FabScraps’ 5 Keys For a FABulous 2018

FabScraps’ 5 Keys For a FABulous 2018

Hello to all our lovely crafters and quilters! Can you believe it’s the end of the year? Like they say, “time flies when you’re having fun!” And boy, have we had fun creating so many FabScraps kits for you to play with. We hope you have loved them as much as we do. Today in our blog post, we have decided to share our 5 keys to a successful 2018!

It’s that time of the year when we sit down and reflect on the year that’s come and gone (SO QUICKLY) and come up with ways to make the following a year a successful and happy one. You know, the whole “new year, new me!” thing.

Today we are going to share FabScraps‘ New Year’s resolutions and hope that they inspire you to breathe, live, love, laugh, and craft your heart out in 2018.

Leave a comment below to tell us what your New Year’s resolutions are. 🙂

1. Be Proactive!

You are in control of your own life! You choose happiness. You choose sadness. You choose success. You choose failure. Remember that every moment and situation provides a new choice and therefore a perfect opportunity to do things differently. Make that craft! Quilt that blanket! Scrap that page! The sky is the limit!

2. It’s Okay to Make Mistakes!

Making mistakes is how we learn and grow! We should look at our mistakes as stepping-stones, nothing else. We are all human! Realise your mistake, make amends, and move on. So that project didn’t turn out how you expected? That’s okay! Don’t be so hard on yourself. Nobody is perfect. 🙂 Always learn to find joy in the mess, because that’s when something truly spectacular emerges.

3. Set Realistic Goals for Yourself!

We were taught the ‘SMART’ method at school. It has stuck with me over all these years and I thought I had to share it! SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.

So, instead of your goal saying “to make a quilt“, use the SMART method; your goal will be more powerful! Set your goal as: “to have completed a king size quilt by 31st of July 2018″.

But if you purchase our FabScraps pre-cut quilting king quilt, you can have it done in 5 days. 😉 #JustSaying

4. Keep Trying Until You Get It Right — Do Not Give Up!

Try, try, and try again! In our “Why Do You Love Cardmaking?” Giveaway hosted by Create & Craft a couple of months ago, we were truly blown away by some of the responses we received.

What resonated with us most was how the common thread in some peoples stories was how they had gone through a hardship and it was cardmaking or crafting that got them through the dark days. Don’t ever underestimate the power of crafting. Don’t ever give up! Practise always makes perfect.

5. Start with a Smile and Always Have Fun!

Start every day with a smile. You have no idea how this will change your day for the better or even change someone else’s. Always enjoy the little things in life and just have fun!

We hope these 5 keys help you in having a successful and crafty 2018. Leave a comment below and tell us what your New Year’s resolutions are below. 🙂

We want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for all your support this year. Be safe, be kind, and have yourself a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year surrounded by the ones you love!

With love from Africa — The FabScraps Team.
