It's Going to Be All About 2011

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope you enjoyed your festivities if you participated in any. We usually do not go anywhere, but rather enjoy each other's company. My husband did watch football which makes him happy and I had time to craft. We told our 16 year old son he could not drive anywhere (it would have been only his second time driving alone) due to people being on the road who may not belong there...if you know what I mean! My 12 year old daughter tried to stay up to watch the ball drop only to fall alseep about 30 minutes before midnight. When Dad checked on her it was 2 minutes past. Bummer!

Now I think it is time to reflect on 2010 and set my goals for 2011 before this day gets started (everyone is still sleeping, so it is nice and quiet).

Since I just started making cards and posting in July I feel I have made some progress. I know there are are many "things" I still need to try and want to make (easel card, shutter fold, banners, etc.), so there is no time like now!

Here are some of my favorites from my first 6 months. 


My crafty goals for 2011...
1. Learn different techniques to make cards and actually try them.
2.  I would love to be published (just once would put a smile on my face).
3. Meet new crafty people. Send me your link and I will visit!
4. Participate on Design Teams and in a few Blog Hops...Just ask me!
5. Become a pro using my Gypsy. : ) I will accept tips and suggestions.

Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers. There is so much I want to say, but the time is just not right yet. One of my grandmothers use to say, "Never go to bed angry." I agree. You never know what may happen. 

Make each day count,

P.S. Be sure to come back tomorrow for a giveaway. I am still in the spirit of giving rather than receiving. : )

  7. I've so enjoyed your blog this year...oops, I mean last year! :-) I wish you much success in reaching your goals...the first step is writing them down, so you're well on your way!

  8. What great projects! I found you later in the year so it's a treat to see some highlights! Best of luck with your goals. It sounds as though something is bothering you and I pray that you are able to work through it. Your grandmother was a wise woman. Being angry will affect YOU more than anybody else.
    I look forward to being a continued follower of your blog in 2011!!
