New Years....resolutions?

Okay, let's talk about the whole New Year's Resolutions idea. A new year = a new beginning, right? Time to turn over a new leaf, time to try harder, time to finally fix...whatever. I am an inveterate list maker, so NYR's are more an opportunity to write things down than an organized attack on what I see as my shortcomings.

I did put a lot of things on the list.
How many?
22, to be exact.
These are all organized into sub-catagories like:
"New Stuff," "Art Stuff," Home Stuff," and "Personal Stuff."

Here's the deal:
I'll tell you some of my NYR's and you tell me some of yours.
I am so curious to find out what motivates other people...what other folks want to change about themselves, their habits, their life....

A few of my NYR's are....
Learn Diving...on my list for about 3 years now...
Go on a Bicycle Tour...why haven't I done this yet??
Be frugal again....which ties in with
Pay off debts as much as possible
Make art website....about frikkin' time
Dress better....can I be more than a jeans and sweater girl?
Do more new things...because I rely on the familiar WAY TOO MUCH
Make some new friends...because all of my 'old' ones have scattered to the winds

Okay, your turn.
If your're reading this, click on the 'comments' below and tell me your NYR's. Feel free to be anonymous....but satisfy my curiosity!

P.S. I love comments. Posted by Picasa

Happy New Year...and some knitting stuff.

2007. I have so many New Year's Resolutions that I had to create sub-catagories for them. Well, okay...they're not really 'resolutions'....more like, things I really want to do that there are no reasons why I haven't done them yet, except for pure laziness or fear, depending on the activity.
I'm tempted to go into details, but I just think it would be....um....embarassing.

On a brighter note, here is a foxy set of Christmas gifts I finished on time! (I realize that I'm linked to some bloggers out there as a knitter, yet I never talk about/post about my knits....) This set is for, in order from left to right: Brother-in-law, Sister, and their Daughter. Get the joke? Niece's hat is a mixture of the parents because of her genetic combination.
I am so funny and clever....
Sadly, only Neice's hat fit! The other two were too small, as I'd judged the sizes based on my own head and, yikes....I guess I have a small skull.

Gift for my sister for her birthday. She is a much more prolific knitter than I am, so I am giving quite a bit of my stash to her. I'm feeling the need to unload some stuff, clear out my closets, clean up my studio and get......current. Too much old stuff laying around, stuffed in drawers and boxes. Out with the old, in with the new. And what will be the new? All of the art I must make for my shows this year, and my studio is a cluttered mess......
