Goals for January are coming on Thursday; here’s how I did with my December goals.
Continue work on my Master’s project. Done! See here, here, and here for the three posters I finished in December. I’m about 30 minutes of work away from from finishing another, which will bring my total to 5. But now I need to switch gears to work on some of the written narrative that will go along with the artwork. I have to send my advisor a draft of that by January 14.
See Christmas lights with Emma. Done! We checked out the Dickinson Festival of Lights a few weeks ago, and went to Zoo Lights on Sunday.
Get my craft stuff organized in a single area. Still in progress, but will be done before I go back to work on Monday.
Get Emma’s baby book up to date. The baby book itself is updated. However, I’m still left with a pile of “artwork” that doesn’t belong or fit into the baby book. Note that I use “artwork” in the loosest sense of the word, since the majority of it is scribbles on paper. I am fully aware that, for example, THIS is not a keepsake:
However, THIS is, at least for now:
My mom suggested getting a big box and putting all this kind of stuff into it, and then going through it at the end of each school year to pick out just a few highlights to save. That sounds like a pretty good idea to me.
