September… I love you. You mark the beginning of Fall (at least in spirit for us Floridians) and bring with it the homecoming of the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Yeah, yeah, yeah… June is half way over. But if I was the betting type I’d wager that you are tired of that June desktop you enthusiastically downloaded on June 1. I’m just here to provide a mid-month refresh. That’s it… this is my new strategy, not just that I’m horribly behind schedule.
Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy!
Back in March, my friends Lynn and James, along with my then roomie, Christine, tackled an unimaginable amount of “to do” from my run on project list in what I like to refer to as a “Warrior Weekend”. I never cease to be amazed with the amount of progress that can be made with the right people!
Within five hours on a Sunday, we (with 99.5% of the credit going to James) accomplished the following:
Now, it all still needs a bit of work, caulk here, paint there, but I’m stoked!
I can’t wait for the next
1. TV free “T” days – that’s Tuesday and Thursday just in case you needed clarification. I’m a TV addict. I’ll admit it. I justify the time waste by knitting or processing photos so TV time isn’t exactly unproductive but I get so much more done when it’s completely off… and usually, I have more fun!
2. Give myself a break – we are our own worst critics. I set unrealistic expectations for myself as a norm. I plan to work on gaining some perspective, with a little help from my friends, and be a little more gracious with myself.
3. Do something creative every single day – anything. This includes 5-minute “make something out of office supplies” creative challenges amongst Skype buddies in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday.
What are some habits you are trying to develop? Any projects on your radar?
(yes, that’s right… I’m bribing you! Be the first to share a post from OneThreadThatWinds and get two-months free. That’s what reading the fine print gets you!)
Although I do have a nice stash of cards from the Cherry Edition of the Project Life Kit thanks to my awesome friend Lynn. That’s her in the bottom corner… she’ll probably kill me for this screen shot but this is how we work for now, conquering the world one brainstorm at a time, via Skype.
I finally sprung for the Poulain Camera Rubber Stamp from Plaid Barn. I’m a nerd for packaging and this camera tag that came with the stamp HAD to be included!
I love the little moments that end up in here like working from my front porch in a perfect breeze and the shopping scores for my new little nephew. Those are Cherry cards in the middle… yummy sherbet colors for summer days!
The highlight of the week was celebrating Dustin’s birthday. We started with a ridiculous meal at Prato then capped the night off at the Wine Room. I loved the menu, printed daily, so much that I let it take up 4 pockets. I am terrible at getting people pictures… I totally neglected my super fun friends, Kathy and Z, from My Urban Pantry. They blogged about the grub HERE.
I stinking love this project! I know, I’m a broken record but it makes me SO happy!
