Days 3 - 10 plus more

(Day 3- A picture my brother made my hubby and me. Isn't he amazing?!) 

  I am putting a hold on my Etsy shop. I am planning on working, organizing, and scheduling time and having a "re-launch" sometime closer to the summer. There will still be a few things up for people to purchase and even some new items, but there will be much more to look forward to as the summer draws closer. I am hoping to net-work better and get my blog and myself out there more. Ideas are welcomed!
 (Day 4 - Teddy, my Dad gave me this bear the day I was born.)

(Day 5 -I made this necklace. The hubs bought me the heart pendant in SLO
and the chain came from his great grandma.)

 (Day 6 - My amazing hubby, Jeremy)

 As the new year started, Jeremy and I decided that we needed to do things differently this year. Three of our main goals as a couple, 1. Eat better and exercise more. 2. Take more pictures. and 3. Go more places and do more things! 
 Everyone says they want to eat better and exercise, but we really are doing it! We are not big on veggies and fruits. We have entered some into our diet and I am keep a "food journal". I can already tell the difference by just adding these foods. Now we just need to work on a daily exercising schedule. 
 The reason we decided to do the 365 (in this case 366) project is so we can take more pictures and hopefully this will encourage us to get out and do more. We are such home-bodies and lazy bums. It is all changing!  

 (Day 7- This is a doll found at my father and mother-in-law's house. 
It is pretty scary, but much scarier because of the bag on its head.)

 (Day 8 - Jewelry making! I already sold the key necklace and the heart bracelet to my awesome neighbor!) 

 (Day 9 - I am CPR certified!) 

(Day 10 - Me)

 Something else that I have made my personal goal, as I stated earlier, is to blog more and to get out in the blog world more. I was doing so well when my schedule was a little calmer during the summertime. However, I now work full time again and do about a million other things for everyone else. I am trying to work on setting aside some "me" time, which is when I plan on doing crafts and blogging and sometimes pampering myself in other ways. It is so important to take time away from the busy-ness and be alone and that is what I am trying to do. I'm such a do-er for others that I all too often forget about myself. I'm sure there are many that can relate!

Day 2

This is my beautiful cat, Tay. She walked into my family's home before Jeremy and I were married and she adopted us. Once we got married and my parents moved out of state, guess who came to live in our apartment with us? She is our first pet and we love her so much!

Day 1 and my Resolution(s)

My hubby and his cousin are doing the 365 day project and I thought that it would be a wonderful idea to do one as well. I thought it would be fun to post my pictures on facebook, and then come on my blog and post the picture and write a little bit about it. I am hoping that this will get me posting at least something once a day. I hope to post more often.

I looked up the term Resolution and this is what I found:
 a resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.
The word resolution becomes a common word to use around this time of year and usually it just means something you hope to do, but probably won't. My goal is to be a woman of my word, therefore when I say I am making a resolution, I mean I am making a firm determination to change to do something new. 
I want to take more pictures in the year 2012, I want to post more often, I want to be healthier, I want to try new things. This past year was a bit tough and I am hoping for a more promising and better new year! 
Day 1- 
 This is a picture of a drawing my oldest brother-in-law made of our family. My hubby and I are the ones sitting by the cat on the far right. My hubby's family has meant the world to me and I love them dearly, so I thought why not start the new year with them! 

And, just a few pictures from the holidays:
 My sisters-in-law, me, and my nieces

 Me with Payton and Sophiamarie
