    Buy something to hold swap pieces, I can't stand the boxes everywhere anymore! still looking

    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.

    Pay off cc, we have one left and I will get it paid off by the end of the year.
    Spend more time with DH. If I can get him to come home!

    I will be adding to this for sure as the year progresses.

    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!

    Paper stacks: must have at least 3 specific uses before purchase
    Tools/Carts: must have at least 3 specific uses before purchase

    2012 Scrapbooking Goals

    52 pages for the year. That's one a week and almost twice as many as I did last year. If I do that many I should finish my 2005 Disney album and get started on 2007 and still get some general pages done.

    Album for DH for his 50th in September.

    I'd also like to update my Disney Scrapbooking blog on a more regular basis maybe once a week at least.
