With 2008 half way over, I started thinking about how I was doing on my New Year's Resolutions. One of my goals this year was to complete all of my uncompleted crafts. I was doing really well until school started.
I finished my first one in January. I had started this cross-stitch before Kevin came home from his mission. Crazy, I know.
Marilyn bought this Christmas advent calendar for me the day Elise Flinders was born. July 29, 2005. My turn around was much better on this one. I completed it in March. Yea!!! Now we will have two Christmas decorations this year.
My Halloween witches are still a work in progress. I started this one when we lived in Hawaii. My friend Ashley and I would lay out all day at the beach and then we would watch TV (she didn't have a TV) and our husbands would study while we cross-stitched. Ohh the pre-children days... Hopefully this one will get done before the best holiday ever... HALLOWEEN!
My other New Year's Resolution is to keep the top of my fridge clean. Sometimes I don't do too well with that one.
My last New Year's Resolution, I had this one for 2007 too, is to be more eco-friendly. Now that is a pretty broad goal so I narrowed it down to bringing my own bags when I go grocery shopping. If I buy something little that will fit in my purse, I don't take a bag. It's my part in taking care of the Earth.
