New Year...New Goals

Hey, all!! I hope that everyone had a fabulous holiday season. I just got back from traveling for the last two weeks...I was literally all over the place. I had a great time and now I have a few new pictures to scrap as well!

I've been thinking about New Year's resolutions...I don't ever make them, but this year I have decided to set some crafty goals for myself:

1. I want to make 100 layouts that I am satisfied with...the key is *satisfied*. I make plenty of crappy layouts all the time...I really want to turn out some quality stuff this year. Plus, for me it will be hard to get 100. I'm pretty busy with work, but I think I can do it...

2. I want to try new scrapping techniques...I have been branching out a little bit recently with paint and such, but I'd like to keep branching out.

3. I want to start making cards. For some reason, I've had a very difficult time doing this. My cards always end up looking like a kindergarten project, but I'm gonna keep working at it.

4. Use some of those scrappy supplies that I have had lying around forever. I don't know if anyone else does this, but I have a horrible habit of buying patterned paper that I absolutely LOVE and then not using it because I don't want to use it up. So stupid...but I hoard the stuff. I'm going to try not to do that this year...haha!

Do YOU have any crafty goals for twenty-ten? I'd love to hear what they are.

I will leave with you a reminder of my challenge (there's still one week left to enter!) and a picture of my first layout of the year. I am pleased to say that I used a new technique...glimmer mist! I've never used it before...I like it. I know, I know...so not a big deal...but I'm branching out with baby steps...

Welcome back! I love that LO. I always read about glimmer mist but have no idea how to use it myself. Maybe I should branch out this year and try that. Thanks for sharing!

i know EXACTLY what you mean about hoarding papers. I am sooo bad for doing that. Or I will by three or four sheets of it because I don't want to 'use it all up'

pathetic, I know. :)
