Don’t you just love my Christmas present from E.. It’s the self-portrait calendar, not the apron. It’s hanging on the inside of our pantry door. Lots on it already!!!
So aside from a bumping first day to the year 2012 has been travelling along rather nicely. For the most part we’ve been getting on and having fun. Our usual caper – lots and lots of water play but mostly the pool and the new slip and slide since it is a bit tricker to get to the beach with three smalls. I’m not brave enough to go with three children on my own yet.
It’s time to set some goals for this year. Looking back at last years I might have been a tad ambitious, especially considering that I knew I was pregnant when I wrote the list…
2011 creative goals:
Crochet: hook something for myself to wear,
a blanket for Ms. M
make more things for myself, learn to use knitted fabric, have a go using a twin needle
Embroidery: keep practicing french knots and smock something!
Photography: do online photography course and spend more time learning about photoshop
Printing: get back into it!
Around the home: finish the native garden at the front of our house, paint the house,
paint my bedroom, paint the lounge room. Blah! …oh yeah – and get a new oven.
Still I managed to get some things crossed off.
For 2012 I’m not going with the same format for my goals, rather this year I’ll carry over all the bits and bobs that weren’t crossed off last year’s list and add the aim of making something for myself every month. That means at the end of the year I should have twelve new things made for myself by myself. I’m worth it.
What about you? What are your creative goals for 2012?
