It's incredible that we are already at the end of the year, it looks like yesterday to me that we were celebrating the beginning of 2011!
This has been a good year; I learned a lot of stuff, I grown up a lot too as a person, which is great, I think I'm a little more patience now that before although I'm still super active and nervous :)
I worked hard (and keep working) to make my little business (Lily bird Studio) grow and add an extra income to my home while sharing ideas at affordable prices with other people, specially the beginner sewers. It also gave me the chance to know some amazing people who helped me to test some of my patterns, we had a great communication and now I feel like I got some new friends, it is great how people get connected.
I finally got the chance to quit my day job and work from home so I can take care of my daughter by myself and be there for her any time.
I also got involved on a program to help people in need; Create HOPE Designs, have the chance to help others makes me so happy, what I do is not much, but I believe that is everyone helps a little this could be a much better place to live.
I usually don't like make a detailed plans on my expectations and goals for next year, because if I don't get to achieve them I feel disappointed and that is not how I want to live. Anyway I have some minor and not so minor goals that I would like to achieve;
- I want to be able to put some organization at home, I would love to get all my chores done, cook healthy and tasty meals every day, entertain my toddler and have enough time to sew and create, I need organization to do all that in a single day.
- I want to learn something new, there is always something usefully to learn
- I want to finally find the time to start 2 little business (soon you will know!!) I have had in my mind for a long time.
The most important event that I foresee for next year is my religious wedding ceremony and reception. My husband and I got married in 2007 but since we went to live on the other side of the world (Malaysia) 1 month after our wedding we didn't have the chance to do the religious ceremony and reception, but it was always on our head, we wanted to do that once we were back in our country, so... we decided to "re-marry" on October 2012! I am so exited about that, I've been dreaming about that day and about the perfect wedding dress since I'm a little girl so it will be like a dream come true. We will "re-marry" on the same day we got married the first time 5 years before, October 19th!
