And in the end...

The love you take
Is equal to the love you make. -The Beatles

Wow! Where has 2010 gone? This has been a very exciting year!  I started this blog- woo hoo! Everyday Re-Creations started- yay! I have loved writing my thoughts down for you all to see...however many all actually is.  Today being the last day that I will post in 2010, I thought I would share some of my New Year's Resolutions.  Maybe if I tell you all about them I may actually follow through!

       1.  Do more crafts, projects, recipes to share
In the past, I've just explained about something I have done and given a few pictures.  2011 is going to be a year of doing! I want to come up with some good tips to share, or a new recipe that is cheap and easy.  I want you to want to come back and see what I'll be doing next.  I promise that next year I will experiment more things for you to try that will save you money and/or time. 

       2.  Read ten books
Pretty small number, huh?  Usually I'm doing ok if I read one book a year.  In 2011, I promise that I will hold myself accountable for my reading.  After each book I read, I will give you a breakdown on if it was enjoyable, an easy read, and if I would recommend it to you.

       3.  Be more healthy
Yeah, yeah typical resolution.  Seriously though, I'm not saying I want to lose X number of lbs or run four miles every morning.  I just want to be more conscious about what I put in my mouth and try and get outside more often and go for a walk. Easier said than done.

       4.  Recycle more
Ok, recycle at all.  I'm not a recycler. However, this year even if it's just one type of product I want to try and recycle.  Any ideas on what my first step in recycling should be? 

       5.  Save more money
Last year, I challenged myself to go two months without buying any clothes.  I think I'll do more challenges like that.  Stay tuned.

That's it.  They all seem fairly easy to obtain.  That's the key in resolutions.  Don't set your goals on something that you know you'll never live up to.  That just makes for a bigger let down. Start small.  I'll let you know how well I stick with mine! What are some of your resolutions???

Happy New Year! May you be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. ~Benjamin Franklin

I'm trying your #1 myself and the first thing I'm doing is making a quilt! It's not easy but I want to be more "homemade" and I know it'll make me appreciate things so much more. Good luck this year! :)
