Resolutions are wonderful! Keep a journal of what you do accomplish, even if its not on your list and you'll be surprised how productive you were!

    Blessings and looking forward to those postings!!

  4. Good luck on your resolutions! It is great to plan out your goals so clearly.

    Just a note, I know that Hobby Lobby (and sometimes other local craft shops) let people teach class there if they use supplies sold at that store.
