2011 in review.....

.....it's been a good year.
  1. We moved to Melbourne, and survived. 
  2. I drove to Adelaide and back too many times to count, and survived.
  3. We lived withoutout our *stuff for 6 months, and survived.
*furniture and things

Are you sensing a theme here? Yep. We survived! Survival is important. Certainly basic, but neccessary. I am hoping for a little more from 2012. I have done a little blog hopping today and already there are people in blogland flagging their 2012 goals, and ticking off their 2011 goals. Sometimes I marvel at bloggers' bravery in putting themselves out there, but if you don't aim high I guess you may never get off the ground. (Gosh this post is hard to write! So many edits. So many cliches!!! I wonder if I really talk like that in real life?)

So, goals for 2012


  1. Blog more often. (I love this record of my life and what I'm doing! I loved blogtober and the challenge to blog daily, I learnt quite a bit from doing it. I would like to blog every day, but don't think I will be able to do that. Couldn't even do it in October! Ideally I'd like to blog more each month than I did in that month in 2011.)
  2. Finish the quilt tops I have lying around.
  3. Make six quilts. (This year I made 3, so double that would be good.)
  4. Make things for my home and family. I really want to have a handmade Christmas in 2012. I got close this year. I'd like to get closer next year!
Four goals, enough I think. I have lots more ideas in my head and also more personal goals that I will record elsewhere. Roll on 2012! Let's get started!!!

Oh. And Happy New Year to you all!

YAY Kris!

See you n 2012.

Even if you don't follow your goals strickly I recon at the end of 2012 you will still be smiling lots!

I won't be putting myself out there this year I think I am just going to go with the flow this year not make to many plans or have to many expectations about what I am going to do and what I am going to achieve. That way whatever comes will be unexpected.

Goals?...oh way too hard...you are good to put 4 down...so glad you survived...I think the 6 months with only basic stitchy stuff was a definite achievement!...

Life holds no promises
as to what will come your way.
You must search for your own ideals
and work towards reaching them.
Happy New Year to you and your dear family, Kris!

Sounds like some great goals to me! Happy New Year to you and yours!

Shay said...

I like your goals Kris. I have similar ones for this year too. And like you I'm going to try to have a more active year where Im present in my own life rather than just hanging on and surviving the year!

Good luck with your goals this year. I particularly love goal 1 as one thing in 2011 i enjoyed was reading others blogs including yours. They always inspire me seeing the creative things people come up with. Happy 2012 Hugs MnM and family
