Hey crafty friends! I know – you thought I fell off the face of the earth right!? Nope, I’m still here, but did horribly on my craft goals for 2022. Hubby and I accepted a new position in our township sports program, and it ate up sooo much of our time. We love helping the kids, but are really trying to find a better balance this go round. I hope my 2023 crafty goals are realistic and attainable.
I don’t post about it often but in addition to my cups, scrapbook and cross stitch I also diamond paint. If you haven’t heard of diamond painting before here is a good beginner tutorial. It’s a similar concept to cross stitch, but uses drills and you place them on a sticky canvas. I currently have five unfinished paintings. There is a Disney castle, winter barn scene, two supernatural ones, and a Neuschwanstein castle. My goal is to finish all five this year. That would free up an entire drawer in my Alex set and an entire shelf in my raskog cart. Going forward I would then like to do one painting at a time to reduce supply storage.
Scrapbooking – oh where to begin. I did abysmal last year at getting anything done. I honestly think I got less than a dozen layouts completed. I also failed at not buying any new collections. I didn’t do horribly (I think I bought four), but still. I have more than I’ll ever need. This year I want to use up at least two collections and make at minimum 12 layouts. I know that isn’t much, but it’s at least one per month.
Cross Stitch – my first craft passion. I don’t really have a goal for this this year. I’ve found every goal process I’ve tried to make with stitching just kills my mojo. I’m going to just go with…as the mood strikes.
I also have a book goal for the year, but that could be a post all it’s own…haha
Please feel free to check in on me – keep my accountable to these goals – kick my butt – etc. Have you made any 2023 crafty goals, and if so, how do you keep yourself motivated to get them done?
