Short Term Goals for July

Time to choose some new short term goals.  Which means I also need to look back to see what I accomplished this month (I used my Letter G in AlphabeThursday for my Short Term Goals post!)  

In July I completed my newsletter research and created my first newsletter.  Yay!  If you're not a subscriber, please come and join me in August for Newsletter #2.  I plan to supplement my blog with info and tips.  Other goals from this month?  I didn't make any notecards that I'd willing to sell.  And I didn't walk in the park everyday, but I am walking more.  

This month, my goals are very different from each other:

1)  Go for a walk
I need to keep exercising.  Which means get out and walk at least 3 times a week.  On the weekend, I can get DH and Buster to come along.

2) Challenge myself
Last month, I completed a number of challenges, which helped me create new pages in my art journal.  That also made it possible for more blog posts.  Need to do that again!  I participated in the BBArtisans Team Challenge (interested in joining the team?), the Sketchbook Challenge, two Art Journaling Ning challenges and the prompt over at the Ideas of Inspiration blog.

3) Make some magnets
I bought materials for making magnets a few weeks ago, but never got around to putting them together.  Rose (Random Creative) has a nice HubPages post that talks about three different methods.  I decided if I was going to participate in any fall/winter craft shows, I needed to have to small items, like magnets!

Keep up the great work with your walking! And I can't wait to see your magnets...they'll be great for shows!

These are great, very attainable goals! And yes, you'll definitely want to have a range of items if you do shows. People love little goodies!

Those are great goals! Buster is getting big! He looks very happy too! Magnets are a great idea for craft shows. Guess I need to add those to my list too!

Great goals! I love that you are making goals for yourself that are both realistic and things that you are actually excited to do!

What a beautiful place to go walking! Glad you accomplished many of your goals.

Great goals as always! Hopefully it will be a little cooler so we can all get out and walk more. Good luck with the challenges. Thanks for the shout out for the magnets! I'm so excited that you're going to give that a try. I'm actually working on couple more articles about magnets this month and will make sure to send them your way when I have them finished.

Having buster can make taking walks easier to accomplish.
