sizzling summer

The first day of summer has subtly announced itself, with gray sleepy skies that threaten rain and possible thunder. I don’t mind the lack of heat, and of course I never mind a good thunderstorm. For about a week now, I’ve been compiling a list of the many things I want to get done this summer, crafty and otherwise… but mostly crafty. Because that’s what I love!

So here it goes so far, but don’t be surprised if I add more!

THIS SUMMER I WANT TO:

  • paint one wall in my room with magnetic paint and make it a collage wall
  • rick rack flowers

  • apply and stock up for Crafty Bastards in DC on September 30
  • embroider something on a golf shirt for my dad for father’s day
  • try to embroider a photo on something for my mom
  • sell my scrapbook stuff on ebay
  • figure out how to make these rick rack flowers
  • make beads out of starburst wrappers
  • get the sewing room straightened up and figure out what i can do with all this fabric
  • use lots of fabric so i can buy more
  • make one or two pairs of sleep shorts, at least one dress, and at least 3 skirts… oh and that turquiose shirt w/buttons
  • get a beading corner set up in my room
  • contribute to the sampler
  • try to write a poem every day and hopefully blog them most of the time
  • give caroline (little neighbor who just got a machine) and brittany (soccer friend who just got a machine) sewing lessons.. i would have so much fun teaching them!
  • ice cream/sorbet at versailles

  • get a raise
  • eat ice cream
  • through july and august, work at least 100 hours
  • no spending money – save save save!
  • play the sims some because i love it and haven’t played in ages

    Wow that’s quite an extensive list of goals! Some of my faves were:

    give caroline (little neighbor who just got a machine) and brittany (soccer friend who just got a machine) sewing lessons.. i would have so much fun teaching them!
    try to write a poem every day and hopefully blog them most of the time
    eat ice cream

    lots of random acts of kindess, try to make someone’s day as many times as possible

    Good luck trying to fulfill them all! I think it’d be heaps of fun. And those rick rack flowers look so cool! It’d be awesome learning how to make them.
