January Thoughts

As January comes to a close and I reflect back on this, my first blogging month, I have a few thoughts….

I completed just three projects, the table, the terrarium and the unscheduled lamp project. I did not get around to the leather cuff or the notecards as I had planned. In a typical month I probably get around to three or so craft projects so, in fact, I didn’t complete any more than I usually do, however I feel more accomplished. I suppose its because I took the extra time to plan out my crafty ideas, as well as give them enough brain power to write something and then finally taking photographic evidence that I actually did what I set out to do.

Yes, I feel accomplished and maybe even like I might pat myself on the back….

Alrighty…enough of that! Time to move on! For February I’m considering tackling another craft book. Rather than focusing on one specific craft for each month, I like the idea of bouncing around, working my way through books I’ve had sitting around for ages. These books, loaded with beautiful pictures and inspirational stories, seem like they might be just the right guides to motivate me. A few I’m contemplating….

Im going to think on these three for the next few days and see which one speaks to me.

One thought on “January Thoughts

  1. You should be proud of yourself for completing 3 projects. How many have I done outside of work? That would be none. Keep the ideas flowing.
