New Year Resolutions... Got Any?

Hi, everyone!
Did you see the Oregon game last night? Oh my gosh. What a great game.

With the New Year often times we make a list of things we want to accomplish in the New Year. Now my son will tell you if you want to change something in your life, don't wait until January 1st to do it. And while that is a good point, my husband will say sometimes what we need is a good starting place to motivate us which can be the beginning of a new year.

Do you have any New Year Resolutions?
Feel like sharing any if you do?
I'd love to read your comments with what you have in mind for 2015.

For me, I tend to make pretty general goals because I like success and being general or vague gives me lots of wiggle room. Maybe that's not the best way to do it. Just being honest here. However, I have made some pretty major decisions for 2015, and some not so serious ones. Curious? Here's my simple list:

  1. Memorize two Scriptures a month (48 in a year) with Beth Moore as a part of the Siesta Scripture Memory Team. See details about joining here....
  2. I'm going to start Scrapbooking again using a WEEKLY system and Project Life (as well as other similar pocket scrapbooking company supplies).
  3. I'm not going to push myself to make a new craft project and post it here to my blog every single day like I've done for many years. It's time to step back and enjoy other things in life instead of feeling like I HAVE to get a project and post up every single day. Don't freak out! I'll still be posting projects to my blog - and chatting with you (like this post), so don't forget to come visit me! You can sign up for email notifications if you want to be notified when a new post goes up here. See the column to the right. :)
  4. My Craft Closet is getting a major purge - some things it's just time to throw away - other things will be donated for others to enjoy.
  5. Participate in A Photo A Day as often as possible. This is just for fun. No pressure here if I miss half of them, but something fun to do now and then. Get info on how you can play along here...
So that's where I am on New Year Resolutions. 

Time for me to share my husband's humor with you. He just cracks me up. He is one of the funniest people I know. Things he says and does that are just "him." Yesterday he posted a few photos with a little blurb to his Facebook page. It was all in fun. Those who know him know it wasn't serious. I just HAVE to share them with you.

Please tell me that made you laugh! I love that man!
Hope you all have a fantastic day!

See you again soon.

  1. I'm lovin Tom and his life style. Thanks for the smile.

  2. Haha, fabulous, Happy New Year sweetie.

    Warm hugs

  3. I have seen your photo a day pics popping up, Janis. Love this idea. It's fun to see what other people are experiencing out there in the world.
    I made a few healthy goals, of course drop a few lbs and continue with my walking and cycling. Spending more time in my creative space...for fun. Buy less and share more. I also chose an inspirational word for the year which for me is going to be TODAY. Focusing on today and all the good things that TODAY holds.
    I will tell you that your hubby's little photos and captions just cracked me up. What good is life if we can't laugh a little. I look forward to seeing your scrapbooks and other creations as the year goes on. Happy 2015 to you!! *sorry for my lengthy post!*
