Life Lately January 2014

Hello 2014!

I am sitting by my Christmas tree in all it's glory and looking at my nativity all lit up.  Today is the 12th Night of Christmas, Feast of the Epiphany, Little Christmas, January 6th, and my first day back to work since December 20th.  Tomorrow will be a sad day when I unplug my exterior lights as I walk out to my car.

Last day of Christmas
I am not one for resolutions but I am working on a goal list for 2014.  I for one am looking forward to a better 2014 than 2013.

Here are a few:

- Make a suit jacket out of Crown Royal bags.  It has been my husband's dream to have a jacket made out of Crown Royal bags since we saw this guy at Mardi Gras a few years back (I wish I took a picture) and I am starting the project.  I bought 130 bags on ebay and we have a few of our own.  I will be doing a blog post on the project because I have scoured the internet and have not found a tutorial.  I have sewn one whole jacket before and I have never quilted.  This will be a combination since I need to quilt the squares and then cut the pattern.  Wish me luck!

Photo Credit I want to improve upon this design with rectangular patches - not so "bag" like.
- Create a vlog, or a few : )  I have a few drink recipes that I would like to video in the pub and we will see where we go from there.  Maybe a few on how to cook with the pizza oven...

- Buy domain names for our blogs YouTube channel.  (Check out my husband's blog on our ghost hunting vacations at Haunted Holidaze and our YouTube channel HitchhikerGhost where we share our paranormal evidence.  I can check this off my list because I did this tonight!  Now what to do with them.

- I hope to start to post and sell items in my Etsy shop. I created the shop months ago and it sits empty. Let's see if I still like to sew after hopefully completing the jacket.

- Complete a 30 day challenge.  I am trying the 30 day squat challenge and I have made it through day 6 and I hope I can make it through the end of the month.

Do you make New Years resolutions or goals?  Or an item on your to do list that moving it's way up to the top?

  1. Good luck meeting all of your goals. I'd love to see what drink concoctions you come up with. I'm not doing a 30 day Ab challenge (though I probably should). Instead, I'm doing a 30 day money challenge where you set aside a little bit each week and then end up with a lump sum at the end.

    1. Good Luck with your $30 day challenge! Something so refreshing about a new year which is inspiration to change routines.

  2. Wow, creating that suit jacket sounds difficult, good luck! Also look forward to the vlogs, I would love to get up the courage to start doing those.

  3. If you do make that Crown Royal jacket please, please post photos! :)

    1. The jacket is in progress...at this point I think it will take just over 100 bags. I can't wait to share it.

  4. Good luck with the jacket! (maybe it's done already at this point?) My mom's the sewer/knitter/quilter of the family and I'm always so impressed and amazed with what she can do with a little fabric and some thread. All the best! -Dana
