25 things to do before I turn 26

Inspired by A Beautiful Mess, I decided to make a to do list of goals for the 25th year of my life.

I had a great birthday with friends and family. I even had a carrot cake with 25 candles (pictured above).

Without further ado, the list:

  1. Make beautiful dresses for myself
  2. Send ~homemade~ birthday, Christmas, Valentine, and just cause cards to people I love (especially immediate family) *bonus points for handmade presents*
  3. Start an etsy shop (sell patterns, hndmade kids clothes, handmade western shirts, vintage?)
