If there’s a word I want 2015 to represent for this blog, it is “INSPIRED.” With the beginning of a new year, it is always much easier to feel inspired. My quest this year is to stay inspired all 12 calendar months. In today’s post, I’d like to share with you the 3 Things I’m Inspired To Do More In 2015:
1. Craft Projects
I have always loved working on crafts. “Time” was always the pesky little kid on the block who seemed to keep me from doing more crafts. This year, however, I’m making it a priority to carve out more time for projects. These projects may include using a sewing machine. I am a total beginner but I’m excited to learn and practice! Can you imagine the endless pillow covers I can be making instead of buying? 🙂
2. Recreate Favorite Dishes
I am so inspired to cook new dishes this year. While the food will be something I’ve eaten for years, it will likely be my first time cooking them. Because it’s not easy to just run out and grab a quick bite of my childhood favorites (typically Asian fare), I want to recreate them and share them on this blog.
Oh yeah, I would love to make a Vietnamese Pho noodle soup like the one below. D-r-o-o-l! 🙂
3. Home Organization
You’ll probably agree that home organization is a never-ending process. I have made strides through the years in getting our home more organized. Nowadays, I realize that if I don’t maintain some sort of organization in the home, I would never find anything. I
think know memory cells deplete after having kids. 😉
Throughout this year, I will be sorting through things in my home and creating ways to keep them organized. And if I can get them organized and presented in a beau–tee–ful manner, it’s a double-win! Check out these stylish storage items from The Container Store. This is what I call eye candy!
So there you have it…The 3 Things I’m Inspired To Do More in 2015:
1) Craft Projects
2) Recreate Favorite Dishes
3) Home Organization
As you know, it’s no easy feat to stay inspired all 12 months of the year, especially during the long winter months ahead. I think setting goals of what you want to do more and making a commitment to these goals are good ways to start this quest. I hope you’ll stick around Beauteeful Living’s blog and join me as I share my experiences with these goals. If you’re not already subscribed to the blog by e-mail, please sign up here:

What are you inspired to do more of this year? Which of the 3 things I listed are you most interested in reading about? I’d love to hear your feedback. Thanks for reading and let’s get cracking on being INSPIRED together this year! I cannot wait! Xoxo, Tee
Definitely inspiration is important! Love your 2015 ideas! looking forward to seeing them:)
Great things to be inspired to do. I am always crafting, but really want to tackle organization this year. I am bad when it comes to that. If it is out of sight I let it be. Time to be more organized. Good luck with your inspirations!
Thanks, Emily! Good luck to us on this never-ending feat of keeping things organized 🙂
Mhmm, that soup looks delicious! *I* want to make it now too!
My word of the year is “productive” and I’ve found it’s really helped keep me in check so far.
Productive is a great word for the year! Thanks for stopping by. Here’s to a “productive” year 🙂
I want to do more craft and art projects this year too! I feel less stressed when I do, so it will be a great way to relax. I would like to explore new dishes this year as well.
I’m definitely on for the last two things. I plan to accomplish more this year too.
Pretty much the same things as yours! I am inspired more than ever to create our home – make it a happier, cozier place to come home too.
I think that is a great word for the year.. mine may have to be organization! that is my major goal for the year.. to get my entire home in ORDER! Glad to connect through the Jan Hobnob 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by, Lauren. Good luck with your goal of organizing your entire home. You can do it! 🙂
Oh my gosh! I could LIVE at the container store!!
Me too! Love that place.
Home organization is impossible at my house. We live in a teeny tiny apartment and we are just cluttered. We are looking for a bigger place to call home. Cooking at home is a great tool to have! I can’t wait to see you recreate some of your fav foods!
Aww, thanks so much Maggie. I can’t wait to get started!
I love your word for the year. Inspired is perfect!
I need to get into home organization, we have this small two bedroom apt. and coming from a three bedroom, it has been hard. We had to rent a storage unit just to put all the extra stuff in. We hope to get another three bedroom down the road so I don’t want to get rid of some things just to have to buy it again when we do move to a bigger place.
your inspirations rock! i am inspired this year to organize the so called our own home
These are wonderful things to work on!
This is great post. I Akari have been inspired to do more crafting and baking and cooking and organizing this year so far off to great start. 🙂
Thanks, Akari! Glad you’re off to a great start already!
I Am horrible with crafts-they would be posts of fails so I could never make it a blogging goal for myself! 🙂
Inspired is a great word for the year. I love all those colorful organization tubs. You can do a lot of fun stuff with them!
I’m inspired to invest in myself more, buy a new home and sell this one! I love your inspirations!
Organizing and crafting are two of my big ones also!
I truly need to take notes on the organizing piece with the boxes.
Boxes are wonderful for organizing loose items. Look forward to sharing these tips. Thanks for your feedback!
love to see what inspires people! Great post! xo Martha Kate http://www.leavingperfectionlearninggrace.com
Thanks, Martha Kate 🙂
What great ideas! Thank you for sharing! I love pho, that sounds so fantastic right now! 🙂
Awesome! I wish that I loved cooking more – but one of my “resolutions” is to take a little time to make things that I enjoy. I bet that will help in my dread of cooking! 😉 Love your post!
Thanks so much for your feedback and comment.
I am ultra organized, some might say OCD, so I love The Container Store, even though I do find them very pricey!
Creating Favorite Meals is one of my goals for this year too! I have so many recipes I have wanted to try and now I have decided to try them!
Those are great things to focus on! I love reading about all three- so I’m in!
Awesome, Valerie! Thanks for commenting.
Great post! I’m with you on home organization! That is something I am working on right now ~ I also need to include office organization!
Thanks! Good luck on your home organization plans!
I’ve read a bit about goal setting this year, and perhaps that’s a nudge that I need to do that. 😉 It does give focus to what we do.
