It is that time of year where we are all setting our New Year’s Resolutions, or in most people’s cases, setting our ultimately doomed New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t even remember what I committed to last year, but this year, I have vowed to only set manageable resolutions.
My first resolution is to learn a new craft. I have been perfecting my crochet skills over the last few years, culminating in this king size masterpiece ⬇️⬇️; but now, I am ready to learn a new skill. I have decided that cross stitch may be where my potential new talents may lie. Fingers crossed!!!!
My second resolution is meant to bring more happiness into my life. Who doesn’t want more happiness in their life?!?! So I have vowed to eat more tacos. I’ll eat all the tacos. Chicken tacos… ground beef tacos… shredded beef tacos… red chili tacos… hard tacos… soft tacos… 🤤🤤🤤
But enough about resolutions. It’s time to get to the good stuff. I have 18 polishes to share with you guys. This month, I will start at the end of the alphabet and work my way backwards!
