A TA-DA List ! - New Month, New Plans, New Zest !

(Ta-Da ! -detail of an art journal page from last year)
So today the awesome and always inspiring Michelle Ward has a post about changing your To-Do list into a Ta-Da List ! How cool is that ? (as Michelle would ask ) I just love this idea ! I spend so much time thinking about that damn to-do list...the things that need to be done, what if I do them wrong, how can I fit them all in, blah, blah blah !!!!
Enter Ta-Da list ! A way to celebrate what you got done, what you have accomplished, what you already did right ! I think I need this big time !!!!
So in honor of Michelle's inspiration and the beginning of a new month (Ta-da, Lived through January '09 !!!), here is my wonderful Ta-Da List for February 1, 2009 :
Ta-da ! - Connected on the phone with a blog pal, Carolyn at 8 Golden Paws ! She seems so very, very nice, and she and I have some big plans !!!!
Ta-Da ! - Filled out the registration forms and signed the check ready to be mailed tomorrow morning for THIS !!!! I am going to SAW in September !
Ta-Da! - Packing bags and making tracks to go to Mont Tremblant and Montreal to see my Katie Cupcake and the rest of my wonderful family, and to attend the big Girl's Weekend Bash at Natalie's House next Sat. ! Think girlfriends, good food, good tunes, and lots of silliness and dancing !
Ta-Da ! Posted a post on the blog to say "See you soon !" to my blogland pals as I head off for a week !
I hope you have a great week. I may check in a few times while I am gone too. I hope you find lots of things to add to your ta-da list this week !

Oh, you're just brilliant Kim! I love this! Especially when you say it while throwing the arms wide and jumping up...I think I'll try this tonight when I serve my family left overs for dinner. TA DA! (except I'll set the food on the table first.) I think it will definitely sweeten the deal, don't you? hehe
Have fun and kiss those baby cheeks lots!

Hmm .. I'm thinking that you should seriously consider a trip out (North)West to visit some of your art buddies. Wouldn't that be a TA-Da to savour! Arlene lives like 5 minutes from the International Airport too :)
