Happy New Year-2014

Happy 2014 to you! I wish you all a fantastic year!

I have to say that 2013 wasn't so bad I became a GrandMa once again by welcoming little Tristan into the world just in time for Thanksgiving. I had a good scrappy year-didn't finish alot of my goals, but I was actually scrapping this year, so that is a good thing. Found Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog and glad to say I enjoy what they are doing for challenges and looking forward to 2014 with them making my kits and playing along with the challenges.
I don't know how many of you follow the one little word but I have chosen mine to be 2 little words: On Time
I need to get into some better habits of being On Time by actually working on things early instead of waiting to the last minute.
I have decided on my yearly crafting goals and I like to put that written down the 1st of the year so I have it for a reference also. It may seem like a large list, but most won't take long to complete and some are just an ongoing thing that either will take the year to complete or doesn't get completed at all. This is the year of scrapping and I want to get lots of pictures I have printed scrapped and make a dent out of my stash of paper and kits. I'm also planning to organize a bit better and situate the machines so I have access to all of them (mainly in reference to the Cricut Imagine). My list:
2014 Crafty Goals
  • Finish Zachary's 1st year album
  • 2013 Dec. Daily Book
  • Cruise Album
  • Start Tristan's 1st Year Album

Have you made your goal list for the year? Have you made any changes from crafting this year from last year? I wish you all a productive year ahead.....


  1. Happy new year Tina! You had some great goals set. I'm sure you can achieve them! I almost always write my blog posts ahead of time... usually on Sundays. It helps because I can write several at a time when I'm in the mood to write. I think it also saves time since you're writing them all and uploading pics at the same time!

    1. Happy New Year to you,
      That is what I'm thinking too that it will save time to get them up per week, this week is so broken up with the holidays that I will probably start this Sunday and something to do while watching the games :) Thanks for cheer! I hope to get them done this year :)
