Un-New Year’s Resolution 2010 **GIVEAWAY**

December 27, 2009 at 7:00 pm 46 comments

Hello Blog. It’s been 20 days since my last confession.

Oh wait! Wrong audience. *embarrassed blush*

I don’t know about you but this holiday wiped me out! I can barely remember what day it is much less who I’m talking to anymore. But now that I’ve had a few days after Christmas to recover I figure it’s about time to celebrate 2010 with a … wait for it… G-I-V-E-A-W-A-Y! *readers cheer*

Now I admit I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions. It always seems like every year making a New Year’s Resolution is like setting myself up for failure. I think my problem is that I make these crazy resolutions that are way too specific. For example: By 2011 you will lose 50lbs. See what I mean? I can’t even remember the last time I lost 5 lbs much less 50 lbs. But it’s not *MY* fault. I blame Tuesdays with Dorie. Yeah I said it! Whatcha gonna do about it? *getting into my Karate Kid crane stance* Don’t mess with me. I aint afraid to use it.

So this year. I say PHOOEY on da man! (I’m eating a 3 day old red velvet cupcake as I type this to prove my point!) I decided to set my New Year’s Resolution BEFORE New Year’s. I figure it would take away the stigma and maybe I’d actually accomplish it. I decided to call it my Un-New Year’s Resolution. Ta da! The Mad Hatter would be so proud. And furthermore. I decided to ban any kind of weight loss, diet, South Beach, Atkins, low carb terminology in my Un-Year’s Resolutions too. Instead I want to focus on something that’s been on my to-do list for a long time: organize my kitchen!

Remember my recent tweet about these vinyl stickers?

It would be an understatement to say how much I LOVE.LOVE.LOVE these stickers. Talk about organization meets kitchen chic! Forget the Ikea shelves and wall racks that my husband installed for me. My favorite part of my kitchen are these glass jars and vinyl stickers. They make me smile every time I scoop out a cup of flour/sugar/brown sugar.

To celebrate my Un-New Year’s Resolution 2010, Jamie of Studio JK is sponsoring a set of 6 vinyl labels to one lucky reader. *golf clap

You can even customize it to your kitchen with the color and “words” of your choice. I went with the traditional black b/c I like how it matches with my stainless steel appliances but you could be more adventurous with red or blue or green or yellow to match your Kitchen Aid. How fun is that?

Here’s the fine print.

(1) Only one entry per person please.
(2) Only those who live within the US eligible to win prizes. (Sorry my international peeps!)
(3) Please make sure you have a valid email address so I can contact you if you win.

    my un-near-year’s resolution is to finally land a literary agent. I’ve been trying at it but I really think this latest story will be crafted as much as I can make it so I hope it works!

  • 3. Mary  |  December 27, 2009 at 9:35 pm

    I will be training for a 4 day bicycle ride from Cleveland to Cincinatti June 28th through August 1st to raise money for the American Cancer Society. See it’s not a resolution to get in shape. It’s all about the charity…

  • 7. bridget  |  December 28, 2009 at 6:56 am

    Ha, I totally love those jars + stickers. I’ve been thinking about them ever since you posted.

    My New Years Resolution is to read some of these reference book I keep buying – On Food and Cooking, Photoshop tutorials, web design… I bought the books because I really want to learn this stuff, but I haven’t had the discipline to read them.

  • 8. megan  |  December 28, 2009 at 7:07 am

    What a fun giveaway. I love those stickers. I’m thinking I would be brave and go with the orange! Throw my name in the hat please.

  • 13. Rachel  |  December 28, 2009 at 8:49 am

    My resolution is to select and purchase art and photo enlargements for my walls. We’ve been in our house since August and my walls are totally bare! We’ll see how I do since I go back to work on Monday. Eep!

  • 14. Jodi L.  |  December 28, 2009 at 10:04 am

    Okay, seriously, what great way to look at things! My unresolution is to finally paint my entire upstairs. We bought our house a year ago and haven’t touched the 2nd level. Methinks it’s time!

