Everyone is talking about their New Years Resolutions.
I have mine as well, but first let me share a card I made today.
It is an easel card. I have wanted to make one of these ever since the first time I saw one. I don't know why I do that, but I always put off what I want to do.
Does that make sense to you? I always do the things I don't want to do before I do something I really want to do. I started making this for my sister. She loves the colour blue and so I started with the colours. Then I couldn't find anything that suited her for the image. So I think this will go to her daughter, my niece Amanda. They both have birthdays this month.
Isn't this just a neat type of card?OK so onto my Resolutions for this year.
Here is my Resolutions for last year "my first blog post".
Ya I wasn't to successful.
My Resolutions for 2011 are:
Do a double page layout once a month.
Try my hand at some sketches
Try some challenges
Finish my Camp/cottage journal
Make more mini albums, even if they don't have a purpose...i love those
Make my Christmas quilt that I bought for this year
Sew my purses that I bought patterns for
Continue to enjoy my paper crafts
Make the projects that I wanted to make last year.
Tweak my blog and YouTube channel.
Get more active, I need this for my health, not an option
Loose 10 lbs these two go hand in hand
I would love to end the soda but not doable...so cut down.
Eat more healthy
Be creative everyday. This does not mean making a project everyday, but being creative in one way or the other.
Put myself first. This is going to be the hardest of all. I put my family and friends first.
This looks like a long list, I know. But they are doable. And they will enrich my life. They are things that I am passionate about. So because of that, I will hopefully obtain most of them.
So what are your resolutions. Or are you like my SIL and don't put the pressure on yourself, because you know you won't follow through with them?
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and you get to be creative today.
