list 1 : wishlist

December 3, 2012

Welcome to the Book of Lists! Today we’re sharing our first list, and the topic is wishlist. (How many times can I say “list”?)

My goal is to keep this book simple but still cute and fun. This was so easy to throw together and I plan to keep the format mostly the same each time, just changing up small stuff.

an organized + pretty craft room
wood floors to replace the carpet
to work part-time
quilting stuff
dining room table + chairs
Uncle David’s health

For the content of my list I debated whether to put small things, like what I asked for for Christmas, or larger & more important things. I went with the latter because I felt it was a better representation of my life as a whole right now.

I want to use my Instax mini camera more, and I thought this would be a good project for it. But dang, I have to practice with that thing. The viewfinder is way off from what the photos actually turn out like, and this is the best shot I got at some craft supplies.

I had fun with this and I hope you did too! I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. If you participated, leave a link to your post in the comments.

Next month: We’ll be posting on January 7 and the topic is “looking forward.” That could mean what you’re looking forward to, your goals for the year, or however else you interpret it.

    From Nora:

    This is such a fun monthly activity/exercise for me. I really love it so thanks for hosting/putting it together :) I’m right there with you on a craft room wishlist. I just told Knight last night as I was doing my book at the kitchen table that I would LOVE a real craft room with drawers and holders for all of my stuff.

    Excited for next month’s!
