My 2012 Goal Art

{image credit}

Wow, 2011 passed by so very very quickly.  This year I need to learn to slow down a little, balance my life between family and working on the blog (which I enjoy), find more time for ME, eat more fruit, find time to scrapbook, relax and find more courage.  I am very shy and when put into a room full of people I tend to become a little mouse, I’m a great listener, but not much of a talker, I want to learn to change this.

2011 was a fantastic year personally and on the blog.  I really want to thank each and every one of you for your constant support, lovely emails and comments.  I hope you continue to be inspired and motivated by what you read on The Organised Housewife in 2012!

My Goals for 2012

 I am framing this image above, as I did with my goals last year and placing it above my office desk, to encourage me to stick to my goals throughout the year.


What are your goals for 2012?

love these… many of your goals resonate with me too… we sat down as a family yesterday and did some family goals and individual ones too…. was cute that my almost 3 yr old said he wanted to learn how to use the toilet… 🙂

Love it Kat i think I’ll definatly be putting an order in, such a gorgeous idea <3

Tam January 1, 2012 - 7:27 AM

Hi Kat, I’ve been following you for a while, in a silent inspired kind of way and love this idea… ok so I’m going to copy it as well. Congratulations on a fabulous blog, it’s like a training partner in organisation instead of exercise and keeps me motivated to maintain my house and life as I like it. All of your printable systems appeals to that part of my personality. Now to re-introduce the work part of my life (12months off for a baby.) and include that in my organising. So thank you for all of your efforts over the last 12 months and continued success in 2012.

Thankyou so much Tam, I am pleased that I have been able to help you. To go back to work will be an adjustment but a new journey and exciting journey for you, create a routine that will work for you.

I totally love it! I was totally inspired yesterday I did one up myself and even had some credit at Snapfish so have ordered mine as a photo print to put above the desk, and one of their photo blocks to put perhaps in my bedroom, and a magnet for the fridge! Thanks so much, as usual, for the inspiration!

Katrina January 4, 2012 - 9:34 PM

Happy to help, would love to see a photo!!!

Caz January 20, 2012 - 2:51 PM

What a great idea. You’ve inspired me to reflect on the things I’ve established that I value and set some goals for ME for this year (I’m usually setting/reviewing goals for our son who has autism). I used Wordle to arrange the key words/phrases in a colour scheme that fits my study and have printed it out on glossy photo paper. I’ve also done a matching one for a ‘mummy morning mantra’ I was given. Now to buy some nice frames tonight 🙂
