52 Lists - Week Thirteen // List The Things You Want to Make

Source - MOOREASEAL's 52 List Project - Week 13

Hmm...This week's question is exactly what I need to figure out. My boyfriend has always said that he is "Good at everything, but not great at anything." I've always found that logic interesting & profound. I'm definitely not good at everything, but I do know what I am good at & what if I put my mind to it I'm great at...but how to go far & behind with it? Well, that's a question keeps me up at night...literally.

I've showcased here my abilities to decorate cupcakes, taken pride in my handwriting skills, shared snippets of a future novel I will finish before I'm 30, and have hinted at other talents that are just scratching the surface of my imagination. From here I dream to develop something that I can sink my teeth into and be proud to hand my business card to that curious onlooker. But again, what?

I'm hoping to find that answer one day soon...

For now, I think of myself as a talented person & someone who is ready to make those next mental steps that comes with being a woman almost in her late 20's. I'm thinking of taking the Michael Jordan approach & try EVERYTHING. Once upon a "Is he really playing golf?" times, Michael Jordan tried to be more than just a basketball player & dabbled in many different things. Anyone seen Space Jam? =) Well, for the literal "making" part of my list, I wish to make some new and different things. For the mental part...promises & dedication need to be my co-pilots.

Okay, let's get started:

Here is my List:
(Bits of Things I've like to Make both Mental & Physical) 

- I want to continue to make a lil life for Craig & me.
- I want to make more cupcakes & try making those High Heel cupcakes - Source #2 above.
- I enjoyed making the decorations for my friend's shower...Maybe I'll volunteer to make the decorations for my cousin's wife's baby shower!
- I want to learn how to make origami
- I want to learn how to make felt fortune cookies - Source #3 above.
- I want to make my budget & spending toned enough that I don't cringe when I receive my bills in the mail.
- I want to continue to try out new recipes like Pink Lemonade Jello Shots - Source #1 above. =P
- I received my ravioli maker in the mail the other day...I want to make my own pasta & try out the maker! - Source #2 below.
- I want to learn how to make throw pillows. My mother has 8 sewing machines, I'm sure she could lend me one or two?!?
- I visited a friend of the family today and she is creating beautiful artful jewelry. I would love to make some Steampunk jewelry.
- I want to make my vampire short story into a novel.
- I want to make life easier on myself by planning, not procrastinating, & following through with my intentions.
- I want to make cupcake toppers!

- I want to make a lil business for myself.

I want to make a new recipe for Craig & I this week!
