I am grateful for my family. I like to recognize this gratitude creatively with photos every year. Therefore, this month creativity is coming from a different angle. I will create objects with my photos that also make great keepsakes. This is a yearly tradition for me and one that helps me see all the great things and all the growth that occured over the year.
Do one creative thing daily. Minimum of 15 minutes drawing, writing, experimenting.
Get 7 and a half hours sleep a night.
Exercise three times per week doing exercises I enjoy.
Organize photos. Photos are a great way to remind myself of all I have to be grateful for in my life. I want to organize them so I have a good recording keeping system for them (and do not have a heart attack at the thought of something happening to my computer). Ideally I’d like to make backups of all my photos (time wise, that probably won’t happen but it’s just a goal to aim for, so we will see:).
Make calendars. I make calendars for the grandparents as gifts to show them we are grateful for their involvement in our lives. I won’t finish them this month but I’d like to get a good start on them.
Make baby books for Q and M’s first year. I have three baby photo books for C for his first year. I have one each for Q and M for their first four months. I want to finish the books for Q and M’s first year at least so no one feels left out down the road.
Make one new board book for the kids with the photos. This is something I have done in the past for C and Q but I have none that include M. Now that she is older, I want one that comes from her point of view.
I have a feeling these goals may linger into December…
