Scout it out!

Hooray? @ 06:26 pm

Hello Ladyscouts!

I've been lurking for a while and always feel sorta crappy about it. I WANT to get involved, but I just SUCK.
Okay okay, I feel like I have some pretty valid excuses, like that I have a 2 year old, a 2 month old, and some seriously crippling social phobias , and SAD to boot.

So, I've been thinking, for a while now even.. that I would love to start some online activity for any ladyscouts that would like that sort of thing, like... maybe other people are too busy or too shy to hit all the crafternoons and such but want to feel like they are still ladyscouting it up, ya know?

I was hoping of getting a good resource list of online crafts together at some point, a link page or what not... we could all add to it, it'd be fun! There's soo very many great tutorials and such out there...

These are my somewhat Ladyscout related goals for the month of November.
1. Finish two projects for every one I start. (this is somewhat self defeating, but important going into Holiday crafting season).
2. try out a new technique or skill. (If I dont get to trying a new one I'll count this as my new technique although I've used it before but this time I used a different medium. ((white and dark chocolate with colored white chocolate done in the same way that one would do a FBC)) )
3. try a new recipe, one new one weekly if possible, but I'd settle for just 1 or 2 this month)
4. maybe write a tutorial for something I know how to do so I can share the love with the nets.

Do you all make goals like this?

If this is totally inappropriate, feel free to delete, I just want to interact with all you fine lady scouts in the way most easy for me at this time...

me and bobbie jo were talking about this .. months and months ago!!! we decided we're usually too hermity to go to the gatherings, but maybe if we had a social online interaction it would feel like we knew everyone better and wouldnt be so afraid?
besides, it'd be fun to showcase our stuff like any other online community would.

I sorta want to make up some online "badges" that people could post in their blogs once they earn it or something? I think it'd be cute.

I am all for varied ways to express scouty goodness! I say go for it!

Myself, I love making goal and to-do lists. Many people I know did lists this year of 50-100 things that they want to accomplish in the next 1-2 years. I made a list with 101 things on it and have already marked off 19 things. I feel so accomplished!
