Phew! 2014 was quite a busy and crazy year. (If you missed my year in review, you can check it out here.) With the turn of a new year, I've been looking ahead to what this year might bring. There are definitely still a lot of question marks but here are some of the things I'm looking forward to in 2015.
One of the things I'm most looking forward to is visiting the beach regularly! We've already been several times since moving down here and I'm hoping to make it weekly. I've never been big on swimming but I love being near the shore or on a boat. There's just something magical about the ocean that just makes all of life's problems seem insignificant and far away.
I'm hoping to become more involved in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA). It's a pre-17th century group with branches all over the world. I went to a couple of events in Ohio and really enjoyed it. Plus, I need a new venue for my Renaissance costuming now that we had to leave the Ohio Renaissance Festival behind.
On the sewing front, I'm still loving 1930s fashion so expect to see more of them in 2015. I have been day dreaming of 1930s beachwear a lot since I finally have a beach to wear them too! I've also been attracted to easy, practical 1940s separates. Packing is a great way to really evaluate your wardrobe! I need to replace my white blouses and am in desperate need of a basic black blouse! I do have a few TNT blouse patterns so that should be a pretty easy goal to achieve.
Packing also makes you realize how much clothes you have so I'm definitely going to let myself do more frequent and more complex costuming projects. I'm participating in Historical Sew Fortnightly again this year, although it's switching to Historical Sew Monthly for 2015. And I still am planning on making my Borgia dress.
I've also set a few personal goals for myself including drinking more water and eating better. On that front, I've been trying to cook from new recipes. I also need to find a good place to bike around here since falling in love with bicycling in 2014. On the hair front, I'm still waiting to see how Florida cooperates with my hair. I almost chopped it all off again at the beginning of December but my current plan is to keep growing it out so that by summer, it's long enough for up dos.
I'm sure 2015 will have quite a few surprises up it's sleeves too! What are you looking forward to in 2015?
