I've been making lists and I've been making some changes to me.
this blog post contains some affiliate linksCrafty wise, I feel like I'm dabbling in too much stuff and not getting much done. I'm dying under piles of fabric that I bought on a whim, yarn that I bought for a reason (then promptly forgot what for) and half finished projects. Eep. It's actually getting quite distressing because I when I sit down to do something there is too much crap about & too many options so I don't know what to do first.
Breathe in, breathe out.
Right then, I need to start a list and set some goals.
~ then sort out my craft crap & fill those bgb's up!
~ learn how to use my new toy
~ plan, cut & start sewing 2 Adventure Cases (one for Joe, one for Laney)
~ attend a one day course on how to make undies
~ then make lots of undies for Joe and maybe for me with this pattern
~ make a Tinker Tote for a bloggy friend
~ plan, cut & sew a Willow Dress for Laney
~ start to make a plan for how to make Mum's Xmas quilt
~ plan, cut & sew a Matilda Dress for Laney
~ plan a journal of some type for Joe & his crystal collection
~ plan, cut & sew a BeachComber Pinny for Laney
~ plan, cut & sew a Jammin Jumper for Laney
~ cut & sew a t-shirt for me
~ Milo dress -- finishing knitting
~ study Brioche techniques then start & finish Joe's hat with the wool he dyed
~ cardigan for me -- finally decide on a pattern for me, swatch and have the wool ready to go for when I've finished my other knitting projects
~ finish crocheting the rainbow baby blanket
~ crochet the cactus (yes, a cactus!!)
~start a new car project - a shawl
Do you get overloaded with too many things too? Do you have a game plan for crafting or just fly by the seat of your pants?
Also, something totally NOT crafty is that I feel like I've knocked off tens years off my face! Amazeballs I know but honestly, this is just so good that I have to tell you about it! After giving birth to my first child (just over 5 years ago) my skin changed, for the worst. Perhaps it was old age starting to kick in or too many hormones from pregnancy & birthing but whatever the cause, I didn't like what I saw in the mirror until I tried this.. I thought 'what the heck, I'll give it a go just the once' and whammo, it was like magic! I popped it on at night and saw a difference the very next morning! I kept using it all week and gosh, I'm liking my reflection today! Actually, it wasn't until the lady at the Post Office asked me what I was dressed up for ..when I wasn't, I only had my jeans & sweatshirt on that I realised she must have noticed a different in my skin that is when I decided then & there to tell you about it! So go on, give it a try or not, it's totally up to you but it's now a part of my skin care regime!
