Short Term Goals for November

I love washi tape!
I almost forgot it was the end of the month, and time to see what happened over the past few weeks!  The most important thing I did last month was to reevaluate my standing on Etsy.  I looked at teams and what the Etsy venue had to offer.  I left a longstanding team I belonged to because it became unorganized and stagnant.  Last month I also helped create a new team, the Blogging Business Artisans.  This was truly an act of synchronicity; unplanned and for the best.  In October, I rolled more beads and put two "lots" up for sale in my shop.  And I caught up in my art journaling course, Falling for You.

This month, my plans are:

Make holiday products
I have a few holiday ideas for cards and beads.  But I need to start working on these now if people are going to send the cards and make jewelry with the beads.  I've always been a little shy of making cards; see where this goes...
What to do:  Buy holiday paper for beads.


Start a new weekly journal
I've been wanting to start a new look to my personal journal.  As you see, I like to write.  But with what I'm planning, I don't have enough space.  I'm not completely through with my Junque Journal, but I'll let myself work in two journals at once.  Or not!  I'll let the future take it's own course.  
What to do:  Buy a pad of paper to journal in


Stay away from chocolate
A personal goal for myself.  I believe if I write this down, it will be easier to keep.  We do have chocolate in the house, like this Century Rich Mocha Espresso Melts!  (I got the box at work - someone's granddaughter was selling it for school).  The chocolate in the house is usually for DH.  And he likes to share!  So sweet...  Just Say No!  
What to do:  Think before I eat!

Good luck just saying no! I find it hard to resist when chocolate is around...

And I can't wait to see your holiday beads!

Good luck with your goals.

I am thankful we had so many trick-or-treaters last night. Less chocolate to tempt me this week!

I have multiple journals. I need one for my writing and then one for my watercolor and markers.

Your organization inspires me!

Starting the Blogging Business Artisans was defintily the best part of October :)
Good luck with your November goals!
Jesse just bought Cheetos today! I told him to hide them! He asked why...I said because I'll eat them...LOL :)

Hahah...the chocolate thing cracks me up. I'm the same- I'd just eat and eat and eat it. I can't have it in the house at all. Great write up about BBA too.

Good luck with you November goals! I can't say no to chocolate or else it must makes me want it more! All things in moderation I guess.

Good luck with your November goals. I usually set them for the month but I haven't had a chance yet. I should get on that.

Best of luck with the chocolate thing. That's a tough one!

Great goals! Best of luck! I'm working on getting more holiday items into my shop, too. I love to make cards but have totally gotten out of the habit since we moved here. I am planning to start up again soon.

Lori said...

Good luck with all your goals! I don't think I could do the no chocolate goal, however! That one's tough...
