Happy new year- Goals for 2013

Happy New Year everyone!!! 

Hello everyone and happy new year!!! I can't believe it is now 2013. Just wanted to take this time to say thank you so much to everyone who has followed my blog this year, browsed or bought from my shop, followed me on twitter, left me lovely blog comments and tweets and to all my lovely cyber friends that I have made a long the way. You have all been fantastic!!

A big shout out to some friends that I have made on Etsy who have been wonderful and supportive with my shop, blog and twitter page.

At the start of a new year I always like to set myself some goals to try and achieve before the year is up. I have a feeling that 2013 is going to be a good year for me so have high hopes for the year. I know 13 is unlucky for some but it was my Granny's lucky number so I am hoping 2013 is going to be a fantastic year and even if luck is not on my side I am going to do everything I can to make it wonderful!!!

Here are my goals for 2013:

  • To blog more often!!!!
  • To visit more art galleries across the U.K as seeing art up close makes me so happy.
  • To have 100 items listed in my shop
  • To reach my 100th sale on Etsy
  • Spend more days down by the seaside
  • Improve my knitting skills (I am pretty terrible at the moment!)
  • To make more things on my sewing machine as it is something I really enjoy.
  • To go on more adventures and visit new places
  • Write some more blog posts on art pieces.
  • To try some different types of tea that I haven't already tried.
  • To smile more often and to make other people smile more often.
  • Do more RAOK (random acts of kindness) 
  • Go to London more often
  • Get much more organised!!!
  • Continue improve and expanding my Etsy shop. I would love to expand the range of vintage items which I sell and also make more handmade items for my shop.
  • Get involved in some more local projects and volunteer locally as it would be a lovely way of getting involved in the community and meeting some more local people.
  • Go back to Rome as it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.
  • Trace my family history as I know very little about it and would love to know more and make a family tree.
  • To keep a diary

This list is by no mean finished by here are just a few! 
Have you set yourself any new year goals? 

Hope that 2013 is a great year for you all and thank you so much for all your support in 2012. 

Best wishes
