{2010 recap + 2011 goals}

it is true what they say, as you grow older, every year seems to fly by faster.
i can hardly believe a whole year has passed (not to mention an entire decade!), 
but it has been a great one, 
full of celebrations, blessings and growth.

here are just a handful of happenings from my 2010 ::

  • watched my sister get engaged 
  • became an aunt 
  • participated in my first craft fair 
  • surpassed 300 sales in my etsy shop 
  • celebrated  my second wedding anniversary in toronto 
  • visited chicago twice 
  • learned to crochet
  • did lots of crafting
  • created a home office & crafting space
  • worked a full-time job + ran a business
  • refinished our bedroom dresser
  • made pizza from scratch
  • tried lots of new recipes & experimented 
  • planted an herb garden
  • was a bridesmaid to a dear friend
  • sang at a wedding
  • celebrated 5 other weddings  
  • did my first guest post 
  • trusted God
  • celebrated my doggie's second birthday 
  • got organized

i have a feeling this coming year is going to be a fantastic one.
for one thing, my little sis is getting married!!
i am hoping it will be a year of tremendous growth in all areas of my life,
particularly in my relationship with Jesus & with my budding jewelry business.
here are some goals i am determined to reach in 2011.

  • learn the ukulele
  • learn to sew
  • grow my business like crazy!
  • find more ways to serve at my church & in my community
  • do more craft shows
  • join a bible study
  • work hard toward getting out of credit card debt
  • spend more time with Jesus
  • spend more time with friends
  • grow my blog
  • work on my negative nancy tendency
  • work out regularly (funny how this one comes up every year)
  • embrace entering my late twenties
  • get re-organized
