Holy heck-balls, February is a SHORT month. I can’t believe this month is at an end, I feel like it should just now be the middle of the month. Any-woo…Remember my “Year of Resolutions“? I am liking this way better than trying to stick to a resolution for a whole year. It’s just 30 days. I can make a commitment of 30 days to most things (or 28 days this month).
My February resolution was to complete 4 different photo projects I have been procrastinating on. I needed a deadline to hold myself accountable, and here is how it panned out:
Project 1: Create HJ’s 4 year canvas and order if I can find a deal
-You all helped me pick the canvas. From your votes on facebook and the blog, picture 2 won!
I happened to check out Groupon, and guess what? They had a deal for Canvas On Demand. I ordered a 16×20 (the same size as his other ones) for $29.99 (regularly $129.99). Awesome. Just waiting to receive it in the mail.
Project 2: Complete a photo book of HJ’s artwork
-I have been taking pictures of HJ’s artwork and then throwing it out. That way I don’t have piles and boxes of his artwork. My ultimate goal is to make books of his artwork. That way we can always look at what he made, I just don’t have to store it. I DID complete the book. His masterpieces from 2010-2013 are all displayed in the book. Luckily, my sister came across a snapfish coupon for 60% off, which I ordered this book as well as my other projects with.
Project 3: Complete a yearbook of 2013
-I have mountains of photo albums. About 3-4 for each year. They are bulky. I decided after HJ turned 3 that we would start making yearly photo books instead of having all these albums. I put in pictures from all of 2o13 and made a 70 page photo book. One book. Everything in one place, in chronological order, for the whole year.
This year, I vow to work on the book throughout the year. It is a task and a half. The book is ordered, just waiting for delivery!
Project 4: Disney Photo Album
-My parents bought me a Disney album after our trip. I have been meaning to print off the pictures and put them in the book. I had great intentions of this in November, and even ordered the pictures. Once I got them, I realized how big the book is and how few pictures I actually ordered. All I needed to do was order the rest of the pictures, but somehow I put it off for 3 months. BUT! The pictures are now ordered.
Woohoo! February’s resolution has been completed (mostly…all ordered I should say). I am still working on being healthy and active from January, so I did not just blow that off completely. Like I mentioned, I will be trying to rotate through easy and hard resolutions so I can keep focusing on the ones I hope to continue throughout the year.
Can’t wait to show progress on weight loss and to tell you about March’s resolution!
