to do: 2012 handmade goals

Happy New Year! While I’m sad to see 2011 go — it was a great year — I’m welcoming 2012 with open arms. I love the promise of a new year, it’s filled with so much hope, opportunity and unknown surprises. Every January, I make a list of personal resolutions that I try to adhere to throughout the year. This year, I decided to also put together a list of handmade goals. These are things that I’ve been meaning to do but haven’t gotten around to for one reason or another and 2012 seems as good a year as any to do them. No time like the present, as they say…

So, this year, I will:

+ Learn how to make french baguettes

+ Pickle in August. Pickle everything: cukes, cauliflower, green beans, peppers, carrots…

+ Make and can jams in the summer

+ Sew a piece of clothing and actually wear it

+ Figure out how to make carrot cake whoopie pies at high altitude (without using a whoopie pie pan)

+ Discover a homemade frozen yogurt that I like

+ Go to Paris

+ Make a quilt (that is not a baby blanket)

+ Perfect my red sauce recipe

What about you, anything you’ve been dying to try but haven’t?

Happy + Healthy to you and yours,
