My Word for 2016 is and my Goals for 2016

Good Morning you all :) I hope you had a fantastic holiday season, now that the New Year has begun we start to think about the goals that we want to achieve in the new year. Another thing to think about is, if you do this kind of thing, is One Little Word® 2016 that Ali Edwards began years ago. Not fimiliar with the concept this is what she has written on her post about it this year:
"The premise is simple - choose a word to invite into your life for the coming year. You live with it. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities and no right or wrong way to approach the adventure. Sometimes words have come to me out of the blue and other years I've gone looking for what it was I most wanted to bring into my life."
I don't actually participate with her class but I have enjoyed coming up with a word each year and focusing on it each year. So my word for 2016 is To-Do
To-Do to keep a daily and monthly To-Do goals so I can stay on top of what I want to get done that particular month and get them checked off :) I can break the goal down to manageable parts and have something To-Do each day to get to that monthly goal
So now to decide the monthly goals :) I know this month is cleaning and decluttering my craftroom :) Now to decide the daily and monthly To-Do goals for it. A project to work on over the weekend so I can get started Monday :) Right now my To-Do goals are to get this week's DT projects done over the weekend.
 I'm not the planner girl type, but I did get a monthly calendar planner this year for this reason to keep on top of things. A place to put my monthly goals and break them down a bit and then I can add to it what I did each day towards that goal. I also will be keeping a To-Do journal this year where I can write it down as I think of it and then check it off as I do it :)
My goals for this year is something I have been considering for a while now. I have chosen a few like decluttering and cleaning my craftroom, a closer walk with God, Purging a few spots in the house that need attended too and then selling the items in a yardsale or giving away depending on what it is. I want to continue trying to finish up my Big Pictures classes that I bought before their changes were made and I want to get caught up on my current classes as well. I want to stay on top of current pictures and scrap as I go with the stories that come to mind then and to work on the accumulation of old photos too, I want to be getting my DT projects done early this year no last minute crafting for me I find joy in crafting and want to keep it that way. I have a few specific scrapbooking projects I want to do this year, so theme albums will be popular posts this coming year. Just a few things that I want to get done this year and still enjoy time with family and friends. Dave and I plan to do things together more this year especially on the weekends, we want to reconnect on the weekends as we work different shifts during the week and connection can get a bit lost from time to time :) We aren't the date night type of people but we do enjoy a date day thing once in awhile now it's just making a point to actually doing it, something that an easily be done and enjoyable too. Would like to do something out of the homestead atleast twice a month, we enjoyed seeing many places and festivals over December and want to continue that through the new year.
Just a few thoughts and intentions I want to make happen in 2016..................
Did you or do you participate in the word of the year or your goals for this year :) I would love to read about it :) 


  1. great choice Tina! I choose the word submissive with my faithbooking. This is my first year picking a word and I am really looking forward to it! Together we will do this my friend :)

  2. Tina, I love 'to-do'. That's an inspired choice of words! Obviously, you now know that I *am* a planner kind of girl, but I started with 'to-do' lists, diaries and journals originally. I'm really keen on following your story as it emerges this year - so I'll be back to see how you progress. I hope 2016 is happy and productive for you x
