    1. Thanks hun! I appreciate the support. I’m wishing I hadn’t set some of these goals now, but it’s still a good way to keep me trying new things and keeping my mind active.

      1. Oh I know what you mean! I’ve recently looked at my 2013 plan created 3 months ago and cringe…what on earth was I thinking???? Exactly as you say, it does keep you trying new things…

  1. Wow, my plan is to open a shop on etsy, too. And I do art, lol We do have a few things in common besides the color pink. Nice to know what some people think are my “eccentric” things are shared by other people as a norm.. My thought about them is “they are just fun!!!”

  2. I like the idea of having such a list! Posting it makes you accountable for it too. But now that we are so far in 2013 it’s not worth making one, isn’t it (finding excuses…). Maybe 14 in 2014?

  3. This is such a great list! I love how your blog is full of energy! I’ll be following your knitting – and other – adventure! And thanks for following my blog 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
