on my mind

A few things I've been thinking about lately:

After reading Jordan's post, I decided it was time that I take my New Year's resolutions more seriously. I have been pondering what I want to accomplish this year and I think I have a good start. I'm hoping to formalize/semi-finalize the list in the next few days.

Closely related is my new dedication to getting organized and motivated. Writing down my daily tasks/goals really helps me to follow through with them. My new Moleskine planner as helped in the process(thanks Jeff).

My life is FILLED with unfinished projects! Although I was busy sewing costumes, recovering buttons, making cards, hemming pants, etc. over the break, I still have plenty more to do. And don't think I've forgotten about the headband tutorial and giveaway - hopefully I'll have those ready within the next few weeks.

It's Primary time! I have spent much of my past week watching debates, interviews, and covereage of the Republican and Democratic Primaries. I even dreamed about a couple of the candidates the other night - yikes!

I'm already getting excited for spring. Yes, yes, I know, it's only January 8th with plenty more days of snow and cold ahead. How to resist thoughts of beautiful spring showers, cute umbrellas, lovely spring skirts, delicate blossoms, and warbling birds? Hopefully celebrating Valentine's Day, as well as some other little festivites over the next couple of months will hold me over. For now I'll have to be content with the anticipation and gentle reminders of spring, including this little bottle my mom gave me. :)
