Light Reading



I'm taking the day to do a little light reading and take in the inspiration.
Because I totally need to update my inspiration board. I haven't changed anything out in awhile.
I also plan on taking some pictures before I lose the light.
See ya tomorrow!

That's what I'm up to lately.

Dreaming...of what countries I would love to visit.
                    of  finally finishing the blanket I started some time last year. It's almost done!
                    of what I could make when I start using my sewing machine.
                    of learning new things.
And de-cluttering:

This is just one pile of stuff I need to go through.

Goals for 2013....

And a look back on last year's goals...

Here they are:
 
* There was better blog prep until there wasn't. The plan was to have them ready to go at least a week in advance.
 
* I did try new patterns but not as many as I would have liked.
 
* Unsuccessful! I never once took the sewing machine out.
 
* I did take more pictures the only bummer was that they were all on my phone. Not what I was aiming for.
 
Honestly I feel like my goals were lacking. I wasn't really trying to push myself.
 
Here are this year's:

My Word for the Year

The yellow part was supposed to say 2013, but I was running low on ink.

What a great workbook to turned out to be! I got to reflect on last year and recall my word for 2012. It was Delight. It was a great word but I definitely didn't take the time to put it into practice after a certain point. I totally let it fade away.

My word for 2013 is as you saw above: Emerge
e·merged, e·merg·ing, e·merg·es
  1. To rise from or as if from immersion: Sea mammals must emerge periodically to breathe.
  2. To come forth from obscurity: new leaders who may emerge.
  3. To become evident: The truth emerged at the inquest.
  4. To come into existence.

I think taping this word throughout my house will be the best way for me to keep up with my word this year.
The possibilities for this New Year are exciting, I'm ready for you 2013!
