I can't keep a journal either.  I tried it for swaps, but I end up becoming obsessive about writing out what I plan on doing over and over.  I am horrible about making lists...I just have to stay away from it.  I get all weird about it.  I avoid grocery lists for the same reason.  I have less of a problem if the list is electronic.  It has something to do with my handwriting and wanting it to be perfect and neat.  I'm weird.  

New item for the list...I need to stop adding things...the whole point was to not overwhelm myself.  Heh...but I also don't want to forget the things I do want to make.

9. Wee Waka training pants for Aria

I should probably make the training pants a priority.  Out of pure laziness and a desire not to make an issue out of something she will eventually get, I haven't made any attempt at the whole potty training other than talking to her about how I use the toilet and offering to let her use the toilet as well.  4 days ago, she suddenly told me she didn't want to wear diapers anymore, she wanted underwear.  So with the exception of bedtime she is out of diapers and so far hasn't had an accident.  But the child needs some comfy underwear (she's is suddenly super sensitive to tags, fabric bunches, etc...) and the Wee Waka pants that DizzerSpinninRound posted seem like they would do the trick.

This is why I got left behind in 2010!  The pages just fill up soooooo fast!  Could that be a project on my list?  Check this board everyday?   Wink  I'm still working alot on project 1 which is my sketchbook.  I made a ton of copies today at Staples for transferring.   Grin  I'm going to experiement with acetone!  Huzzah!

I tend to check my CAL boards every other day and I read a cpl pages cause I think if I go back too far the posts almost seem irrelevant to the top posts. I want to keep up with this one more this coming year, and I think It'd be easier if I have a more browser friendly phone. Sad  Anyone else have this problem?  I seem to be simplistic with my phone, it texts, and calls and takes decent pictures so I don't have to lug around my camera, and I like it that way. But when I can't get to the computer...my phone's browser leaves something to be desired. :/ 

Luckily I don't really have to keep up with 2010's board since I finished my 50! XD

I started having this prob at the start... and glad lapoli taught me a method indirectly... bookmarking the list Smiley and keep track of which was the last page i read. I do switch between phone and laptop when i need to, but phones are not my fav to navigate around here.

If you put the page you have your list on in your signature, you can always find it by just clicking on it no matter what thread you are on...it is also a nice way to let everyone and yourself know your progress and where to find you goodies...

I put thumbnails in my list and post the big pics in the thread...at the end of the year, I print it out and keep it in a notebook... Cheesy

Once I finish writing my list, I'll add it to my siggy with my progress (such as 5/50)
until then, it's bookmarked on the computer.(not this one. I have to go dig for it now.)

Look what I found:
oeuflings
They're so adorable and could be made in so many mediums. Anyone care to try with me?
We could make it like a mini "challenge" where we all make the same thing in our different ways and post them.
All I know is that making 1 or two of those is on my list. Or a hundred.
