This week I'm all about wrapping up loose ends, continuing new connections and planning new projects. Plus we celebrate the second biggest Christian Holiday this month(the first being Easter) and there is a lot of stuff that goes on with all of that.
Are you a goal setter? Do you make lists and check each item off one by one?
My Goal is to manage less stuff and try more quality contemplation time regarding the Birth of my Savior, but I have already had two invitations to celebratory family events, a deadline for a creative Canvas Corp Brands Project, and a commission to finish.
I am totally going to need to get more serious about goal setting and time management.
Way more serious.
This last month I've been doing things on the live Broadcasting App called Periscope too. My Call sign, (or handle) is @ Dapoppins. There are replays of a few of my broadcasts here. I may or may not have deleted some of them because I stuck my foot in my mouth or was beyond ridiculous. Hopefully those episodes are gone forever and will never be seen again by anyone or held over my head at my next job interview.
On Periscope I share about stuff I do and just general happy chit-chat. I do a daily short scopes, the occasional longer scope, and lots of group scopes such as Pass the Art Journal and Pass the Faith Art.
If your not sure about what Dapoppins might know about- I'm a Career Nanny with over 20 years experience with kids and four kids of my own. I am also an adult caregiver. And I do artsy fartsy crafts by the seat of my pants kind of stuff. So if you watch one of my scopes expect a little creativity and inspiration from a career Mary Poppins.
Periscope is a new thing to me. So I am enjoying it. Until it becomes an old thing and then who knows?
Are you on Periscope? I would so love to connect if you are. Leave me a comment with your handle so I can find you.
I've also been involved in the facebook group Gratitude Girls Cheer League. My bestie, Nancy Gaines at Domesticraft and I started this group to have a place to gather while encouraged and challenged each other and it has grown to over a hundred people. We don't intend for it to be just seasonal, either. We got plans, fun plans, big plans, super colossal creative plans. We plan to offer giveaways the rest of the year for good stuff and all you have to do is comment and be present. The group is free. The Cheer Leading and encouragement are free. And you can eat all the Virtual cupcakes you want and not gain an ounce too! You gotta be a girl to join, but other than that you can come from any faith, no faith, or any back ground anywhere. You are welcome in our group and we promise to encourage you on your life journey.
I've also been puttering, and hope to continue to putter around my little home studio. AKA the 3ft by 7ft space where I have my crafts at the end of my bed. Here are a few things I've shared on Periscope and Instagram.
I also completed a Christmas Gift for my Mom.
Feel free to head on over to the Canvas Corp Brands blog to see more photos and leave a comment to let them know if you liked it or were inspired by what I created.
What have you been working on in November? What goals have you reached? What are your plans for December?
Do you have any special time management tricks that might make my day just a wee-bit longer? Feel free to get chatty in the comments and let me know. I always love reading them.
Thank You and Be Blessed!
