My Goals for 2012

Well it is the last day of 2011 and I am sitting here thinking about what I want to achieve in 2012.  I still haven't settled on a word yet - I am thinking FOCUSED but I really like CREATE as well.  I am going to sleep on it and I will make a decision soon.  I have been asked what I want to acheive for 2012 and here is my list:


  • Start challenges maybe once a month or once a quarter.  I think a challenge would be a lot of fun and I want to offer prizes to the winner.



  • Expand the Digi Shoppe.  I have let it sort of slide by the wayside with Christmas but I want to do some special Freebies there to drive more traffic.



  • Scrapbook - I want my children's scrapbook to reflect the age they really are.



  • Design Teams - I am going to continue doing Design Teams they keep me motivated, focus and those creative juices flowing.  



  • Updating my Etsy and Zibbets shops.  Smaller items I am going to keep on my Zibbet Shop because they don't charge a listing fee.  Bigger items on my Etsy Store.



  • Paint MORE!!!!  Watercolors - I want to get back to basics and really show my daughter the basics of art.



  • Organization is always on the list and makes it way to the top.



  • Garden - I want an apple tree for my front yard, 2 grape vines (red and green), a coffee plant and Mini Orange Tree.  These are all items my children eat their weight in (not the coffee) and I would love fresh grapes off the vine!



  • Keep my weight in check - I am standing in a Wedding in August (my brother is getting married) and the measurements need to be in by February so I really need to keep my weight in check.  



  • Laugh more - laughing, hearing my kids laugh over the strangest things makes me laugh.



  • Give more hugs - I like hugs.  I am a hugger and I love giving and receiving hugs.  Booga is a hugger he runs up to friends and gives hugs.



  • Read more - I want to finish more than one book.



  • One weekend a month go unplugged - I am really going to try and do this.  More family craft projects!



  • Try a new meal once a month - I just downloaded a Crock Pot Cookbook to my phone (Kindle App.)



  • Try something new - I really want to learn how to crochet - so if everyone on my Christmas List gets hats for Christmas next year I finally figured it out!



  • Work on my actual Portfolio - get an actual resume going.



  • Have more pieces displayed at the Craft and Hobby Association Summer Show.



I think this is a pretty good start for 2012!!!
