Project Punch List

Hello my lovelies!

Today I’m sharing my 2021 Project Punch List! Last year, I went around my house, Notes app open on my iPhone, and started logging every little (or big) thing I wanted/needed to tackle in each room. The idea was to come up with 52 items, so that I could complete one task each week and have the list done by the end of the  year. Some of the items are small, and require the same supplies as another item, so they can be done at once. Others are bigger and may take more than one week. And quite frankly, some are more expensive than I may be able to tackle in 2021.

But I’m not going to worry about finishing the list this year. If I do, it’s an added bonus. I’ll just do the best that I can, and that will be good enough. As it turns out, I had more than 52 tasks on my list after I went to each room. I completed some in 2020 (crossed off below), and I’m left with exactly 52 now! Totally not planned…
