January Crafting Goals

Happy New Year!


Well, it's that time of the year when most people make a New Year's resolution.  According to http://www.businessnewsdaily.com; by January 2013 88% of resolutions made for this year will have been broken.  That's way too many!!!   Instead of making a resolution for the entire year, I decided to make monthly goals and resolutions.  This seems like a more attainable method to be successful - for me anyways! 


For the month of January I created Household resolutions, Personal resolutions, Business resolutions and Crafting resolutions. I tend to put too much on my plate and get frustrated it I don't accomplish everything, so I started small for this month.


 
Business Goals
* List 10 items on Etsy Shop

Crafting Goals
*Let Madailein paint canvas for bathroom
*Make fabric covered bin from diaper box
*Knit Spring place mats


I have been wanting to have Madailein paint a picture for the girls bathroom for over a year now! It's time to get it done. 
I came across the diaper box bin idea at www.positivelysplendid.com. What a fabulous way to reuse diaper boxes - and I sure do have a lot those!

Aren't these awesome?!!  You would never know it was a diaper box!

The last craft I will be trying this month was found at www.joann.com.  They have many projects on their website for all types of skill levels.  The knitted place mats seem fairly simple!

3 crafts - definitely doable!  Happy crafting everyone and enjoy your day!
