Ooh... what tiny acts of evil did you do? I love this one! Muahahaha!

So far I've managed to leave the work truck seat adjusted all the way up to where I sit (and I work with mostly tall people, so...), I parked said truck WAY in the back of the parking lot, and I made decaf coffee without telling anyone! Cheesy  Not toooooo evil, but that's why they're tiny acts. Cheesy

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Gratitude Doodles on: December 18, 2019 06:50:27 PM
I joined one of those health and well being programs at work, and one of the tasks was, for a week, to write down three things you were grateful for.  I took this a step further and went with "make a little drawing in my bullet journal", and a did three a day for 7 days, then one a day for the remainder of the month.  I actually really enjoyed it, and want to get back to it!





















6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Goal book.... 2019... on: December 18, 2019 06:29:09 PM
I never got around to sharing my goal book for this year, in part because I wasn't totally happy with it.  I never even painted/finished the cover, which was supposed to have a nautilus shell design on it, since my numbers this year were in the fibonacci sequence.  It was decent in idea, I thought, but in reality it was too much of a deviation from what I had been doing:

2018
2017
2016
2015
2014

My favorite page (from an art perspective!) was this one:



And then we had our usual pages of collecting things, which tend to have the best artwork...











Then I tried to do an exercise journal bit in the front, as work was doing a Garmin fitness tracker thing, but there weren't many competitions and I really preferred to use my bullet journal for that!



Other items in the book were the usual: movies, instagram posts, miles walked, blood donated, writing, reading, etc, but in the sequence which made for some... interesting units of measurement!  I had Bloits biked and Bloits walked, drops of blood donated, and pages of books read!

Next year I'll go back to the standard 50 in 50, though I do like the occasional deviation since it let me do things like "3 5Ks Walked!" and some other smaller numbers.  So maybe some day I will revisit it or something similar...

And hopefully I'll be able to share Goal Book 2020 soon someplace!  Sad Cry Kiss

I got two emails!  I wonder if the first one wasn't just terribly delayed, or you really like sending emails at 2 in the morning... ?  No judgement if that's your thing!  Wink
