Thirteen in 2013

2013 is here! Can you believe it?! For me, 2012 was a bit of a roller coaster and I'm kind of glad it's over. The whole year was just sorta blah. I don't know if it was the move or what, but I found myself being depressed and uninspired... a lot. I will not be looking back and I love the idea of starting fresh and I can't wait to see where 2013 takes me. I have a few things on my to-do list (both big and small), and these are just a few goals I'm hoping to accomplish this year:

1 / Sketch, draw, and paint more.
2 / Workout at least twice a week. (No excuses!)
3 / Pay off one credit card.
4 / Plan a weekend getaway. (I'm thinking Charleston!)
5 / Take more photos.
6 / Go jet-skiing or para-sailing.
7 / Buy a new computer.
8 / Re-design Creative Index.
9 / Develop a more consistent blogging schedule.
10 / Make a book of my Instagram photos.
11 / Organize and declutter. (I have a hard time getting rid of things...)
12 / Create an office space that is more inspiring.
13 / Open up an Etsy shop! :)

Have you made any goals for the new year? I’d love to hear what you’d like to achieve this year.


  1. I'm surprised at how many goals we share for 2013!! Drawing, working out, planning a get-a-way, a re-design, organizing...I'm looking forward to this year :)

  2. Those are some great goals you have written down there. I'm with you on the jet skiing and parasailing one!

  3. I really like your goals. Some of them mirror mine. (aka working out more. ;))
    I want to teach myself to learn piano. And I want to go on a big vacation this year.
    Good luck and happy new year!

  4. Looks like you have an exciting year ahead :-) Happy new year!

  5. I was JUST talking about taking a trip to Charleston! :) It's one of my favorite places. What are you thinking for etsy?! I'm excited for the new year. :)

    1. Everyone always says Charleston is beautiful! I'm really hoping to visit there this year!

  6. I love it! :-) btw your always re-designing creative index ;-)

  7. You have a great list - parasailing & Charleston sound awesome! And an Etsy store? Can't wait to see it!

  8. I'm totally working on decorating my workspace right now. It's so much easier to be creative when you are in an inspiring space.

  9. You have a great blog!

    I'm definitely trying to save more this year! No more foolish spending!

  10. Great resolutions! I have an on-going list of daily resolutions ;) They are almost always the same...hehehe.

  11. Love the idea of 13 specific things for 2013 and your reader poll above...what a great idea!!! :)

  12. Ohhh new etsy shop?! Looking forward to see that happen ;)
    Happy New Year Jess!

  13. I LOVE your goals! I share a couple of them myself. I've been selling on Etsy for about 3 years now - if you ever need any advice, please don't be afraid to ask!

    Happy New Year!

  14. we def have similar goals, but love your idea of doing a book of instagram photos!

  15. Hi Jessica!
    Just found your blog from Erica's guest post, and am loving it! Your design is super fab.
    Love your list of goals -- I definitely need to write out my little mental list I have going, and 13 seems like a reasonable, accomplishable number. ;)
