My (creative) to-do list

It's a little late for New Year's resolutions (maybe I should be working on procrastination...), but better late than never I guess. I woke up to bright sunny skies a couple of weeks ago and was inspired to make a list of creative goals for year. I'm not much of a list maker, so this in itself was a little bit of an accomplishment! I also figured sharing my goals would keep me more motivated to complete them.

So here are my creative resolutions for 2011:

Attempt the ruffle cake
Finish my 2 year+ arm chair upholstery project
Host a fancy tea party (scheduled for March)
Revamp my blog (must brainstorm & contact Lindsay)
Blog a least once a week (I'm on a roll!)
Host a cooking class for my mom's club (scheduled for February)
Spend more time making my garden beautiful(sweet peas, rannunculus & poppies planted)
Refinish a larger china cabinet to house my ever expanding cake stand collection (not allowed to start until the chair is complete!)
Have a dinner party and use the good silver & china
Perfect my vanilla cake & frosting recipes
Bake for a good cause (need to contact the Family House @ Children's Hospital)
Remake Martha's bubble wedding cake for my 10 year anniversary (hope I can remember how to make those sugar bubbles!)

What are your goals for the year?


  1. Great job! A goal: To make an "attempt" at a ruffle cake like yours! Great ideas...

  2. Great goals! I love the idea of hosting a dinner party and breaking out the china. Mine never really sees the light of day! Maybe it should for my 10 year anniversary... coming up soon! ;)

  3. oooohhhhh....the bubble cake. I forgot all about that beautiful cake. I'll babysit the kid so you can make the sugar bubbles. I'm thinking Gman and sugar bubbles are not a good combination....

  4. Bubble cake was the best cake ever - can't wait to see pics of the next iteration!
