12 Projects for 2013 Update

At the end of 2012, I posted a list of 12 projects I hoped to accomplish in the New Year. I had planned to tackle one each month, and to update here as I completed them.

And then this pregnancy and my hypothyroidism knocked me flat over. So come May, there I was, nearly half way through the year.... and I realized that I hadn't accomplished even one. Ouch!

These were my intended projects:

1. Make homemade deodorant
2. Go shampoo and conditioner free
3. Try the Oil-Cleansing Method of face wash. 
4. Learn how to knit.
5. Make homemade vanilla extract
6. Try Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day
7. Soaked grain recipes (utilizing Trina Holden's ebook, Real Fast Food).
8. Make a scrapbook of our engagement photos (someone gave me the perfect book and paper for them years ago, yet its sat collecting dust on my shelf!).
9. Print and organize our family photos.
10. Put together a wedding album (yes, I've been married for nearly five years and don't have one yet).
11. Publish an ebook with my daughter's birth and NICU story.
12. Sew a curtain for S's room. 

Once I was put on bed rest, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to go into overdrive on the more sedentary tasks. Since I'm officially off of bed rest as of this week, I'm looking forward to trying a few that require me to be on my feet. Nothing too strenuous, of course ;). 

I'm not sure that I will get all 12 done this year, but I have been making progress! Several are completed, and another several are in the works. Over the next few weeks I hope to {Lord willing} share what I've done, how each project went, and lessons learned along the way. Stay tuned! 

Do you make yearly goals? If so, how are you doing with them, now that we are thick in the middle of it? What new projects have you tried recently?
