There are two things which I am starting for 2013, (not resolutions as I have not thought of them yet)
Firstly I have joined in The Useless Stitch A Long 2013 in connection with Its Daffycat, which is collecting the ORT (Old Ratty Threads, tend to be the ends of stitching threads).
If you would like to join the Stitch-A-Long:
1. Get a glass jar or other container and save your thread clippings. Some stitcher's include fabric trimmings, thread bands or any other stitching cast-offs they gather. You may continue filling this jar throughout the year OR you may empty the jar and start over each month ~ no firm rules here!
2. On (or about) each New Moon take a picture of the ORTs in your jar and post it to your blog. This is a blog game so YES, you MUST have a blog to be included.
3. Yes, you can use your current ORT jar or jars. This is no contest...the stitcher with the most ORTs doesn't win!
4. You should post a picture each New Moon, even if there has been no "progress" to show. We are aiming for "once a month" here...no whippings for being late, early or absent!

If you wish to join, please visit Its Daffycat and follow the instructions.
The second is something I saw on Facebook, its a jar of 'Good Things in 2013', we all tend to forget the positive things that happen in life and dwell on the negative, so in this jar you write down all the good things that happen during the year just on bits of paper when they happen and on New Years Eve 2013, you read through them all to remind you of the good times.
Also I sent of my HAED Pictures for the reward program - I am excited to hear back....
