So, okay, this is much delayed.
Life happens. I’m not apologizing, and it’s another weekend so I’m feeling all chipper.
I tried to write but I seriously did NOT have the time because my real world had me in chains all week, slaving away. But it’s Friday!
As always, we start with the updates based on the last list that appeared here two Fridays ago:
1. Sort the fabrics I picked up from Brooklyn over the weekend. Done! I’ve even managed to wash a few sets just to make sure that they are good to go once crafted!
2. Write five topics to write about here and in my craft blog. I actually managed to complete this for both blogs, but while the idea was that the “drafts” would help me move forward with the blogging, I haven’t been able to hit the pace I was working on. Still, it got me posting, and there’s a new post for each site.
3. Gather the books that I hope to read in the coming days and actually write about it. I have the books, just haven’t had the chance to list them down.
4. Pull together at least one “care package” from the things I hope to destash and send out. So I’ve been “cleaning up” but have pleasantly rediscovered things I had made and bought over the past two years which I had misplaced. So yes, I got the one care package started, but haven’t sent out.
5. List 10 things in the “turning 50 good deeds” to do. I didn’t quite hit the 10 but managed to write 6, and wrote about it here. In addition, I have created a page with the post title, Gift of 50, (see navigation bar on top please) to keep the updates on one page.
I think that wasn’t so bad — even if it took all of two weeks to actually make progress. Again, I’m not killing myself over this. So for this weekend, here’s my Friday Five:
1. Gather the books that I hope to read in the coming days and write a blog post on it. I might even start drafting this this afternoon.
2. Care package work-in-progress send out. One of the sets I have to hang on to, but I think I can actually pack the second and send off before next Friday.
3. Plan the big five-o celebration. I’m very big on celebrating birthdays and “big” doesn’t actually mean a huge party — I just want a table of friends to toast the big day. And it’s right around the corner!
4. Find the loose postcards I want to work on and actually set aside time to get this project started. We’ll start with identifying a box they can all go into and then I will write about what I hope to do with them.
5. Draft a craft project calendar. I’m trying t plan for the year and get things on track — scheduling christmas cards ahead of the holiday season so that they actually get sent, for one, this time around.
It’s been a very busy week work wise and I cannot be more grateful that it is finally Friday. It’s been one of those weeks where I was too tired at the end of the day to focus on anything else but catch some much needed zzzzzzs. But the week is over and there’s finally time to recharge and relax. Tomorrow.
Happy Friday, everyone!
