hello 2010

it's official; happy 2010 everyone! after a quick blog wrap-up yesterday, this post is looking at the coming year. a new year means a nice new list of things to do. i didn't complete that many of the things on last year's list, thanks to some vague plans & last minute additions, but i've been preparing for this year's & i can't wait to start! here are twenty four things i wish to achieve before 2011:

1. learn to crochet (i did do a crochet class... i just didn't retain anything i learned at it!)
2. start screenprinting again
3. visit canada
4. do my 09/10 taxes before july
5. visit three beaches
6. exhibit my work three times
7. redecorate the kitchen
8. knit/crochet a hat for my friend's baby (due in june)
9. clean down sides of cooker though alan did this!
10. stay in a wooden cabin/tipi
11. visit the deer centre in fife
12. make it to 150 sales on etsy & then some! 269 by the end of the year
13. (start to) learn to drive
14. less buying, more saving for adventures!
15. pay off my student loan
16. clean out inbox & unsubscribe from old mailing-lists done, though it's building up again
17. phone home more often
18. less online procrastinating
19. make wrapping paper at christmas
20. open a folksy shop
21. make it to 20 sales on folksy (had 14 sales before i decided to close up)
22. get a massage
23. read twelve books didn't keep track, but hope i managed this

I have a few of these on my list too - learn to crochet has been on it for a few years now though, as has learn to drive. I'll race you! :)

hellojenuine said...

that sounds like a challenge! i am petrified of the idea of driving, but i want to get it over with. need to purchase my ridiculously expensive provisional license first though, bah.

moosh said...

Shamefully, I have held my provisional licence for *whispers* 14 years come March! I really have no excuse.
