Short Term Goals - November 2012

I'm thrilled that this month went by so quickly.  I hope the next month does too!  The  three things I plan to do for November are:

1) Do my best to exercise my legs and find a physical therapist.
I've been exercising, but now my right hand is in pain.  Am I using it too much, to wheel myself around?  My goal is to stay out of pain and talk to the doctor (again) about finding a physical therapist.  It's never too early to make an appointment.

2) Roll some more paper beads.
Get more beads rolled and on a nice day, go outside and shellac them.  Maybe make some jewelry with the beads and put it in my Etsy shop.

3) Make a new art journal.
I'm thinking if I want to enter some art in the Lawton Arts Council art show next spring, I'll want some things made that I can choose from.  Hopefully I can sell something too.  So, my plan is to look for some new techniques.  I found a neat step-by-step tutorial  by Roc Nicholas for a Coffee Cup Journal in Art Journaling.  Need to try it!

Good luck with all your goals. :) I hope the pain in your hand goes away soon, too; that sucks if it's from wheeling yourself around.

Good luck! And I hope you get the pain in your hand figured out ASAP. Maybe your doctor will prescribe regular hand massages to help the muscle relax!

Good luck finding the time to get creative this month!

These are great goals Deb! I hope you find a therapist you both like and who will heal you quickly!
Can't wait to see the new beads and jewelry!
And your new art journal sounds cool too!
