Happy New Year to everyone!
Last year I posted my crafting resolutions and I found it so helpful to keep me on track so I want to do the same this year.
1) Post one new card a week.
Last year I wanted to post at least once a week. While that didn't always happen, I realized I posted 297 posts in 3 years. So that averages to just a little more than 1 post a week. Often I post in spurts and starts, but for the most part it worked. I want to continue that goal.
2) Use at least 2 pre-stamped image a month.
I used 25 pre-stamped images last year so I blew that goal out of the water. Last year I only aimed for 12 in total so I rock. I still have 2 boxes of images to go so lets keep this one.
3) Use all my stamps at least 3 times or it has to go.
Well this one didn't work so well. I did a big purge in January and another in July. Other than sentiments, I don't think I used a single stamp 3 times. More significantly, I still have a large collection of uninked stamps. While I didn't buy many stamps in 2012, I did win quite a few so I may actually have gone backwards. Will continue this challenge.
4) Use my scraps.
I actually created over 100 ATC valentines in 2012 for my kids, mother and myself (all in elementary schools) and managed to do it all from scraps. I worked so hard to use up scraps and I swear they multiply in the night. I'm still working on this one.
5) Create 5 scrapbook layouts a month during the school year and 100 during July and August.
I really want to finish my 2010 album and start my 2011 album.
6) Learn to crochet.
Just the basics but I always wanted to try!
I know this is a lot but I do enjoy my crafting and DH actively encourages me to take time to do so at least several times a week. I tend to be calmer if I get regular crafting time to myself. It's one of my few girly indulgences.
Best wishes to you in 2013 and good luck in keeping your own resolutions.
