Month #2: February 2015 New Year’s Resolutions
Just Do It Resolution: Design and make
more lots more jewelry. Update: I’ve started working with annealed steel and I love making my own findings and chain. For my first “Sneak Peek Saturday”, here is my new (used – from Craigslist) Lortone tumbler to work harden and polish my jewelry findings I make from wire, along with some of the wire I’ve been playing with for practice.
Just Do It Resolution: Bring out my new line of dog tag bracelets. Update: Here is a peek of my first two bracelets. The chain is handmade from vintage elements and handmade wire elements. I have to say that I am in love with them. They are lightweight and very feminine.
Just Do It: Do More Custom Work. Update: I need to nail down what I offer and how much I charge for it. Still flying by the seat of my pants every time I get a custom order.
Just Do It Resolution: Walk the big park 5 days a week with Winston and HT (the Handsome Texan). Update: Right on schedule. I can’t ever say “no” to Winston’s “please take me to the park” face.
Just Do It Resolution: Pitch my jewelry to magazines/media. As soon as my new line of bracelets comes out, I will be pitching like crazy. Update: Have to finish my new collection first.
Just Do It Resolution: Amp up my estate sale attendance. Update: I hit at least 10 estate sales in February and had lots of fun. The HT is always happy to go with me because I look at old tools for my jewelry making and he LOVES old tools~
Just Do It Resolution: Do a year-round garden and use the veggies and herbs. Update: I’ve been making green juices from the parsley, ginger and kale in my garden. The HT just planted heirloom tomato seeds and basil seeds today and we have had TWO heirloom tomatoes this month from a volunteer plant.
Just Do It Resolution: Post a weekly blog. Update: I’m hoping to have four posts by the end of the month.
Just Do It Resolution: Practice daily positive affirmations. Update: I’m actually doing really well with this one. I have a list of affirmations that work for me and I love saying them. One has a very bad swear word in it and it makes me laugh every time.
Just Do It Resolution: Family History. Update: The HT and I are still sorting and scanning old photos. Our big family history trip is in September. I posted this picture on Facebook on Friday and reconnected with some people I went to 2nd grade with – it was so amazing. After 3rd grade my Dad was transferred from Marion, Illinois, to Phoenix so I spent most of my growing up years in Maryvale, AZ. I was surprised how many kids I remembered from 2nd grade and it was nice to be remembered as well.
P.S. – I would love to hear how you are rocking 2015. Drop me a line and we can compare progress notes. It’s so nice to have support besties~
