This Year I will .....

I've set myself some goals .... If I don't, I tend to faff and time just runs away from me. Now I'm not saying this is going to stop me faffing and personally, I think that if Faffing were a sport, I'd have won the gold medal for it.

Its a work in progress plan, and I'm also hoping that I'll be adding to it; but I thought if I at least share my goals with you, it may somehow keep me on track.

So right ... here we go, oh and I apologize now, its a wordy post;

Creative Plans 

Try and keep up to date on PL ; longest to be behind … 2 weeks
Scrap Italy and Birthday album
Silver Anniversary album
SCRAP MORE ; and scrap older photos ... don't beat yourself up with rushing or being up to date
Organize my desk for house/planner etc.
Quilt and hexis
Make at least 4 cards ready for birthdays/anniversary a month
Get planner organized
Check out my classes on Big Picture
Sort out my Pinterest boards
Have a “crop” bag at the ready
Get some kits together to be able to scrap whenever
Get inspiration book organised 
Send photos to print from Photobox
Sort out a Project Life area
Sew more – complete dressmaking projects and also Sewing projects for our home
Do a quilt square a month

Those were my creative hopes for 2015; now onto what I'd like to get into the routine of sharing on my blog;

Blogging Plans

Project Life spread
Scrapbooking share - try and join in with a few more challenges
Little House updates
How I'm getting on with this being my year of de-cluttering and organisation
Sewing projects/Quilting ventures 

Now each month I'm hoping to do some decluttering and sorting out of our home. These will often go into the next month, and the one after that, no doubt. But again ... I hope to share my plan for that month with you all at the start of each month, as a way of also keeping me on track.

Right, I think I'll leave it there as yes, I've faffed with this post for too long lol. 

While writing this Mr Postman knocked on the door and handed me a parcel from Studio Calico ... and the gorgeousness inside has made me very happy ... So, that's another tick for one of my lists ... get my planner organised.
