    I am so torn for 2019 as I am trying to buy a house and need to work like crazy to max my earnings out (semi-retired/work-from-home). But I need to ‘relax’ and sew some. But love this idea.

  2. Danice G says:

    Yay! I am linked-up. This is always so much fun. The prizes are awesome too. Thank you for hosting .

    I can’t believe it’s already December the 15th! As always I’m looking forward to the process.

  6. Are we somewhere posting 12 items we want to get done?

    1. Very good question, Sharon, thank you for asking.

      To link up, you can write down any goals that you have for 2019 in any format that you want. I personally do not list out 12 items I want to get done. Here are the previous year’s linkups for you to peruse to see the wide variety of how people list out their planning for the year if it helps:


      If you have a blog, creating a blog post is ideal. If you have an Instagram account, post a photo to your account to link up. Or if you have neither, you can take a photo of a written list and I will link it up for you.

      I hope that helps!

    I found your site and planning party today and tired to link up but found that it was closed . Is there a way to still link up and participate?

  22. mvquilts says:

    aahhh…missed the deadline to link-up! (funny, I would have been exactly link #100 ? 🙂 ) but I still love the Party and love reading different blogs and plans – learning a lot! 2018 was quite a non-quilty year for me, for many reasons, and also blog-neglecting year… so I am determined to change that this year, but also set my goals in a smart, achievable and accountable way. That’s why its taking longer… however, it is so inspirational and educational to connect with others who are doing it too – your linkup party is such a treasure for me! 🙂

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
