We lay plans for the future. This is the year I’ll sew a coat! Next month I’ll learn how to knit! I’m going to make myself a work wardrobe/only use stash fabrics/conquer trousers. Then, something happens called life.
Well, no longer!
The problem with blog resolutions is that we’re answerable to no one other than ourselves. Readers aren’t going to admonish us if we don’t manage to churn out those six blouses we promised we’d make all the way back in January. Honestly, by the summer how many readers even remember what vows we once made? It’s all too easy to wriggle out of commitments.
Enter the 2013 Jar Of Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is.
I’m inviting people to leave a comment below with one Sewlution for 2013. Just the one. I’ll transcribe it onto a piece of paper with your name and add it to the jar. In 12 months from now, I’ll empty out the jar and host a blog post where you’re invited to reveal – did you keep to your commitment or is yours the face of shame? Whoever impresses me the most, for whatever random reason, will receive a prize.
Simples. All I need you to do is choose one crafting accomplishment for the year, big or small. Then tell me about it. But don’t forget, I have a long memory and a jar. You have until midnight GMT, January 2 to be included.
I’ve already added my Sewlution to the jar. Let’s see if I can put my money where my mouth is. I only have 12 months in which to prove myself…
Happy New Year, guys!
