happy new year!

I'm very excited to ring in 2011 - it's a new year, which means new adventures and experiences!

I want to wish all my friends, family, readers and pandacub customers a wonderful end of 2010 and a great start to 2011.

I'm not a big fan of New Year's Resolutions, because it always seems that they're more of a joke to everyone, so I'm just going to make a list of things to look forward to, including:

1. new pandacub products: I took my pandacub Etsy shop offline in December so that I could relax and focus on my family and friends. When I come back online in later in January, there will be old favourites, some new products and some other changes to the shop.

2. new contests: I already have a big contest planned for pandacub for January, plus I'm also going to be running some really cool contests on my other (beauty) blog, Cinnamon Kitten.

3. a new goal: For the past two years, one of my personal goals was to read 50 books in a year. I failed two years in a row (haha), although I did come close this year, ending the year with a whopping total of 44. This year, I'm going to try something new - I'm going to take a photo a day and post in on my Flickr site. It will be interesting since it means I'll be documenting my life for a year, plus I think it will be fun to see what photos I come up with on those "regular" days, when my routine is pretty boring (go to work, come home, sleep, LOL).

4. lose some weight: ok, ok, this is very much like a typical New Year's Resolution, and so, yes, I'm guilty of falling into the cliche of making one of these, but seriously, I want to lose 10 pounds in the next 3 months (is that unrealistic?)

5. some other personal goals:
- focus more on my career
- buy a house
- grow both my blogs
- spend more time with family and friends

What are some of your goals for 2011?

p.s. if anyone wants to join me in the "photo a day" goal, send me your Flickr link - I'd love to check out your daily photos too!

Hey - i love your photo-a-day goal. I see more & more people doing that. i think it's a fun project/goal. =) can't wait to see the results!

Also, i too need to lose 10 pounds. =( This is good though - i know lots of people that have this goal this year so hopefully that will mean more motivation to stay on track!

Happy New Year!!!
Great idea for 2011. We are looking forward for a better year. An oppurtunity to start again and live independently and with fear of God...
