A new year, a new chapter. A new chance for limitless possibility. I just love the beginning of any new period (a year, a season, a week even) because its the chance for a fresh start, to finally do all those things you always planned to do. So to commence the start of this fresh new year I have put together a list of 27 concrete, cross-offable goals to accomplish in my 27th year of life. Some are far off dreams, others will be easy and most will be achievable with some old-fashioned hard work and focus. Without further adieu, in no particular order:
27 Goals for 2011
#2. Sew 12 new dresses, one per month.
#3. Buy a house.
#4. Finish the quilts I started last year and make 1 one for the couch.
#7. Create business cards.
#9. Take a photography class.
#10. Plan a family budget and stick to it.
#11. Sew a couchful of pillows.
#12. Participate in a craft show.
#13. (private, sorry!)
#17. Plant a garden for sauces and can.
#18. Visit my grandma's grave.
#19. Make place mats, chair cushions and more napkins for the kitchen table.
#20. See Hank III play.
#21. Wash my face every night (gross, I know but a hard one for me!)
#22. Have my wedding ring sized
#25. Exercise regularly and reward myself monthly for sticking with it.
#26. Find a blog sponsor.
Mostly achievable I think. Do you have a list? If so please leave a link!
