New Year's Resolutions...



Every year I make them and I usually have given up by mid January. However I am going to start a few new ones just to keep me on my toes...This LO was inspired by the talented EVA over on Scrapwest blog this week. If you would like to take her free class pop over and have a look!

So for the record, here's mine for 2008...

1. Drink 6 glasses of water a day - I know according to the World Health Organisation or something equally as informative, that you are supposed to drink 8 glasses. However, I have a new plan-I have a small cupcake tray which has 6 circular slots so I have started to put a glass in the top circle when I get up and drink a glass and then all I have to do is work my way through the 6 circles. Hey 6 is better than none right??? According to health experts I can look forward to losing 2 stone, extending my life and developing dewey line free facial skin of a 20 year old over the coming year!

2. Walk a mile a day - that's the one that normally gets chucked out in the first week of January. Will have a go - no promises.

3. Don't spend beyond my means - eh yeh right.. Anyone who knows me well will know that's a bit ambitious to say the least buy I will try - honest! I only use 10% of the worldly possessions so I don't need any more at this point in time...well apart from a couple of Cricut Expression carts and a nice pair of leather tan knee high boots. A girl can dream...

4. See more of my friends - have been good at that over Christmas so that's a good possibility of being a successful one!

5. Use up my craft stash - impossible at this stage to use it all in my own lifetime but I do plan on putting a dent in it - knocking out 5 LO's a week (...X 52 weeks..em that's 260 LO's for 2008 - what a challenge!).

6. Sit on the floor and play with my kids more - instead of finding exuses to do boring housework or other non essential stuff. These years are not here forever - and I need reminding of that sometimes...


So with this in mind - here's something lovely I found over on Scrapdolly's blog from utube.. very apt for the New Year. So what's yours then...?

I love the Resolutions LO and what you've written! Best of luck, I think I'll do the 6-8 glasses a day too, sounds magic :)

Love your take on Eva's class. I could pretty much just copy your resolutions for my own!
Happy New Year!
