Week Six

Posted: February 13, 2013 in general

Sorry this post is so late. I though I had posted this weekend, but I never uploaded it. My bad.


So the project for this week is a goal board for the office. I wanted a visual reminder of the things I want to accomplish. Specifically to break down large long term goals into smaller tasks. It was also important for me to be able to track the goals I have accomplished. Crossing things off the to-do list has always been a good feeling and I love looking at the list grow smaller.

Everything I used was laying around the house already so the cost for this was $0. I covered a piece of foam board with wrapping paper. Then I put a piece of card stock on the top for a title area. I had a few pieces of leftover jewelry wire that I cut into smaller pieces. Using my jewelry pliers I curled the end, then inserted them into the foam board. I put one straight line of pins at the bottom of the board and sectioned it off with a ribbon for the finished tasks.

I had picked up a small pail from the dollar bin at Target to hold crafting supplies.  I hung it next to the board for a pen and the card stock tags I cut out. Now when either I or my hubby get a new goal we simply write it on a tag and put it on the board. I can’t wait to finish one and move it down to the finished area.

I am so happy with this week’s project.  It is a blanket for the new baby. This is also probably the largest crochet project I’ve finished yet. I was amazed at how quickly it worked up too.  I was able to finish this after work or weekends in just under 2 weeks. We are keeping everything earth tones for now. So here is my granny square baby blanket.
