Last Weeks Wishes #1 were:

1. To create a gratitude journal – I haven’t had a chance to start this.

2. To take a photography course – I register in a course that will start June 30.  I’m excited about this.  I will take all of you on this journey with me.

3. Set up an email newsletter on my blog – I haven’t completed this but I did start.

4. Set a date that my daughter will post on her blog – The date is Friday, that way both of us have time to sit and work on her blog.

5. Get some sleep – I’ve made a conscience effort to get to my bed before 12 midnight.  I want to bring that down to 10 but that might be a little hard.

 

This Weeks Wishes #2 are:

1. TO CREATE A GRATITUDE JOURNAL

2. COMPLETE MY EMAIL NEWSLETTER FOR MY BLOG

3.  STICK TO AN IMPORTANT DEADLINE

I was asked to participate in a creative blog hop and I have to stick to my deadlines.  This is a first for me so I’m so excited.  I want everything to go right!

I only have three wishes this week because my last wish is a big one for me.  I’m so excited, I’m getting things done and having fun doing it.

If you want to join in on the fun, you can either click the Weekly Wishes banner above or click here.  Hope to see you there.

Shhhh, I Have Something To Tell You…..

Hello everyone!  Today I have something to share with all of you.  No cards or projects today.  I know, I know how can that be but I have some exciting news for all of you.

Are you ready?

A fellow blogger, Elle from Hey Jayel introduced me to a blog that specializes in-goal setting.  Each week, starting Monday you set Weekly Wishes and you try your best to get those wishes accomplished.  I think that is such a great idea.  It holds you accountable for everything that’s on that list.

So I’m going to post my Weekly Wishes every Monday and I hope all of you take this goal setting journey with me.  I’m going to stick to no more than 5 wishes a week, sometimes it might be less.  My wishes will be things I really want to get done.  This will be a serious mission for me. So here we go…..

Here is my list of Weekly Wishes:

1. TO CREATE A GRATITUDE JOURNAL

I’ve always wanted to create a gratitude journal after watching Oprah show on gratitude.  I have so much to be grateful for that I need to write them down. I also want to be an example to my children that we must always be thankful no matter what.

2. TO TAKE A PHOTOGRAPHY COURSE

Taking pictures of my project that I post on my blog is an everyday task but I’m not please with how they turn out.  I have the camera, the lens and the tripod that everyone is using but I can’t get it together.  I really need someone to teach me how to use my camera, what the settings mean and do and white balance.  *You might see this wish until I have a course that is affordable.*

3.  SET UP A EMAIL NEWSLETTER ON MY BLOG

I recently took a class on how to Build a Successful Creative Blog with April Bowles and it was awesome!! In this class she taught us how to write, create, and market a successful blog so that it stands out in the crowd.  One of the things, she taught me was to have an opt-in email newsletter form.  I want to set that up on my blog.

4.  SET A DATE THAT MY DAUGHTER WILL POST ON HER BLOG

My seven-year old has a blog and I’ve been neglecting it.  She is a crafter too and has a lot to post but I haven’t found the time to really dedicate to it.  I want to change that and stick to it.

5.  LAST BUT NOT LEAST….GET SOME SLEEP!!

I do not get enough sleep.  Right now it is 11:30 PM EST.  I probably won’t get to bed until about 2 AM because I have to write my next post.  I have to get up at 6, so how much sleep is that.  4 hours….that isn’t enough at all.  So I really need to set a time to get into my bed so I can be fully functioning in the morning.

So here you go, this is my list!! I’m so excited to see how many of these things I can get done.  I will keep you posted on my new venture.

Let me know what you think or if you any solutions to any of my goals.
