Pages Finished Today - to complete an album

Today I finished these two pages (doesn't seem like a lot but managed to squeeze it into my schedule today and it completed an album)

Learned some new things on this page while using my cricut to cut out the stars and title.  Hope you enjoy.

Setting Goals...

I found this poem the other day in a book that I bought.  It hit me since just recently I shared with you that I have been setting some goals and really working at achieving them.  Let me share it with you.

I believe in setting goals really high.  Then, if you stumble, you still might be very good in the eyes of the others.  But, if you set them low, once you get there, you're going to be satisfied with what is probably not your best.  You're never going to push yourself to achieve even more.  That's what dream are about, aren't they?
- Derek Jeter
I think this says a lot.  Because this weekend I seem to be struggling, and am feeling a little down because I didn't obtain some of my goals.  However, I was a little under the weather and I still did get some stuff done.  So what I did to make myself feel a little better was I decided to write down the things I did accomplish.  That was very helpful and made me feel a little better.
I am happy to report that I am so close to finishing my daughters 2 year album volume 3.  I have only two pages left (actually one 2 page spread) to finish and I am so close to it being done but believe it or not with all the paper I own in this scrapbook room, I didn't have the sheet I need to finish this page.  I had to order it so as soon as it comes in I will complete that and be done.  What a huge accomplishment that will be.  Doing this journaling is tough all at once but I WILL do it!!
This weekend I worked on getting some objects cut out on my cricut for some signs a committee I am on is making for our schools MCA testing.  Tomorrow we will be meeting to put the signs together.  It will be fun and hopefully the kids will find them encouraging for the testing.
Well I am off to chill with hubby while watching Army Wives and then off to bed for it is work tomorrow.
Hopefully you in Minnesota are staying warm and dry this weekend.


Hello There -

I have to say that this is the year, yep I have set goals to paper, (phone actually) and this is the year I am going to reach them.

I have come up with a plan and bought a task/goal app for my phone and I have to say so far so good.

First of all, I should let you all know that I love scrapbooking, however, I tend to leave all my journaling for later, along with a lot of my titling.  It is just hard for me to stop the creative flow and journal the page.

I have finished many pages of my daughter's 2 year album volume 2 and volume 3but do not have all the journaling done on the pages.  I am so excited to report that over the weekend I finished journaling 28 pages which completed all the journaling in her volume 2 album and left only a two page spread to complete in order to complete the album.  That two page spread is just waiting for some paper to come in and then will be complete.

It was very hard though I have to admit to sit and journal for a whole weekend.  I set the goal though and I am very close to obtaining it.  I have another 20 pages to journal/title to have her two year albums caught up with journaling/titling.  Goal is to have them done by end of April.  If I stay on track like I am so far, I will reach this goal.

Next goal is to journal/title my Mom and Dad's 40th anniversary album in its entirety.  That will be another long weekend or two.

The goal moving forward is to perhaps acknowledge that I don't like to stop my creative flow but to not let the journaling build up.  Perhaps scrapbook like 6 or so pages and then allow time to journal them all before scrapbooking any more or to simply journal as I go.  Not sure how I will move forward but for sure will have to come up with something.

I will be sharing some of the pages once I get the camera back down in my scrapbook room and can get some pictures going.

If you are struggling with the journaling and have come up with some ideas to keep you moving forward please share them.  If you don't have any to share and are struggling I hope my story helps a little.  I do have to remind my self often, slow and steady and you will reach the end.  I wish sometimes it could be fast and steady though.

Thanks and tune again soon for more updates.

Good Night
