November Goals

Happy Thursday! Can you believe it's already November? I'm so excited for Thanksgiving! And Christmas will be here before you know it, so I can't wait to finish shopping for the holiday.

It's a new month and it's time to share my new goals for November. Before we get to my new goals, let's have a recap on my goals from October.

Recap of October Goals

  • Read 1 book: This was a fail. I have been reading, but I just didn't finish my book on time. I also need to catch up on a lot of blogs. I checked Bloglovin' and the amount of posts that I have to read is insane.
  • Make 3 greeting cards: I actually made three cards! I made a card for my boys' bus driver. I also made a Halloween and Christmas card. I also made a Halloween mini album. I made the base and put all the pages together. All I have to do is add photos, embellishments, and some journaling. I'm so glad that I accomplished this goal and it felt so good to finally create again.
  • Try 3 new recipes: This was a fail. I did try one new recipe, but I didn't make three. October was such a busy month and I stuck with my usual recipes.
  • Work in my journal: This was a pass and a fail. I did work in my journal, but I didn't write/sketch in it as much as I would have liked. I've been in a creative rut and it's been bothering me a lot. Although I did make a few things this month, I really wanted to work in my journal. However, every time I opened up my journal...I just didn't know what to write. 
  • Clean out the trunk of my car: Oh my goodness. This is a fail. Everyday I would say that I was going to clean it, but then I would push it back. 

November Goals

  • Read 1 book
  • Clean out the trunk of my car

    1. Making Christmas cards is one of my favorite things to do during this time of year.

  3. Kudos on the card. Cleaning out the trunk is the sort of list-item we write down and never do, carrying it over from list to list. I have several of those!

    1. Thank you! I really hope that I am able to finally clean out the trunk soon lol.

  4. I have all but abandoned my reading, too. I miss it! I’m reading s pretty good book by Ruth Ware, too (perfect mystery for the season!). And thank you for the reminder that the trunk of my car is a disaster!! Hope you achieve all your goals this month!

    1. Thank you Charlotte! What's the name of the book? I have heard great things about Ruth Ware.
