The List!

I don't really ever make resolutions... and by now everyone has already started their new year resolutions (I'm sure some people have already broken theirs, too.  haha.), plus I prefer the number 5... so January 5th seems like a good day to figure things out.  This list is just things that I want to start doing, or start doing more of.  I guess it's just another edition to my list of things that I want to do one day.

  • Drink the tea that I have!  I have so many delicious type of tea that I'm scared to drink.  I just want to keep them forever, but tea is meant to be enjoyed... not to sit on a shelf.  On Christmas I finally had a mug of my tea from Paris, ha!  So, I'm really going to try to enjoy all of the different kinds of tea that I have.  Not just let them sit on the shelf.
  • Use my nice yarn.  I'm so scared to use all of the nice yarn that I have, I think what if I knit the wrong thing?  Or what if I figure out something better that I can make after I've already used it?  The nice yarn is just so expensive, so it scares me.  I never really knit myself anything, so I'm going to try and knit myself some nice things.
  • Donate 10,000 knitted items to charity.  For every purchase in my shop I donate to a charity, but I want to donate more just because.  Last night I started a blanket that I'm going to donate to my local SPCA.  I'm going to take photos of everything that I donate (minus what I already have) and keep track of it. (This goal was inspired by this blog).
  • Take more photos.  I want to take more photos of every day things, not just photos when I go to a party.  The past few months I think I've gotten a bit better, but I want to take a lot more & share more photos on my blog.
  • Take more film photos.  I have a couple of film cameras, and a few rolls of pre-paid film (the best!  Haha.), I just need to remember to take photos on them!
  • Drink more green monster smoothies!  I used to drink at least one a day before I went to Europe, then I got back & the blender broke.  I have a new one now and had my first green smoothie in... a loooooooong time!  It's so delicious and I want to keep drinking at least one a day.  
I think that's a good list for now!  Do you have any things that you want to accomplish?  It doesn't necessarily have to be this year, just in your lifetime!  Leave me the link!


  1. I love your list!

    I don't have any really serious resolutions this year, but the couple of things I do want to do I'm giving myself until the 15th to get prepped/organized/in the right mindset for.

  2. I love that you'r going to take more film photos! Girls like us keep films alive :D

    Ans 10 000 items donated? Wow, you must be extremely productive! How did you get time to make all these?

  3. I can wholeheartedly say "Ditto" to many things on your list. Only I can't seem to keep my favourite teas in the cupboard: I love tea so much, I feel as though I'm constantly on the lookout for my next cuppa.
    Good luck with the charity knitting!

  4. I think it's wonderful that you're donating knitted items to charity this year!
    And I'm so with you on being scared to use your good yarn. I always have to work up the courage to use mine!

    xo, Allie

  5. I did a 12 in 2012 list

    I love the donating to charity! I think that's an amazing idea and so fantastic!

  6. I like the use my nice yarn. It's scary because what if you don't choose the right project. . . but I've let that all behind me now. :) best of luck!

  7. Aw, your goals are so sweet! This year I want to make more time for the things I love, like drawing and writing. I also want to be happy and healthy! :)

    Happy new year, Holly!

  8. Hi Holly! I love your goal about donating items - have you heard of Knit a Square? I thought you might be interested!

  9. Great idea to donate knitted things to charity ! I use alot of yarn too, but I make hair braids with them ! :D

  10. fun resolutions! and our tea pots ARE so similar!! i love it!! and i am totally with you about the drinking more tea. i just put some of ALL my tea bags in this little basket thing, and it's on my bookshelf -- so i'll see them now and drink them. its so fun and i'm already drinking more tea! open organization! it works like a charm!

  11. I know exactly what you mean about the nice yarns!! i have quite a bit of nice stuff that i've acquired at different times, and it just sits there. i am doing a 101 in 1001 challenge that i started january 4th, and one of my goals is to knit myself something out of at least one of the nice yarns.
    Knit, Nicole, Knit!
