June’s 3 New Things

June3NewThings

Happy June! I had a great weekend catching up on some personal projects + being somewhat lazy. This month is one that I’ve been looking forward to for awhile. It’s also a lighter month when it comes to work which allows us to dive into some experimental projects + focus on a few other things that usually get pushed back due to client work. We’re also going to Brooklyn for 6 days and I am so excited. When it comes to trying 3 new things, I decided to:

  1. Draw in a sketchbook daily. Whether it’s before bed, to take a break from the computer or while we’re traveling – I am to make it a daily habit. Last month I made a point to use my Wacom Intuos tablet often and now I remember why they say, “Practice makes perfect.”
  2. Organize all my makeup. I’ve never been to The Container Store before and I think it’s time I ended that streak.
  3. Track my time! I actually have no idea how many hours I work each week. I know that some weeks are insanely crazier than others but I started tracking my time before I started drafting this post and I’m up to 10 minutes already (creating the graphics, writing everything up). I use Toggl to track my time.

Do you have any fun plans this month? Are you going to try anything new? I didn’t include this in my list but I plan to celebrate summer on June 22nd and hold my own Summer Retreat for myself. I got the idea from the book The Way of the Happy Woman. It focuses on disconnecting from technology, walking, relaxing and ending the day with a big cookout. I can’t wait!

*Also, did you see my updated sidebar?

  • I have decided to have a weekly meeting this summer with the kiddos– assign them chores for the week, review the schedule and discuss the family schedule for the week. Instead of it being always me running the schedule and trying to remember everything. Hopefully we will build a habit this summer, that will carry over into the school year!

  • I’m loving the new sidebar, and specifically, your new portrait! As for fun plans, Andy and I are heading to Detroit this weekend for a Tigers game with my fam and friend from Taylor. Can’t wait!

  • One of these days I may try tracking my time for a week or month just to see what it is. I’m almost scared to know, haha.. I definitely work too much.
