Wasn't that fun? Our little completion challenge was great fun for me. I've gotta tell you ... I marked some serious stuff off my to-do list ... a to-do list which recently had been growing faster than it was shrinking! And it was so motivating to see how much all of you got done, too!
And wasn't it energizing? Something done is so much more of an energy boost than something almost done.
Here's some of the stuff I got done:
laundry ... after three days of catching up from the ice storm it is DONE!
sewed patches on my daughter's Daisy vest and glued a flower on a play shoe.
caught up on paper shredding.
bought and wrapped presents to mail to California. (Even made the gift tags ... very fun.)
sent December newsletter!
birthday party number two ... DONE! And it was so fun. Thanks to all of you who posted about the treat bags ... just knowing I wasn't alone in that love / hate relationship with treat bags gave me a new perspective. I actually enjoyed getting the goodie bags together for my daughter's party. Want to see?
Kailea drew little pictures for each of her friends while I made strawberry cupcakes. Super fun. We had just a couple of little girls spend the night and made homemade pizza's and then did a little pampering with pedicures and manicures. The girls loved it! So for treat bags I picked up some lotion and body wash, a little loofah, some pretty soap, and a ring pop. Cute and fun! Thanks to all of you for your ideas and inspiration!
So ... lots of little things (and some big ones!) marked off my to-do list. It was fun knowing there were so many of you out there tackling little nagging tasks, too! We'll have to do it again some time!
There was one more little thing on my to-do list ... sharing some scenes from the ice storm. So pretty. So ironic.
crafting by candle light kept us sane!
OK ... better go get some more stuff done! Hope you have a great day!
