These are not great aspirations, like “I want to be a better mother.” Those can pretty much go unspoken, right?
These are more of the bucket-list variety.
- I want to learn to create with watercolors. I don’t ever see myself painting florals or anything, but that’s not really what I’m drawn to, anyway. I prefer simple, like this (and I’m not sure this is even a watercolor, but you get the idea):
- I want to learn to crochet. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve learned the basic stitch (chain? I don’t even remember what it’s called…) only to forget it again and not go any further. I want to make something like this:
- Learn calligraphy. I know, I’ve been putting that on every list I’ve made for years. Maybe this will help me out.
- I really want to learn to quilt. Not quilt the way I have in the past, but to make actual, beautiful quilts. I much prefer the non-traditional look. Like this:
- I want to be able to fix my girls hair. My repertoire of tricks includes braids, ponytails, and the occasional (very) messy bun. I feel sorry for them.
- To write a haiku. I love them, a lot. I’m not confident in my ability to learn any form of poetry, though.
- I want to make jewelry. Probably not tons of it, but there are a few things I really want to try. Like this:
- I’ve always loved photography, and someday, when I finally get my DSLR I want to learn to take lovely photos.
- I want to make a perfect cake. Perfection in my mind isn’t super fancy, but looks something like this:
- I want to learn how to have pretty nails. Here’s the deal: I’m scared to paint my nails. I’ve always hated nail polish, but really want to try something like this:
So what do you want to learn? Please share so I can add to my mile-long list. 😉
