2010

Last year I had the one fuzzy resolution--Do more of what I should and less of what I shouldn't.

I think that worked out pretty well for me. I thought of it often throughout the year, tried to make some better decisions some of the time, and not worry about it the rest of the time.

But I'm changing it up again this year. Still trying to be simple, but a little more specific. I have two.

1. Do Less. One way I thought of to measure this is that I will try to sit on my couch every day. I think sometimes months go by and I never sit down unless we have company over. I'm not sure what I'm going to cut, but I'm going to try.

2. Buy no crafting supplies in 2010. I will only use what I have in the house. I'm kind of excited about this, I have so many things that I want to use "someday" so that will be this year. Two caveats: I can buy thread, tape, glue, the sort of things that you have to have in order to make anything else, when I run out. I can buy old kits at Goodwill if they are SO cute and amazing that I know I will start them that night. Like the dino ornaments. It would be too hard and sad and silly to have to pass those up.

So that's it! There are, of course, always other things that I'm thinking about doing, or trying to do, but the only two I'm calling resolutions are these.

Don't deny yourself anything when it comes to crafting, or any other form of self expression. Follow your heart. You have a great heart.

I like these two. Does number two preclude your friends from getting you crafty things?

Crafty things always accepted. :)

Don't take a drive west of Wichita a few hours this year. I stopped at a place on my way to Toronto Lake one weekend to hike. I thought of you and Linda and Jo etc. I will not tempt you by telling you the name. Just don't make the drive.

Sounds good. I've thought about a resolution like #2, just don't buy anything in general. But I don't want to commit...
