This year

Happy New Year's!
I can't believe that is is!
What a year 2011 was, but I sure am ready for 2012 :)

In thinking about this upcoming year, I have BIG dreams and goals both personally and for my etsy shop.

1. Put God first, then Grant and then Emrie. This is a tough one for me.  I sometimes get these all wrong and mixed up. 
2. Work out and eat better
3. Start serving with Emrie somewhere.  My thought it to take her to a retirement home once a month or more and just sit and talk with the elderly.  Whenever we are out, it is always the old people who she just smiles at and I can see the joy she brings them.
4. Spend more time in the Word and pray more.  I am loving the devotional "Jesus Calling", but I don't want that to take substitute of my actual Bible time.
5. Find joy in EVERY day and live with a purpose

Etsy Shop:
1. Sell more than just headbands. I have added a couple bracelets, but my goal is to offer headbands and clips for the little ones and then jewelry for the mamas! I love jewelry, so my thought is some more fun bracelets and necklaces! Anyone have any ideas of things you would like??
2. Only sell things that I LOVE, nothing short of that.
3. Hit 200 sales or more.  But if not, I will still be ok! It is fun to have a goal though.
4.  Market my shop a little better.
5.  Blessing others is one of my greatest joys, so make my shop a blessing to others!

These are just a few goals I have for this upcoming 2012!
It's gonna be a great year! I just know it :)

My goals are so similar to yours. I would love to go to the retirement home with you. My dad used to take me when I was younger and I loved it!!! Lets serve together! That would make me so happy :)
I love that necklace you put up!!! Are you making it now?

Wonderful goals! I also struggle with putting God first all the time. If it wasn't for Him, I wouldn't have my beautiful family and I need to fully trust He will take care of us :o) Good luck with your Etsy shop, beautiful necklace you posted here! I'm sure you will do great!!!

I went to a Lutheran school when I was little, and I remember taking field trips to nursing homes to visit and sing songs. I remember how much they all loved talking to us. Of course, I didn't understand it at the time, but what a powerful memory now. I bet they would love to see your cute little baby in there.
