100th Post = Bucket List

This is my 100th post since starting my blog at the end of October (I later added some posts retrospectively from a private blog). Wowzers! 100! That’s a lot of writing and photos.

My 3 most popular posts so far have been:

1. Dinosaur Applique T-Shirts

2. Hot Air Balloon Craft

3. Fairies? Sylvanians? Dollies? Elves?

I felt I should celebrate such a milestone. I was going to write 100 things I wanted to achieve however, it turns out that thinking of 100 things is harder that it seems. This will be an ongoing ‘bucket list’. Nothing too fancy. I’ve included some big things to get excited about but they are mainly achievable, realistic goals that will make me smile. So in no particular order:



1. Create my family tree

2. Have a dog as part of the family

3. Have a full body massage, facial, pedicure and manicure in one day

5. Make my own perfume scent

    What an exciting list! I will look forward to reading about your progress. 🙂 I have the NIV student Bible, edited by our friend Philip Yancey, which has three different reading tracks to help you read the whole of the bible in a certain time scale – I can recommend this, it really helped. x

        Haha, not my real friend!! I meant that both you and I like Philip Yancey, and he is therefore a friendly figure to have editing a Bible. 🙂
