Inspired by Elise Blaha to complete the same number of goals as your age. I took up calligraphy because I love kwerner's writing. So two muses that got me to a new hobby I love. I have the most amazing instructor that will forever be my friend, Ruth McDonald Gates. I think it's safe to say I'm addicted.
As for my 27 things to do before I turn 28...

Take photos of everyday people in my life

Organize Photos on computer- using photoshop to tag everything...a work in progress...every new set of photos are tagged and if I have time and stay off the internet I am plugging away at the million old photos
Paint walls in house- have paint color pick out and mixed now putting it on the walls is the goal
Paint a mural- want a cherry blossom branch in my bedroom and an old world map in my bathroom
Teach Shelby how to scrapbook- just need to set a date she's ready she has already been asking
Stop feeling intimidated by people- have not really documented why I let people do this to me, but seeing myself stand up for what I believe in here lately makes me think there has been some sort of progress

I can say I am really impressed with my progress. Now creating the book to put them in, perhaps that should have been a goal as well. 12 out of 27 is not a bad start...and I still have 9 more months to go!
