30 Before 30 : Success?

30 Has Come and Gone. My 30 Before 30 List has been updated. More than 1/3 of the items were accomplished. I'll consider that a win and move on to my 31 before 31 list! Haha

1. Complete 30 crafts including, but not limited to, the crafts I've pinned HERE
- On my way to 30 of them! I've been doing some really fun crafts lately. I think I'll have to make a separate post detailing my 30 crafts

2. Organize my office / assign everything a place Working on it!

3. Organize my closets / throw out things I haven't worn in 2 years - Work in progress, but definite progress has been made!

5. Use my Yudu to screen print something really large - Working on it!

6. Dye a portion (or all) of my hair a ridiculous color - Over it. Not feeling the colored hair. 

7. Pierce my face. Nose maybe? -- DONE!

8. Make the front of the house look like a home - Shutters will be added in spring 2013 (and MAYBE the front door will be painted if I can talk a certain somebody into it!)

9. Keep better records of my taxes and mileage / work more efficiently - DONE! (yet there's always room for improvement when it comes to working more efficiently!)

10. Attempt a juice diet/fast for more than 3 days - Not happening any time soon. Will attempt again when fruit is in season!

11. Fully decorate the kitchen / get all pictures framed and hung - All we have left to do is the pictures above the sink and stove!

12. Finish decorating the bedroom - Almost done

13. Paint the hallway - Moved this project to early 2013

14. Set up a functional work station in the basement for messy crafts - Working on it!

15. Go camping - Didn't happen. But I DID get to visit Dayton and all of my college friends, which was even better than camping!

16. Do something great when I reach my 500th Etsy sale (maybe a big giveaway?) - Flew past that and had a sale for the week. Now looking to do a giveaway for sale number 1000!

17. Approach at least 3 new boutiques about carrying my greeting cards and artwork DONE!

18. Strip / paint / finish vintage Hoosier Cabinet (red with white drawers, maybe?) DONE!

19. Begin selling wedding invitation sets in my Etsy shop - After assessing cost, decided against it. May revisit in 2013. Do I really want to work with Bridezillas?

20. Learn to correctly make sliding knot jewelry (this is seriously difficult for me!) - Nope.

21. Condense my craft supplies / donate the unused items here - Working on it!

22. Do something awesome with my all of my Instagram photos - Just had a ton of great pics made into magnets! Can't wait until they arrive!

23. Begin a collage journal or Picture-A-Day scrapbook - Hmm... maybe 2013 will be the year for that.

24. Start a 2nd e-commerce site to sell my prints (Big Cartel, maybe?) - Fail.

25. Attempt to sew something (anything! I haven't sewn in about a decade) - Thinking of taking a Dabble class to get that going for 2013!

26. Get the ball rolling on bringing LCN to NWI. I've got lots of ladies in Ind. that want to craft on a monthly basis! - Tried. Ball dropped. Maybe we'll try again in the spring?

27. Make postcards to hand out and hang up at coffee shops that really push my business of making these  DONE!

28. Finish some half-filled books of our wedding photos (we've been married nearly 3 years!) - Fail. maybe before our 5 year anniversary?

29. Overhaul the blog design - This goal is a MUST by spring '13! 

30. Plan a totally awesome theme party for my 30th --- Saved By The Bell, maybe?! - It's in the works. 90's TV Party or 90's Pop Icon Party. I am begging my husband and his best friend to dress as Larry and Balki from Perfect Strangers. I also want my friend Sarah to don a blonde wig, be Stephanie Tanner, and go around saying "how rude" all night.  - SUCCESS!!!!! Expect a totally awesome post devoted to this totally awesome 90's party. Zack and Kelly showed up. It was great!
