32 things in 2011

As many of y’all know, I went to the life-changing Confidence Workshop with Me Ra Koh and her husband Brian last month.  Well, today is a BIG today for four of the women who attended the workshop with me—they have applied for the amazing SOAR! Scholarship for 2011.  I am so excited for Summie, Kelli, Jeannie, and Heidi; they are all ready for such BIG things!

After November’s workshop, I seriously considered applying for the SOAR! Scholarship myself.  Then, Adam and I sat down to talk about our hopes and dreams for 2011—and we’re hopeful that something even bigger than the SOAR! Scholarship is on the horizon.  :)

Last night, while over 100 women were furiously finishing up their SOAR! Applications for the midnight deadline, I took a cue from one of my other inspirations, Elise, and created a “to-do” list for 2011.  (It looks like Elise makes her list on her birthday, but I’m ready to jump in NOW!)

  1. Design a photography logo.
  2. Organize and back up all photos to CD and external hard drive.
  3. Research recertification requirements.
  4. Go to the dentist.
  5. Sew something.

  1. RE #6: I can help you with the legal stuff if you want.

    #7 For business cards you might want to check out moo.com

    #13: Locally I like Photo Express. They do a pretty good job and aren’t too expensive. For online you might want to check out mpix.com.

    #26: That’s been on my to-do list for a while. Let me know if you want to approach places together.

    Good luck!

    • I love moo.com! I’m just waiting to get enough pictures in my portfolio to have them printed.

      And yes, I’d love your input re: being legal! :)

      I’m trying out WHCC for pictures…they sent me a test batch and they were beautiful. I’m going to order more next month to check out sizes and pricing.

      Thanks, Helen!
