Back to the Routine

Well, tomorrow the kids go back to school and I will go back to my routine with a few changes. 
There are several things that I know I need to do but just can't seem to get to doing them.  This is the time I AM going to change that. I have started a One Year Success Plan so help me get my goals actually down on paper along with motivation and lots of other things.  First thing on my list is being at a good weight and being healthy.  I worked out this morning and got something out of the freezer for dinner tonight. (Cooking dinner is one of those things that I struggle with! It is really not the cooking itself, it is the figuring out what to cook.  My family's usual suggestion is "Whatever you want to fix".  Ugh.) Anyway, that is another topic.  So cooking more at home is second goal.  That is enough for this week I think of those kind of goals.  Next, are my business goals.  Those are going to take a bit of thinking to actually put those down on paper.  So that is going to be my focus today. 

I did start on one of my purse ideas last night.  I think it is going to turn out pretty nice.  I ran out of the pretty thread I was using, so I couldn't finish the "material" but  this will give you an idea of what I am thinking.  I got a great deal on some beautiful ribbon and wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it but I knew I would figure out something. 

So, I am weaving them together and sewing a random pattern on the plain color square.  I wanted to give it some stability and wasn't sure that fusible webbing would be good with all the metallic thread in the ribbon.  I have some buckram that I will make the purse form out and line it with a pretty gold fabric that just happens to be a dinner napkin!  Well, for now that is my plan but things could change and probably will! 

I also have a knitted purse in the process of being completed along with an idea using old Itunes cards.  I will post those when they are completed.  In the winter time I am much more inclined to do purses and such then in the warm months.  Funny, wonder why that is?  As you can see, I do need some focus or my creativity will take over, lots of things get started but nothing gets completed!  I have so many ideas running through my head that it gets a little crazy sometimes!  That is another reason for the goal & success plan!  Okay, so off I go!  So, I have my coffee, off I go to get goal setting and creating!  Here's to harnessing creativity into something productive!
