hexagons, scissors, and fabric (or blog plans gone awry)
A few years ago I started making a schedule for my blog posts using Google Calendar. I like it better than the paper planner I was using because I can edit and rearrange my planned posts as I work. It used to be that I would mainly change my plans as I was making them, but lately, I've been changing the plan to change the plans.
My editorial calendar now involves me moving things on to later days when I realize that there's just no way that I'm going to finish all of the work involved with a post before, you know, I need to post it. And I write this after sifting through old blog posts from a time when I was always on top of regular posting about all kinds of projects.
I don't know what all has changed for me, other than working on more things in the background (like a secret project for a magazine) and creating some more extensive tutorials (like the hexagon piece in the photo above). Rather than let myself get down about it, I choose to enjoy my hexagons...
...snip embroidery threads with these super cute scissors that came in the happy mail this week...
...and make plans to use this fabric for a special gift.
I'd love to tell you what I have planned next, but lets just play it by ear, mmmmkay?
