I know, I know, I know that you guys are sick of reading about what everyone is planning to do in 2015.... and this post is all about what I'm going to be doing in 2015. SORRYYYYY.
But before we jump into 2015 let's backtrack to one hot summer day in 2014. I was bored at a Hank 3 concert (technically it was before Hank 3 played) and I definitely wasn't entertained by the drunks wandering around getting wild, so I decided to be productive with my time. I whipped out my notebook and made a list of things I wanted to accomplish in my "sewing life" and probably got a bunch of strange looks from the drunks, but whatevs. Looking at the long list was kind of daunting, life is too short and there is so much to learn, right? Then I thought about past goals and what worked and didn't. The times I was most successful were when I was specific about what needed to be done and when a time frame was clearly noted. I decided to use the list and apply it to my 2015 plans.
This year I would like to create a sewing, knitting, or quilting challenge for myself each month. It might be something "easy" like sewing a lapped zipper (I've never sewn one!), more complicated like fitting pants, or anything else that will get me out of my comfort zone. Some of you are probably rolling your eyes and thinking, "fuckin duhhhhh, that's what you should be doing anyways," but sometimes I need motivation and a deadline to stay on track. Knowing that my to do list will be broken down into manageable chunks, and the fact that you guys will be holding me accountable, is definitely going to help my productivity.
Shortly, there will be a blog post up on the January challenge, but I have no hard plans for the rest of the year, just ideas from the list. I'd love to hear any suggestions from you guys though, if you have any! Comment here, e-mail me, or contact me on Twitter or Instagram. And if any of you want to join in with my twelve challenges or make your own twelve challenges please let me know :)
This is going to be a fun year. Cheers to 2015!
