Current Goals: November

Things in life rarely go according to plan but I do believe it’s important to make goals for yourself.  However little or grand, short term or long term, they bring a certain sense of perspective and motivation.

Here are a few on my mind:

Read through my promotions emails/newsletters  

Ever since Gmail started to automatically separate emails by category, I feel like there’s a serious chunk of emails (10,147 to be exact) I’m missing out on.  There are so many great websites out there that offer valuable advice and guidelines on various projects I’m trying to start.  Whether it’s tricks to maximize SEO tags, cute packaging ideas, or blogger burnout woes, there is a wealth of information I have been ignoring.

Seriously stop buying yarn

Danger Zone

 

I need to keep walking when I see that cute holiday display and plush merino on sale.  In fact, it is best to RUN!

 One new post every week

Holiday DIY

‘Tis the season for DIYs.  Whether you are looking for that perfect gift or you have some extra time over the holiday break, these fun projects make use of yarn in creative ways.

 1.  Yarn Backdrop

Dramatic, but simple to create.  Using gradient yarns adds to the bold visual of this wall piece.

2. Pom Pom Wreath

Don’t you just hate it when that lush green wreath hangs dried and brown after the holidays?  This pom pom version is sustainable and super cute.

3. Glitter Twine Ball

A great idea for a dinner centerpiece or as a tree ornament.  Everything looks better with a little sparkle for the holidays.
