2017 Goals

lori-001-2

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I had intended to do a post on Christmas day, but we had some minor Christmas “emergencies”….like a dead car battery and broken water pipes/water issues. Needless to say, our time was spent on fixing those things rather than writing blog posts. It happens…..

I’ve started setting some crafting goals for 2017. Mostly because a friend had asked if I wouldn’t want to sell some gift items at a craft bazaar with her next year. Actually, she wanted me to do that THIS year, but I really didn’t have any items to sell (or the time to make any….). I thought if I committed to this bazaar idea in 2017, I’d have a whole year to get some things made up. AND. If I didn’t sell anything, I’d have gift items already made up to give!

It’s genius really. However. I have to tell you, EVERY year I say….”I’m going to craft all year long and have a bunch of gifts already made up for Christmas”. AND. It never happens. I get a bunch of stuff started and then don’t get it finished before Christmas. Or. I decide the project isn’t really right for the recipient. Or. I fall in LOVE with the project and after dedicating the time into the project….well….I’m not going to lie, I can’t give it up. I have to keep it for me!

Here’s how I’m going to make this different for 2017….

  1. I’m going to knit/crochet/sew/quilt small projects. Projects I can finish rather quickly.
  2. If using yarn, I will NOT use anything finer than worsted weight yarn. I might even use bulky yarn.

Well, that’s the goals. I’ll keep you posted on my progress….

Hi! I'm Lori! Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world! My hubby and I live on a small farm in Eastern Oregon with our dog, cats, chickens, horses and a mule. I work full-time as a department lead at the nursery department of a local hardware store. I'm also an Independent Pampered Chef consultant as I love to cook and bake. You'll discover I have wa-a-a-ay too many hobbies for the amount of "spare time" I have. So, I'll just keep muddling though this life.....
