Take an Online Class in 2014

There's something about starting a new year.  It's full of hope and happy expectations for a better coming year.  There's the hope of making it happier, more productive, and richer (both monetarily and momentarily) than last year.  There's the hope of finally realizing dreams.  There's the hope of learning new things.

I've decided instead of having all my usual BIG goals for the year, I'm going to try and have a few goals each month.  I want to try and learn one new thing each month in 2014.  I hope this will help me to focus on "me" a little this year.  It will help me to grow as a person, as a mom, as a blogger, and as a homemaker.

Craftsy I was pretty happy to have discovered Craftsy to help me to complete this goal. Craftsy is a community that offers a huge selection of online crafting classes from some of the best instructors from around the world.  You can watch your class from anywhere, at anytime, with any Internet connected device.  How awesome is that?

There are so many things I'd like to learn this year.

I have always wanted to learn to quilt.  This Scrap Quilting Class looks perfect.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Butter cream frosting.  How fun would it be to get to play in it for a class?  Then you'd have to practice with it.  The "trials" of learning new skills.  (Happy sigh.)

I really could improve my photography skills and could use this Family Photography Class to do that.  When I take a picture, I can see it in my head as I'd like, but it never really turns out looking like that.  I definitely need to learn the ins and outs of my camera and how to make the most of it this year.

I have a fetish for bags.  They are my weakness and I must own a ton of them.  How much easier on the pocket book would it be for me if I could make my own?  This Bag Making Basics class would work, plus its FREE.  Can't beat that for a great way to try one of Craftsy's classes and learn something new this year.

There are so many great classes that I should be able to meet my goal of learning something new each and every month this coming year.  Then, no matter what else happens, I'll have made myself a little better in 2014.

What about you?  Do you have any goals this year?  Are you planning to learn a new skill or hobby?
