for 2015

Here's a little list of my goals for 2015. I'm joining in with Sophie over at Her Library Adventures.
I hope to check back throughout the year and be able to tick at least some of these goals off the list. let me know if you share your thirty goals too.

1. sew, sew and sew some more. I want to sew more clothes for myself and also get my little shop open and stocked again
2. gardening. this will be a bit of a challenge but I at least want to have a few herbs going and also get a compost pile/worm farm happening for all the kitchen scraps
3. get cutting and pasting in my inspiration scrapbook
4. continue with the ethical clothing pledge of 2014, I shopped my wardrobe, found some beautiful pieces while op-shopping and made a few purchases from ethical businesses
5. not buy bread, instead making our own. I'd like to get my own sour dough starter happening too
6. take pottery classes, I'm pretty sure there's a group in town
7. make more cleaning and beauty products including washing liquid, facial exfoliator, shampoo and conditioner
8. say 'no' to disposable coffee cups. I invested in a 'keep cup' each so now just the challenge of remembering to bring them with us while out and about
9. learn the art of macramé
10. get to know and understand the functions of my camera better
11. Try weaving. I op-shopped a little loom a while back so now just have to find some yarn to weave
12. Try screen printing
13. Make a strap for my camera
14. upcycle some of the silver cutlery collection.. I'm thinking jewellery
15. upcycle some broken plates.. yes the move did unfortunately result in a few Johnson casualties
16. use the cookbook collection and try new recipes
17. make a timber Christmas tree for December 2015
18. make soap
19. make a terrarium
20. buy groceries from locally owned small businesses rather then the big chains
21. keep the house tidier by doing a little cleaning everyday
22. blog at least once a week, maybe twice
23. send more happy mail
24. discover the perfect museli bar recipe
25. drink more water everyday
26. make more handmade gifts
27. cull more stuff.. kitchenware and craft room
28. buy based on quality rather than price
29. print and frame some of my photos
30. organise a wedding


  1. I love your list! I saw this on Sophie's blog too and have decided to have a go to. I never make resolutions as I can never seem to keep them, but setting myself 30 goals seems far more exciting. Thanks for sharing, I have so many the same as yours..........especially number 30. Elaina xo

  2. A wedding?! Yours??? Hope so! x

  3. Great goals! We have some of the same :-)

  4. WEDDING? Woohoo! Hope you mean yours! mel x

  5. Good luck with your goals Zara. I have some goals, of course, but I'm trying to focus on how I want to feel this year. I also have a word for the year, sanctuary. I want our home to be our sanctuary. This involves tidying up, cleaning and decluttering. All the best for 2015. xo

  6. I might just take up your list. It's perfect. I look forward to you achieving everything on it - and blogging about it too.

  7. Umm, I will give the 'organise a wedding' a miss though - I could substitute Girl Guide camps, by the drillion. What do you think?

  8. organise a wedding! woop! our goals a very similar, great minds must think alike. hope 2015 is a wonderful year for u xx

  9. A beautiful simple list, there's a few things on your list I'm keen to do myself. But stop the press, are we talking about your wedding? Exciting.....

  10. I'm definitely not organising a wedding but I do remember how lovely it can be. I do have many goals in common with you though. Happy mail, cleaning, gardening sewing, culling stuff &c
    Happy 2015.

  11. Can I steal your list! I kept reading and thinking, yep, yep, check, yep... Only difference was my number one item was making the list! So seriously, hope you don't mind but I'm calling dibs and tagging along Zara! Xx


I love receiving comments, so a big thank you from me to you. x
