Happy New Year. Love the calendar cover. It is so pretty. My goal for 2011 is also to scrap from my stash - scrap more and buy less.

Country Twinkle said...

My biggest New Year resolution is to make myself not be afraid to throw caution to the wind and start doing layouts. I mostly make cards but get stuck when I try to do a layout. 2nd resolution drink more water and less soda.

Wow I just found your blog during the New Year's Blog Hop your work is amazing. I have become a follower and will definately be back. I especially like your mini albums. Thanks so much for sharing your talent. As for New Years resolutions I have only made one. I am going to actually start using all of the scrapbooking supplies that I have collected over the last two years instead of letting them collect dust. Thanks again for the inspiration.

simplybren said...

I have quite a few resolutions this year. Ranging from lofty to super simple. I want to be a more supportive Mom to my children. the simple reduce my use of plastics in my home..
simplybren at hotmail dot com

Sue in CT said...

I made a few but one is to at least get caught up in one of my scrapbooks. I just did the birth pages for my daughter and one of my son's but my children are now 30, 32, and 34 so you see I have some catching up to do. Another is to get Tim's products. I have a limited income and sometimes I have a little extra and I end up buying other things and not Tim's so I guess it is more like "spend my scrap money wisely". I also need to keep my health in check. Save for a trip. There are a few more but I won't list them all since all you wanted was two.
I like your altered calendar, can see some "Tim" in there without you even saying.
Happy New Year to you and yours!

Well, I made a resolution years ago to not make any more resolutions. I do though make goals. 1) To find another teaching position - I am a teacher without a job. 2) Start the process for foster care. We want to foster to adopt.

Leti (iluv2craft) said...

i reallyl ike how you project came out. tks for sharing. My Personal resolution is more of a life mission. To continue to work on being a better version of my higher self. My scrap goals are to find time everyday to be creative, even if its 5mins to jot something down in my scrap journal.

I like that you are putting yourself on a budget and trying to scrap your stash, i hav been challenging myself to do the same lately. When we moved in and i got my craft room set up, my husband said you could never use all that stuff in your life time. And i just want to prove him so wrong LOL

And at the end of the year just lay a big stack of all the pages and things i completed. but the thought of using all my goodies is scary as well, and there are always so many juicy new things. its so hard lol let me know if you find any good Using your stash Challenge blogs i been looking but so far no luck!

ok now i am rambling :_ so following *wink

Wonderful work! Thank you for sharing and doing the blog hope.

My crafting resolutions: use up some of my stash--which requires spending more time in my craft room and less time at the craft store buying things to make things, that then I don't seem to get to. Also to keep my room organized!

Thanks again,

Oops! I almost forgot: my New Year's resolutions are to join more paper crafting challenges (can you believe I've never done one?!) and to exercise and eat healthy (I know; everyone always says this, but I stopped working out 6 months ago when we got super busy with a move, new house, & home improvement or actually completion projects!;)
