1. What did you do in 2010 that you had never done before?
I began to sew. My parents bought me a sewing machine for Christmas so I am excited to teach myself how to do lots of little crafts. Some of my goals for this semester is to make aprons, curtains for my classroom, chair backs for my classroom, and a duvet cover. Let's see if I can fit any of this in! ;)
2. Did you keep your New Year's Resolutions and will you make more for next year?
