CRAFTY THINGS: 10 projects. Made nail polishes One baby sock Turned a lip gloss into a pencil Put bar tape on my bike (forgot about this one!) Glittered my makeup jar 4.5/10 = 45% So, I didn’t hit this one for the year, but like last year, I did do a lot of manicures and…

What is this?

Could it be? Am I actually working on a craft project??

November 2013: Goals progress

1. Lose the baby weight by the end of the year (37 pounds, to return to 145). I’m at 152, up three pounds from my last update. I think I gained back what I’d lost from my first week of work, and because Thanksgiving. I’m totally not going to make this goal, and I’m not really…

September and October check-in

I’ll need to do a November summary in a few days, but whatevs. I knocked two more goals off the list! I went to a museum and hit my savings goal for the year. CRAFTY THINGS: 10 projects. I couldn’t remember what all these were. Makes it hard to count. My gramma was right: it’s hell…

Project 15: Fabric card holder

Josh and I are always getting gift cards from family members because we live 2,000 miles away and gift cards travel well. Add that fact to the millions of other store/restaurant reward cards and I had a wallet that was bursting. I could barely fasten the clasp. I’d been looking for a solution for years,…

August goals check-in

So, I’m slightly behind here. Better late than never! Looking at this list, it feels like I didn’t accomplish much, but I finished two freelance projects that sucked up a lot of time. CRAFTY THINGS: 10 projects. I glittered my makeup brush holder. It’s sparrrrkly. 3.5/10 = 35% MONEY: Save $2500. 2250/2500 = 90% Pay down…
