Some of you who have read my blog for a while will know that I love making new year’s resolutions and setting goals for myself. A few years ago I did an online class: How to achieve your goals and live the life you love with Aby Garvey at www.simplify101.com. I still chat on the forum daily with the same dozen or so participants, who have become firm friends. We set ourselves annual goals, but then break them down month by month.
This year I started with my ‘One Little Word’ (an idea from www.aliedwards.com), which is CREATE. I have set goals for a creating a healthy lifestyle, creating a comfortable and welcoming home and we are in the process of planning some very exciting travel later in the year. I would dearly like to do more craft this year, and schedule crafting time into my life on a weekly basis.
Aby has written 2 inspiring blog posts here and here about setting 13 goals in 2013. This got me thinking, what 13 goals could I set myself for 2013? Bearing in mind my crafting goal, I have decided to use this idea to set myself crafting goals for each month of the year. I have lots of ideas (far more than 13 actually!) and will set one per month.
To kick it all off, I am making January a ‘finish-off’ month and will finish my 2012 album, and my Christmas album (JYC). Here are my December pages in my 2012 album, Project Life style:
Hope you like them! I am going to make 2013 album a bit simpler and make more 12 x 12 LOs for my other albums. In fact, I still have to organise my albums despite Shimelle’s class being several months ago (last May in fact!) So there’s a job I need to do. I am confused between Stacey Julian’s Library of Memories and annual albums. More about this later!
