43 10/11, “Tally” page information (tab, this blog) moved to history 9/17.) Unsubscribed from 1 mailing list 2/17. Wood stacking: 1 2 3 4 Counting this as complete, we never got the 4th load! If/when we do, I’ll put this “to do” back in. (3/1/17)
Writing: Memoir retype effort: 62.5% complete (I’m amused that I seem to do this in 3% chunks. I’m not counting or anything, it’s just that the sections are short, and it’s difficult emotionally, especially the first 3rd, so I’ve been doing it until I felt like quitting, then I let myself stop.) 3 stories into novel: Worked a little on one of the stories, call it 07% 9/20?Kitchen book: nothing new. Possible future editing jobs:
clean up & print, make stickers/stamps Need to hire a pro for this I’ve decided. After the taxes are done.
Paper cull and counting: updated tally 3/1, will move 1-2/2017 to archive next time I update the page.
Canister labels designed. Most supplies procured. Still to do: print labels and use! Various technical issues which need to be resolved. My word processor doesn’t have the right label template. Avery doesn’t let you do a merge for their online template designer, etc. I need to order the correct magnets. Make tutorial.
The simple answer would be to cover the labels with scrapbooking or other paper and print clear labels to go over them. My last step was always going to be putting clear shelf liner over the label to make them waterproof. Most of the label issues have been resolved, mostly. Still a wrinkle or two before I make a tutorial!
