Creating vision boards and self-exploration

While working and learning about setting goals and building personal action plans, I learned about vision boards.  I find them quite useful as motivators.  If you haven’t tried one you should.

Hello to 2015 and Goodbye to 2014

Happy New Year!  Wishing you the best in 2015-1

Wrapping up the Holiday Season with reflection moments.


2014 was a very good year wherein we enjoyed major life events: Our oldest daughter’s wedding, relocation to Vegas and setting up our new home, cross country driving trip, nephew’s wedding in New Orleans, Vegas family reunion this Christmas. Wow! How did we get through all of this.

Craft wise–2014 was very productive. 60 projects were completed. The majority of these projects were sewing projects (clothes, home decor, and toys); crochet and knitting projects. Many of these were previously shared on this blog or on my Craftsy and Ravelry sites. The highlight of my sewing include two projects. The first is the hop scotch mat.

And the second is my quilted holly garland. holly garland

Now, it’s January and a new year. It is time to start planning future crafting projects and generating a list of projects to work on. There will definitely be some mending. I want to work on a few more hooded bath towels. Definitely, there will be a few more aprons. My youngest will need a couple of scrub tops and perhaps a pair of cargo pants. Other than sewing I have several embroidery projects I’d like to get to. I’m also thinking about a couple of quilted, knitted or crocheted lap blankets. And to wrap up the year, I’d like to make a few holiday decorations.

Ohh! Getting excited and wanting to start! Happy Crafting!
