Back in January, completely unrelated to this class or any other project, instead of resolutions, I made 12 lists - January through December, so I could keep running to-do lists for myself and what I wanted to accomplish each month. I included tasks as simple as reminding myself to backup my laptop, to other more involved projects like my monthly One Little Word assignment, creating a weekly dinner planner, purging iPhoto, making Parker's art canvas for his room and finishing my December Daily album. Some of them, unknowingly, were 'focus' related - organizing and simplifying our home, creating 'me' time, spending quality time with my family - so looking back on the year so far, and looking ahead to what else I wanted to accomplish, was quite easy.

April's letter to myself, was for a simple piece of patterned paper + embellishment (or a photo, I suppose). I had an old old old Harley-Davidson magazine ad I tore out years ago (and kept, and remembered where it was at...go figure) that was basically a list of things you should do (and not do). Perfect little piece of ephemera for this month.
Fellow OLW classmates, my photos are in the Big Picture Classes gallery. How are you doing with the May prompt? I'm giddy to see what Ali has up her sleeve for June. Can't believe we're going to be halfway through the year soon...
