Listing slightly!

I love lists, me :) So how pleased was I to come across this fabby idea to make 52 lists over 52 weeks? Yay! The first one was posted yesterday, and was entitled 'Today I will...' So here's mine:


I haven't decided yet whether to go with a similar style across all the lists, to try to get a different style for every list, or something in between.... It'll probably depend on the subject for each list and how I respond to it :) I do know that I plan to keep them all in a decorated Graze box as a special 'Listed Art Journal'! But I shan't decorate the box till I've got at least a few of the lists, so I can get a 'feel' for the project as it builds and style the box to fit in with that. And meanwhile, I shall list things to my heart's content and have art journally fun along the way :)

Anyone else joining in with this fun project?

I like lists but I think that would be over-listing for me! Definitely fun to read others though.

I cannot enlist for fear of commitment, but am ever so admiring of your list.

Ooh, how fun! However, I think such a List Mania would finish me off for good! With so many lists to think about, I would need a list to keep track of them, plus another list to keep track of the things on the other lists that I still needed to do/finish/make/eat/buy etc, etc...

Thanks, and I hope you have fun, but I think I'll just stick to my basic "Stuff that I need to do" type of lists!

I don't think I'd get through my week without a list (or two or three), but I'm with Sian, adding "make lists" to my list seems like overkill, especially since I'm still feeling behind from our vacation!

Looks like a fun idea - I am totally a list-maker. I look forward to reading your lists!

Fun idea, Mel! I like your number 10... ;o)

Some days I have long lists - sometimes they're depressingly short. Like today's: finish your grading and turn them in. They're a bit overdue!

I like the idea but already doing 3 daily prompts - what is it with June that they all pop up in blogland- will save them to do later in the year

Karen said...

love your list Mel - so colourful and fun but I make lists only when I am under pressure or stressed! Perhaps I should try non stressed lists as some sort of therapy

Kirsty.a said...

Oh no. Not another fab blog prompt idea. I am absolutely a list-maker and I doubt I'll be able to resist this one now. And I'l hold you totally rsponsible!

Alison said...

I do like lists, but I think this is a list too far for me..looking forward to seeing your though Mel!

Great list! xxx

And now Shim has added 10 on the
10th. My blog wil be nothing but lists if I do this too. PLus - I really think I've the exhausted the 'Today I..' angle recently. I'll keep an eye on that blog for some good inspiration prompts though

I do like a good list, your looks very pretty :)

Angelfish said...

I am also a lover of lists and yours looks very funky Mel:)

Carrie Rosalind said...

Sounds like a fun day - especially since #10 was involved! :)

Beverly said...

I ADORE! lists and your's is lettered so fun :) I pretty much do this on a monthly basis, don't think a weekly one would work for me.

You know you're a decent person when you're idea of "naughty" is missing church =)
