Hello!

My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.

July Goals

1.  Complete the Summer of Love Workshop. Kara from I Just Might Explode's summer workshop for art journaling and photography. I have always kept an art journal but I am excited to have new creative prompts and a little direction.  When I art journaling I mainly keep one for thoughts, ideas, and drawing practice but I am excited for doing something a different and see art journaling and snapping photos in a new light.  I need to put this on my list so that I don't have an excuse to not finish it.  It seems like lately I have been looking for excuses not to finish projects especially creative projects.
2.   Have an amazing 4th of July and show Nora her first sparkler and fireworks.  This is Nora's very first fourth of July and we are getting so closed to her very first birthday.  It makes me wonder where has the time gone. Of course she wont hold the sparkler- she's too little but it's going to be fun to see her face light when she sees the fireworks twinkle and pop.  Tim is also very excited to get fireworks- typical boy he loves lighting things on fire and watching the fireworks explode.
3.  Plan Nora's first birthday party.  I don't have anything done for it and it's going to turn into this last minute thing and I don't want that for her birthday.  I have it all planned out in my mind lol but nothing is done and haven't sent out invites.   I love planning a party but somehow I some how feel overwhelmed because I want it to be great and memorable.  You only get a first birthday once. EEk- planning starts tonight.
4.  Do a Photo a Day Challenge.  I haven't done one of these in awhile and really want to do one again.  It's one of those goals that sounds great and then you forget about it and then you wished you would have done it.
5.  Finish 2 Books.  I love to read but being a mommy and making art it's hard to squeeze in time to read but I think I can do it.  I have 2 new books out and ready to read and hopefully they are good ones.

Kara is such an inspiration. I'm trying to get myself to do a "photo a day" thing as well, but I keep putting it off. Great list! Have a happy fourth!!
