And this is what I did this weekend.

Many times, I get to the end of the weekend and am irritated. "I didn't get a THING done!" I'll mutter, and write up yet another to-do list that unfurls across the floor in its never-ending length.

This weekend, however, things actually got done. It could very possibly have been because I stayed up until 4am each night. It could have been because I now have a laptop and can watch shows I've TiVo'd while I do busy-work. Whatever, I killed that to do list.

1. Took two batteries-worth of jewelry photos.


2. Photoshopped said jewelry photos -- or at least, enough that I felt I'd accomplished something.
3. Managed to stay off the coffee... and didn't miss it. (My neurologist would be so proud.)


4. After two years, finally finished a knitted Noni bobble bag. HUGE accomplishment.

5. Made a bunch of felted bead jewelry to take to the gallery that carries some of my jewelry. Half of the gallery is for hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn, so it's a perfect fit.


6. All those little pieces of paper on my desk with one sentence here, two things to do there? Gone. Poof. Trash canned, accomplished.

7. And the most important thing -- had time to go out to dinner with my hubby.


Good weekend. Very good.

  10. Those bracelets are gorgeous - I'm never sure about felt, though - does it tickle ?!
    My favourite is the red and silver.

  11. Well done!!
    I've felt for weeks now that I don't do enough. At the same time, I know I tend to see only what I haven't done and not what I have. This weekend I did inventory and taxes, wrote a poem, contacted new people, updated my shop, made new business cards. Gotta be something. Oh and photographed a few new books although it IS difficult here since we still have so very little daylight and when we do it's really cloudy.
