I’m participating in It’s a Crafty Life’s weekly party, check it out here. It will be a fun exercise in stream-of-consciousness blogging, so hang in there-this may or may not turn out well 😉

1. We had a great time over the holidays with my husband’s family, but I really love coming home to our house. I have put so much of myself into it, I feel proud whenever I walk inside. Plus the cats were still alive, so that was a bonus.

2. I have TONS of projects planned for the coming weeks, but I honestly don’t know if I’ll get to them all! In the works is a major basement renovation plus a craft area for me. I’m so excited about this project, but also scared because it involves some new skills we’ll need to acquire (um, drywall, anyone?)

3. I have no idea how to get rid of our Christmas tree. It occurred to me to ask my husband what we did with the one last year, and he told me we threw it in the woods in our backyard. In response to my horrified expression, he replied, “What? It’s biodegradeable!”

4. I secretly love the snow because I get to show off my Jeep. It’s a ’94 with 333, 8xx miles on it.

When it runs. Ok, we all need a little help sometimes! Don’t hate!

5. I think I will start trying really hard to do weekly meal planning. I’ve tried it before, but for some reason cannot keep up with it. I’m a run-to-the-store-for-whatever-I-need type of person which makes food planning difficult. But, I think it would be a great way to save money and eat better.

6. I am obsessed with the Keurig machine. So much so, that my mother in law bought me the storage drawer for Christmas. Tee hee.

7. I am not a great seamstress, but I’ve grown to love sewing. I’ve made pillows, Christmas stockings, and gifts so far. I’ve got some things up my sleeve for the new year though!

8. I love brunch. I would eat it any time of day. I often host a weekend brunch for my friends.

9. There is nothing I’d rather be doing than crafting or DIYing something for the house and blogging about it. I’m so excited to have found this passion. Connecting with other creative people and learning new ideas has been an amazing side effect 🙂 I am constantly inspired by others.

10. I do not make New Year’s Resolutions. But, if I did, more blogging/networking/fun/projects would be on the list 🙂

    Thank you so much for participating! Who knew link up parties were so hard to start up, ha ha!? Oh well, hopefully it will grow. I am in love with my Keurig also, but I only use it for hot chocolate and tea {and my husband has taken it over to make his coffee}. A lady I work with has one in her classroom. Talk about heaven! 🙂

      Don’t be discouraged! Just keep it up, people will join! I’ve been visiting a lot of blogs and asking people for their participation, have you tried that? How long have you been blogging?

        Well, I’ve only been blogging for about a month, so I’m pretty new and still learning at it. I seem to be afraid to ask people to come join the party, like I would be bothering them. I’m not sure why I think that though, because every time I’ve been asked, I always feel flattered that they would like my participation. 🙂 So I’ll just have to get used to it, I suppose. How long have you been blogging?

        Oh WOW you’re doing great! Very ambitious 🙂 I’ve been blogging for about 7 months and only just now got the guts to start a party. It is very intimidating, but I remember the first time I was asked to join a party I was flattered as well 🙂 So I figure worst case is that they don’t show up. But I always try to become a follower of their blogs as well.

    I got to chuckle through your blog post 🙂 it started with the cats were still alive 🙂 I didn’t know they had the drawer to hold the little coffee containers -I’ve only seen the spinning thingie . Did she get it at like Target or Kohl’s?

      Kathy- I’m not exactly sure where she got it, but I’m thinking it was Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Thanks for stopping by today!
