Meetup: December & End of the Year Goals 2013

the meetup banner 2013

Happy December! It’s hard to believe that 2013 is nearly over. Looking back, it has been a rollercoaster of a year for me. But it’s not over yet.

On the first day of November, I talked about RESETTING. My goals for November where to simply work on personal projects, sort photographs from road trips and take some time for myself.

I would say I was mostly successful. There were two craft fairs in there, and a handful of other obligations, but overall I’ve really gotten a good start on resetting. That’s right, start. I’ve decided to continue my RESET goal until the end of 2013. I’m about halfway through sorting road trip photos and one of my big goals for December is to at the very least choose and print the ones I want to put in an album.

This is actually a great way to bring in Day 1 of 30 Days of Lists because my list for BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR is really just a fancy way of saying December Meetup Goals!


How was your November? What are your goals for December? Are you participating in 30 Days of Lists as well?


30 Days of Lists: Day 30 part 2

Earlier in the week I posted list 30 for 30 Days of Lists, but because it was our anniversary I wanted to do two lists. One for the morning and one for after the day was over. Here is Part 2:

Today I Want to Remember


Participating in 30 Days of Lists was really good for me. I’m glad I made it through and have labeled my little photo album and stuck in on a shelf for looking at another day. And now it’s time to focus on my 8 million other projects plus the 3 million that are floating around half finished in my head. This weekend should be a busy one full of both fun and work and fun work hopefully.

My top priority will be preparing for the Glastonbury Apple Harvest Festival, which is in just two weeks! I’m really excited as we have never done this show before AND we have never done a two day show before either.

What are your plans this weekend?

30 Days of Lists: #’s 24 and 26 – 29

Almost done with my first 30 Days of Lists! I have to say, I’m proud of myself for making it all the way through with very few misses/stumpers. I loved doing this and keeping it simple really was key for me. If I had tried to make it more complicated I never would have made it through. 🙂

List #24 How to Have a Better Day



List 26 : Rules for Being My Friend



List 27: Favorite Classes/ Courses/ Workshops



List 28 : In My Fridge

List 29: Next Month’s Plans


30 Days of Lists: Day 30 – A Special Day, an Anniversary

It works out beautifully that the final day of 30 Days of Lists lands on September 30th. Last year, on this day, I married my best friend. To celebrate I’m doing two different lists for today – the one below, and then another after the day is done that I will  post on Friday. The above photo was taken by our wonderful, wonderful photographer Stefanie Kapra.
