Welcome 2011! My Resolutions for the New Year

Happy New Year!  We woke to MINUS 10 degrees!  Cold!  But the sun is out and it is so beautiful!  A GREAT way to start 2011!  And, the kids and I stayed up to Midnight!  Yahoo!  We did it!!!!!!

Resolutions?

Why, yes!  I do make resolutions!

 Here's my philosophy on resolutions, goals, and dreams:

I am a list maker.  I set goals. I am a big dreamer!  And, it doesn't bother me if I don't reach the finish line, just as long as I am working toward the goal, I feel I have made progress!  As in, some work is better than no work.

Last Year's Big resolution was to stick to a year long scrapbook related challenge.  Project12 - sponsored by Scrapbook & Cards Today - with sketches made by Becky Fleck, and hosted by Davinie.  Guess What?  I did it!  I have one layout to go (December) and I need to finish my September, and poof!  I am done and I have a beautiful Album finished! Yahoo!!!!  Accomplishment.  Finished. 

So.. This Year?   I have a list (of course!).

2011 Resolutions/Goals/Dreams:
  1.  I am doing Project12 Again.  Love it so much!  I might focus on a 'theme' for the year.  Thinking on that. I found myself deciding between ranch life photos, vs about the kids, vs highlights vs me.  All could have their own album but who the heck has the time???? Hmm.. maybe one photo of each category?  Let me know your thoughts!
  2.  I also signed up for Ali Edward's Class - One Little Word.  The word I picked is 'Thrive'.  (more on that later - why I picked the word, etc.).
  3. I am a 'lover' of calendars/datebooks/list making opportunities.  But, I struggle with finding the perfect  'one size fits all'.  I even had an electronic fancy thing (PDA - that I tried syncing with my desktop) that truthfully, drove me crazy!  I like to write.  I like paper.  So, sometime in late 2010, via Ali Edwards Blog, I signed up for the Log Your Memory Log Book. I purchased the hard copy - split into 2 books.  I am not using this for my daily calendar but for my 'memory calendar'.  ** Note:  Edited on 1/4/11 to say:  I had my light bulb moment last night!  I am getting regular emails from LYM, and am now registered on their website, and my gosh!  There is ALOT that goes with this purchase - some real nice exclusive 'members only' goodies for those that purchase the log book! I am now a happy camper!***  I love the themes, prompts, and 'extras' that are tied to scrapbooking.  I might get the online version instead so I can 'tweek it' to fit my snobby needs.   After I discovered it did not fit my appointment needs, I bought a very nice, glossy,  Mary Englebright Datebook, for my 'calendar' and I will use the LogBook for 'memory stuff'.  (So far, so good!) 
  4. And... Lifestyle Changes.  I have a second One Little Word.  But, it should be my Big Word.  And that is MOVE.    I am going to be 49 this year, and I really am not 'the girl' I used to be!  Before I married (and these changes were all my doing, not blaming my husband) I used to bike, run, swim and 'get out and play' more.  I moved this body!  So... before I turn 49 I want to have established a 3x a week moving routine.  The deadline on that?  May 12!
So.. There you have it!  My 2011 resolutions!  And I put them here, in print, so I can come back to them, and to be accountable...

Happy New Year!  I gotta 'move' and clean the house and get ready for the  1-1-11 party girl birthday!

Yay...we'll be doing the One Little Word class together! :> Congrats on completing Project 12 and continuing it next year, er, um, I mean THIS year. I think a theme could be cool, but if its the only scrapping you are doing (time...always gets in the way, huh?! lol) and you are doing the OLW album (on yourself & your word), then highlights or a combo would catch a little of everything. If you are or eventually will scrap other events, then run with a theme that speaks most to you! (Am I making sense?! :>)

Happy New Year, Andi!!

Happy Birthday, Sami!! :>

Your blog is so cute, I love that design! Thrive is a great choice, I have never tried Ali's project because I can never settle on a word. Maybe I should pick "indecisive", haha! Happy New Year!
