I have used this goal to cover my extended family as I have been toying with this idea for the last couple of years.
My family Goal is:
To Hand make all Birthday and Christmas presents for all extended family in 2011 (this will include any special occasions that crop up births, marriages and the like).
So to make it Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely (SMART) I have decided to allocate 1 or 2 members of my family to focus on each month. The month in brackets is their birthday month.
Jan - SIL (Mar)
Feb - BIL1 & Dad (June)
Mar - Big Sis & Niece (July)
Apr - BIL2 & FIL (Aug)
May - R (Aug)
June - MIL & Mum (Sept)
July - Jot (Sept)
Aug - Lil Sis & BIL3 (Nov)
Sept - Nephew 1 (Nov)
Oct - Nephew 2 (Jan)
Nov & Dec - Xmas stocking fillers and Kris Kringle as well as CC gifts etc.
So my goal is to make 2 gifts for each person in their month. One gift will be for their birthday and the other for Christmas.
The calendar above will be incorporated into my side bar once I have written up my Me goal (which is also split by month) and had a look at what extra quilts I want to make this year so I can allocate them as well. I will then recap at the start of each month what my goals are and at the end of each month see how well I have done. (It will also be pinned above my sewing machine so I don't get sidetracked which is far to easy these days)
So heres to a very productive 2011.
