20/2010 Wrap Up

by Kate Franco on December 29, 2010 · 5 comments

I like making lists, but it turns out that I’m not so great at crossing things off. I’m batting .60 this year.

  1. buy original art for my apartment
  2. get a new bed
  3. learn how to paint {tried, but I suck!!}
  4. reorganize my closet
  5. read 1 book a month {Doing pretty well on this one!}
  6. find someone to create a new undeniable style banner
  7. plan a trip abroad {WIP}
  8. do yoga {swapping this out for pilates!}
  9. learn to be more flexible
  10. finish Alexis and Ed’s wedding quilt {before their 1 year anniversary}
  11. amp up my machine quilting skills
  12. practice writing…typography.
  13. design at least 1 cute fabric
  14. pay off that last little bit of credit card debt {I moved in order to help facilitate this…well this and #7, and my plans to save for the future…}
  15. host dinner for people i love at least once a month
  16. start keeping a journal again
  17. participate in a stash swap
  18. use my gym membership more than once a month!
  19. drink more good wine
  20. work on being MORE positive and grateful

In my defense, I chose A LOT of recurring/ongoing goals. Tough!

I will say that I feel like I have grown a lot this year in being more flexible and more positive/grateful. Those were definitely the most challenging things on this list, and will likely be on my list for 2011, if nothing more than to keep me motivated.

A lot of the things I fell short on related to money and time. Like: plan a trip abroad, pay off credit card debt, design cute fabric and amp up my machine quiliting skills. Sad pancakes, but hurrah to 2011.

Other things I accomplished this year: lots of hair lust, moving the entire contents of my studio apartment in the middle of a thunderstorm, 30×30 & no shopping for 30 days!, and not having an aneurism based on stress from my day job. Well done, indeed.

Bring on the new year! xox

for reading 1 book a month while *not* having an aneurism from the day gig, you deserve an award.

also, the goodness of the blog revamp is enough for an entire year of positive movement. cute ad button hello?!

I’d say that 60% is better than a lot of people do! You accomplished quite a bit in 2010. Here is to 2011!
