Looking to the New Year

Yes it's that time of year again where we take a long hard look at our life from the past year.

2010 has been full of ups and downs but looking into the the New Year I know that things will get better. I'm really hopeful that next year will be a great year. So here are my goals for 2011...

Vintage Way Rite Kitchen Scale

My number 1 goal is to lead a more balanced life. With Altered Chic taking off in a big way at the end of 2010, it took over our lives in the run up to Christmas. I really need to be able to find that balance between work and home - which is much more difficult when your business is at home!

I am a Libra and this whole balanced thing is supposed to be natural to me but it is something that I have always struggled with. But I will be taking the first step towards this from January - I am reducing my hours at work (only 3 days rather than 4) so that I can spend more time in the week on running the business and leave evenings and some weekends free to spend how I wish.

With all this spare time I really want to start drawing again. All through school, art was my thing. After leaving university during the first few months (where I was studying art and hating it), I took a step away from my drawing and I've never had the time or the will to want to pick up a pencil or paintbrush.

I also want to continue making our house into a beautiful home. The projects for 2011 are the living room and the stairs. I've already begun collecting furniture to renovate.

What are your goals for 2011?
