Here's some photos from my New Year's Eve. I didn't get any pictures of my husband and I because he was on call (he does HVAC), and of course he got called in around 11 pm!
My mom and I
My brother and his girlfriend
This year, I want to make a few resolutions and goals for my crafting & this blog.
~Post more often. There were weeks in 2010 where I only made one post. I would like to make it at least 3 per week. In total, I made 154 posts in 2009 and 156 in 2010. In 2011, I would like to make at least 200.
~Spend less time online and more time crafting. Sometimes I have 2 or 3 hours set aside to craft and I spend the whole time blog hopping, on facebook, or on messageboards. I am so inspired by everything that I see, but I don't get anything done!
~Make at least 1 Christmas card per week. That way, I will be ready with 50+ cards next December. I will play along with some of the Xmas challenge blogs to keep me on task.
~Try new things. I want to expand my crafting to include altered items and vinyl. I am really interested to try quilling too.
~Finish my wedding reception scrapbook. (I finished my wedding ceremony scrapbook, and I will be posting the rest of those layouts soon).
~Participate in at least one craft fair. I've always wanted to sell my cards, candles, frames, and photos. This will be the year that I finally try it out.
~Use my stash. I've been hoarding for YEARS! I need to stop buying and start using what I've got.
~Use scraps. I have two bins of scraps (one bin of solid colors and one bin of patterned papers) and they NEED to be used up!
~Use my Cricut and Gypsy more often. I have so many wonderful cartridges that don't get used. Lately, I only use my bug for cutting out lettering for my scrapbook layouts. I need to use it more often and for other things.
Happy crafting and a wonderful 2011 to all!
