    Can’t wait to see how your fingerless gloves turn out. 6 days of P90X whew! You go girl!

    • Crystal says:

      I’m so excited to start them tonight! I’ve been knitting during our family Bible time at night and am amazed at how investing that little bit of time every evening is resulting in my finishing at least 1-2 small projects every week. I’m hoping I can finish the gloves in one week… I’ll post about them when I finish them!

  • Happy to be able to add my list again. I have been doing it on and off since last year. But I had computer problems and just recently we added 2 more children (Via kinship foster care) to our family. That made it harder to keep up anything. So thankfully with all this cold weather and sickness I am FINALLY able to catch up with everything including my goals, schedules, and menus since I have time to be able to organized things again. Now to get my house clean! Thanks so much for all your encouragement and inspiration to keep going Crystal. 🙂

  • Looking forward to your post on the bath salts. I think it’s awesome how you always work in DIY projects. I’m working on prayer journals with my girls this week. Good luck with the birthday prep, I love getting ready for birthdays! 🙂

  • Melissa says:

    Way to knock out your goals!

  • Kimberly says:

    You must gave gotten really fast at knitting to finish projects in a week! If you need an idea….the ruffle yarns…Starbella, Sashay, etc….knit up really quickly and make beautiful scarves!

    • Crystal says:

      Thanks so much for the recommendations. I am getting quicker at knitting — which makes me so happy! I’m also finding more little pockets of time where I can pick it up and work on it… at night during our Bible time, when we’re hanging out with friends and family, etc. I started looking for more opportunities and am finding quite a few in my normal routine. Yay!

  • Molly says:

    The lavender bath salts sound amazing. I’m looking forward to that post!!

  • I’m a bit behind but I am sharing my goals for 2014. #1 goal: live more intentionally and less reactionary. 🙂

    I can’t wait to read how the lavendar bath salts came out.

  • I am very motivated and, as I say in my blog post, feel almost giddy about having set my first weekly goals. Thank you, Crystal, for being one of my inspirations. And for permitting me to share my goals on your blog. Wishing everyone a successful week! 🙂

  • Angel says:

    I cannot wait to see a picture of your embroidery project. I have been curious about it for months from seeing it on your weekly goals 🙂

  • I’m enjoying these posts! I have a goal to post my goals monthly online 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the DIY projects that you’re going to share!

  • Mel says:

    Look at you, crossing things off! Bravo!

    Now that the holidays are behind us, I’m working on realigning my goals and my schedule to continue to create the life that I want. I’m also setting aside some time to journal about the holidays – what went well, what I’d like to do better, etc. – and set up some reminders on my calendar throughout the year so I’m better prepared.

  • April says:

    Ok my link is a tad different. I had to force myself to cool it on the big goals for 2014, which is hard for me because I love goals! This year I’m seriously aiming to breathe and enjoy my crazy life a little more. I LOVE your book, by the way.

  • Shelly says:

    I made knitted a pair of fingerless gloves and they are so nice to have. My daughter crocheted a couple of pairs recently too, one for her grandma and one for herself. She loves wearing them.
    I did a lot of planning last week so now I’m ready for a more normal week this week.

  • I can’t wait to hear how your bath salt experiment went – that’s on my list of to-do’s! I haven’t made an all-purpose cleaner, but I have made several others (window cleaner, toilet bomb, salt scrubber, etc.)
    They work amazingly well and I love that I can make the scent however I’d like.
