Make It

This month I’m featuring posts as a part of #reverb10, an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next.

December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

Dinner; chicken, sweet potatoes, carrots, maple syrup.  Oh wait, perhaps that is not quite what was meant.

This weekend I painted the laundry room, but I didn’t really make anything.  I suppose the last creative thing I made was a photo book of the past year for our family.  Although it was rewarding, it wasn’t completely the caliber I wanted.  Seeing the changes over the last year was touching.  Still I had hoped to do something of higher quality this year.  I used a simple program provided by the printing service and their prepared layouts.  Better planning and more time, and hopefully next year’s will be what I envisioned, with my own layouts, my own ideas — ones that can really let my photos shine.

My list of projects is long — more rooms to paint, decorate, little projects, big ones.  I’d like to get back into knitting and refinish some more furniture.  ALL of these require clearing time … which means hiring a sitter or dumping the kids on my husband.  Not always a simple task.  Or it means giving up sleep.  Either way, priority lists come into play.  Some will get done, others will take longer.  The biggest ingredient I will need — patience.

One Response to Make It

  1. Oh for more time.

    I’ve started knitting over the past few years, but really gotten into it this fall. I love the feeling of completing a project–something in the past I’ve had problems with.
