Weekly Wishes, Quilts For Days Edition

I link up with The Nectar Collective 
for Weekly Wishes. This is an opportunity to share your wishes, goals, and or dreams with everyone. For me, it's a way to hold me accountable to get things done and off my to do list!

The Nectar Collective

So here goes:

1Mail off packages to family and friends!  I have about 3 packages that I just need to gather everything and send off. It's just difficult while you're waiting on other items! Don't get me wrong, I love the flat rate boxes from the USPS, but at $16 a pop, I want to cram as much stuff as I can into it! Ehhhhh..... Still haven't mailed the packages! We had another round of snow and I just refused to get out of the house! :)   SOOOO DONE with this one! That was quite a Post Office trip! Sadly, when I came back home, I found a couple of things that were supposed to go into the boxes. Ah well, I guess it's time to start more packages. 

2.Finish online photography class. I signed up for an online photography class a few months ago through Groupon. I managed to get half way finished before getting too busy with all the doctor's appointments and testing. Now, I feel there is a light at the end of the tunnel with all of that and I can wrap up all the loose ends... like this class! I definitely think that everyone needs a refresher course on how to use their camera every once in a while, and while it's on Groupon for half price, it's the perfect opportunity! Didn't finish this one either! No excuse, just didn't do it!, (It's still on here because I am horrible about remembering! The class expires the end of this month, so it WILL be done!)

3. Blog like a mad woman. This is the deal, I have creativity flowing out of my pores. From blog post ideas, to paintings, to sketches, to books (yes, I have a book idea and am so eager to finally write it) and even crafts for personal and designs to the Etsy store. My problem is that there aren't enough hours in the day nor energy in my body to carry out everything that is stuck in my head. And once an idea pops into my brain, it will not get wiped until it is complete. I write it down, I start things, I half complete them, but it makes a huge mess because of all the half finished things! So, my plan this week is to dedicate myself to finishing all of the half post drafts I have, and schedule them! I need to clear them from my brain and then *fingers crossed* I can concentrate on finishing the projects I have laying around! Yes! I love this plan! I'll keep this one on here too since I've only written half of the ideas I have. And not to mention all of the travel posts from our Europe tour LAST YEAR. Yes, I am admitting defeat here folks. 

Did you notice what was NOT on the list this week? Quilts, you say? YES! You are correct! I finished those babies and mailed them off yesterday, but not before I remembered to take pictures. Now you can see what has been haunting me for months now! 

What are some of your weekly wishes?


  1. Those quilts are beautiful! Good luck with the photography class, it should be fun!

  2. Great job with your goals. I love these quilts!
