Grandchildren Silhouette - and New Years Resolutions
So, New Years Resolution time, I think.
I fully intend to keep these realistic-if it involves giving ANYTHING up, I'm not going there.:)
Firstly, I think, is organising my time better -'doing' Christmas was a disaster this year. By nature I am a bit of a last minute person, and when life start throwing wobblies at you at that last minute- you're screwed!
So, at least two Christmas Cards a month this year. I usually do mainly all the same for work colleagues & other people, then a batch for close friends & family which are also pretty much alike. Why? I don't actually enjoy just running a 'production line'. The only creative bit is coming up with the idea- after that its just repetitive-so no batch making this year. I would also like the time to make some gifts this year- I saw so many lovely ideas on the blogs on the run-up to Christmas.
Secondly, is to sort/organise my craft stuff & room over the next few months. See, I'm being realistic already- normally I would say weeks, lol. I'm going to put what I know I haven't used in the last year or so into a box for later 'redistribution'. I've already done my ribbons, and my grandchildren went home the other day with a bag full of decorative scissors, and some decorative paper ribblers. The only scissors I have used in a couple of years are a deckle pair & a postage stamp cut pair- all the scissors have been replaced by the blades in my trimmer, and the ribblers have been superseded by the 'Bug.
Thirdly, I think, is to take part in more challenges, but this one is very heavily reliant on Resolution Number One- if that one holds, this one should be ok. This is where the whole House of Cards could come tumbling down:).
So really, my resolutions boil down to:
Organise my time
Organise my room and
Organise myself. Oh dear, I have a bad feeling about this already, lol.
Well, if you are not busy, share your resolutions with us all, at least then I won't feel so alone when I have an epic fail :):):)
