Goals for the Week

Wall art by jnjmetalworks

Lasts weeks goals were:
  1.  Photo finished gloves
  2. Add something to my new etsy shop
  3. Make the baked oatmeal!
  4. Finish an item from the UFO box.
  5. Put a new clasp on the fluorite bracelet
  6. Dye my roots.
  7. Finish and photo 3 of my new brooches or necklaces. 
Well that was a bit of fail wasn't it *laughs*

Life took me in a different direction this week.

I did manage to "Photo the finished gloves". It all started so well! but then I got distracted at number 2 and did a listing in my "normal" shop instead of my new shop.

I managed to make the oatmeal and very nommy it was too. I should really make some more this week as it's a great portable breakfast. (Recipe here)

And I finished an item out of my UFO box. Woohoo! I had to buy supplies to finish it off, but it's done. Woohoo! (Picture coming upa t a later date. I only finished it yesterday. A button bracelet.

My roots didn't get dyed, but I did get a hair cut so i do look a load better. However the hairdresser straighetened my hair when she cut it and I didn't want to ruin the straightness by immediately dyeing it when I got home.

And the photos didn't really happen too. Where has all the light gone? I guess autumn is here once again.

But it's been interesting to see how last week went. So I'm going to see how it goes again this week.

  1. Put a new clasp on the fluorite bracelet
  2. Dye my roots!
  3. Bake oatmeal
  4. Finish an item from the UFO box
  5. Declutter an item a day
  6. List a new item on etsy
  7. Get up to date with swap-bot swaps.
So lets see how that works out :)


  1. I find that making lists helps me get more things done :)

  3. I think I should also make a list of the things I must do because I never get anything done haha. Cool blog!

    1. Cheers! i find a list helps focus even if I don't get everything done on it :)

  4. I used to put my todo list on my blog but along the way I dropped it... guess I might do it again. Thanks for the reminder.
    And yeah. I like your crafts a lot~

  5. I love that you have a weekly list. I love creating lists and being able to cross things off. I don't make lists as much as I used too but I really should.

    1. I've only done it for 2 weeks on my blog but it's been interesting to see how things have panned out already :)

  6. It is VERY satisfying to have any list of doable goals, especially daily or weekly, so you can see some progress and not get depressed about how little is being accomplished. Crossing anything off that list is a boost!

    Here I am working on item #7 on your second list :-D


  7. I also set goals sometimes and the effect is always like yours this time: I achieve less than a half :D But it's good to have some goals. Swap-bot deadlines help me to finish things at time :) The problem is when there's no deadline and something is not for swap-bot :D

  8. Sorry your to-do list didn't get totally accomplished, but I'm really glad you posted the baked oatmeal recipe, it looks fantastic.
