Year In Review: 2011

As usual, I didn't get through much of anything I said I'd do this year (seen in this post). All the things I did manage to do are crossed off.

crafty stuff
  1. complete at least 10 knitted items by December
  2. learn to properly use the knitting machine I bought in 2008
  3. knit something wearable besides an accessory
  4. knit through my yarn stash seen here
  5. make something man-friendly that isn't a scarf or fingerless gloves
  6. re-learn crochet
  7. sew more often using my fabric stash (it's HUGE)
  8. hand sketch more often and add to my portfolio
  9. visit more art exhibits
  10. blog more...period
general stuff
  1. land a permanent, fulltime design position
  2. travel outside of the Tri-State area when I can
  3. stay away from the scissors and let my hair grow back to BSL (bra strap length)
  4. get my driver's permit
  5. socialize more often
  6. ♥ be happy & enjoy life ♥
Wow... Guess that means I'll just roll these over into 2012 and not make a new list. LOL. What are your goals for 2012 or will you just enjoy the year as it happens?


  1. I plan to try new pin up and twist styles for the next six months. {No afro puffs} A trip to Africa by the end of the year and get to NY during fashion week for the IFB Conference in the spring or fall.

  2. Those are great goals! A trip to Africa sounds amazing. I'll definitely be looking out for that post on your blog.
