Twelve before 2012

October 13, 2011

Jake and I were reading through our blogs this morning and we saw that Danni from Oh Hello Friend had posted a list of 12 things that she waned to accomplish before 2012. She invited all her readers to join her and set goals for themselves! Jake and I took up the challenge. I love making lists and setting goals. It really inspires and encourages you to get something done once you're permanently committed to it by marking it on a list. You can check out Danni's list and learn more about the Twelve by 2012 project here.

We will share our progress as we check off items from our list. If you're making a list I would love for you to share it! We only have 79 day left...let's do it!

Here is our list:

1. Design our Christmas card
2. Make Christmas decorations...anyone have any suggestions?
3. Organize/create an inspiring work space
4. Advertise our design work
5. Get outside more
6. Organize our closet...this is long overdue
7. Make these picture frames
8. Learn a Christmas song on my Ukelele
9. Finish and develop the roll of film in my Grandpa's old Leica camera
10. Go to Disneyland when it's all decorated for Christmas
11. Make an apple pie
12. Build a snowman...this one will have to wait until we go to Michigan for Christmas.

  2. Fun list! Love your blog!

  3. Hello, I'm twelve for 2012ing too and your ukelele one made me kick myself, I've a mandolin and could have stuck that on my list. There's always 13 for 2013. All the best with your plans.

  4. @Sarah Roads

    Thanks for stopping by Sarah! I'll be sure to save you a slice of the apple pie I bake :)

  5. I really like your blog! You did such a great job designing it! I love #5, I need to do that one too!

  6. Thanks for checking out my list! I can't wait to see how #3 turns out... I'll need some inspiration for my new apartment. :) Also, #11 sounds SO yummy right now. Good luck!!

  7. *so* envious you have access to a Leica camera (they're so beautiful!). Best of luck to you on accomplishing your goals before 2012 :) we can do this!

    p.s. you have quite the lovely blog, too. look out for an email for me in the near future re: featuring your work on discover paper :)

  8. @Donaville

    Donaville that would be awesome! We will be adding some new christmas items to our shop soon.

  9. I'm 12/12ing as well. It's so fun to see what everyone else is doing- and how different AND similar our lists are! I can't wait to get started. :)

    (Also, ukulele=awesome. And I looove your blog header!)

  10. Awesome list! It's so great that you play the ukulele. Reminds me of Marilyn Monroe in Some Like It Hot! :)

  11. If you like, just name a Saturday and I will come help you organize the closet and workspace. It is absolutely the LEAST I can do to thank you for all the Photoshop help you've given me. (Plus, I think it's fun.)

  12. Hi Jamie & Jake! So good to have you join along! :) Love all the design and diy projects you have set in your goals, we should totally go to disneyland together, Nick & I just got a pass! #3 made it to so many lists, wouldn't it be awesome if we all finished them and blogged about all our organized/inspiring workspaces together? Hope you guys get all these done by 2012 - thanks so much for joining along and participating in the project! - Danni

  13. @oh, hello friend.

    Thanks for stopping by Danni! We got our Disney pass last spring. We just love it. Disney is so much fun. We should definitely go. I can't wait to see how they decorate it for Christmas!

  14. 10 & 11 combined would be a perfect day!! Good luck with your list - you have a wonderful Christmas ahead of you :)

  15. I'm participating in 12x2012 too! Looks like you have a great list... I can't wait to see the results of #9 and #1 (letter pressed, I'm sure!) I look forward to following your progress! :)
