Just around the corner…

I’m glad it’s the weekend! I’m tired and need to rest, decompress and relax.

I may not get the rest due to things that need to get done this weekend, but if I get them done that will be an accomplishment and in a sense I will get the relaxing and decompressing I’m in need of.

The New Year is just around the corner and I have thought about how I’m going to approach 2014.  I have set some goals and resolve to get them done.  I have tried to set time frames for each one, to help me stay on track.

I have made a list and will start with it.  I think this list will keep me busy all year.

Here’s my list.

  1. Finish Log Cabin quilt by 01/31/14
  2. Make a new handbag by 02/28/14
  3. Finish UFO’s (unfinished opportunities) depending on the size/detail of the UFO being worked on at the time, I figure it will take 1-2 months for each one.
  4. Lose 20 lbs. I want to do it right and not by some crazy crash diet, so I’m not sure how long this will take, but it will be something I strive for throughout the year.

Have you set goals or made resolutions for 2014?

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
