Daily Goals for Momma Printable FREEBIE!

I live with many, many little people. I LOVE it, and most days I truly feel like the wealthiest woman in the world. And then there are the days that are long, stretching, exhausting, and emotional. It can be challenging balancing the needs — physical, emotional, and spiritual — of our little tribe with the needs of the house & to-do lists. Too easily I see my most successful accomplishments as what I have finished & gotten through. If I have the tidiest house, with all the socks arranged, and toys put away, but have bulldozed little hearts in the process, I have built a well-organized museum, not a refuge; if I make all the meals, healthy and homemade, but have served them with grumpiness and resentment, I have given them a cafeteria to eat in, not a table to feast at; and if I cross the finish line of the day with my list checked off, yet have not loved the souls that fill the house I’m so desperately trying to maintain, I have accomplished nothing of real value.

I made three different “Daily Goals for Momma” — I need to help myself keep the main things, the main things. I want to remember the good portion.

If you feel like you’d like some daily goals for Momma — here is a free printable in two different versions. This is the first one I handlettered, made after an earlier version I drew up two years ago.

Click the link below each picture to download an 8×10 PDF file you can print & enjoy! Print several more to pass along to your momma friends! All I ask is that you do not sell this print, in physical or digital form.

2013 Pinterest Projects


Well, well, well! I am highly ambitious for the 2013 year — I’ve selected TWELVE projects I’ve seen on Pinterest to try to do this year. In fact, we’ve already done three of the twelve this year: Rust has already managed to knock-out one for me; we did one together; & I’ve done one with the girls. At the end of 2012, I  looked over and over again at my ridiculously long  “To Try” board on Pinterest & picked these 12 to try this year.

In no particular order: 1. Salt Dough Ornaments Inspiration from I Rock So What | 2. Framing Bathroom Mirrors from Southern Hospitality | 3. Magnetic Me from Creative Juice | 4. Painted Mason Jars from Simply Ciani  | 5. You Had Me At Hello from Honeysuckle | 6. Family Cookbook from Clover Lane | 7. Painted Chalkboard Goals  from Mary Kate McDevitt  | 8. Paint-by-Number Makeover from Under the Sycamore | 9. Chalk Clock (source unknown) | 10. Anthro-Inspired Snow Globes from Whipperberry | 11. Chalk Ornaments from The Examined Life | 12. Painted Wood Sign from My Pink Life

{I realize #12 isn’t pictured above — I left it out! But I crammed in three different links to her beautiful painted signs above so you can catch my drift!}

Throughout the year, I’ll be updating on these 12 projects — starting with, obviously, the three we’ve already completed. Yay to craftiness, yay to DIY, and yay to Pinterest for being able to collect & share such inspiring projects!
