I know I keep randomly mentioning these new year resolutions that I have. I really don't have them clearly defined, but rather these ideas of things that I want to have improved in my life. Things like putting family first, reconnecting with friends, tying up loose ends in my life, baking more, being healthy, being more positive, realizing and maintaining my priorities, simplifying everything.
You know, nice, little, simple stuff like that. :) Yeah, I know, I know, it's a tall order.
Another one is to do more handmade and homemade. Get back to basics. There are some things I want to learn- how to sew, how to cook, how to bake. Yes, I know a little, but I would like to know more.
On Facebook, there was a post going around. The first 5 people to comment on my status get something handmade by me, sometime this year. I have a couple of things picked out already and I have to learn some new stuff in order to make it happen (hello double pointed needles and cabling!) but I hope it will work out well. It is a nice jumpstart and motivation to me to keep going.
Over Christmas, I did make some Christmas gifts. For the nursery school teachers, Sebastian's OT and Kathy, I knitted ruffle scarves. I used the Redhart Sashay yarn and they turned out great. Everyone seems to like them. (just in case anyone is interested in them, I still have some colours, and I sell them. Just message me!! :)
For the people at work, I made "Flunkie" shirts. We have a saying at work that we are all just "the flunkies that work the numbers." So, everyone on the team got their own Flunkie shirt, with their own sayings.
