Just a few of my Goals for 2012

I've never done this before. This whole making of goals thing is new for me  but this post from a beautiful mess got me motivated

I thought this was a great idea so I've made a list of my own. So here's my top 10 to get me started.

1- Participate in an art show.

2- Make a dress for myself.

3- Post on my blog weekly

4- Start a group blog with my sisters.

5- Invest in a business e-course

6- Steam line my homeschooling schedule

7- Set up an etsy account

8- Start a creative journal

9- Make a product to sell in my etsy shop

10- Go green and make all natural cleaning products.

That pretty much covers most of the bases that I'm involved in.  I already have a couple in the works. Make a list yourself, keep it posted where you can see it regularly and go for it. Make a better year for yourself.

Updates to my studio

My favorite idea light.

my daughter made these cute paper crowns for my bunny pin cushion.

I love it when my studio is lit up.

I recently got this paper rack for all my scrapbook paper.

I also snagged these board books.

I love seeing all my paper displayed.

It's a work in progress but it's exciting to see it evolve.

Our first family picture in 10 years

It's amazing how time flies when you have children. Things are categorized into events that happened before children and after children. I love this picture. It was from my sister in laws wedding a couple if months ago. Seeing it will keep me on my toes for the upcomming year to make more pictures. I hope you do the same.
