New Name, New Projects, New List!

New Name, New Projects, New List!

Welcome back to Monday, everyone!

Hope your weekend was awesome — mine was crazy, but fun!

Here is my Project Elephant list for this week…

Project Elephant #1d

There’s a little disclaimer on crossing off #4.

Remember this post about how awesome Ty’s parents and my parents are?

Well Ty’s mom hung the artwork and the plaques, and my dad hung the black sign. I hung the family picture, but it’s also not the only thing that I want to go on the wall. So while the item is crossed off, the project isn’t completely finished. I’m just not sure when I’ll be able to get the rest done.

But here are some pictures of what has been done so far.

Nice, but definitely not completed. It’s all very plain so far. It needs some sprucing up! I’m still on the hunt for a few things to add. I’ll probably print some more pictures to place on either side of the big family picture — it’s 2′ x 3′ so they’re gonna have to be a little bit bigger, too. I’ll keep you updated!

In new information, the blog that started this whole Project Elephant idea (check out my post about it here), has been remodeled, renamed, and repurposed. It’s still awesome, and it’s still written by the same spunky and spectacular woman, but it seems kind of silly to keep calling my project posts “Project Elephant”, when the overall campaign has been dismantled.

I’m still so fond of the idea of “eating an elephant one bite at a time,” so I will continue my projects in that spirit, but it will no longer be called Project Elephant. Make sense? Yes? No? Just nodding your head and moving on? Okey dokey!

Okay, so now I need a new name for the project lists! I’m having an informal contest. If you have an idea of what my project lists should  be called, leave the suggestion in the comments. If you comment, I will send you my favorite recipe for chocolate cake (I have a few other recipes if you don’t like chocolate or don’t like cake…just let me know what you’d like instead!). I’ll pick a winner on my post next Monday (assuming anyone comments…so comment, people!!).

So in light of this new change, I made a new list! I transferred the last item from the previous list, so don’t worry — it’ll get done!

Project List #2

As you can see…I’ve got a lot planned for the next few weeks! Hope you’ll join me in completing some projects!

Anyone else started a project lately? Have you been able to break it down into doable little bites? 

Have a new name idea for my project lists? Don’t forget to comment, please!!

Hmmmm, maybe calling it "Footsteps"or "Footprints" because every project is a step in a new direction and is discovering ground that has never been touched. You have to take one step to move on to the next part of the project, just like you have to keep walking to get to your next destination.

My vote is for it to be called "my wife is beautiful and incredible" list. That's got to be good for some cake, yeah?
