Happy New Year!
My 2012 vintage to-do list has finally been notarized, stamped & sealed. In no particular order and subject to change without prior written consent, I present to you:
Things I Hope To Do More of In 2012 and Perhaps Some of Them I Can Also Improve Upon While I’m At It Including My Constant Use of Run-on Sentences and Sketchy Grammar
I wasn’t even aware it was happening but after sewing non-stop for years, I slowed and then ground to a halt last year for no reason other than I needed a little break.
But now I have pages of sketches, a fresh perspective and lots of vintage fabric bookmarked on etsy.
( My fabric de-stash plan is so 2011. )
2. Junk-related travel.
I love a road trip and I’m that person who stops at every odd roadside attraction to view the life-size dinosaur made of cheese or the world’s largest talking knife & fork.
Add a little junking to it and it's a great day.
This is the 'before'
3. Paint more furniture.
I like to paint things. Maybe it's the paint fumes talking.
I’m going to try making my own chalk paint as well. I’ll report back.
4. Sell at vintage events.
Luckily, I had nothing but positive experiences as a vendor last year so this year I’m ready for more.
Not to mention The Garage Where Cars Can’t Park is still filled with everything but cars.

5. Sell in an antique mall again.
And not in the unofficial one currently going on in my garage where I’m my only customer. A real antique mall.
I have my name on the very long waiting list for a particular antique mall in Portland, OR. The wait could be a year!
Er, Plan B…?
6. Learn some new tricks.
I already have an electric staple gun and a very sad chair.
Do you have big plans brewing? I hope 2012 holds new adventures for all of us and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens!
