30 Things To Do While I'm 30 (Things I Love Thursdays!)

I love making my lists, checking them twice (!) and the satisfaction that comes from crossing things of them!

Just before my thirtieth birthday, I was inspired by some other list lovers (Elise Blaha - 24 and Hula Seventy - 38 Things To Do Before I Turn 39) to put together a list of things that I want to do before my next birthday.

List Love (Things I Love Thursdays!)

Today's Things I Love Thursdays! collection is inspired by all of the things on my own list of 30 Things To Do While I'm 30.

  2. I just finished my first one (necklace)! Decided to go to my p.m.s kit and use some of the fabric in it to recover the areas where there were seams(three of them)- I know,I just didn't want to buy something at this point...I still might find one or two without seams around here. Happy happies. Joyce
