Make Something

Yesterday I made a list of all the things I want to make.  Some of them are for Inklore and others are for our home, but when I was finished with my list, it looked very familiar.  It looked familiar because I probably make a list like this at least once a week, and many of the things on that list have been there for a long time.  Do you ever make a long list like this and then accomplish none of it because it seems overwhelming?  


So I've decided to try something new.  I found an old jar, wrote that list, one thing at a time on scraps of paper, and put them in the jar.  Suddenly that list seemed much less overwhelming; it barely made a dent in the jar.  Now, on those days that I have the time to make something, instead of making a list, I can pull out one idea and actually accomplish it.  I'll be back on Monday to show you what I pulled out of the jar today...

Great idea! I'm quite the list maker myself. This would make accomplishing the tasks much more random and fun.

Brilliant idea, I'm going to try it too! I'm often overwhelmed by my list, and settle for starting something that's not on it instead.

I love this idea; might have to try this with the things I have left to do to get the studio opened; I find myself doing all things other than that, so maybe it would help. So cute, love the shoe project---very cool work,

Ooh. This is a good idea. I am always overwhelmed by my lists which then leads to procrastination. I'll have to try your way. Thanks for this great idea! :)Pam
