2012: Final Goal Review

It has been twelve months since I made my list of goals for the year, and it is time to see where we are at on its progress and what I accomplished. 

1. Create a masterpiece: Still working on this one. I finally hung up the painting I bought (mostly to get it out of the way), but still haven't painted over it to create my own masterpiece. It's hard to decide what kind of piece I want to put on it. Not for lack of inspiration.

2. Frame old treasures:  I framed and hung many old treasures! I completed a gallery wall in Lucy's room and in the guest room/library. 

3. Downsize personal art collection: Heyo! I actually donated one of my (award-winning) Rose photographs for a service auction. (The award is one of the highlights of my artistic career.) Several people bid on it and eventually it went home with someone who really loved it. (Yay!) So, one piece down, about 200 to go... but Hey, I'll take it!

4. Execute some pins: Well done. See herehereherehereherehere, and here... etc.

5. Send letters: See here!

6. Family trip: We went to Alabama for Zach's graduation and enjoyed some time there with his parents. Not exactly the family trip I had envisioned, but still enjoyable. Lucy and I spent the month prior in Iowa staying with Zach's parents and really enjoyed spending time with Nana and Grandpa. It was great to have a break from home responsibilities for awhile. 

7. Have a party: Thanksgiving, baby. Also not the fancy event I dreamed of for my party goal, but still filled with good food and good people.

8. Draw: So done! Oh, it felt so good to do this one. See here. It still makes me so happy to look through this book and show it to others.

9.Portraits: Nope.

10. Braid: Heck yes! I love me some fishtail. See here.

    So, 8/10. Not bad. 

    As a reminder, these are things I actually wanted to do as opposed to "New Years Resolutions" that are usually things that you don't want to do, but resolve to do anyway. Usually in an effort to become a better "you". I'm not opposed to that, but this list isn't intended to do that. Rather, a way to encourage myself to actually do the things I long to do, but never seem to get around to.

    I loved this list of goals and really enjoyed pursuing my interests and talents this year. I can't wait to make my new list for 2013!

    How did your goals for the year come out? Did you accomplished any dreams this year?
