It's May, and I think it's fair to say that I'm a bit behind on my 12 12s for the year. So what am I doing? Planning my challenge for next year. Because I really, REALLY do not have a brain in my head.
See that "12s" list on the right? See where it says "12 Christmas ornaments - 1 done?" Notice how I'm already a bit behind there? Well, next year my goal is make 365 ornaments. Yeah--because I'm managing so well on 12.
It has a lot to do with this:
I struggled with trying to do them made me too timid to try other things. If I need 365 of the things, I'm hoping I'll be a lot more willing to branch out and try a bunch of the ideas I have had that I'm too intimidated to try. That's the plan, at any rate. I'm not going to make it one ornament per day--that sort of thing never works out in my life. I haven't worked out the logistics yet--maybe I'll go through my crafting books and make a list of 52 patterns, then put them on slips of paper in a jar and draw one each week. That could be doable. Then leave the other ones up to chance? Or, more probably, desperation?
