Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I can't believe it is already 2011!!  I was just remembering when the year 2000 came around and everyone was freaking out.  Remember?  People were buying supplies and thought the computers were going to crash and it was going to be chaos?!?  Lol!  The clock hit midnight and nothing happened ~ we all lived thru it! 

I was thinking that this year I wanted to make some resolutions for myself.  I usually don't bother because I never follow thru with them but I'm feeling extra motivated and positive about things.

1.  Blog more often - at least once a week.
2.  Spend $20 or less for our family dinners every night.
3.  Make a house cleaning schedule and stick with it.
4.  Use coupons more often.  Maybe at least one every time I grocery shop (minimum). 
5.  Art Journal at least once a week (hopefully a little each day at the very least). 

I think that is a good start.  I hope that next year when we approach 2012 I can come back to this post and say that I stuck to all five of my resolutions.  Wouldn't that be cool?? 

I signed up for two Art Journal adventures online.  I put the little button for each one at the right side of this page if you want to check them out.  I'm so excited and I think that being a part of a group with keep me motivated and inspired. 

I am in an art journal round robin right now.  Here is a picture of the pages I just finished for one of the group members.  I just love working in these journals. 
Today I started my own journal for 2011.  This is the first page:
I think I might go back down to my craft room and work in my art journal a bit more because I'm not sure I can handle all of the excitement at my house.  Here are a couple of pictures of what is going on at this very moment at my house (keep in mind it isn't even 8pm!!):

Have a wonderful New Years Eve and I'll blog again soon!!

  1. I just love the excitement going on at your house! I made resolutions this year also and am determined to do better at keeping them this year than I did last year. Art is on my list too. I found you through one of the art journalling groups you are participating in - journalling every day. It's January 3rd as I'm writing this, but I may join late. Sounds like fun!
