Goal setting

I seem to be spending too much time blagging on the interwebs and no time designing and creating.

Does this sound like a familiar problem?

You think "I'll just go and twitter a little" then before you know it you've entered several giveaways, followed a few more blogs, cruised a few new sites and Oooops! goodness me where has the day gone??

So, yesterday I set myself the goal of making 10 lampwork beads (I'm just a novice),
and then making 10 bracelets.

The bracelet making is quite time consuming as I have been making irregular, funky ones and there is a great deal of rummaging through bead boxes to be done.
Once I have a pleasing array, the stringing is the easy part.

How did I go?

Well, I made 15 glass beads, just basic baby, beginner beads.

These are the ones I have made this week.

Some are still stuck on the mandrells - Oh, well, that probably happens to everyone!

I made 7 bracelets late last night and had to give in and go to bed, but I made the remaining 3 this morning.

How do I feel?


I feel like I finally acheived something.

Yes, guilty here too. So much so that friends send me funny emails about wasting time on the web.

I've made the conscious decision and limited my web perusing to 20 minutes, twice a day. Wow, I get soooo much more creative work done :)

Ahhh, the blogging Vs creating Vs life dilemma!

Setting a goal sounds like a great idea to get stuff done, then blog... Especially if it leaves you feeling great!
