13 by 2013

I read a really inspiring post on August Empress last week, sharing the top 13 things that Jo would like to achieve before 2013. Why wait for New Year's resolutions, when you can get git r done, I ask you?

I'm all about getting up to exercise the day before I am supposed to start. And I love making lists. Then I read Jaclyn's 13 before 2013 goals over on Little Paper Trees, and felt like it was a great sign to put together my own: 

Re-launch Bondville on Wordpress with brand-spanking new design (can't wait).

Clean up the craft room/office.

Try liquid eyeliner and find the perfect rose gold glitter nail polish.

Make a cute singlet top for myself using this Libery fabric (a sweet gift from my friend Karla) and this Wiksten pattern.

Try a Zumba class.
Visit my friend Kim and meet her daughter.

Book at mini holiday trip to Melbourne.

Host my first online marketing + social media for small businesses workshop.

Do the Spit Bridge to Manly walk.

Make bunting for my little one's room.

Go camping in the Bouddi National Park.

See the 2012 Sculpture By The Sea exhibition.

Buy my big girl's first school uniform.

I'd love to see your 13 goals too! Let me know, and I will link back to them right here :)

  1. Wow! What a great list... I'm sure you can do it! :)
    I have about 1,000 things on my to do list and have no idea where to start... I better start making a big list and start crossing them off! :)

    ps. I am very interested in no.8... sounds very interesting!

  2. What a great idea, Steph! 13 might be beyond me 'cos I got a list of 237 things I HAVE to get done before 2013 and then I can think about the WANT to get one bit!!! Happy times doing your 13. x

  3. You can do,it all Steph. I live on the Manly to spit walk so can join you if you like. It is a lot of fun.
    I have a remarkably similar list.
    Camping is booked for next weekend if you want to join us?

  4. Yay Steph, great list. How can I get mine down to 13 I wonder?


Your comments make my day :)
