Wrapping up all of my birthday celebrations this weekend, I decided to reflect on what I have gotten done, and contemplate what I would like to do next. I am delighted to see where I have been moving, and am shocked at the progress, be it small, that I am making in my 101 things list, here and here.
The items that are crossed out below are selections from the list that are currently in progress or done. Intermixed in my accomplishments are thoughts about where I am headed next.
next, experiment beyond daily sourdough + sandwich wheat
make more quick breads on the weekends
I started with a tropical plant, and a small tree, succulents will surely be soon
I bought a red trench coat/rain jacket and a yellow leather purse with my birthday money
mostly cookies, need to get to those crackers
found plenty a shelf and lovely antique side tables + plant stand
now to start that salt-n-pepper shaker collection
my sister anna helped me make draft stoppers for all of our living room windows + front door, now to those other doors and windows…of course this project grew way beyond my initial scope!
then, I want to make some pillows out of re-purposed materials
needs a light sanding and another coat of sealant…but looks fabulous!
Next up, paint those walls + move him into his big bed
getting better, perhaps this one will be on the list for my lifetime!
a few digital-free days in February, want to start making them more intentional
My current top-priority list items that are up next, after much deliberation, and sorted into three categories:
create a new curriculum vitae, and marketing package
have a website designed + active, secure the domain name in March
start an Etsy store, mixed impressions
Artful living with the Craunlets…
frame more of the children’s art, pages from books, and photographs
store/display Bella’s preschool activities in artful way
create art storage for Craunlet art
Team Craun Correspondence…
organize friends + families birthday's and anniversaries on the calendar
make and send out birthday + anniversary cards to friends and family
print up a few styles of blank thank you’s
make cards + store for last minute correspondence needs
organize all wrapping/gifting materials into one location for easy access + use
That's all for now...and I am only a few months into my 1001 days. I am leaving February feeling pretty accomplished...and now, more than ever, quite eager for Spring!
