It's Almost a New Year....

Well it's almost the start of a new year. How did this year go as far as resolutions go. Well lets see.
Resolutions 2007:
1.Lose 30 pounds.... Ok I started out really good. I went to the gym 5 days a week for the first 6 months then I just petered out. There was never any one there in the mornings when I got there. And it's really creepy at 4 am when your alone at the gym. Ok that's no excuse, I admit it I just got lazy, but I did still lose 10 pounds. I know it's not 30, but I guess I will add that to this years resolutions.

2.Save $1200.... Yippie I did it even with all the great gifts I bought my hubby for Christmas.

3. Take a new picture every week.... Never happened!

4. Scrapbook more pictures.... I did finish up my Mexico Vacation album. But I have a whole bunch more to work on. Add to list years list.

5. Back up my files once a month... Definitely NEVER happened!! I'm working on that right now. I had to go to the store to buy more CD's.

6.Buy 2 Christmas presents a month.... Yes I did this and I highly recommend it for every one. Once a month while I was out shopping I would look for a present for one of my girls and one other person. I got got everybody on my list something really good and it cost me less money because I wasn't rushed to buy something so I could get it on sale. Like the Columbia fleece jackets I picked up for under $20 for the boys. Those thing are expensive! One thing I did forget though was the wrapping paper so I could wrap them as I went. I went out and bought some yesterday on clearance for this years presents.

I'll add Resolutions for 2008 tomorrow. I need to think on it a bit.

Here is a card I made for my friend Sue's Christmas Birthday.

This is a gorgeous card! I'll be with you on the losing 30 pounds this year and I totally agree the gym is creepy that early in morning.

Beautiful card Heather! Thanks for sharing all your resolutions, I don't think I even made any last year! I never do them anyway!! Happy New Year! :)

Beautiful card! Good for you that you accomplished some of your list. I have set goals for myself this year on a scrapbook page. It may be easier for me to meet goals than keep resolutions - and I intend to hold myself accountable to future generations, so it will be an added impetus to accomplish them.
Blessings!
