2012 Goals and Restyled Sundays #18

Happy New Year!

It seems so strange to think about 2012 being here.
I swear Y2K was not that long ago, where did the last 12 years go?

Before making any resolutions, I thought I would go over last years list and see how I did.
1.Post regularly- I think I did ok with that, but this year I want to be more intentional.

2. Take before photos- I am getting much better at that, but still forget once in a while.

3.Get a new camera to improve my pics- Yeah, I got a Canon T3, now to learn more about it.

4. Paint what I have before I buy more- Big Failure! Must work on that one!

5.Master Mod Podge- I have definitely gotten better, but I wouldn't say I've mastered it.

6. Join more linky parties-I was doing really well with this, but have slid backwards.

7.Find more ways to re purpose and restyle-Thanks to blogland I know the ways, now to try them.

8. Clean out my stash of projects- Another Big Failure!

I guess I haven't done too bad, I accomplished more than I thought,
but I need to work on those goals that I totally failed at.

Soooo.... for 2012 here she goes

1. I am going to set a regular posting schedule for myself. If I know what days I am going to post,
I can work on those posts ahead of time, instead of thinking I need to sit down and write it all at once.

2. Continue to grow my blog and make new blogging friends.

3.  Buy no more furniture or small projects until I finish what I have!!!

4. Finish my sewing projects that are started, or give them away!!!

5. Bring a more cohesive look to my antique booths.

6. Get back into my Etsy business.

7. Learn to use my camera effectively

8. Clean and  organize both my sewing and painting work areas.

Ok, I think that's enough for one year. I have some personal goals as well, but for my blogging
and Restyling business, I will feel great if I can accomplish all of these.

I want to thank Chelsea at Kiss My Brass for being the sole participant in last weeks party,
besides myself of course. It was Christmas Day, so I know you were all busy. I sure hope to see you
all back this week! Bring your friends, the more the merrier!

Feel free to share your goals, projects or treasures this week.
