the internet on my laptop stopped working a few months back. If you have ever tried to update a blog from a phone you can guess why I have been silent.
A number of years back. I got the idea from someone in my journal writing group to make a yearly list of goals to accomplish. This list is made up of a combination of easy to achieve and hard to achieve goals.
This list I do from birthday ( October 14) to birthday. Here is last years, which I wrapped up this past October.

WIPocalypse 2015 (cross stitch), new year, new start (cross stitch), a few yet to be decided reading challenges, as well as complete 26 weeks of art journal pages (I will be using prompts from journal52.
