New Year, New Me!

Happy New Year!





I have decided that I need a blog to post my thoughts, my aspirations, my goals, and my projects! These will include my cross-stitch and embroidery projects and my cardmaking and scrapbooking ones, as well as any goals I might have.


I hope to post about once a week to keep everything updated.


For this first post, I would like to outline my creative goals.



Weekly


Cross-stitch-work out a weekly rotation for my two SAL's, both by Papillon Creations and a couple WIP'S.


Scrapbooking-a layout a week to try and get caught up on all the pictures I take.


Monthly


Cross-Stitch-an ornament a month, and learn how to finish them.


Cardmaking- three cards every month, so I can keep up with birthdays and other events in the family.


I don't think that all this is too impossible to keep up with, but we will see.
