Have you ever wondered what/how much you make in a given year? One of my New Year’s resolutions of 2010 was to journal information about the projects I made, chronicling what patterns (if any) I used, the amount of yardage, and who or what it was for. I’ll admit after several months, I just gave up keeping track of how much material I used (sometimes it was less than a pattern called for, sometimes I used more if I ‘experimented’ with design and it all became too much work), but I never stopped recording all the items I made…. and it payed off one year later.
Not only was I able to see what types of projects I was making (apparently, for me 2010 was the “Year of the Apron”), but I was astonished to see how productive I really was (109 items in total)… even though I never felt like I accomplished that much. This year, I’ve vowed to do the same – minus the yardages used. So who’s with me in journaling their 2011 projects? What information do you intend on recording?
