GOALS : December 2012

I'm a big fan of goal setting.  For me, it's been really help to first decide what I want and then create mini check points to achieving something greater. Success or failure, you learn something along the way, so, why not?  Here begins a monthly feature, entitled GOALS, to be posted near the beginning of the month and revisited at the end.  I got this idea from another of my favorite blogs, Stitch & Hammer.  If you want to share a post of your own monthly goals I would love to take part in encouraging and holding you to them!

1. A DIY on the blog this month.
2. A restful, mini-vacation to my hometown (Chicago), with lots of family, friends, exploring and photos.
3. Old clothes and unused belongings to Goodwill, asap.
4. Get all of my holiday orders out perfectly and on time.
5. Send someone a letter... in the mail!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

  1. Thanks for the comments on my blog. I LOVE the jewelry that you make. And a fellow Clevelander too!

    1. Well, great work deserves a shout out every now and then. So, thanks again for working so hard at your beautiful blog/photography/illustrations! Thank you for the compliments on the jewelry, as well, it's been a fun ride for me! And yes, I am a Clevelander, by way of Chicago. AND my good buddy, Suzie, went to CIA with you too. She noticed when I repinned an image of a studio space on Pinterest (that happened to be yours) a while back. I got a text later that day: "THAT'S my friend, Cheryl's studio!!!" She speaks so highly of you :) Small world!! Anyway, thanks for the inspiring posts. Please keep it up! (Sorry it took me so long to respond, I just figured out how to respond to a specific comment, HA!)
