Other Stuff Everyday Month


Well art every day is not happening. I really applaud those of you doing the art or the writing or the journaling everyday. It's completely awesome. And every successful creative person will tell you that it comes from some daily creative action. I wish I had it in me lately. I tend to be a little less aspirational on an everyday basis. I'm more of a "brush your teeth every day" gal. Or a "reorganize the bookshelf by category everyday" type. Maybe I'll make a badge and everyone can participate in my non-clinical  OCD. How about "check craigslist everyday for toy storage bins"? Because that's my latest obsession. And thankfully I indeed found what I was looking for. So, along with a "new to me"  bunk bed and three large bins for toys and goodies, it looks like we might be able to stretch this house for a while longer. And it might even be the case that my kids can actually put away their own toys since they now can see where the toys go AND access that spot without climbing the shelves of their closet and risking their lives everyday month. AND, even better, they can see what toys they have and actually play with them. AND since all of this coincides with my sinus infection, their newly imposed independence suits me fine. So instead of art, I'll be squirting warm salt water up my nose everyday month. There must be a badge for that.

Here are more of my own personal badges. You can use any you like. Or tell me your own everyday badge in the comments. Let's start a revolution!

Oh, Susie, I am laughing out loud. So funny.

I'd happily take a "Shut The Front Door (!) Every Day Month"

Oh my gosh, this is THE BEST. I, for the life of me, cannot get this art every day thing straightened out, no matter how hard I try. I DO draw and take pictures, but I'll be darned if I can scan, or edit, or even post on my blog. Or read blogs, like yours, one of my favorites! I am so behind!

Anyhow, here is my badge for November (and October, for that matter)...

"Take a nap while the kids watch Cat in the Hat every afternoon month!"

I've been doing a GREAT job on this one. A+ for Becky! Hooray!
