30 Before 30

I turn 29 in two weeks. Kinda crazy, but I don't mind. My theory is that approaching milestones should only bother you if you aren't happy with how your life is going. And I'm happy. Still, I thought it would be fun to jump on the blogger bandwagon and make a list of 30 things I'd like to do in the next year. I'll let you know when I accomplish them.

1 Lose 20 lbs (which would bring me back to my pre-baby weight)
2 Recover chair
3 Paint desk
4 Redo portfolio site
5 Get kids book ready to send out
6 Do a craft fair
7 Learn to use goache

10 Be published for something
11 Draw some more little houses and send out a press release
12 Sew S a dress

15 Get my art in a local shop or gallery (other than just greeting cards)
16 Perfect cupcakes
17 Grow garlic
18 Build a bookcase
19 Learn to shoot manually (camera...not guns. I mean I'm fine with guns, but that's not the point)
20 Organize basement
