Facebook Friday - turning a corner

Happy Earth Day!

This is the last Facebook Friday post I'll be writing for the time being.  I've decided to spend a little less time on Facebook and more attention to my artwork.  This weekend (which is starting Friday afternoon!) I'm going to :

1) finish up Lot #2 of my recycled paper beads and place them on Etsy.  I just sold my first lot (of music paper beads) and the shop desperately needs some more.     


2) get the pages ready for my new art journal.  I'm planning on putting it in my shop too.  Yes, that's two new products I'm involved with.  Will write about this a little later.

3) write up the description for my paper beadmaking class I agreed to teach in Norman.  The store, called Truly JJ, will be opening next weekend on Main Street, when the Norman Music Festival is going on.  I want to give something to J.J. so she can advertise the class.  Maybe a nice flyer would be good.

4) even though I'm hoping for rain, I'd like to work outside in the yard.  And I really need to go to the recycling center.  It's getting too crowded out of the porch.  I promised myself to get ready for papermaking when the weather turned nice.   
 
can you see our pet dove, sitting on her eggs?


5) draw my pet dove in her nest for the Sketchbook Challenge.  This month: "Out on a Limb."  Well, she's not actually a pet, but she's been out there for about two weeks.  And the nest has been there ... like forever!  I have to be very quiet when I go to my car, because she always flies off.  Took this photo Thursday after work.

6) finally, I need to finish the book for my book club meeting.  Someone is leaving town for the summer, and we are needing to get together earlier than usual.  I'm only halfway done!

All this should keep me very busy - I don't know if I'll be able to complete everything.  In the meantime, for all of my loyal Facebook Friday readers and commenters, I wanted to pass along Facebook's Webinar Center page that I've been eyeing.  There's free on-demand tutorials about Facebook Ads, something I was thinking of doing, but have decided to turn another corner instead...

Your pet dove is very pretty! You have a lot of fun things planned instead of being on FB so it'll be fun to see everything you do!

Todo lists always keep me in task...hope you get it all done :)
Your "pet" dove is so cool and so perfect for your sketch theme!

Those paper beads are fascinating? Are they difficult to make? I have doves nesting in our big cactus every year. When they are sitting on those eggs, they won't move for anything! Great photo ops!

Love those beads! I need to make myself some more :)

Good goal on Friday to spend more time on artwork. I need to make that same commitment.
That's amazing that you have a dove nest right outside where you can see it all the time. I need to spend more time outdoors also - being quiet and simply looking around.

What book are you reading for your book club? I'm wondering if you got to finish everything over the weekend.
