Since it is New Year’s Eve, I am making resolutions. This is the first year in a long time that I am doing this. I didn’t make resolutions the last couple of years. Mostly because I felt that resolutions were something that never lasted past January. I still think that about many resolutions, and maybe it will happen to mine too…My new philosophy is that you never get anywhere if you don’t set out to go somewhere. So here they are (in no particular order):
1. I will start on next year’s Christmas gifts now! I am waiting on the Alan Dart gnome pattern. I plan to make these for several people (fortunately, they either don’t have computers or don’t read blogs…they will never see it coming). There are also several people who will recieve scarfs and dishcloths (one already started…yay). I am also working on taking pictures for next year’s calendar.
2. I will scrap at least one page in each boy’s album each month (that is only two pages per month…totally doable).
3. We will make at least one change per month to be a “greener” family. January’s change is to reduce papertowel usage. Yay for knitted dishcloths! Ok, so January’s change is really an excuse to knit, but it will still help reduce waste (and use up the major stash of dishcloth yarn I have accumulated).

Happy New Year to all!
