Welcome to 2011

Welcome to 2011! Happy New Year from TodaysModernHomemaker. Tis the season for resolutions. Some personal resolutions that I'm aspiring to do different or try to do more of is:

- Simplify my house. Clear the clutter, donate and toss things that we haven't used and won't use. Everything needs a home or it doesn't belong. I've been reading some fabulous ideas in "Simplicity Parenting" by Kim John Payne to help guide me along my way.
- Along these lines I will get my upstairs cleaned up. It's our out of sight out of mind area, which has turned into a pack rat, unorganized zone that needs some serious attention.
- Learn more homemade recipes, such as chocolate syrup and other things that I would normally buy.
- Tackle the world of sewing. Knitting and crocheting are fun, but with two little munchkins I think learning to sew will offer faster results. My objective is to make cool things for me, but to be able to sew the boys clothes, costumes, and whatever is needed. Gotta start somewhere right?

I hope to life up to these resolutions since they're not to far fetched. No losing weight or other cliche resolutions. Personally it's not my style to do what others are doing. Just realistic personal goals that I've been striving towards for a while. The time has come to get them done.

Check out some other wonderful resolutions on Nourishing Gourmet's Penny Platter Thursday


  1. Hey that's the snowman I built while I was there! Do you already have a sewing machine?

  2. It is! Yes, I have an awesome sewing machine that I got my college graduation. It's a Huskavarna and makes sewing seem so easy. I just need to practice practice practice

  3. I need to get mine back from Mom when I have a place to put it. I used to sew and I think I could get back into it easily with all the free time that's coming my way.
