January Goals & December Recap


January Goals

//  This month I am going to be giving you a little peek into our home.  Every Thursday I will have a new room to show you.  I will be starting with the master bedroom next week!

//  I will try to post 5 days a week (Mon-Fri).  I have an idea written down for every day this month, I just have to get them written!

//  I will continue posting outfit posts every Monday, and TRY to have new artwork/DIYs every Friday.  I've really been slacking on my artwork lately

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

December Recap

//  I really got into the Christmas spirit and starting making a few new bulbs for the tree.  I painted dorky bulbs for my hubby, made a super quick Mickey Mouse bulb for my daughter, a keepsake ornament with my daughter's hospital hat and bracelet from the day she was born, and made a fun wedding ornament.  I was an ornament making machine! haha

//  I made my first piece of art in months.... and it was part of a friend's proposal!!  No pressure there!

//  I had a lot of problems with my migraines last month so there were a bunch of days when I didn't even change out of my sweats, but I did manage to change into "real clothes" for a few days.  I had a nice night out with my girl's,  threw on some leopard print to celebrate a birthday, and shared a whole week's worth of outfits!
Happy New Year everyone!

  8. Thanks so much Jessica! I was having issues getting your blog button to go into the same area as the other buttons without a "grab code". I used a code for all of the other ones so I had to put yours into a different category as a picture and add a link back. I couldn't figure out any other way to do it. I'm still learning! lol!! I'm going to keep trying to mess with it tho. Hope you had a great New Year's!!

  10. Ahh I gotcha! hmm I wonder how I can help? For my buttons I just use the html code for an image. see if this works, copy and paste this code under Birch Juice's button. just take out the asterisk's (there are two)

  17. My husband was definitely really excited about the dorky bulbs. haha! I'm a big dork too so they were kind of for me too...but shhh don't tell. LOL

  18. Thanks so much! I've got an idea for every day this month. I'm just hoping I can keep up! haha

  19. You are so talented!! I consider myself to be fairly creative and artistic, but I have absolutely no talent for drawing, painting etc. haha I'm always in awe of people who can do that. I'm hoping to post more often this year and to get posts lined up in advance, but I still have a little work to do there! Happy New Year :)

  22. Thank you! I always love seeing other people's houses so I thought I would give it a try too. The struggle is keeping my house clean enough for pictures. haha! My (Almost) 2 year old doesn't make that easy. lol
