Week 13 – List the things you want to make
At first, I had a really hard time coming up with this list because I can’t physically make things and carry it with me around the world. Then after giving myself two seconds to mull it over, I realised I
did in fact have so many things I would love to make, and I even came up with a handful of stuff I can make now. So here I go, my list of things I want to make:

- A book – either a physical book, ebook or a “how
to” guide, I just really want to make a book! I want to see my photos in
print again, I want to share my thoughts on travel, planning, organising or
even compile a book about our wedding. But most importantly I want make a book
about finding the joy and giggles in my life (just like this blog!)
- A cafe on wheels – in Hong Kong I was fascinated by this
little café, Teakkha, serving the best tea and sweets. It was so gorgeous and quaint
that I wanted to take it home with me. When we were in Adelaide I was exposed to
the world of food vans, trucks, carts and bikes.
I want to make a little cart that attaches to a bike so I can tow it around town selling paleo sweets and tea. I’d ride my pastel coloured bike through the streets, perhaps even ringing a little bell as I peddle-and-pedal along.
- Sweet yummies again – I can’t wait for Eat Drink Paleo
Cookbook by Irene Marci to come out! I
want to make all sorts of cheeky treats (sweet paleo goodies), and who knows, maybe this will be the
kick in the butt I need to start my cafe on wheels?
- More short films – inspired by the 30 Day Filming project, I took on Hailey’s
and Sue’s challenge and filmed every day. The plan was to turn the footage into
a short film under 2 minutes but even though I missed the deadline for the competition, I’m still determined to get back into editing!
- An assortment of things for our home – we have a small
enclosed semi outside space in the front of our apartment that needs a little
love. I want to make a cute white painted sofa made from pallets and then top it off with some darling cushions (do I attempt to make it myself?) After that thought nestled into my brain, I thought
of other DIY tasks, I want to turn one wall into a chalkboard or maybe even a giant magnetic wall.
- A little area for my crafty projects – where I can make
plastic stitched bags, magazine coasters or jewellery, perhaps sew a dress, crochet a scarf or even convert shirts into
singlets. Then I can finally re-wear my freebie t-shirts (the ones I score from conferences/doing a
flashmob) which are always too big for me. Speaking of clothes, I really want
to make more room in my closest by having less stuff and tackling the project
Once I got started on this list I realised the possibilities
are truly endless and not all things need to be handmade. A few ideas I
thought I could “make” in the digital world are a scrapbook, an iBook, a
recording, a game or even an app and one day maybe an ecourse. So many things
This week I will make a short film (which I’ve just finished
editing and ready to share with you next week!)
What is on your make list?
