Resolution #1: Learn to Sew

So I think I’m off to a pretty good start. About a month ago, I bought a singer sewing machine. I’ve never taken a lesson, though I’m signed up for one and CAN’T WAIT! It’s this Saturday.

In the mean time, I’ve been playing around with the machine a bit to get the hang of it. I’m in the process of creating either an apron or a dress. It’s still TBD, depending on how it all comes together.

If you know me, then you’d know that I have never been good at following directions when creating things. Weather it is in the kitchen, putting together a piece of furniture or when crafting. Which is why my apron/dress has no direction. I’m rethinking this for future creations. In the mean time, this is my work in process.

And the worst blogger of the year award goes to…….

I know, I know. Last April, I posted that my goal was to be a better blogger. Well, I think it’s pretty obvious that I’ve failed miserably. So to kick start 2010, I have made a few New Year’s resolutions and by writing them here and telling people about them I am committing myself to actually accomplish them. Right? Right. Lucky, most of my goals are centered on Hello Cupcake. This should be fun!

2010 New Year’s Resolutions:
- Learn how to sew and incorporate that into Hello Cupcake

- Participate in a craft show: I think this one may be the hardest. I will have to build up a collection of work and then get accepted into a show. I’ve already got my sights set on the December Renegade Craft Fair

- Practice Bikram Yoga: My goal is 2-3 times per week. There’s a woman at my studio that went for 365 consecutive days! A year of yoga without a break. If she can do that, I can surely do it a few times a week!

Big goal of 2010!
