A Few Things on my 2014 Bucket List...

Hello there!!
I have been thinking a lot about things that I would like to learn or improve upon in the new year.  I don't like to make resolutions, because honestly, I never keep them.  Instead, I am making a small goal list.  Some of the items on the list are crafty, some are health related, and others are general self improvement goals.

Here are a few...
In 2014, I'd like to...

Learn to Knit!
I've always wanted to learn how, and I've purchased a few needles and some yarn, but I always get discouraged.  I want to make 2014 the year when I really learn how to knit successfully enough to complete a project. 

Learn Modern Style Calligraphy!
I took several calligraphy classes in highschool, and I do know the basics, but the style that I was taught was more of an old English style.  I love the look of the more scripty, handwriting style of calligraphy and am so excited to learn!

I've been doing some research and came across book reviews  "Modern Calligraphy" by Molly Suber Thorpe.   Needless to say, this book when right on my wishlist!

Experiment more with Watercolors!
I absolutely love the watercolor trend, and in the new year, I hope to learn some proper watercolor techniques that I can incorporate into my papercrafting.

And now for a few non-crafty hopes...

In 2013, I started the Couch to 5k program.  I got discouraged after a knee injury, and just stopped.  I was making decent progress for someone who is not a runner, and while I was doing it, I loved it.  It is my hope that 2014 will be the year that I finally run a 5k.

Read more!
I have really been enjoying my books lately, and I thought it would be fun to add a reading goal to my 2014 list.  I have been using Goodreads a lot and I love seeing what my friends are reading.  Feel free to add me! :)

That's it for now... I am excited for the new year!!  I hope your 2014 is wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by!! :)

I love your list Audrey! I am totally going to come up with a list for myself, as I'm determined to move forward and make 2014 awesome, instead of just wishing!

A good friend of mine is a knitting designer and she also teaches knitting. I'm pretty sure she and I need to hop in her Miata and cruise down to FL where she can give you and me private knitting lessons!!! :)
