My 2011 Crafting Resolutions

I realize it is now the 29th of the month and most people make resolutions on the first.  I however am not like most people (shocking, I know). Instead of making the same resolutions I always make (eat healthier, exercise more, save money) I am instead going to make craft resolutions and goals I hope to accomplish this year.  I also figure if I put them out on the internets, someone might hold me to them. 
  1. Make time to craft at least once a week in my lovely craft room. 
  2. Create a Birthday/Anniversary Calendar to keep track of everyone's personal holidays.
  3. Mail handmade cards to people on their special days and "just because".
  4. Update my blog, regularly.
  5. Start and finish our wedding scrapbook. 
  6. Learn to knit.
  7. Make and send cards for Valentine's Day, Halloween, and Christmas (and maybe St. Patrick Day and the 4th of July).
  8. Start making more paper crafted items (home decor projects, decorated picture frames, banners, cupcake toppers)
  9. Muster enough courage to actually sell my items at a local farmers market or craft fair.
  10. Submit work to be published in a crafting magazine.
I have high hopes for 2011! Ten goals and resolutions shouldn't be too hard to manage, right? I hope you can help me to achieve them. 
Originally I wrote this on my facebook page on January 11th.  I am happy to say that I have already accomplished a couple of things on the list.  I finished my Special Event Calendar this week and hope to post pictures of it soon.
