Weekly Wishes, The one with the crazy

Monday again! Time for my 2 week, Weekly Wishes! 

I'm so happy Melyssa from The Nectar Collective came up with this link up! It's a great way to list your to-do list online, and hold yourself accountable!

The Nectar Collective

1. Blog like crazy! I will admit, I've been pushing this blog further and further down the list of priorities, and that's not fair to you readers! So, I've thought about how to do this, and if I can devote a couple of good, no distraction hours to blogging, I think I can get a week's worth of posts ready to go. We will see how this goes this week, and hopefully I can go back to posting 5 days a week. I know that I must finish the Europe tour because that is so fun to post about! I can't wait to get back across the pond!

2. Sew like crazy! I have about 25 yards of this Blackhawk fabric, and plan to do ear warmers with fleece! Such a nice gift and I know they will sell out fast. The problem is, I have to hand make each and every one of them! And, I want to do it where I have enough stock to last throughout the Holiday/Christmas rush. It would make the perfect gift for a Blackhawk fan! Keep checking on my Etsy Store (here) for them to be listed!

3. Learn to juggle a new schedule. I love plans, lists, schedules, and when anything gets messed up, I completely freak out... OK, maybe not completely freak out, but it's bothersome. Now that I have to recognize what tires me out, what stresses me out, how I feel, it makes me focus on the pain and I now have to juggle things around because I don't know how I will feel in the mornings vs. the afternoons. It's so hard dealing with this Fibro. that I just want to scream and cry most days. So, learning to juggle a schedule and my to-do list based on how I feel is pretty crappy, I don't like it, but if I want to be able to get anything accomplished, it's a necessary evil.

4. Do & post new crafts!  It's been a while since I shared any crafts with you guys, and I miss doing crafts for fun and sharing them! It's time to do more for you! Plus, crafts are a huge stress relief for me, so it's perfect! Be on the look out for that!

5.  Find time for reading. Blogging and my bible study have been pushed down this list. I know, I know.... that can't happen! So, I will work on the new schedule, and if I have to literally write down "Reading from 6pm-7pm" then I will do just that! I also want to focus on my photography more, but that can wait, my bible study and fun reading is more important! 

There! 5 weekly wishes that I will work on over the next 2 weeks. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get all 5 done? Comment below!


  1. "that's not fair to you readers" <-- What?! Girl, it is not about us! It is about YOU! Take care of you first, we will be here no matter what! xo

  2. Visiting from the link-up! I really love that last photo (except for Wuthering Heights, not gonna lie) -- it's making me a little jealous! Good luck with all your goals -- sounds like you've got a lot but you have a great attitude and some super motivation -- get it girl!

  3. That's amazing that you can sew like that; that's certainly something I'd love to learn sometime! I, myself, have found my bible study and personal reading falling wayyyy down on the list of priorities. I think that's a great idea to set a certain time aside for reading. I may pick that idea up for myself! :)

    Best Wishes with everything!! :)

  4. I completely understand, and I agree with Aimee's comment above! Take care of yourself. We love reading your blog, but I understand how crazy life is, especially lately. :)

  5. Please take care of yourself. Remember that goals and wishes are wonderful to have but that you are not a failure if you don't meet them. Something that helps me is actually listing what I have done so that along the way I have accomplished something.

  6. I wish I had more time to read too! I am jealous of your sewing skills. I am not good at anything that requires attention to detail =) Take care and have a great week!
