Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

My Current Fav Kids Card

I’ll not post all six but here is my favourite …

I made the most adorable Kids Cards

last night. They are so damn cute! Can’t wait to make more.

I did it again!

I made all my own cards this year and was able to sell a few in work! I really enjoyed this as I hadn’t made a card from last Christmas. I’m thinking of making kids birthday cards, just to have to send out this year and limiting it there due to time restrictions!


I am pleased to say that all the Christmas cards I sent this year were hand made by me.

I’m still enjoying this hobby, so I’m going to list the different types of cards I’ll need over the next 12 months and get busy!




These are not finished yet, want to add little gold stars


Took time out to make these at the weekend ::
