5 Crafty New Year’s Resolutions for 2015

It’s that time of year again, where the New Year’s resolutions come thick and fast.

Thought we’d put a crafty spin on them for those that love handmade!

1. I will organize my craft room.

We’re all guilty of this from time to time!  Whether you’re lucky enough to have an entire room devoted to your craftiness – or even just a table hidden in the corner of the spare room – every now and again it’s going to look like a bomb has hit it. What better time than the New Year to clear the decks and start afresh.

2. I will spend less on craft materials.

You walk into the craft section of your craft shop of choice and “Oh, the pretties!  I’ll have one of that, and one of that, and one of that.”
You wind up going home with armloads of supplies that then collect dust on your untidy work bench…
This is the year that we’re going to use them – as many as we can!

3. I will learn a new craft.

I know this is kind of counter-productive to No.2 – new craft = new craft materials = but I bet you’ve been wanting to learn felting, sewing, embroidery, macrame, quilling…. for ages now.
Why now make 2015 the year you give it a try?

4. I will teach someone my crafty skill.

A wonderful part of Walcha Handmade is that we run workshops teaching new crafty skills.  If you’re keen to become a teacher this year, let us know and we can fit you into the schedule.

5. I will finish a project before moving on to another.

Something else we’ve all been guilty of… starting a new project while the ufo (unfinished object) languishes in the back of a cupboard somewhere. It’s hard sometimes, when the fever of newness strikes, but you’ll thank yourself later if you finish the current project before moving on to the next.

What are your crafty New Year’s resolutions for 2015?

Or do you refuse to make them, knowing that you’ll never keep them!!
