For a Quarterly Review
.....of my Hopes!

Remember this post? (Hopes Not Goals)

I thought I would do a review on how I am doing.  I figure it would either ramp up my anxiety or ease my obsessive mind.

We shall see.


  • Internet hopes:  My URL has been purchased.  My logo is in the final stages.  The website will have to wait awhile.  In the meantime, I will use this blog and my FB page to cultivate orders.  I have organized my blog recently, adding pages.
  • Grief hopes: Things have been picking up on our online support group.  What was once only about 25 of us in Dec 2009, is now, sadly, bursting at the seams at over 200 women.  I have been trying to continue writing grief or recovering grief posts.  And I am really excited about Butterfly Kisses, my very own charity.  It warms my heart!
  • Sewing: I am pretty happy with the things I have made for the baby.  I am also happy with some of my custom orders.  I still have a long list to do.  Our first few weeks being parents again has set me back apace.
  • Baby Button:  Wow.  What a rollercoaster the last 6 weeks have been.  Yes, six weeks!  I am completely in love with this guy!  He gave us a legitimate worry when he was born, but I think I have relaxed.  I am so THANKFUL he is healthy and here.
  • Embroidery:  I have been SO excited with my progress with using both my embroidery machine and my embroidery software.  I plan to learn more!
  • Quilting: The only thing I have done is a throw pillow.  Bleh!
  • Crafting:  Nothing much going on here.  I am sure some will pop up when I decorate the nursery and Little Big Man's room!
  • Scrapbooking:  Went on a retreat in January.  I finished my 2010 and 2009 (ok..confession..have a few more pages in that one to do!). I have a new album for 2011 to start on my scrapbook retreat THIS WEEKEND!!).  Won't promise myself much, but need to get some serious scrappin done.  My hopes list was loooong for this year!)
  • Family:  I think I put them first when I decided not to return to work after maternity leave.  I am officially a stay at home mom again.   They need me to keep the home front warm for them again.  I miss working, but I know home is where my heart is.

So in review........I don't think I am doing too shabby.

  But I really need to get it in gear!
