Need to get better at grocery shopping weekly again, too much take out the past months. getting better but still need to work on it
Only buy scrap items I need, I need to work down some of this stash.
Carts, only if it is a good price and I will use it frequently.

Excercise daily and eat healthier, I need to work off 15 more pounds and I will be happy with myself. down 5 more pounds
Try to be less stressed, changing jobs is going to help in this area more than anything.

My goal is just to get more scrapping done in 2012 than I did in 2011. I started this year off with a bang and then spring came and I just totally fizzled out. Tomorrow my plan is to clean up my scraping room. I was going to do it today but just didn't make it down there.

Happy New Year everyone! And happy scrapping!

The song from Peter Pan is in my head...."We're following the leader, the leader.."! Excellent pattern to follow though Rebecca!

General Swapping
One page per day, but must include some type of journaling on it.
Possibly 3 swaps, Color, Dland, MAW if there is one. I too have too many things Im not getting to use.

Projects to Finish
Baltic Sea Cruise!
It will 2 years this year and its time to wrap this up. 4 sections to go.
I really need to just concentrate on getting this done.

Albums Im working On
Norway, almost done
Sweden, have started kitting and about half done
DLP, have not even ordered photos yet
England, have not even ordered photos yet

There must be a way to make this room more functional. Has good furniture and a new paint job, done while we were in Hawaii. But somehow functional isnt happening.

I was able to buy albums to get my pages caught up, paper stacks on clearance and have enough embellies that I should be good.
I will need solids and adhesives and that should be it. Lets see how long that lasts.

I need to lose 20lbs. I am going to cruise again in 2013 in the Caribbean so I need to do something.
Work as much as possible
Make more time for DH, DD and DS and prepare myself and him for going to college.

I think thats it.
Good luck eveyone!
Disneyland, many many times, highlight, July 17, 2005

General Scrapping:
Pages: 209. The nine is to make up for what I was short this year. The rule with the pages though is 1/3 minimum must be my immediate family. I do a lot of gift albums and my family got pushed aside big time in 2011.

Albums I am Working on:
DH Alaska (I say this every year, maybe I'll actually do it )
WDW 2009
Sister’s Album
Wedding guest book (mine)
Wedding guest book (DSIL)
Assorted pages as I am inspired. I don’t generally scrap chronologically.

Deep clean one room a month. List already made, starting with office/scrap room in January.
Stay on top of printing and sorting pictures. I am so far behind it’s sad
Load the dishwasher before bed every night, run when necessary.

List shopping only. Clothes, food, scrap, craft, everything.
The only exception is crazy deals on food that I can store for later, budget allowing.

Adhesive and prints are always allowed.
Patterned paper: must have a specific use before purchase
Paper stacks: must have at least 3 specific uses before purchase
Tools/Carts: must have at least 3 specific uses before purchase
NO Christmas gift albums. I mean it this year...

Stick to a monthly budget
Exercise 4-6 time/week
Lose 10 pounds by February 14, 20 total by March 31.
Pay off 1 CC
Use coupons when I can
