March Wrap Up and April Goals

I actually got a fair amount done in March!  Just not necessarily with the goals I had set, lol.  Let’s take a look.

  1.  Finish scrapbooking November 2015.  I actually did this!  Yay for me!
  2. Finish scrapbooking December 2015.  lol.  Nope.
  3. 4 Project Life layouts.  I actually did this too!  So, no catching up with scrapbooking or Project Life, but at least I didn’t fall further behind.
  4. Finish the dang cross stitch!  So so so so close.  And yet so far.  I am almost done, but I did not finish by my Grandmother’s birthday yesterday.  ::sigh::  There’s always Christmas?
  5. Finish the dang blanket!  This one has to be done by the 9th, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to make it.  I started on the final border last night and then I need to weave in the ends.
  6. Bluebonnet pics.  Well, they sucked but they’re done.  Getting all 3 kids to look at the camera and smile at the same time is way harder than it sounds.  And it sounds pretty hard.
  7. Summer boredom buster thingy.  We tested this out over Spring Break and it was a big hit!  I came up with 3 categories: Outside Fun (self explanatory), Desk Time (arts and crafts/ writing), and Badge Work (the next step of whatever badge she’s currently working on).  Then I come up with a “challenge” for each category. For example, her current outdoor fun challenge is to practice setting (volleyball) for 30 minutes.  Her current desk time is to write 5 letters home from Camp Half Blood as if she was Percy Jackson (her new favorite book series).   Once she’s completed 5 things, she earns 30 minutes of screen time.
  8. Move water table to front yard.  Haven’t managed to do this yet…
  9. Do 4 fun “educational” and/or crafty things with the babies.  Haven’t managed to do this yet either, but Mis is cruising along the furniture so I’m still calling this month a win.
  10. Plan something for the babies’ second birthday.  Mom to the rescue!  My mom planed a birthday gathering for our April birthdays and my sister made cupcakes for the twins.  It was low key and absolutely perfect.

I have so many projects that are “almost done” that it’s insane.  This month I’m tackling some of them!  That said, bring on the April Goals!

  1.  Finish cruise t-shirts.  Since I’m insane, I agreed to make 46 t-shirts for my step-mom.  I’m so close to being done, but I screwed up one of the shirts so I need to order another one.  The vinyl is cut and ready to go for the final shirt.
  2. Finish blanket.  Y’all.  I seriously only have 18 rows to go and then weave in the ends.  But it must must must be done by Sunday for my sister’s baby shower.
  3. Onesie.  Speaking of my sister’s baby shower, my grandmother wants me to make a onesie with some vinyl on it.  I have the supplies, I just need to actually design, cut, and iron it.
  4. Camp Half Blood shirts.  I’m too cheap to pay shipping for 1 shirt to replace the one I screwed up, so I decided to make a Camp Half Blood shirt.  I knew Kate would want one so I opened it up to my facebook friends and 3 or 4 people were interested.  🙂  Now I just need to do the design work and actually make them.  Oh, and order the shirts.  lol.
  5. Finish scrapbooking December 2015.  This is a tall order, and I’m not sure I can make it happen.  It would be awesome though since it would mean finishing up a whole year and a whole book.  I guess I need to sit down and get to printing some pics.  Speaking of which, I need to order more photo paper…
  6. Project Life.  If I want to avoid getting even further behind, I need to do at least 4 weeks.  I’m on October 2016…
  7. Edit Pics.  I haven’t pulled pics off of my real camera since February.  Whoops.
  8. Scrap 4 current layouts.  Maybe from Spring Break?
  9. Donate cookies.  We have some boxes of Girl Scout cookies that we need to take to the fire station.
  10. Sell Stroller.  It’s time to say goodbye to the double snap n go.  ::sob::  I’m going to try to sell it on craigslist.
