Bucket List Tag: Skills Edition

That's right, I haven't forgotten!

The wonderful Evie at A Period Drama Fangirl tagged me for the "bucket list tag" back in July, so here I finally am after much procrastination and un-inspiration with a freshly made list! :D

Since I can't really think further than a week ahead (haha), and praise Jesus I have too many aspirations to ever write down, I decided to jazz up the tag and do a "skills" or "talent" edition! It consists of writing 10+ things that I wish to accomplish in the very nearby future (or not so near!) that are art or craft related.

I would love to hear about the things that you want to learn, so I tag everybody reading this! Yes, this means YOU! ;) 

Without further ado, here are 15 things that I *will* wrap my brain around very soon!

I want to learn how to...
  1. Play the recorder! :D
  2. Play the piano. Do I still have my keyboard? Hmm...
  3. Shade and light properly when drawing.
  4. Draw realistic facial features (jagged eyebrows, anyone?).
  5. Draw proportional bodies.
  6. Perfect the art of putting my brain's fictitious characters on paper!
  7. Draw digitally and elaborate if I see that it's my cup of tea.
  8. Sculpt a miniature “Toothless” figurine in polymer clay. Come on, who wouldn’t love that?? *__*
  9. Resume the chapters of my short story and actually maintain a suspenseful plot…
  10. Sew bell sleeves. Ah! 
  11. Sew an historical reenactment dress (although I’m far from being able to!). Mythical or traditional-like?
  12. Sew a flattering skirt with lining, or comfortable pants.
  13. Sew a lightweight square-tiered dress/skirt, kind of like this and that.
  15. Further my studies in the how's and why's of herbal medicine.
Voilà! :) Isn't it marvellous that our very God gave each of us the rarest of talents, and that we can actually use them to worship Him??

Even the slightest of talent or skill can do a world of difference in the Kingdom of God. Never doubt this: what you've been gifted with is precious!

Tell me the things you wish to learn, and together we can pray for it's realization!!! :D

In love from your sissy,


  1. Oooooh how lovely! Thank you so much for your lovely words and introduction!
    This should give you a better understanding about me :D

    1. Thank you Evie!! :D Ahh, I see that we have a lot of similarities, I love your pins! I just followed you :) Thanks for sharing your Pinterest with me!

  2. I think it would be super cool to learn Dutch since I have relatives who live in Holland. Languages count as art, right? ;)

    1. Of course it does! :D That would be a very nice skill to have under your belt!

  3. I would love to open up my own home businesses, learn to speak french, play the piano, and hold a bake sale:) I love your new profile pic!!!!

    1. These are great goals!! :D I pray they come to pass! And thank you!

  4. Oooh, I agree with you on learning how to sew and play the piano! I keep hurting my fingers trying either one of those... ouch!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Haha, yes! The best tip to sewing is to use the right needle, I've learned the hard way! ;) I hope you accomplish your goals, and thanks for commenting!


➺Comments are a blogger's dearest treats! Be a darling and leave me one so I know that you stopped by! :)
