ready, set, goals!


I love pinterest.
I'm actually pretty obsessed with it. {when I remember that it exists, that is.}

But my problem is that I pin something and just assume I'll come back to it later.
and then I don't.
for a looooong time.
Especially the crafty things I pin.

Sooooo, I'm setting myself some goals.
I'm breaking it down by semester, since that's how my life works right now.

At first, I wanted to add everything on my craft board to my goal list. Then I realized that's not very practical.
Come on, Katie. Don't set yourself up to fail before you even start!

So, I decided for now, I'll try one project per month. easy peasy, right?!
Let's hope so!

September
A camera strap cover. Suuuuuper easy to make, I already have the stuff and I made one for my sister last year. I just need to take the 10 minutes and make one for my sweet Cami!

October
A college friend of mine makes AMAZING hobo bags, and MONTHS ago, she lent me her pattern. I need one of these in my life. asap.

November


yoga pants from a tshirt. too good to be true!


December


I realize this is the 'non-sewing' wildcard, but we really need some wall art around these parts. And being the cheapest person I know, I'm going to have to make it if its ever going to exist. So its on my list...


So here's to hoping I can cross it all off my list...and hopefully more! Anyone else making goals this fall?

I know you can do it! And while you're at it...seriously (no really, seriously!) make me a camera strap too! I want one real bad and gots no skills. ;)

I'll pay for shipping...and of course material. hehe

I am the exact same way!!! My friend and I have also decided to actually MAKE some things, rather than just pin them and forget about them.
