Once upon a time...
... I vowed never to eat or let my kids eat McDonald's again (after watching this video) yet in the past 6 weeks I've averaged between 1 - 2 runs through the McD's drive-through window per week! It just seemed like the easiest/fastest/best idea at the time, and yep, I regretted it every time, but the kids were happy and fed!
... I swore off sugars and caffeine and yet I think I've consumed my weight in peppermint bark and Mocha Frapuccinos just in the past couple of weeks. (bark recipe coming soon, along with some fun handmade ideas)
... I took the Handmade Pledge and then spent nearly my life's savings on Wii and DS games (and a few other electronics). I don't suppose they would've enjoyed a hand-made version of these items. ;)
... I promised my family that I would "take a break" after Quilt Market and yet in the past couple of months I've worked harder than I ever had. Projects include, but are not limited to: completing and submitting my next fabric collection, drafting 3 patterns for my new Boutique Sewing Patterns collection (due out in Spring '09), drafting 3 pillow patterns for an upcoming issue of Quilts And More magazine, doing some photography and an interview for an upcoming issue of Sew News magazine, and sewing a ton of Christmas gifts for family & friends. Hmmm... maybe after Christmas I can take a break?
