Becoming a Do-er

Before the holidays, I wrote a post about letting planning get in the way of Do-ing. This post is part of a link up with my friend Susan over at Homeschooling Hearts and Minds.

So here was my pre-holiday plan :

  1. Work on decluttering my bedroom.
  2. Setup a file system on my computer for digital photos.
  3. Fill out the dates for upcoming posts, review, contests, etc in my new blog planner.

I will fill you in on my progress. Goal #1 was reached with a couple of days of sorting and cleaning. I think I need to tackle it again now that the holidays are over (oh well). Here are the before and after photos.

Goal #2 is an ongoing project. I did create files in my photo folder on my computer and began sorting photos by date into the correct folders. My hubby bought me Adobe Photoshop Elements for Christmas and now I am reading a book trying to figure out how to use it. One of the first chapters in the book is on organizing photos, so I may incorporate ideas from the book into my new system.

Goal #3 was to basically set up and start using my new blog planner. Here are some photos

Right now I am just using it to list ideas and upcoming reviews. As I grow in my blogger knowledge and repertoire, I will be scheduling post topics, etc. I found this beautiful free 2013 blog planner over at Confessions of a Homeschooler whcih I downloaded and had printed and bound at my local Office Max.

Now on to my new goals. Three goals seems to be working right now, so I am going to stick with that,

  1. Take down, organize and put away my Christmas decorations
  2. Install my new Adobe Photoshop Elements program on my computer and get through the photo organization chapter in the Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 for Dummies book.
  3. Work out a new daily schedule for our home and school.

That is what I have been up to. How about you? Have you set any goals for this week?

    This week has been a week of shoving aside my plans and doing something unexpected. Unexpected snow will do that to you, lol. But over all, it has been a pretty good week. I’m glad to see that you are achieving your goals.

    I am planning on reorganizing our days and reassessing the rest of our school year on Monday. I am tackling my closet this weekend. I just read a quick read book on minimalist closet. Not sure how it is going to go,but I am going to attempt it.
