AlphabeThursday – S is for Short Term Goals

I spoke last week, in my R is for Remember, that I needed to continue with my Short Term Goals.  The last post I did was in April.  Yes, quite a while ago.  I find that picking a few tasks for the coming month challenges me as well as reminds me of things to do.  So here are three goals for the month of October:

LeAnn's Halloween banner.  So cute!  
1.  Complete the BBArtisans Challenge
For the BBArtisans’ October challenge, LeAnn is bringing us “Prelude to the Holidays.”  Here’s part of her description:
“This month, I challenge you to create a holiday-themed item. It could be a new listing for your Etsy shop, a holiday decoration for your home, a costume or special accessory for a holiday gathering, or a gift you intend to give to a friend or loved one.”
Maybe I’ll make a holiday decoration; don’t think I’ve done that in a long time!



2.  Make at least three new items for my Etsy shop.
I have been so busy with my 21 Secrets Workshop, experimenting and making things for myself, that I haven’t made anything new for my Etsy shop.  People must be getting tired of seeing the same old stuff!  So I might try some more of these little kits, which sold so quickly.  Or maybe something new, like a holiday treat!



3. Get my house in order
October is going to be a busy month.  I’m flying to see family on the east coast - I might have to find someone to feed Buster, rather than leaving him at Hotel Vet.  And I should be living alone by the end of the month.  I might have to buy a television and perhaps pay a friend to help me clean the yard and move furniture, if Danny is not around.  With any luck, the weather will still be nice enough to work outside.   That’s a lot to demand – hopefully some things will get done.

It's good to know that I'm not the only one who has a mop in my backyard!! LOL -- your backyard pic gave me a belly laugh!
I like your paper bead jewelry kits -- they are a great idea!

Goals are fine, but be sure to keep some special time for yourself.

There always seems to be boatloads of things to do about the house and yard.
Your jewelry kits are great. Even if you add something new, you should definitely put these back in the shop. (great holiday gifts, too!)

I always love how you put together such realistic goals. These are all wonderful ambitions for October, and I wish you the best of luck with them. I look forward to seeing your new shop items.
