Happy New Year 2012

It's a new year and a fresh start!  Last year my goal was to be more creative and try to sew things I have never sewn before.  With a child that was 5 months last January and is only 17 months now and becoming pregnant at the end of summer not as much sewing happened the first 10 month of the year. I believe the only sewing I did the first 5 months complete a quilt and sew a top of a t-shirt quilt.  It wasn't until about Halloween that I started sewing again when I made Ellie a cape and appliqued an emblem to her shirt to be Word Girl for Halloween. Around Thanksgiving I finally started feeling more energetic and when I went to Montana at Thanksgiving time my mother and I put together several casserole carriers and I decided to start this blog with my first tutorial on the Casserole Carrier.  I have since then completed several projects that have been sitting around and I have even sewn a few things for the fun of it!

My Creativity Goals this year:
  • Write 2 tutorials a month
  • Open an Etsy account
  • Participate in a craft fair
  • Sew my girls matching/coordinating dresses
  • Complete some house projects (decorating) 
After writing my goals out last night I read my husbands blog this morning regarding New Beginnings and he posted this verse;

Lamentations 3:22-23
22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
   for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
   great is your faithfulness.

How thankful I am that his mercies are renewed every morning and I don't have to be consumed by my failures.  Even if I fail in my attempt to be more creative this year I will not be consumed by failure for I know my God is compassionate and every morning is new!
