It is time once again to make a few ambitious goals for the new year. First, a review of my 2016 resolutions
“Go through all 21 patterns…” was an insane resolution. there was no way I was getting through even one of them. That book is a little intimidating, so I will adjust my resolution to learning five new patterns from the book, Crochet to Calm. This book was a gift for Christmas and the projects are small, simple, and colorful.
“Take one class…” should have been an easy task. I found a lot of the classes offered take place during work hours. Very recently, I walked into a Michaels craft store and found they offer some classes on Monday evenings. That being said, this resolution will stay on the table!
“Open up an Etsy store…” is actually in progress. Although I didn’t make any sales online, I did sell my products through close networks. I am currently tweaking patterns and adding a personal touch. I am hoping to have all the kinks smoothed out so my Etsy shop has a smooth launch.
“Post … once a week” simply didn’t happen. I don’t think I gave myself a realistic goal given my time constraints. Going into 2017, I will post once a month.
A quick review:
- Learn 5 new patterns from Crochet to Calm.
- Take one class.
- Open the Etsy store.
- Blog once a month.
Let’s be honest, I didn’t technically complete any of my resolutions. After reflecting on them, I am still confident that I am making progress. I am very excited to start creating, learning, and selling more in 2017. Thank you to everyone who supported me last year.
