A New Year and new goals…

on January 8, 2015

Hello out there to whoever may still be checking out this blog.  I know that it has been severely lacking and that is a problem.  As many of you know, blogging is hard!  Carving out the time, thinking of things to talk about, all a lot of work!  One of my commitments to myself in 2015 is to blog at least twice a week.  I want to grow this little slice of happy, hectic, life and make it shine.  I hope you all will be along for the ride!

I planned to be on here bright and early New Year’s Day to post this, but, as it sometimes likes to do, life does not go along with all of our grand plans!  I have been so sick, starting with a bout of flu (which thanks to my stubbornness, I had no choice but to ride out) before Christmas.  Just as I thought I was recovering from that the week of New Year’s, BAM!, I’m struck down again.  This time its been a viral respiratory infection caused by the flu.  All that I can do at this point is wait the two weeks (!!!) that they are telling me it takes to recover.  It has put a serious damper on things at the happy, hectic home.  After me being down for two weeks, I can tell you it certainly looks like a hectic home at the moment!  I am really hoping that come this weekend I can try to get some organization going.

I have a lot of crafty plans for 2015.  My knitting and crochet got away from me and seemed to take center stage over all the other things I love to create, so 2015 is the year for branching back out and working on more than just knitting and crocheting.  While I will have plenty of projects to come in those, I also plan to get back into my cross stitching, wood painting, and also get going with my new Rainbow Loom!  There are so many fun things I want to create this year!   I have been on Pinterest, updating and deleting, getting in gear, since I feel that can be a great tool for ideas, as well as organization and showing off a bit of finished work.  If you are interested in seeing what I have in the works at the moment, take a look at my WIP Board on Pinterest.  There will soon be an upcoming projects board and a nice new show off board for all my 2015 finished objects.

I will also be trying out plenty of new recipes from Pinterest in 2015 and posting my reviews on them.  That along with my big plan of decluttering my house (how long have I been talking about that now???) and reading 52 books, it is already shaping up to be a happy, hectic, handmade year!
