July has arrived (in calendar month rather than summer spirit) which means we're half way through 2012 and therefore it's been six months since I made my New Year's To Do List. I thought this half way mark might be a good time to review my hopeful little list.
1. Save - it may only be a little bit every month but this is probably the most successful resolution - the promise of New York in December is definitely the driving force.
2. Start a regular exercise regime - I'm not going to lie, this lasted about six weeks. After 3 months of zilch activity, a burst of enthusiasm for exercise ignited again around the end of May but that soon fizzled out. However, July has brought a new vigour for getting fit and loosing weight. Mitch has given me some ideas to boost my motivation so I've haven't quite given up on this one just yet.
3. Make one craft project every month - this was actually going well up until April but in May it all fell apart when I started a project which totally failed. Still trying to figure out what to do with it...however, rather than let this failed project ruin a third of my New Year To Do List, June saw a revival of crafting activity, none of it's finished as yet but at least I'm being creative again. Here's a little sneaky peak at my half finished/on-going endeavours.
fabric scraps idea
my first ever knitting project - it'll be a scarf when it's done (a very fat scarf, we all learn from our mistakes)
I made a simple shift dress which doesn't look like much at present but I want to experiment with some fabric paints stencils and/or printing
