I am a list maker that doesn’t get to do very much of the things on my lists done… but the list continues to grow.

I could even try to do this…

and add things each day,
but darn it… the list would just be way too long.

I am addicted to watching Youtube and Pinterest to see all the things I want to make. It gives me inspiration, but it also gives me more ideas that add to my list of things that I want to make.

Some of the things on my list ….

Do More Crafts for Family
I have made more craft items and sent them away in swaps than what I have ever made for myself or family and I hate that. I have decided that I will not do swaps anymore. Yes, doing swaps gets me into my craft room and inspires me, but I feel like I am forcing myself to get something done, even though I enjoy the process of making the item immensely.

And my list of things to make for my family is HUGE. I cannot even begin to list all the things I want to make. I have Pinterest boards, YouTube playlists, saved images, written lists and more of all the things I want to make. I don’t even know where I would try and begin if I was to start. It is kind of silly, because once I start something, I totally get engrossed and enjoy it so much. It is the “start button” that I can’t find sometimes.

Blog more:

I sometimes, in my daydream state, write blog entries that never come to fruition. I think about all these elaborate ways to blog to make my posts more fun. Then what I really do is worry my way out of even writing the blog post in the first place because I don’t think it would be funny or something someone would even read. I know it is easier said than done, and I know it should not matter other than JUST DO IT because I like to, but again I procrastinate and end up with it all in my head.

I am doing pretty good with my photo journaling lately (see below*). But, I would love to write more. I seem to just end up spending my time on my addictions mentioned above.

Photo taking and Journaling:*

I do know, I am going to start Pocket Scrapbooking now! 

Family memories and photos is important to me. And I feel this is the most important of all the things on my list to get started with. When I decided I want to do this early this year, I started getting my photos printed, so I have a very large box full of photos waiting for me to scrap. 

And now, I found this phone app called Diaro and I really love it. It is super simple and easy to use, which is important for me. I tried having a small journal in my purse at all times, but it was not always accessible when I wanted to journal something. I can journal and add a photo to the journaling, then email it to myself. Then just download the photos, pop them into Photoshop and copy and paste the journaling right on the spot and there is the photo w/ journaling all ready to print. I feel this is a great way to help in my Pocket Scrapbooking. 
I made my own templates to use and this has really worked well so far. 

My first step….I must dedicate a time each week to do the photo journaling and prep the photos for print so as not to overwhelm myself. I am working on getting my workspace ready and I also got an idea off YouTube (of course) to have the photo album out in the living room while watching TV or being with family and slip my photos into the album , then later go to my craft room and embellish as I want. I LOVE this idea.

So there it is…. I did it… a blog post and wasn't hard to do at all.

Not sleeping?

I don't know why I have insomnia. Seems it started out cause I have this slight cough that is bugging me, which actually started to come about over this past weekend. I have this pressure in my chest also. I know this pressure, it is stress. So......  I hope to relax here, by reading blogs, watching a little Youtube or writing things (something I obviously don't get to do choose to do much).

What is truly funny about this non sleep night for me. I decided to read some blog posts I have saved in my online Pocket that has been there forever, like a year. The very first one I read was about a lady that had insomnia. Now how ironic is that ?

I sit in Brookie's room gazing at the walls. I told hubby earlier tonight that I want to dress up her room a little. Brookie loves the movie Frozen and I decided I want to get her a few things for her room from that line, like a blanket and a doll and poster. I would love to get her a little desk too, but that may have to wait.

I am going to be a zombie at work tomorrow, but I will make it through fine, I have done this before... the not sleeping thing.... and done just fine. My eyes won't look so good, but such is life.

I want... it's all about me !

I want to write in my blog more!
As you can tell it has been months since I came here. I suppose I found , I mean.. I know I found other things that can take up my time.

I also want to be witty, funny, organised, full of energy, more kind to everyone.

I want to be less obsessive about things and stop procrastinating about sooo many things

I want to be pain free. Seems the last week I have been having a bad bout of kidney stones. I drink tons of water in hopes to rid myself of them, but I think they multiply 3 fold if I pass one. Really tired of being in pain!!

I want to accomplish more in my craft room. Which is now in my master bedroom. (about that in another post).

I want Windows 8.1.

I want to fill my journals and art journals now! And I want to buy more even though I have not filled the ones I have.

I want all my kids to be HAPPY and enjoy life!

I want my husband to always know how much he means to me and how much HE IS MY LIFE!

I want more, but enough of what I want... what do you want?

29 things....

Random things about me...

  1. I hate shopping… any kind of shopping when it is for myself! (see#11 below).

  4. I love chic flicks, especially the ones that make me cry . Drives my hubby nuts, because he ends up having to take me to them!

  10. I love lemon yogurt, but hate lemon pie.
  11. I am cheap / frugal – something my mother was and I said I would never be… but here I am..

    What have I got to say, it's been too long since I've been here...

    Let's get some updates in!

    For those of you that so kindly read what I ramble about , here goes…

    • I am on a water fast!  It is supposed to help cleanse the body. I started it Monday evening at 6pm. It is now almost 9am Friday , and I am still on it. I have had nothing but water and my vitamins. I didn't even think I would make one full day. But for some reason, it has been easy.  I did not do this to lose weight, but I have lost 5.2 lbs. as of last night. I am not hungry in the least. I feel good. I had a tremendously weird dream 2 nights ago, which  supposedly is typical of those who water fast. My tongue feels weird also, which is another typical thing that happens.  I may try and go till tomorrow morning on this, but if not, no biggy.

    • My daughter's IDIOT husband tried to pick a fight with my husband when we went to "rescue" her from having to be subjected to his anger AGAIN.  He is supposed to be in a lockdown rehab place, (based on what they report to the court system) but they don't lockdown. I am livid as usual, but I can't do anything I have no control over. So, I must just live with the idea that my daughter is an idiot too for continuing to see IDIOT.

    • Oh….. WE ARE MOVING in a month and a half. Just to the next housing tract. It is to a house that my oldest son started renting 14 or so years ago, then moved out , but still manages. Everyone of my kids have lived there at one point or another. And now we will live there with one of my sons.! I am excited! Got any spare boxes? Haha! 
    And now some things I read or saw and want to share.
    Remember when?
