Goals is a funny word. I guess it's strange to me because I'm horrible at making them, keeping them, talking about them, well you get my drift. I've got no problem wanting to do anything, it's just the final walkthrough I'm struggling with. This month, I'm working on a new line of Zillow Pillows, trying to get into the fantastic Corvallis Fall Festival, and juggling my Etsy shop along with keeping the ultra fancy shop Mod Pod stocked with Zillow Pillows. Okay, these things sound suspiciously like goals. Wants. Needs. Aren't they all the same? Am I actually good at saying what I should be doing, you know, like tending to my blog, but I need to do some mental reconfiguring to finish the tasks I create.

Pillows are the perfect "get-me-on-track-with-my-goals"

Using the squeezability of a retro-themed Zillow Pillow, I can fuel my creative energy into completing the goals I set for myself.

Below: a list of my goals for May - Please leave a comment if you have goals you'd like to attain, agree that goals is a funny word, or just simply want to type some letters because you used to own a manual typewriter. Writing, of any kind, is so Very.

Blogging daily
Four sales a week on Etsy
New pictures on Etsy
Write three short stories in two weeks
Buy my top five necklaces on Etsy (I have a love for necklaces like you may know a shoe lover)

Oooh have spent many, many years browsing the Corvallis Festival. Being born and raised in Corvallis.
I am much older than the festival. I will not try to get in, already to many good jewelry artists. But your pillows are Fab, and they would
remiss not to add you! Leta

Goals.... I'm really bad at those, too! I have a "to do" list that I try to get something X'd off from time to time. Does that count as goals? LOL!

My husband & I recently bought a house so one big goal is to get it organized where I am truly happy with it. I know it's a work in progress but I'm trying.

I also am 35 years old and a mom of 3 and I do not drive. I have a Learner's license and that is it so a huge goal is to get behind the wheel to practice and get my license. Easier said than done.....

So I guess I do have some goals, LOL! I also wanted to say that I was only introduced to Zillow Pillows this evening and I am loving everything I see! What a fun way to be creative and make a living!! I will definitely be telling my friends about you and your awesome creations.
