Man, it's been a while since I did a monthly update! But I'm super happy that I reached my goal of reading 52 books in 2012. I didn't get anywhere close to sending out 100 letters, but I'm going to try this year. (So far I'm already at over 10. Woo!) In November I only got around to reading 3 books, I was busy getting prepared for my craft show in December. (Please ignore the crooked photo... ha.)
I really enjoyed Little Bee and Dark Places, but I had a hard time getting through The Kid. Not sure why. I liked Push a lot better...
In December I had to catch up and read 7 books to hit my goal of 52. I actually finished the last 40 or so pages at the New Year's Eve party I went to... haha.
I didn't get a chance to pick up any new books in December, so I re-read Mosh Pit, Dear Diary, Tart, Fingerprints 1: Gifted Touch & 2: Haunted, and Serving Crazy With Curry. Yeah, I might have been picking easy, quick reads so that I could reach my goal... whatever! Haha. Then on New Year's Eve I borrowed my sister's copy of Divergent & finished that for my last book. Now I want to stack up all 52 books & take a photo, haha. I might have to wait a little while & do it outside.
In December I was also in my second craft show! Nacho Mama's Craft Show at Sneaky Dee's. So I spent most of November working on new things for that. & I also started my "birthday blanket". That blanket is almost finished, I had to pick up a bit more yarn to make it long enough to fit my bed.
This month I'm hoping to read 4 books... maybe 5? Haha. I've been playing Sudoku instead of reading before I fall asleep lately, so I've only read 1 book so far... I'm slacking! Haha. But I have sent out over 10 letters, so that's a bonus. And I've started on another blanket. But that's a gift... so I'll have to keep that one a secret, for now! I've also started taking photos of everything that I make, mostly just so I can keep track & see how much I accomplish each month/year. I probably won't post photos on here of everything I've made, just a few things every once in a while. Oh! & hopefully I can tick "take a yoga class" off my list pretty soon! I'm excited to try yoga out.
Is there anything you're hoping to do this month? I know it's January so most people probably just made resolutions... but I find breaking it down into monthly goals is a lot less daunting. Any books you're hoping to read? I could use some new suggestions, I'm in need of going book shopping!
