The title of this post started out as “2013 goals”. Then I realized that made me sound like a crazy over-achiever. I love setting goals at the beginning of a year, and this year I have three I’d like to share with you. There’s something about writing them down in a blog post that makes me feel like I’m being held accountable for them. So, in no particular order, my goals for 2013:Once upon a time, I could make any apparel item I wanted. I had gone to school for fashion design and graduated with a brain PACKED full of knowledge. Fast forward seven years, two jobs on the business side of fashion, marriage and a baby and I feel like my brain has been wiped clean. Over the next year, I plan on relearning everything I once had down. It’s all in my brain somewhere, and I can’t wait to have it all back, and then put it all to good use!I used to be a pack rat. Emphasis on the used to. I like to blame it on my artistic side. I’m now a very organized person that likes to have a place for everything. But living many years giving some of the folks on Hoarders a run for their money has left me really needing to go thru a lot of stuff and just reassess what I own. I’ve already been working on this and my home feels so fresh! It’s fabulous. I’ve made a list of everything I plan on going thru this year and it excites me! From my shoes to my photos to my recipes, everything is getting sorted thru! It’s going to be grand.I suffer from Project ADD. I start a project, get an idea for a new one and start that one before finishing the first. And then when I’m on project number two, i think of three more grand ideas and start all those! This leaves me with a ton of unfinished projects and the ones I finish tend to be lower quality than I’m capable of. Not good. And it definitely adds to my things I need to declutter. So I plan on working on only one project at a time. I’m also keeping a notebook for the ideas that I’m not ready to start. This is really hard for me, but I’m determined!
There they are. Now you all must hold me to my word! So far, this year is off to a great start! My studio is spotless, I’ve taken an online purse design class, and I have yet to pull out more than one project at a time. Go me! I’ll be keeping you posted of my progress. 2013 is going to be a good year. I can feel it.
So what are your goals? Anyone working on something fun?
