12 in 2012 Challenge!

I was looking for some great 2012 challenges already set up online for me to join!  I feel like when something is a challenge or a game, I am more apt to work at it and complete it.  But I couldn’t find any great all-around improve your life challenges that summed up what Robert and I are itching to do this year.  So we made our own…welcome to the 12 in 2012 Challenge!

Here you can make a list (or more than one list) that can be 12 exercises you will learn, 12 books you will read, 12 recipes you will master, 12 homemade projects you will tackle, whatever you want!  You can even make one list that includes a mix of anything too-they don’t have to be thematic.

I have drafted up my lists and Robert and I are working on household list too.

Here’s what we have so far with links:

  1. Hi! I’m from the linkup at Money Saving Mom. Your goals sound great! Do you have any ideas of what Christmas gifts you want to make? And which herbs are you going to grow?
