My other resolution is to use my stash except for basic supplies such as adhesive and I give myself permission to buy Cricut cartridges. However, I have a ton of paper and stamps and other embellishments that I really need to start using. Plus, I went WAYYYY over budget last year on crafts and I really need to rein it it. I hope to last until summer, we will see.
Project Life...I have resisted but I have gotten just so far behind on my scrapbooks that I am missing out on recording these moments that I can't get back. So I am attempting Project Life. I don't expect to take a picture every day but I want to take about 6-7 pictures each week and then do layouts here and there for events that warrant it and do mini albums on vacations or outings that I really want to focus some attention to. I will be using my stash! I have been so tempted to purchase items for this project such as a date stamp - I have a PTI calendar stamp set that has months and dates, plus some Justrite product that I have hardly used and possibly other things in my stash that would work. I was tempted to buy journaling cards. I can very easily cut up cardstock and add some scrap dp to it. Doing it this way makes it easier to journal on the computer and print it out and then cut it up. I am even using my own page protectors - CTMH 12x12 protectors that have broken up into 4x6 pockets which I had in my stash.
A really good way to use up my stash so I can justify buying more stuff! For example, I have two huge DCWV 12x12 paper stacks on Fall - I hardly do anything Fall like here so why the heck do I have all of this paper! I will be using it to make scrapbooks for colleague Christmas gifts and hopefully use it up. See what I mean? Impulse buying to the extreme. I liked it, bought it and now i don't know what to do with it. I will be showing you guys how I am using my stash and my Cricut for this project.
Get healthy which means eating out less, and cooking more. This is a hard one because I drive 50 miles a day for work but I need to just plan better. Also, get out and exercise more. My husband bought us bikes and still hasn't put them together and that would be a fun way to get out and exercise. I need to lose the baby weight from having Lily (um...she's 3!) and those 20 lbs are not going to magically disappear, I know because I've been saying abracadabra for 3 years and it hasn't happened.
So those are my resolutions. How about all of you? Please leave a comment on this post with a blog post regarding your resolutions. If you don't have a blog then leave a comment with your resolutions. I will chose a winner using random.org next Friday and will send the winner a box filled with fabulous crafting supplies. I have a ton of really awesome crafting stuff that I don't have room for and I would love to give some away. That's another thing - I hope to do more spontaneous giveaways for regular blog readers especially since I am moving to bi-weekly giveaways.
If you got this far - then you rock! Thanks for listening and hope this year finds you all healthy, happy and improved!
