Oh… Some days ago Chicaustin posted, in all of her cleverness, about a flikr group she’d joined. It was chronicling the handmade things they’d created in 2008.
With it being my most handmade year ever, I knew I had to play along…
EXCEPT- Apparently I, she who practically lives with my Canon in front of my face, didn’t take pictures. Or at least, many, that is. I made an additional quilt, SOOO many sets of monogrammed stationary, another apron, a children’s apron, recipe cards and seriously- just a ton more stuff.
I mean, I flippin’ stressed myself out FOR MONTHS, doing this handmade Christmas thing! Then, I was reminded of something KL said to me when she was here. She mentioned me not following through with my Advent thing, on this blog.
And I didn’t.
and it was such a cool idea too.
Then I remembered all of the things I vowed to post and never did.
And I realized what my problem is… I stick way too much on my to do list and can’t possibly get to it all… Sure, snapping a photo of a project wouldn’t take more than a nano second- but when my mind (and to-do list) are racing with seven thousand other things needing my attention- well… I guess it’s a little harder.
So this year, in 2009, I vow to change that.
I vow to stop and take deep breaths. I vow to take time to note my progress.
(and here’s the big one….)
I vow to not commit to it, if I can’t do it.
P.S. I hate flickr.
