Promises Promises


A little while ago, I was sharing some new plans with someone and they offhandedly commented that I always have lots of plans and many of those plans get left by the wayside. Burn!

I was huffy for a moment before realizing that they were right. I make plans all the time and it's natural that I won't be able to complete all of them. The problem is, I realize I should keep my lips sealed about my ambitions unless I am very certain that I will follow through and I should also make good on some past promises.

So, today I am looking through months of old blog posts and compiling a list of incomplete projects and ideas and adding a new feature to the side bar of my blog (it's just under my shop widget). This feature will be a long-running public to-do list that will remind me of significant tasks that need completing and show my new schemes. It is my accountability device.

I love making lists and I'm especially fond of the cheerful design shown above by The Small Object.

Eeek - you've put it into writing - now you have to follow through.

I suppose that is the point, but still a bit scary.

I love lists! I have a weekly to do list and then I get a sticker on the calendar whenever I get one done.

I'm so in the 2nd grade. ;)

Elise! I noticed that you would like to take a letterpress class and Montserrat is offering a two day workshop through continuing ED! Go to the website under continuing ED on the top, I'm signed up and it would be great to learn along side of you, Montserrat alumni get a discount too! do eeeeet!

I made a stop motion movie with play doh once. It was about dinosaurs and I was I think 18. Yes, I was super cool.
