Goals and To-Do Lists



Finally....took my papers to the next level.  I added some text to create some "to-do" lists..family and art related.  I also created a "weekly" art goal sheet.  I decided to have some fun with this sheet.  I created a revised one for some dear friends in Minnesota.   To bridge the distance we do art swaps...we have done two charm swaps and the last swap was a "stuffie swap."  For whatever reason...this swap has been the hardest for some of the ladies in Minnesota to finish.  So..... as a joke I sent them the "revised" weekly goal sheet.....as a "monthly" goal sheet since they are feeling very overwhelmed.....you know how life can do that to you.  I added "meet for swap" as a goal for the month.  I also have a very goofy picture of our group at the bottom of the goal sheet.  I have been fiddling with this "photo-shopped" photo of us.  I like to think that I look that funky (and slender)...every time I see the photo I burst out laughing, so i figured placing it on the Goal sheet was fun.  Something light hearted to remind me to have fun with life....but keep reaching for the stars!

Since having "goals" on my mind I feel like I am getting more done.  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!  That is definitely a step in the right direction!  Hopefully I will be posting a few projects that are on my weekly goal list for this week....  a mosaic cupcake and a "frame" for my jewelry.

these are great! i love how you used the collage pages as the background for your to-do lists, etc. how fun! i can't wait to get started on my own pages, thanks for the inspiration!

Thank You...to both of you. I was not successful at "drawing" my to-do lists on paper, scanning them in and then incorporating them into my painted papers...I had to add the text in elements. i know that I can figure this out another way.....blending. more practice. more goals. more learning.

How fun to add the photos to the pages. I had never thought of that! Those background papers are addicting!
Blessings, Kim

I love your pages! And your lists are great. I especially like having the Weekly Art Goals list! I might have to borrow that, if you don't mind :)

Kristi said...

Holly, borrow away. I have found that setting the goals has been rather helpful to me since starting. I am not sure why it took me so long to figure this out...but it did. So I am sticking with the plan!
