What are you going to do in 2013? (part 1)

Every end of year is the same thing. Half of me is filled up with excitement and hopes as another year is about to start and I feel fresh, full of energy to try on new things and to stick with old promises of eating less chocolate, have more time for myself, etc... The other half panics. I panic at the idea that another year is over, that my birthday is close (January 9th) and I am not getting any younger and that I am not even close to where I imagined I would be in my life & career when I was 18 years old.

I believe in new year resolutions, simply because I believe in lists. I have my daily to do list, my weekly, my monthly diary... So why not having one for the whole year? The problem is that I hardly ever remember to look at these any other time other than January and December... Which makes it hard to follow through. Well, this time I thought of turning my 2013 resolutions into a crafty post in the attempt that it will make it easier for me. And, maybe, it might help you too. :)

Resolution # 1:
Spend less time worrying and more time making things

*** Beautiful clock made of recycled wooden pallets *** Use stamps to print the numbers and scout charity shops, flea markets or car boot sales for vintage clock hands. Add a little bit of colour to one of your pieces and it will make all the difference!
Resolution # 2:
Have a more positive intake in life

Get a couple of steel washers, write your message with a Sharpie or any other permanent marker then pop it in the oven for 20 minutes. Add some charms and a beautiful chain and voilĂ !

    1. Hi Paula, I know exactly what you mean... Right now I am struggling not only with TIME but SPACE! Living in a tiny London flat, there is just not enough room to keep all my DIY projects =)
