My Big Goal? Sewing Summit 2013!

Oh I sew wanted to attend Sewing Summit this year! It really bumms me out that I am going to miss it. Seeing all the fun from the sidelines is going to be painful because I won't be part of it.

But that isn't going to happen next year. I will be there!

I have a plan. Those of you that don't really KNOW me yet will quickly learn that I always make a plan.

Anyway I've figured out how much I need to save to be able to go. With airfare, hotel (sharing a room hopefully with Melinda from Tilda's Twisted Life, can't wait to meet her in person), meals and some budget for shopping (there HAS to be some shopping ya know), I figure I need $1500 minimum.

I have an entire year to add to my jar. This shouldn't be impossible. I have my first big "deposit" of $496...I finished a bunch of accounting work for one of my private clients, sort of found money. Any other bits I earn from my work is getting added to the tally.
It goes without saying that I will be counting the days until Sewing Summit 2013 registration opens. I will be stalking my computer that day to be sure I don't miss out. This year the conference sold out in a matter of hours.

Anyone else out there dying to go next year and want to keep track with me? We could support each other until we reach our goal. Having quilty sisters cheering me on will make the saving that much more fun.

I'm hoping that Erin doesn't mind that I borrowed her logo and altered it a little for this post.

I really want to go also. I'm not sure if I'll be able to save any money to do it though, since it seems like anytime I save for something, something else comes up and I have to spend what I saved...

I sure hope you can reach your goal! :D
