I Think I Need A Checklist...

...for when I finish a project. I'm not sure if it's because I'm usually cutting it close to my deadline, or because I'm just so excited to send a project off to the recipient, but I seem to always forget to take a photo of my projects.

Case in point...I made a basket for the May basket swap, yet taped up the box, and then realized I had no photo.

So, you would think I learned from my mistakes? Nope.

What did I do this week - finished up a project late at night, fell asleep with the best of intentions of photographing it in the morning light and then sending it off. But, looks like I missed a step. I ended up wrapping the project up, put it in the mail and then on the walk back from the post office only then realized I had no photo.

Oh well. It's a mother's day present for my mom, so I guess I can get a picture of it the next time I'm up visiting the folks!

So, I guess this brings this to my checklist idea. Maybe I need a visual reminder (more than my camera sitting on my desk just asking to be used) to remind me of what needs to happen before the tape goes on the package!

  1. What a very nice May Basket you recieved. Were ou able to save the butterfly? I know what you mean about taking the pictures. I am really bad about taking my camera with me and then not taking any pictures.
