New Years Goals
Of course I have to post about my goals for the new year. Everyone else is doing it so I have to do it, too. :) I do not use the word resolutions because I want my goals to be something I try to accomplish throughout the year not just at the beginning of every year. I'm just going to share my craft related goals as I'm sure you don't want to hear about my need to lose 25-30 pounds, or do you??? Okay, maybe I will add that in there. I eat when I create so that is really part of it all, right? Here we go.
*Send more of the cards I make. I used to be so good at sending out cards every week. I would usually make it a Sunday activity and just relax while I was writing friendly notes to people. Life just got too busy and I forgot why I started making cards in the first place. I need to get back to the beginning.
*Blog more, take more pictures, journal more about my life. This is a personal blog goal but I wanted to share it as it is a way for me to keep a better family history/journal. That is what scrapbooking is all about anyway.
*Talk on the phone less, work on genealogy & scrapbooking more.
*Eat less while I am in my Pink Loft and drink more water.
*Lose 20-30 pounds!! You can follow me over at The Pink Loser if you want to root for me. I am in a Biggest Loser contest with one of my close friends. The stakes are high as the loser has to watch the other persons children overnight while the other couple gets to have a night kid-free. Ahhhhhhhh, just the thought of that!!
*Make my videos more professional. I have the equipment, I just need to try some new techniques.
*Learn how to use my new Nikon D90, that I got for Christmas. I LOVE holding my new camera. I feel so........ professional and like I know what I'm doing ....... when I don't!! I want to take on photography but I don't have a lot of time to do anything outside of the home. Therefore, I am going to watch a lot of online videos and read tutorials. I know I can do it!!!
*Do my best to be the ME I want to be. I cannot be you or her, I can only be ME!!
