Happy 2013 to you all! My love of even numbers will be tested this year, but my Dad points out that all the digits add up to '6' and that's my FAVE number, so here's cheers to a good year for even and odd lovers!
My big ideas for the year have been swelling around creating and reusing, and my first 'gung ho' challenge idea was (very ambitiously) to: blog everyday, and create something everyday. Yes, I think big. But the reality of being a first time Mama, with the messiest (and hot in summer, cold in winter) sewing room and plenty of Real Life errands to run around and do daily... the reality of this means that blogging and sewing/creating something and photographing it everyday is just not for me, let alone anyone.
These are a few of the realistic and fun ideals I'll try and live by in my daily life this year:
Avoid new products
Make first, buy secondhand second
Make something every week
Write everyday in someway (blog here or just write in my journal/diary)
Plan ahead for purchases
My first attempt and last purchase of 2012 of 'getting back' into this was buying a second hand car seat on ebay for Baby Darling. YAY!
And today, my first post of 2013, is just a simple ideal for me, not a big unacheivable challenge, just a way of daily life. This post took me since 9am to 1.30pm to write, in between parenting, helping my dad on ebay, writing our monthly To Do List and cleaning some of the house post holiday. My life is so different from this time last year. This time last year, I didn't even know I was pregnant!
I'm off to the shops, see you all around here (and your blogging space) for another great year! xoxo
