I'm 37 - eek!

Yep, my birthday was Monday ... went out to dinner at the gorgeous Dragonfly on Saturday night with the girlz (Anita, Lily, her mum Brigitte, and her sister Emily), where an amazing dinner and Espresso Martini was much enjoyed!

Can you see my gorgeous skull waspie that Anita bought me?

And here's the fantastic eyeball hair clip that I wore on my birthday:

There are a few things I want to get done before I'm 38 ... so here they are, and I'll see how many I can 'tick off' by next September!
  • Get fitter.  Yep, I realise that I have to start exercising - GASP!  Anita and I are going to a class once a week that's a mixture of pilates, weight training and cardio.  And a weird vibration machine :P 
  • Drink a lot of water every day.  I've started using Habit Forge, which works on the premise that if you stick to something for 21 days it becomes a habit.  It's great!  I'm up to day 6 ;) 
  • Finish the Threefold Designs kids' kits, and the Red kit ... then stop doing kits for a while!  I'm going to concentrate on creating one-off art pieces instead. 
  • Create a one-off cross stitch for sale at the next SALA Festival. 
  • Finish at least one tapestry that is good enough to hang in the house.  That's a tough one!
 I'll be adding to that list incrementally as the year progresses ... but that's a good start.


  1. congrats and happy birthday, 37 was so long ago i can hardly recall it. have a really great year.

  2. Thanks Kaite! I don't think about age very much at all, but having goals is always good ;)

  3. Happy Birthday. Good luck with all the wishes and stop beating yourself up about your designs in tapestry, you are bound to come up with one! All your wishes seem achievable, so go girl.

  4. Thanks Mary! Yeah, I'm pretty hard on myself re tapestry. I find it pretty easy to design, it's just my technical abilities that are lacking! :P

  5. Hello again,
    I just found this link

    I know it's a long one but I thought you might be inspired by the fact that this guy had a resolution that he kept. Mind you, it doesn't inspire me, it exhausts me.

  6. WOW! It's hard enough putting make-up on in the morning, without committing to THAT extent! That really is hardcore ... I love it! ;)
