a little break and a freebie

i have this problem, every time i get on the computer to get something accomplished i somehow start to look at blogs.  weird, huh?  i have some other stuff i would like to be working on right now like a talk and some craft stuff for this thing i and some friends will be doing at the end of the month.  so i am taking a break in hopes that i waste my time more wisely. 
i will not blog (write new posts or look at others blogs) until i have finished the following that i keep procrastinating:
  1. my talk for sunday
  2. finish at least 2 of the 4 mermaid quilts
  3. sew another mermaid backpack
  4. 20 bobbys
  5. embroider some tea towels
  6. make a baby shower gift
that should be at least a week or so. until then, leave a comment and i will randomly choose some one to win one of these:black is the new black.
see you soon!

Haha this post makes me laugh because I do the same thing! I set limits for myself and reward myself with Blogging/computer time.

It hardly ever works, I always give in...

GOOD Luck with your projects!!

PS. I love your bobbies!

And happy belated Birthday! ( I am the same way when it comes to my birthday)

Shanae said...

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY FROM ME TOO!! Why didn't we celebrate? Come over I will make you a cake :) Oh and I want a bobby. I need to buy some from you anyway, they are way cute!!

SERIOUSLY, I totally get sucked into blogs and Facebook has become a recent obsession. Because of these, my "To Do List" isn't getting any shorter...shock huh! I'm goona have to discipline myself too...maybe...

liko said...

i seem to have the same problem. good idea with the blog-break. and what are tea towels used for?? curious...good luck with your talk!

liko said...

oh, and can i buy a bobby in every color, please? except black, because of my dark hair. next time i see you, we can make the transaction, whenever you are done. okay?? i'll text you my order.

with love, r said...

Did I mention how much I love your blog? It just makes me so happy to stop in and read about your joy. So refreshing and light and sweet.
The bobbies are adorable and if I win, I would have a hard time deciding whether to keep them for myself or give them to my niece...I think me- she'd never know.
Happy B-Day!

Melissa said...

haha!!
black is the new black. your sooo right!

La said...

who doesn't have a list the size of their arm of things that get ignored in the name of blogdom?? i mean, right?

echo said...

when you came over the other day with a bobby in your hair i thought to myself that i needed to get a few from you. so i will enter here and if i don't win then i will buy one or two from ya.
oh and you are a stinker for not telling us it was your birthday the other night. i would have made you something.

I want one. and I always set out to get some work done on the computer and instead of read other people's blogs... I feel yah sista!

McLove said...

Those bobbys you make are adorable:) Good idea on the no blogging until your tasks are done I should take your advice:)

In.A.Nutshell said...

i too want a bobby, and a black bobby even, but i would like to purchase many a said bobby from you. i noticed one in your hair at the beach last week and thought, "yah, i want one."

Melinda said...

I love those little clips you make. The girls costumes were so cute too! Only they could wear those in Hawaii where it stays nice and warm at night. Jon wishes he was there right now. He's on surfline.com every day watching updates about pipeline swells, and what not. His friend was just there so they texted everyday discussing how awesome the surf is right now. I think we'll be coming out there again in the next year or two. It looks like it's a vacation spot Jon will not neglect to visit again. Hope you're doing well!!!!

Guess who else gets to give a talk on Sunday? Yep, you're right! Me! Hooray...riiiiight....you know how much I LOVE being in front of people! Let me know how yours goes!

Katie said...

Oh my gosh, I do the same thing! The computer always makes me less productive. I have so many things I need to be working on-I'm doing a boutique with my stuff at the beginning of December to get ready for the holidays. I need to bust out my sewing machine but don't have the motivation, LOL!

The Trotter Family said...

I seem to put off my commenting for once a week now. That dang google reader makes it easy to do! OK, first, I love There is Sunshine in my Soul Today. I don't think you can sing it without smiling. Second, happy b-day to you! I have a ton of friends and family that have their birthdays right now. I guess I just like Scorpios! Third, good luck getting all those projects done. I heard from a business expert that you should do the hardest task first and work from there!

The Peterson Family said...

I'm right up there with the procrastinating. When I have a paper due for school I blog pretty much everyday, just to keep from having to work on it! I can't wait to enjoy your talk:)

Denae said...

Wow! Why am I ALWAYS the last to see these things!!? Good luck on your week of catching up.

snlbarney said...

Can't wait for you to join us in the IE and make crafts with me! Come save me from the "armpit":)

Mahina said...

wow! you are WAY more productive than i've ever been! that list would take me a good month to complete! you put me to shame! maybe i should dig out my sewing machine, that is if i can find it in the boxes that are piled up in our garage! i guess i should wait until we organize the garage first!

liko said...

i see you are getting things done, crossing them off as you go! how'd your talk go? i haven't spoken in sacrament in YEARS.

Missy said...
