Craft or personal - not just resolutions, but goals, milestones, accomplishments, and events you would like to see happen before 2015! :)

I started this mitten advent calendar on the 26th and will just keep going until I'm done. I have six red mittens done so far.

I want to then get started on this tree skirt

These light bulbs will be the ornaments that I will give as a gift to my kids next yule. They will each get a set of five.

These are German ornaments that were on my fathers and grandmothers trees every year. I want to make a set of these this year for my home and then make five more sets as a gift to my kids. We are big on gnomes in this house.

I want to make a few (maybe dozens in the long run) of these snowflakes. If you dip them in liquid starch and let dry they hang perfectly from the front windows.

Ok If I have the time I will be making parts of this wreath but this is a big maybe. This is 12 separate patterns that you knit to put together into one beautiful wreath that I would gladly hang all year long.

I also love these knitted paper chains but they may have to wait for next years projects

On top of ALL of this I have to also make yarn. That is actually the top priority but this is my wish list to insert with the yarn production.

Other than that I just want to relax and recharge after a horrible year .... actually an escalation of a few years that just got worse and worse. My whole year is about rebuilding myself and my family into what we used to be and more.

I want to enjoy life more and not worry so much! One of my goals is to have a quarterly family activity - this is a "big" activity not just family game or movie nights but to actually go do something new in our area.  December we went to the symphony and loved it - looking for more activities like that!

Do you use ravelry a lot? I always wondered how the site is for loom people. I love it for knit, crochet, and handspinning. Also have you considered doing youtube videos? I know you can build a following this way.

I use ravelry quite a bit, and always put in my projects (as much as I remember to do lol). I'm not cmofortable enough to make my own videos yet, I think that's a goal I'll try for in a few years :) IF you want to add me on ravelry my profile is: http://www.ravelry.com/people/kardecnelis
