The Meetup | May Goals

Ok, so here is May, the craziest month of all! So much happens in this month: on the family front both boys have birthdays, there are end of school year concerts, all sorts of exams, and so on! IN the day job, I teach Mayterm, which is a crazy one class crammed into one month. Oh, and I’ve got a big 2 day show Memorial Day weekend and I’ve hardly made anything for the booth since before Christmas! Yeeks!

Lets see where I’m at:

I got everything that had hard and fast deadlines done, and I kept moving ahead on Dyeing 103 and the mystery project, so I’m pretty happy with that. And I got presents dyed for my cousin’s new baby (as well as some big sister clothes as well), that was pretty urgent as well, because all baby’s need colorful clothes, right?? 😉

As always, the making things for close family (Jess & Jim), friends (Mary) and my family fell to the wayside! Sigh…

This month I’ve got to get the booth stocked and family and school stuff done with care and attention. Oh, and the RAA site re-designed for the re-branding. So once I finish up the current session on Dyeing 103 I won’t start the next session until June, trying to accomplish too much will only end in disappointment! (I also polled the students, hardly anyone is actually ready for the next session anyway, so I think this will be just fine!)
