Well one thing I did, to get ready for Spring, was to change the background theme on my blog to “Greenery”. It is very green indeed. It is a little too green for my taste, but I’ll leave it for a while. Small changes can sometime boost creativity. Maybe my blogs will read better with this new theme background.
I’m thinking of other things I can do to prepare for this seasonal change. Spring Cleaning of the apartment won’t work for me, unless I can get someone else to do it. But, I can create a more positive environment by “throwing out” some negative thoughts. “Create in me a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within me. ” Psalms 51:10 (NIV). I’m going to try to have a brighter, more positive outlook on daily activities.
I finished making another slouch beanie. I don’t like the style of this one so much. I’ll ask a few friends what they think about the beanie. It may be just fine for someone else. I also crocheted a couple more headbands. Tonight, I plan to finally finish P’s scarf.
Besides getting more items posted in my Etsy shop, I have a few more things I hope to accomplish before summer starts. 1) I hope to get outside at least twice a month. 2)I want to post pictures on this blog site. 3) I want to practice knitting in the round on circular needles and double-pointed needles. 4) I want to have a craft night in my home. I want to invite at least five guests. I won’t limit it to crocheters or knitters . The participants must bring their own projects. 5) I want to give out more copies my newsletter. 6) I want to crochet a project and donate it to a charity. I really would like to donate an item to charity quarterly.
I’ll stop writing now. This list is getting a little too long for me to accomplish in three months. The only other thing to think about is what I want to do for my birthday in May. I know it might seem strange to plan my own birthday celebration. But, I don’t always like surprises. Also due to my illness, I think my friends prefer for me to tell them what would be the most comfortable option for me.
I really look forward to this Spring season.
