NOT To Do List + news


I wrote this list the other day as the kids and I were playing with colored pencils. My head was busy with all of the things to DO. So I decided to write a NOT TO DO list. I am trying to abide by my list as best as I can. 

It isn't so easy of course. Particularly the staying up too late and feeling overwhelmed. 

How is your week going?

I am happy to share some news with you. Awhile back I commented on the CraftSanity blog and Jennifer followed my comment back to here and she saw my wreaths over there in the side bar. She loved them and asked to include them in the gift guide of her brand spanking new CraftSanity Magazine!! She has a print edition or the pdf edition. I just ordered mine and the preview looks great! I am so honored to be included!

I have one other bit of news but I will fill you in soon. I have to keep to my not to do list and get some sleep.

If you have a handwritten list add yours over on Artsyville. And say Happy Birthday to her. :)

Congratulations on being included in the CraftSanity Magazine!! Also love the idea of the to-not-do list. I'm buzzing with thoughts on letting go of things, making space, and something always has to go to make space and room for the new!

Oh, something I meant to say about the inner critic, is that I've been trying to tune into my inner guide more. And I believe that what you focus on expands...

Anyways, guess it's the new year that brings me thoughts like this! Fresh starts, ways of feeling more at peace and doing what I actually want to do rather than something I perceive as expected from me...

Sorry bout the long ramble! Thinking loud.

Take care!

Excellent list. I will try to follow that list, too. But, I'm afraid I won't be able to eliminate worry.

Congratulations on those wreaths! I'll be checking into CraftSanity.

Yay huge congrats on the craft sanity. LOVE HER PODCASTS. I think you sent them to me didnt you? Your "not to do" list is fab too. Such a great reminder especially around this time of year. Im pretty much all organized so am taking it easy and enjoying my to do list, listening to holiday music and enjoying my new home. Wishing you and your family a joyous season. xxxx
