fEAsible, intentions, my goals

fEAsible…plans for November

I have a few goals for November, which I prefer to call my intentions, if and when I have the time.  Not everything on my list will get done, some will undoubtedly spill over into December but having a list helps to focus my thoughts.  There are tasks I must do and ideas for things I would like to do so I am planning on a good mix of both.  I am looking forward to the fun things.

November

Finish decorating the guest bedroom and furnish within budget

Design and make a Christmas card – using up some of the blank cards and envelopes
