Resolutions for 2012

I am excited about the new year and and my mom and I have several resolutions we want to make this year.  Maybe putting them on record on our blog will help us to work towards them all year long!!

1. Make at least 100 sales in our Etsy shop
2. Have 100 items in our shop consistently
3. Keep up with blogging weekly
4. Make our own patterns to share and sell
5. Attend 1 craft fair
6. Learn more about photography
7. Lose weight!! (seems to be on the list every year, maybe this year we will stick to it)
8. Send at least 1 handwritten card to a friend or family member each month

I think that all of these goals are definitely attainable, but we are going to have to work hard.  No more 3 week breaks from the shop and promoting the shop.  I think one of the biggest things that will help us to reach these goals is to become better organized...which is one of my favorite things to do so that shouldn't be too hard.  What are your new year's resolutions?  Have any suggestions that might help us reach ours?

Yummy Things from Pinterest

 I finally tried 2 of the recipes that I pinned on Pinterest and they were amazing!!!  The first thing I made was the sopapilla cheesecake.  It was so easy and tasted delicious.

I wasn't even able to get a picture of it before cutting into and trying it!!  I definitely will not be able to make this very often because it is not on the diet plan for losing weight though.  You can check out the recipe for this dish here.

I also made these wonton taco cups for dinner that night as well.  Again, such a super easy and delicious meal.  It was so nice to make something for dinner that did not take forever but was new and fresh!

Its a great party food.  I had 1 lb of beef and 1 can of beans and it made 24 taco cups.  It didn't take long to make and was pretty cheap.  I think this will be on our menu list at our next get together.  You can find the recipe for this dish here.

New Stuff in Our Etsy Shop

I said earlier that we had a spring of inspiration and were well rested enough to get back into the swing of things.  We worked really hard this weekend and have 3 new things listed in our store!!  And I love them all, but my favorite is our new pirate baby gift set.

I absolutely love this set and might have to get some more of this fabric to make something for Peyton!!  Maybe we could make a cool pirate dress for her :)

We also made this red and black flower diaper tote with changing pad and a  lightweight pink peace sign blanket.  

We will have more items coming soon!!
