My second goal was to be more social. Tricky, seeing that I'm a hard core introvert...I thought I'd start out slowly and have people over once a month! So, the idea to have a "Kick Ass Craft Night" was born. The first one is on January 29th, and is going to have a LOT of bacon and booze....and crafts of course...no power tools though...I promise! (Maybe)...

it's that time of year again...resolution time!
With Christmas behind us it's time to focus on the new year. I have a lot of goals this year and have kicked my motivation into high gear! First, I wanted to redecorate my bedroom. On a small budget, that can be hard, so I decided to only do a little at a time, and only use recycled, thrifted, or sale items. Originally, my mother was going to buy me a cube storage unit from ikea to put in the center of the room, but I moved my furniture around, and it turns out that it won't fit. Not with the existing couch at least. Maybe if I bought some chairs, but it's not in the budget right now. So, I had a problem. I STILL need the storage--my living room is trashed with all the stuff that was in that room! My friend told me about a set of lockers that was in the high school before they ripped them out my sophomore year. That's perfect! Even more perfect was the price...$20! I plan on painting them and putting them where the desk was. I haven't decided on a cheveron pattern or chalkboard paint....maybe I can find some white chalkboard paint and dye my own so I can do a chevron pattern With chalkboard paint!
