16 GOALS FOR 2016

16 Goals for 2016

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas & New Year with your family!

We had a great week! We spent time with almost everyone in our immediate family (both mine and my husbands), plus we had a lot of extended family over to visit, too.

But, personally, I’m glad 2015 is over. It started as an incredibly hectic year for us and while it settled on a calm note, I’m ready for a fresh start.

Despite this past year starting out so completely crazy, I still managed to check off quite a few things on my goal list.

Here’s a peek at some of my accomplishments throughout the past year…


  • I gave our Main Bathroom a makeover for less than $100.00!
  • Updated our daughters’ bedroom for less than $300.00!
  • Started/ALMOST finished our master bedroom/bathroom makeover.
  • Grew/Sort of Maintained/Harvested my first in-ground garden.
  • I canned/preserved a bunch of vegetables and apples.
  • Started using and learning more about essential oils for home remedies.


But, of course, there is so much more I want to do in this life!

In fact, I’ll probably never accomplish everything that I want to do, but I’m sure going to try!

This year alone I have quite a few things I want to do. So, I thought I’d be more productive if I broke down my goals into smaller chunks.

And just for fun, because it’s 2016, I made myself stop at 16 goals. Instead of writing out 1 giant list of goals, I made 4 small lists of 4 goals for each “category” of my life.

16 Goals for 2016


  • Recreate “date night” with the husband & do something fun with the girls at least 1 a month
  • Go on 1 week-long family vacation this year
  • Learn and put more effort into producing and making our food
  • Focus more on creative recycling and frugality


  • Finish Master Bedroom Makeover
  • Start/Finish Laundry Room Makeover
  • Start/Finish Kitchen Makeover
  • Declutter and Minimize



  • Update listings & Declutter – Add new photos, beef up product descriptions and remove old products that are outdated or don’t sell well.
  • Add more designs to current product lines on Etsy shop
  • Add more designs to Zazzle store
  • Introduce 2 new product lines (Hint…neither one is printable!)


  • Update logo
  • Update website design & layout
  • Post 4 to 5 times each week
  • Write posts 1 to 2 week(s) ahead

I know it seems like quite a lot to accomplish in 1 short year and maybe it is. If I don’t finish it all this year, that’s okay. As long as I keep moving forward and checking things off the list…I’m happy.

I hope my lists inspire you to make your own 16 Goals for 2016.

I promise…every time you check off an item on your list, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment, a sense of completion.

And that, my friends, is enough to make you push on and move forward everyday. No matter what!

Have an Awesome Year!
