Last year around this time, I was resolving to make one new recipe a week, inspired by some beautiful cook books I received as Christmas gifts. Friends, that did not happen. But I did try many tasty new things! This is why I think resolutions are best viewed as incremental (i.e., I may not have actually flossed every day, but I did floss more than the year before. Let's call it a win!).
This year, I have two resolutions:
1) to finish this darn map; and
2) to get more active on instagram.
More to come on those. In the meantime, here are some totally do-able craft resolutions for your 2016:
Want to try knitting for the first time? Get this book. It has great, straightforward illustrations and a number of easy projects you can make quickly, so that you can feel accomplished about your first project. It also gives you room to grow -- I made my first sweater from one of its patterns.
Ready to give sewing a try? Lotta Jansdottir's Simple Sewing is for you. The pictures will inspire you, and it is full of great beginner projects.
Want to try something different? I am weirdly obsessed with these needlepoint trivets and want to make some immediately. Is it too early to start working on Christmas presents for next year?
