It’s 2008 Already?

With all that’s been going on in my life lately, 2008 has snuck up on me. So, 5 days late, I’m thinking about the year ahead and what I would like to do with it. I’ve read other blog posts about resolutions and I think I should set some down, too. It’s easier to get where you’re going if you have an idea of where that is.

  1. Continue to make changes and choices that are healthier for me and the environment.
    • I am going to make myself a set of canvas grocery bags, to cut down on plastic waste.
    • I am going to continue to try to clean my home with natural ingredients. If you haven’t already, I recommend that you pick up a copy of Michael De Jong’s Clean: The Humble Art of Zen-Cleansing. It’s a wonderful, affordable little book.
    • I will try to use more recycled packaging when I ship my Etsy orders.
    • Check out Broomhuggers great eco-friendly suggestions for 2008.
  2. Reach 100 Etsy sales.
  3. Develop a time management plan.
    • I have never been particularly good at managing my time. I stay up too late and, consequently, get up too late. (Or get up early because I have to and spend the day exhausted.) I know this directly affects how much I am able to accomplish. I have a lot of personal and professional things I want to accomplish this year, and I already know I can’t do that if I continue to sally forth without a plan. So this year, I’m going to make a plan and follow it.
  4. Finish outstanding 2007 projects before committing myself to new 2008 projects.
    • KT’s bag.
    • Sheetal’s bag.
    • Grandpa’s quilt.
    • Double wedding ring quilt.
    • That school stuff I don’t like to think about.

  1. I just ordered a copy of the Clean book. Glad you posted it! With all my creatures, I need to be using safer products.

  2. Best wishes on your resolutions! I appreciate the environmental focus. I’ve found a whole bundle of canvas bags at thrift stores. I keep on hung on my back door nob and another in the car. That way, I seldom leave home without one! 🙂

  3. sounds like good resolutions, time management…think i’ll add that to mine as well.. i started a new blog for mine 🙂
