Things I said that I would do this year:

1. Get Truche up and open for business - WOOT this was done and is doing great.
a. Create all inventory and decide on what to specialize in
b. Create the website with ZenCart

2. Do as much freelance design work as I can stand and save at least 75% of the money - ok well I did a lot of freelance, but didn't save much.

3. Take a trip to Jamacia SOON - Hmm what is soon? Still want to accomplish this, this year.

4. Do my pilates DVD at least 3 times a week so that I can actually touch my toes, wow that's sad! HAHA, nope didn't happen.

I dont really like that word resolutions, because its overrated. I do however have a few things that I want to accomplish this year:

::: Again Save Money - for a Jamaica Trip.
::: Reorganize my entire space, get rid of stuff I don't use.
::: Take Letterpress & Screen Printing classes
::: Find a fun way to work out and feel better
::: Enter 3-4 craft fairs
::: Expand Truche with more art and new jewelry designs
::: Seek out freelance design work
::: Smile & Laugh more

What do you want to accomplish this year?
