Year in review, year to come

For a second year running...I'm sick during the holidays. It wasn't the flu this time, but it has kept me in bed for about two weeks, the length of my vacation from work. I've hardly been sick the whole year, but my body picks now, when I had so much planned. Sigh. I do think the stress of trying to get everything done before the break may have contributed.

So let's see, the year in review. Again, I didn't stitch as much as I would have liked to. I did finish Matt's Magnificent Wizard and get it framed, which is a MAJOR accomplishment for me. That's a load off my mind. I also finished Santa's Village and a few exchanges.

I've decided to start branching out and try new crafts. I've taken Logan to a few craft days at Michael's, and I want to take a few classes myself. I bought some watercolors, and I want to try that this coming year. I'd planning to do it over the break, but that didn't work out. I have this yearning to create pretty things that I never fully satisfy it. I guess that's a good thing because it keeps me going. I think that's why I work on my yard during the summer so much, despite it being grueling -- I'm making pretty things for my home. I wish I were better at interior decorating and had more money for it; that would be a good outlet too.

So, my goals for next year are to finish TW's Day and get it and Night framed. I also want to try different crafts, get out of my comfort zone. Oh, there's also the lose-weight thing, as always. I'm looking forward to exercising again, strangely enough.

Anyone else trying something new in the new year?
