Make It/365! Two Weeks In

I've been keeping a record of all of my 2017 "making," and I thought I would share some of the entries with you so you can check out my progress.  As promised, I have used the word "make" to refer to actual creative enterprises, as well as more abstract endeavors .  Check it out:

In the first two weeks of the new year, I have:

  • Made an effort to find a friend's lost dog by going door to door in my neighborhood.
  • Made a big pot of spaghetti.


  • Made a blog post. 
  • Made it to church on the first day of the year.
  • Made "cute animal" sketches in my sketchbook.


  • Made school lunches again after the winter break.
  • Made a master list of DIY cleaning products from a binder full of notes and clippings.
  • Made an appointment to start getting allergy shots (and made it to my appointment).
  • Made our house cleaner than it's been in awhile.
  • Made Valentine doodles in my sketchbook.

  • Made it through to the end of a book I was reading.
  • Made an afternoon snack for six little girls having a play date.
  • Made erasers out of eraser clay with my daughter.

  • Made a yummy dinner of spiced mini-burgers and pita bread.
  • Made excuses to myself about why I'm not making things in my craft room.
  • Made a beautiful dinner of roasted chicken and vegetables in a cast iron skillet.
  • Made a smoothie for lunch.
  • Made gingerbread cookies with my kids.


  • Made it through a major mishap--washing an entire box of tissue the girls let fall in their laundry basket.
  • Made my exercise goal on my new watch (on just one day, lol!).
  • Made chocolate chip banana bread.
  • Made a lunch date.
  • Made a Pin the Gumball on the Gumball machine with my daughter for her birthday party.

It's been fun to reflect on my day each evening through the lens of "making"..."what have I made today, anyway?" I hope to do more traditional making--working my way through the supplies in my craft room and the pins on my Pinterest boards--but until I get to it, I like seeing all the other ways "making" makes an appearance in my days.

Keep those ideas coming for my Make It/365 list! I got some great new ideas in the comments for my last post, and I will continue to add and update along the way.
