I feel like the Queen of Unfinished Projects.  This prompt was to write about something that I have always wanted to do, but have never done and the reasons for that.  I honestly can't think of anything that I want to do that I haven't at least tried doing yet.  I start something, and then life gets in the way of me finishing it.  A few of my unfinished projects are:

Quilt for R (25% complete):  This requires two hands to do, and recenly R has not been letting me set her down for more than 15 minutes.  So this project is on hold for the forseable future.

Reviews of Video Games and Books (5% complete): I have a ton that I want to write about, but the time it takes to write a comprehensive review can only be found late at night and early in the morning.  I like my sleep more.

Family Picture Collage (20% complete): I bought 12 frames at Target on clearance for this project.  I am going to put a grid of pictures on the wall at the top of the stairs and have one family picture in each frame starting with our wedding photo.  To get the frame evenly spaced and level, this project requires 4 hands, and with J working and me holding R constanly we only have 1 hand between us to work on that.

Photo Wall (50% complete): I have one giant wall of picture frames in a collage upstairs, but I have a connecting wall yet to fill with frames.  I have bins of frames just waiting to be hung up, bins that are taking up space in the office and master bedroom.  This one is just not done because I haven't felt like dedicating a couple days to doing it.  I need to create the paper templates, hang them on the wall, then hang up the picture frames.  That doesn't even include the time it will take to actually put pictures and stuff in the frames.

Blog Archiving (25% complete): I have been making Blurb books of my other (for family) blog to archive it in print form.  I am trying to make one book per year, and I have 2010 completed and on my shelf.  That is the easiet year because I had just started the blog in August and we found out we were pregnant with L in November.  No kids yet =  not many post or pictures.  The subsequent years are a little daunting to archive.

De-clutter House (1% complete): This one is pretty self explanatory.  I just haven't done enough towards this yet.

Unfortunately, I actually have more projects that I have not listed.  These are just the ones that are in the forefront of my mind as my maternity leave is rapidly coming to an end.  I am hoping to finish a few of them before I go back to work, that way I can work feeling a little less stressed about all the things I would rather be doing at home.
