New Year, New Resolutions

Hi everyone!  I hope all of you had a great holiday!  Mine was really good, but I'm ready to tackle 2014... and here's what I'm hoping to accomplish this year:

Twitter and Instagram.

Heaven help me, I'm going to figure both of these things out.  I think I get the gist of Twitter, but Instagram is a bit of a mystery to me.  And I'm pretty tech-savvy, for the most part, so it is driving me crazy that I don't know how to use Instagram.  It's gonna happen this year.

If you're on Instagram, feel free to follow me.  And I'll follow you... because I'm only following like, two people right now and it's downright sad.

Decluttering.  Like, a lot.

I'm going to start something I'm going to call 'Declutter 365'.  I have to find one thing a day to get rid of, every day of 2014.  And if I bring something new into the house, something else has to go.  We have so much stuff and IT HAS. TO. STOP.

Financial awesomeness, yo.

I love budgets and binders and personal finance whatnot.  I plan on setting some lofty financial goals this year, some I might share with you so you can keep me accountable.  I might even make some pie charts... IT'S GOING TO BE AMAZE-BALLS.

Better photography.

I am going to figure out ISO and aperture and lighting and whatnot.  I'm also going to work on staging for photos too.  I have such blog envy when I see other people's posts that have pretty pictures.  I can do this, I'm sure of it.

Projects aplenty.

Last year was such a blogging wash... my pregnancy was a ridiculous amount of terrible-ness.  Now that it's over, I have a crazy amount of motivation to create and craft.  You shall all be witness to the plethora of projects I have in store.  BEHOLD MY CREATIONS OF HOT GLUE AND SEQUINS.

So that's what's on my mind on this New Year's day.  I am so excited about another new year and can't wait to share everything with you!

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Put Instagram on your smart/iPhone. Create an online account on the computer. Upload a photo from the phone to Instagram. Then I go into my Instagram online website via the computer to add comments and do whatever else I need to the photo. It's the only way I've been able to figure the thing out. As for decluttering, you have to blitz a room or all of your bedroom closets or drawers. You can't just do one object. It never works. I just blitzed the kitchen since the cupboards were dirty with flour,sugar, and spices after all the holiday baking. And then I did the downstairs closets. Took all day for the kitchen and 3 hrs for the closets. Of course, I don't have kids so no one was telling me "But I LOVE that torn up, dirty toy I've not played with since I was two and now I'm 20!"


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
