About Me

I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children. My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)

February!  And tomorrow is groundhog day.  I have to say, I am hoping he sees his shadow and goes back in his burrow, I want 6 more weeks of winter.  We have had no real snow this year...it has been so mild, more like a cold spring. 

Did you make any resolutions or goals for the new year?  I took January to think about this...there are a lot of things going on in my life right now that I wish I could change, but...out of my control, so I decided to do something about the things I can control.  So, my five goals for the year are:
1.  To finish what I started...a total house de-clutter.  I have been working this for a couple of months and I want to continue with it. 

2.  Get my scrapbooks caught up.  I am on the way with this...I organized all the digital photos from the last 3 years, made a list of events & I am now comparing with what I have done.  I should have 2011 all caught up in about 4-6 more layouts :)  Then back to 2010!

3.  Work on a healthier lifestyle.  This includes losing some weight, but also just being more active, managing stress in a constructive way, etc.  This includes participating in 2-3 5K with DH and DS.

4.  Blog at least twice a week...and not always craft stuff.  I have decided that if I am going to be on Pinterest, I need to use the pins I save...so I will share that with you...and some other fun things going on.

5.  Slow down!  I feel like I am constantly doing...and overwhelmed at times.  I am going to learn to say, "NO."  and to prioritize and simplify.  I need time for myself...and I need to enjoy things more...

I am sure this list will change as the year progresses and I complete things on the list, but this is a good start.  So, what are your resolutions/goals?
