1. Re-read some really great books, in addition to reading some new ones. Some of my SILs and I are planning to read Carolyn Mahaney's Feminine Appeal together, which is really exciting. I always have stacks of books I want to start, but I'm choosing what should rise to the top.
2. Sewing. I am the new owner of a sewing machine, thanks to a very generous Christmas gift from a friend! I have several projects in mind I want to try, but first I'm planning to sort of learn with a few practical things, using fabric I salvaged when I cleaned out my closet. I also have a little bit of pretty fabric stowed away that I'm excited to get my hands on. :)
3. Home organization. I would like to really improve in this area. I think for the past year or two, I've sort of just gotten doing the basics. I'd like to streamline quite a bit, and clear out closet space, etc. I know this won't happen overnight, but planning to do a chunk at a time!
Here are a few fun pictures from our Christmas festivities:
|Lots of cousin time -- playing piano with Cede|
|Christmas day -- so fun to explore all the new gifts|
