It’s almost the new year, and that means it is time for some resolutions. If you’ve read my post about 2014 Stitch Alongs, then you know I’m planning on doing a bunch of stitching and cutting way, way back on my stash purchasing.
I’ve been thinking a bit more about other crafty sorts of resolutions I’d like to set for 2014, and I’ve come up with a short list:
- sew a couple of new purses
- finish the 2012 block-a-month quilt from Craftsy
- try some more knitted colourwork
- tackle double knitting
- finish up at least my mom’s stocking and one other project from my Turtle Trot list (I’ll be posting that on January 10th)
When it comes to non-crafty resolutions, I’m going to be getting a little bit of help. I’ll be working my way through 100 Days of A New Year, and excellent guided ebook from Jennifer Tankersley of ListPlanIt (a great site for keeping and making lists).
100 Days of A New Year guides you through the start of the year, day by day, and helps you to set and achieve goals. The activities in the book are nicely supplemented by 75 lists and planning pages, as well as a 60-day free trial for ListPlanIt. There is also a Facebook page where you can connect with other people working through the book.
So, what kind of activities are we talking about? Well, 100 Days starts off by getting you to set up a navigator (notebook) to organize all your goals and plans. From there it moves on examining goals by life area, creating time-lines for achieving your goals, taking deep looks at debts and savings, and so on. And, best of all, every Saturday is set aside to get caught up. (Hey, we all fall behind on things once in a while. Having one day a week to get back on track is an excellent idea.) Jennifer has even scheduled things like Valentine’s Day preparations and Easter celebrations, along with links to some great Pinterest boards for inspiration.
The ebook is only US$8.00, but for a short time you can get it for only US$5 by using the code 100DAYS3OFF. And, if you’d like to see what it is about before purchasing, check out this preview. If you do decide to get it, let me know. I’d love to work through some of it with someone. 😉
And, guess what! I have two free copies of the book to give away. Just leave a comment between now and midnight on the 31st (EST), and you will be entered.
