2012 New Year’s Goals
Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? What would you like to learn how to do (or do better) in 2012? At Craft Buds, we are excited to share tutorials and tips in 2012, including some more sewing basics. We’ll host another charm squares swap and are brainstorming ways to make the Craft Buds blog even more interactive. Perhaps a weekly link party, if there’s interest?
We invite you to link up your 2011 recap and/or 2012 goals here, whether they are craft-related, family, work or personal goals. If you don’t have a blog, we’d love to hear your goals for the new year in the comments!
Also in the comments, please let us know if you’d be interested in a Fresh Picks link party for handmade projects. We love seeing what you are working on, and would love to highlight more of our readers’ crafts, so tell us if you think you’d participate!
