What we are working on for this year

Setting goals is so important.  I have set for myself the goal of completing one item for charity each month.  And I am already in the process of making two Valentine's gifts, and know that I need to make 2 quilts for a July birthday of our friends' twin baby girls.  Somewhere I have a UFO Christmas top i made two years ago and put away.
Plus, my scrapbooks need major attention.  Last vacation, the twin girls' I mentioned earlier, Christmas recording, and arranging the daily photo albums too.
I don't want to get overwhelmed and burn out early.  Monthly goals are better for me.

My daughter wants to have 100 new items for a craft show in May.  That's 20 a month.  A hefty goal for a student with a couple of extra-curricular activites and church involvement.  Staying the course in a steady manner will be her proirity.

Have you made crafting goals for the New Year?  I'd love to hear about them.

Happy New Year!!!!

Hello all!  Welcome to 2015!!

Instead of making a list of resolutions, I went in the idea of one word, and picked what I felt God was giving me for this season of life.  the message of LIGHT!

There is a lot of meaning in that word for me.  I want to be the salt and light in this world where I encounter a great deal of meaness and hate.  I need to lighten up and get a little, ok a lot, healthier this year.  And I love the verse as I come out of a 7 year long deep depression, that I see light ahead, and all my days are not as dark as they once were.

Have you made resolutions?  Or chosen a theme verse?  Or a word?  Care to share?
