2012 Checklist!

Sometimes projects and myself just don't get along, unless if I make a list of some sort, so that's what I'm planning on doing!  I think by putting this on my blog then I will be more willing to completely finish or in some cases even start these projects!  I hope I'm not the only one who has this problem....  I've been thinking about my 2012 list for a while now and this is what I came up with:

1. Make my closet pretty and organized.  Right now my closet is just blah and not too organized.  I need to spruce it up a bit and here is some inspiration that I have found on other sites

I Heart Organizing

I love the stripes in the first closet and the simplicity of it and the second one I love the organization of everything.  I know these aren't closets for your clothes, but I like the design aspects of them.

2.  Lose Weight.  Isn't this on everyone's to do list for 2012?

3.  Make curtains for our bedroom and our other bedroom.

4.  Make a full length mirror for our bedroom such as this one:

Love these mirrors....the one I make won't be quite this big though.

5.  Work on mini sewing projects just for fun! Especially one like this one I just finished!

6.  Organize, organize, and organize with boxes and totes, or whatever will do the job!  The ones below are cute and functional:)

7.  This summer give some special attention to our landscaping and possibly try to grow a garden!

8. DIY Wedding Photo Canvas.  I haven't printed off any wedding photos yet and we were married in July...yikes!!!  I thought these would be perfect to try out with our wedding photos:)

What's on your list or do you have one for 2012?

Until next time!


  1. This is a great list! Excited to see what you do with the closet - love closet organization. Esp. so since we don't have a single closet on the first floor. Ugh!

    My goal is to have a baby. But, I have a disgustingly long list of all the things I want to finish around the house (nursery included) before June. Poor, Ryan. He knows it's coming because I've been working on this list the past week or so.

    1. Kim, that would hard not having any closet on your first floor! Also, Congratulations on the baby:) That would be very exciting with getting ready for he/she:) I think it would lots of fun preparing for your little one! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Ohhh!! Great list!! I have sooo much I want to do, but organizing is definetly on the top too.

    1. Chrissy, there is always something to organize that's for sure. I feel much happier when my house is organized. Plus, it's just easier to find things when everything has it's place.


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog:) If you have any questions then feel free to ask away and I will get back to you!
