Just finish it already

The count downs to Christmas have started in my Instagram feed. But I'm not thinking about Christmas. Can you believe that it's mid-November already? Do you know what that means? Holy shit, 2013 is almost over! I have so many things on my to-do list that I wanted to finish this year. It's not looking very promising. Let's take a look shall we?
  • 5 months ago, I started a quilt project for a very special little girl. It hasn't been touched in 3 months! I had hoped to finish it by the end of the month. Finishing it by the end of the year is going to be a stretch...

  • 2 months ago, I attended the Riley Blake FabricFest and learned how to make the Janey Jumper Dress by The Cottage Mama. I'm this close -->||<-- to finishing it up. All I need to do is top stitch and add a button. Miss M's bday is next week so it's on the list for this weekend.

That's just my sewing projects. My list of blogging, crafting, house decor/design, and other projects seems to be growing exponentially.

  • Finish blogging about my European adventures. I still have one more post to do about Giverny and Paris, oops. 
  • It's almost been a year since my trip to India, and I have yet to share my photos.
  • We've been married for 2+ years and we still haven't picked photos for our photo albumb. Hopefully, our photographer will still let us.
  • Fix the kitchen backsplash.
  • Sew curtains.
  • Purchase/install faux wooden blinds.
  • Set up craft/guest room.
  • Seal marble table tops (we purchased these but they come untreated).
  • Shelving for basement.
  • Organize basement.
  • Find a full length mirror for the hallway.
  • Make a trip to Ikea for picture ledges (and a whole ton of crap we don't need).
  • Decorate the house.
  • Look into custom closet solutions (aka California Closets or The Container Store's Elfa systems).
  • Refinish/paint guest room night stand.
48 days. Wish me luck.

  1. That "Do it" thing as a notepad would be awesome. And I love that you are honest with yourself about the extra, unplanned "crap" at IKEA that you'll end up buying. :)
