  1. Create a fun Girls’ Night with the Classy Broads and the other wonderful woman that I know (Done – scheduled for January 24) (Not done – I was too sick to host on both original date and rescheduled date two weeks later.  Will have to re-think this)

  6. Make bags for holiday gifts instead of buying paper ones (Didn’t happen this year – I was just too tired to deal with them.  Next year.)
