Weekly Wishes

Time for Weekly Wishes with Melyssa over at The Nectar Collective.  I thought today would be an awesome opportunity for me to organize my thoughts and goals for the week!

1. Get the new camera strap designs sewed and listed! I currently offer the camera strap covers, which offers more padding for the strap that comes with the camera (at my Etsy store here) But my strap often gets twisted around and so I came up with a new strap design that is awesome! I can't wait to show you guys!

2. Scour Craigslist for a solid wood dresser at a decent price. You would be surprised how much pure junk is on Craigslist! I am sick of buying particle board bookshelves and dressers and they fall apart! So the hunt is on for a solid wood dresser that I can hide all of my craft supplies in. I almost look like a hoarder here because no matter how much I straighten up, craft supplies look like a bunch of junk piled up on the shelf!


3. Dwindle said craft supplies to what I actually use, and sell the rest on the Etsy store.  I don't need most of this, and will probably never use it, so my goal is to bundle up the surplus and sell it. It will eliminate most of the clutter... hopefully!

4. Read the two library books I have checked out.  I know it sounds like a no-brainer, but lately it seems impossible for me to sit still! I feel like I somehow got behind in chores and work things and now feel the need to complete everything right away! Ironically, my library books are about relaxing and enjoying the moment you are in! Ha!

5. (Yes, I'm going to keep putting it on here until they are done) FINISH THE QUILTS! I HAVE to finish these quilts as soon as possible! I feel like they are sitting here mocking me! I will never again put the stress of quilting 6 quilts in 2 months again! Well, actually we are working on the 3rd month now, but you get the idea!

  2. haha - i too want to sit and read a book (they are piling up my list!) but behind in chores and then I get distracted and jump on here haha! A load of washing counts right? :D
    Your craft supplies look very organised though! Look at all your gorgeous material!

  3. I'm with you on the reading books thing. I have soooooo many that I have not even touched yet.
