12 Things to Do in 2012
make homemade hand soap I tried this and it was great! It's very cheap and easy. I'd use a different scent next time what what I have works fine. It's a little thinner than regular soap so I may try a foaming dispenser.
February- make homemade laundry detergent. My friends Kelsey and Joanne use powdered but I have all for liquid so that's what I'm going to try first.
March- make homemade wheat thins (found the idea on a few places, doesn't look hard and I love wheat thins!
April- use my new (to me two years ago!) sewing machine. I have never used one before but I have a few fun ideas.
May- plant carrots, beans, herbs, peppers for our garden
June- make Gracie's birthday cupcakes/cake/cakepops. Not sure which
July - crochet a WHOLE potholder. (haha! I've tried this before=fail!)
August- have our baby! Make graham's birthday cake/cupcakes
September- make homemade applesauce. It was a lot of work but it's worth it. I couldn't have done it without my MIL so I'm going to try to recruit her again! :)
October- homemade poptarts
November- make a good loaf (or multiple) of homemade bread
December- make Christmas presents for family and friends. Not sure what yet.
That's all. What do you think? I'm really hoping to try these things and learn some new recipes/crafty ideas. So, um....did you catch anything special for any of the months? That's right!! We'll be adding a new Hartman to the mix in August! I think that feat and making a cake for Graham's second birthday are quite challenging goals for that month. Ha! We are thrilled and so very thankful for the blessing of a new life.
