RESOLUTIONS OR GOALS?

 

I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers are making New Years Resolutions, well we should know by now that usually doesn’t work, but goals on the other hand usually does, for me at least, see resolutions are things that make you feel like a failure if not seen through where as goals are things to achieve, to strive for, with less guilt as there are no time limits, so whether you set resolutions or goals remember it starts with you!

It's time to make some New Years Resolutions, but what is the point if you don't have the willpower to make those changes? Starting January 1st I will be doing a 30 DAYS OF WILLPOWER series discussing all aspects of willpower: what it is, how to create it, and how to use it to create the life of your dreams.

I think one of my biggest goals for the New Year will be to give the sewing room a totally new look, I shutter to think how long it’ll take to remover everything to start over from scratch lol!

Things I’m getting into “so far” READING , SEWING,SCRAPPY PROJECTS, & QUILTING challenges

there are many things I want to brush up on, learn & venture out onto this year

my main goals are to:

**learn to dye fabrics

Using turmeric as a natural dye. I did this following this tutorial to make curtains for my massage space. I used white flat sheets and they came out BEAUTIFULLY! I had been wanting to try natural dyes for awhile. It is ridiculously easy. :)

**summit my  refashion apron to

the Apronolgy magazine
