july goals.

Like everyone else, I have a hard time believing it is July already. There is no better time than the beginning of a new month to set some new goals. I've read it's best to share your goals with other people because you'll feel more obligated to actually accomplish them. With that, here are three goals I hope to meet by the end of July:

1. Roam the flea market twice, and go to 5 tag sales.

I have mentioned previously that I recently moved from California to Connecticut. During the first month or so I had a lot of fun discovering some good flea markets and found some good tag sales. I thought I was on a roll. Then it started to rain, and hasn't stopped. I haven't been to the flea market or a tag sale for over a month because it has rained every weekend. In fact, our county is under a "Severe Thunderstorm Advisory" as I write this. It will take some cooperation from the weather to accomplish this goal, but I plan to do my best.

2. Get a bloom.

I don't have a green thumb, but I try. I planted a bunch of seeds a month or two ago and was off to a good start. They sprouted and started to grow, but have hit a rough spot. They seem to have plateaued without a bloom in sight. I am thinking I may need to thin them out a little? Any advice? If I don't get a bloom by the end of the month I think I will just blame the sun, or lack thereof. If I do get a bloom, I will take all of the credit.

3. Put Together Mini Album of Past Year

This past year has been full of many changes for me, and along the way I've saved lots of pictures, tickets, receipts, and other mementos. I think it's time to finally gather them all together in a mini scrapbook of some kind, perhaps in a design similar to the mixed paper journals so I can constantly add to it.

I promise to keep you updated of any and all progress along the way.


  1. Please meet your flea market/tag sale goal,
    I need to see more great stuff!
    You can do all these things!!
    I also agree that sharing them motivates.

  2. I want to steal YOUR goals! :D That all seems like so much fun. I can't wait to see how it all comes along.
