Happy new year!
Okay, I know 2012 is the year of dragon in Chinese mythology and the year the world explodes or something - on my birthday, December 21st, no less! - but I'm declaring it the year of curiosity!
I've noticed so many people stating that they've never made a lotion, but they'd like to in 2012, so let's make that happen! What's holding you back from making that first cream, lotion, moisturizer, or other emulsified thing? Why haven't you taken the plunge yet? What barriers stand in your way and how can we remove them? I'll gather your thoughts and turn it into some kind of series on this blog so you can make that first lotion and feel the same addiction...I mean, fondness for the craft that I have!
Do you have any resolutions you want to share?
I'm making more time for crafting in my life! I want to learn how to sew something tailored for Raymond. I want to conquer the sleeve and not fear making shirts. I want to learn how to make CP soap (liquid or bar). I want to be less procrastination-y when it comes to doing things like writing up the schedule for craft group or preparing grant proposals. I need to further refine my boundaries and continue to say no and not feel guilty about it! There are more...but they're not very interesting (yet another year of committing to not brushing my teeth as hard!)
Welcome to 2012, the year of curiosity!