  • 17. Heather E  |  December 29, 2009 at 8:47 am

  • 18. Cheryl in AL  |  December 29, 2009 at 9:54 am

    Well, I need to spend less time at the computer and more time outside. We used to go on hikes for fun. Now we spend more time on the couch.

  • 19. Cheryl in AL  |  December 29, 2009 at 9:55 am

    I retweeted the post (had to delete a word to make it fit)


  • 20. Jennifer  |  December 29, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    My Un-New Year’s resolution is to lead a healthier life and to learn to use my new camera!

  • 21. mrsdanigirl8  |  December 29, 2009 at 8:37 pm

    My un-new years resolution is to enjoy San Diego more.

  • 22. Margaret  |  December 30, 2009 at 7:37 am

    Those are great stickers. Un-new years resolution – be more adventurous with my cooking.

  • 23. Margaret  |  December 30, 2009 at 7:37 am

    I tweeted your give-a-way


  • 24. thesavingsqueens  |  December 30, 2009 at 9:46 am

    To eat healthier and keep my house organized.

  • 25. Suzy  |  December 30, 2009 at 11:17 am

    Can blogging more count? :) Such cute labels!

  • 27. carolina  |  December 30, 2009 at 7:33 pm

    My un-NY’s resolution is to get back to running when the doctor approves it after the baby is born! I just hope I will have the energy to get back into the swing of things!

  • 28. L W  |  December 31, 2009 at 7:15 am

    I blame TWD for the weight issues too! Damn that cookbook! LOL

    I decided not to make resolutions. I do want to be healthier, get more exercise. I do want to be content with everything thats in my life right now and stop wishing away time, money etc… I just want to be happy in 2010. 2009 was a really rough year for us. Hoping 2010 turns things around.

    Much love to you CB! MUAH!

  • 29. Andrea  |  December 31, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    Love those labels! Very cute.

    My un-resolution is to start giving away more of my baked goods. They disappear way to quickly in my house, but I can’t stop baking! Take them to work and give them to friends. That’s my solution/resulution.

  • 30. Teresa  |  December 31, 2009 at 5:28 pm

    My un-resolution is to find more peace for myself. Maybe some time for meditation or yoga or quiet reading each and every day.
    Happy New Year!

  • 31. MMG  |  January 1, 2010 at 9:14 am

    I tweeted too:


  • 32. Nikki  |  January 1, 2010 at 9:23 am

    Pick me pick meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee those stickers are super cuteness.

    • 33. Nikki  |  January 1, 2010 at 9:31 am

      Um ya I totally forgot to answer the question when I came back after opening twitter. I blame alcohol … last night was new years even and all. So ya, edit this and somehow make it work beechy

      Now, on to the question. Screw New Years resolutions, they’re always things where the goal is cool but the means of reaching that goal sucks. So, this year my only resolution (un New years or otherwise) is to go visit my Uncle in Key West and I can’t think of a single thing about that unresolution that I don’t like.

  • 34. Nikki  |  January 1, 2010 at 9:24 am

    i tweeted http://twitter.com/nikki57/status/7273767434

  • 35. Natalie  |  January 2, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    You rock my socks.

    My goal this year is to simplify.

  • 36. Savannah  |  January 3, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    Matching those vinyl stickers to your glass jars is a wonderful and beautiful idea!

    My goal is to keep my gpa for culinary school at or higher then a 3.5! It was a 3.7 last quarter, and this quarter I slacked off a bit and am now at a 3.5. Next quarter though, 4.0!? lol.

    :D, Happy New Year!

  • 37. Savannah  |  January 3, 2010 at 5:37 pm

    re-tweet tweet.

  • 38. tiff  |  January 3, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    My un new years resolution is to try to blog more frequently. My poor little blog has been severely neglected.

  • 39. stephchows  |  January 4, 2010 at 6:39 am
