Goals for November / December 2013

Hard to believe it’s already the second weekend of the month and I’ve posted just ONCE before!  But, I look at it this way: it’s something I can improve on.  So I’ve decided to look at the things that are important to me, and create some goals around them.

Getting back to my artwork, Blog and Etsy shop.
One way I can help the Storybeader is by cleaning up my work space (again) and sitting down with the supplies at hand.  I did register for a Holiday Craft Fair next week at the Unitarian Universalist Church (816 W. Gore Blvd, Lawton), and have been making some inexpensive Mini Notebooks to bring with me - along with my handmade journals and paper beads.  If you’re in Southwest Oklahoma, come by and see me.    

In the weeks ahead, I'll be looking for some new blogging ideas and making sure I'm a more active BBArtisans teammate.  That includes keeping up with team obligations.  This morning, I created a new Etsy treasury for November called Gift Ideas for Kids.

Eating healthier.
Since I’m a single woman now, I need to make an effort to shop and prepare healthy foods.  That’s going to be interesting!  One of my good blogging friends from AlphabeThursday, Rocky Mountain Woman, has the most delicious looking recipes.  Here’s her Quinoa Salad.   And she always includes wine suggestions on her blog.  Check it out!  I’ll be looking for some good, cold weather recipes for the coming winter; thinking about cooking on the weekends, with the crockpot…

Pay some attention to my little ol’ cottage. 
I’m excited about rearranging the house and getting the smoky residue out of the curtains and rugs.   Guess I’ll have to wait until Spring to strip the paint from that second shutter door (behind the chair).  I’ll have my master bedroom back next week, after we clean the carpeting and move the furniture.  Buster (who’s a bit hairy but not too bad) loves hanging out on the bed.  We’ll see…  I’d love to buy a couch or daybed, for sitting around with friends.  But I’ll be watching my money very carefully for the next few months, so some of these things might end up on my wish list. 

I’m sure these goals will keep me more than busy for many months to come.  Send me your favorite (and easy) recipes - never thought I’d say that before!  And stay tuned.

Those mini books look like great gifts. Have a great show.

Your place looks neat compared to mine.

Hope your sale goes well - very cute little books!
No particular recipes here - I just try to make everything from scratch. lol - if it's a "treat" I will make it less often than buy it, thus saving calories and cash. And, to me, homemade is healthier because I know what went into it.

The mini books look great!! Good luck at the show.

And good luck as you settle back into your space and make it your own.

And your healthy eating goal is admirable.

And rearranging the house sounds like a great way to start fresh.

These are great goals, Deb. It's all about the time and energy, isn't it? The little book packages look cute, by the way, all tied up with baker's twine!

Your mini books look so cute all ready to be sold!
a great treasury! Thanks for featuring my tie dye T shirt!
Eating healthy is always good! You've reminded me. I need to use my crock pot more!
Good luck with house organization!
