What's on your NOT to do list?

What are your business plans for this year.? Do you have a to do list, a not to do list ? A stop doing list? I have this super long list of things I need to stop doing. But to stop doing something requires intention and focus. In order to stop drinking carbonated beverages, I had to get disgusted at the amount of carbonated beverages at my family's Thanks Giving Dinner. Well I stopped drinking the stuff with the fizz on black Friday of last year. No more carbonated beverages for me and that means a lot more tea. It's not a New Years Resolution for me, since I quit in November. What's are your NOT to do list? Let me know in the comments.

Blog redesign is almost done!


  1. I think you and I are on the same path, push our creative passions. I have always put my goals behind and as an after thought...everything else came first. That's a mom for you. Now I feel like I am stepping into MY life. So, what not to do...not feel bad that I spent time on my art and let other things side for a bit. Only so many hours in a day! I need a few hours for my soul to soar! I have been looking at each day as if it's my last or from the point of there will never be another Jan 2, 2011 so make the best of every minute of that day, you can't get it back. I have to say it makes you want to jump out of bed every morning and have some fun.

  2. Dear Sonya-My "stop doing" list would be long..but at the top of it would be this...stop doubting mySELF...stop playing small. And YES!!! 2011 just snuck up on me!-Soraya

You just gotta love this creative go getter Laura ... I'm Thankful to Laura for sharing her inspiring story here on Sunday Spaces ...  The story of my studio is tied in to my cancer. Good things and not so good things somethings come together. In 2003 I was finally diagnosed with  thyroid cancer . I say finally because I was sick for 10 months, constant choking and coughing all night long before I found my cancer. ~ okay, side-bar for a quick cancer story....  I was sick, and first we thought it was a virus, then maybe  bronchitis , then maybe an allergy, I coughed and coughed, I couldn't sleep. I coughed so hard, I broke two rib

Brio Brainstorm - part of  Creating Action , a free email program from  Scoutie  Girl Find the Little Things That Put a Hop in Your Step   Tara  designed a fun worksheet to help us zero in on what pumps our enthusiasm,it's a fill in the blank work of art. Get your art on,  download  & fill in the blanks. My blanks are in red.

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
