Hello February!Saturday, February 01, 2014
I've kind of started having 'goals' in the back of my mind this past month that have stemmed from my resolutions including:
- Illustrating more things to start selling.
Ok, so well this hasn't gone completely to plan. I have had ideas and I have drawn some of them. But that's really as far as I've gone with them. But I will do a bit more and be a bit better with this, this month.
- Read more.
This was definitely done this past month! I finally finished the book I've been reading the past year or so and also completed another book by the same author and started a new one.
- Blog more.
I feel I've done well with this as I've written more personal posts this month than I have done before.
- Be more craftty.
I haven't done as much as I wanted to this month but I have started making a dent. I bought some new watercolours and paint brushes and started doodling/messing around with them. I also uploaded my first kind of D.I.Y/Crafty post to this blog!
I think I'm going to start making monthly mini goals to try and get myself organised better!
- Get into my sleeping routine more.
The past few weeks since I've been of from college I have been going to bed late and waking up about 12. I need to start getting into a better routine as I'm seriously going to be exhausted 24/7!
- Save money.
I really need to start saving more! I have to make the final payment for my college trip to London in April so I need to make sure I have enough for that plus spending money. I also need to have some spending money since I'm getting to go to the Harry Potter Studios!! aaaaah!!! I also really want to save up and buy myself an iPod as my iPod at the moment is becoming a bit old and breaking. So it might be worth replacing it soonish.
- Do more for OhHay!
I'm meaning this for both my blog and my shop. I've been wanting to properly redesign this blog so that it has a more consistent 'brand' feel and so it has a bit more of a design. I really want to have a blog design like Being Little and A Little Birdy Blog. As I've said, I also want to add stuff to my shop. I originally really wanted to create some stuff for Valentiens Day but I think I need to focus on just designing basic all-year round things first then focus on the holidays.
- Do more to my room.
My room really needs a freshing up so I've slightly started that today! I bought a new lampshade today and some fairy lights so that's a start! I really want to repaint and rearrange my room, however that might be something that needs to wait till the Summer Holidays though. In the mean time I might just add a few more features like new lamps and possibly a desk.
That's my main goals that I'm going to try and focus on this month! Since this is the shortest month I can only hope I manage to do it all!
I'll recap at March how I've done with my goals for this month and write up next months ones as well!
