Well...my life is about to change...my marriage of 26 years is ending, I just turned 50 But I WILL NOT let it get me down! I hope to dive into scrapbooking and I hope to do more of what makes me happy FOR ME!!!

Jenn said...

I will do more scrapbooking, I will work on improving my vocal skills, I will learn new things and be available for God to use me in people's lives. I will learn more about the person I am becoming.

Pandy said...

Like the poster before me, my marriage is also ending and I'm moving back to USA after living 10 years in Sweden with my Swedish husband. We are going to share custody of our 3-year-old which will be super hard and that prompts me to say, in 2009 I will be STRONG. I will move on with my life with grace and dignity and continue my pursuit of happiness. I will also continue scrapping as it is one huge source of happiness and contentment that I can never give up!!

Bonnie said...

I will really try to spend more time doing things I want to do for me. One of those is to do more scrapbooking. I also want to use my bind it all every month, I LOVE IT and want to think of new and exciting ways to incorporate it.

Joy said...

I will SURVIVE! I'm a single mom of a 17 year old girl.

Gail said...

I will try to do more things that help make life easier for the people I love. I made a monthly planner for my DH when the one he usually purchased couldn't fit the pencil he likes to use. I used the BIA I just received for Christmas so he can slip the pencil into the owire. He loves it!

Cindy said...

Being a brand new, first-time grandmother, I will gladly do more babysitting!

Tammy said...

In 2009 I want to focus on having fun instead of being bogged down with house stuff. I want to enjoy my 2 very young children. They are only young once!

Kelly said...

I will make more mini albums that contain things like greeting cards and my kids artwork that they insist I keep!

In 2009, I will start using more of my stash instead of just hoarding it, and make lots of use of my new BIA.

Lydia said...

I will take more time to pamper myself! I have taken the backseat for sometime now and always put my family first. I feel way older then I am and need a new fresh start.....And of course SCRAP SCRAP SCRAP!

Donalda said...

OH wow!!!!!!! This has been hard for me so far this year but am trying really really hard, I stopped smoking 2 1/2 months ago and have put on some weight (to much) so I went to the Dr which sent me to the Dietitian and I am trying so hard to eat less and eat healthy and not to pick up another cig. My children are so proud of me for quiting and it is a challenge everyday, but am doing it.
But for my art I am going to put more into my art when I do it like learning new things.
oh thanks for the chance at the cover all's. Have kept looking in the store here for them but no go yet.

Teresa said...

In 2009, I will be more organised and make more productive use of my time. Then I'll end up with more time to spend with my hobby ;)

In 2009 I will become a mother for the 2nd time. I will also make it a point to attempt to scrapbook more often, create more handmade cards and more mini albums.

renea said...

In 2009, I will finally buy a Bind-it-all! I have been eyeing them. In 2009, I will remember every that is good in my life and try not to let all the bad get me down. I will get a handle on my finances and try to get more out of debt. I will continue to tell my husband and children that I love them everyday. I will continue to tell my mom and sisters that I love them every day. I will do another 100+ layouts this year and finish an album about me so that when my time comes my children will know about me instead of just what they saw.

Alison said...

Try to speend more time with my kids instead of worrying about how the house looks ot what has to be done...

Too sum it up in 2009 I am going to focus on the more important things of life.

torpenhow07 said...

I want to do more crafting especially using my BIA and learning about how to use my brand new dreamkutz which will hopefully make things a lot easier.

I am determined to break into politics. I have complained for years and it is now time to do something to change the things I don't like. To work for the people! BTW - LOVE my Bind-It-All!

Sandy said...

In 2009 I will endeavor to use my Bind-it All along with my other room full of acquired stuff to make gifts for people, to use up some of this stuff. My goal is to stamp/scrap more and be less bored, which in turn makes me buy more and more stuff. I know, sounds like you too, doesn't it!!!! UGH.....DOUBLE UGH UGH!!

Lisa said...

I will be scrapbooking more, for the past 2 years, I've managed to only do 37 LOs ....my goal for this year is 100.

I am also overhauling our finances and looking for ways to save more money. I've already started and it is giving me quite the rush.

Cori S said...

Gloria Gomez said...

I will live a healtier life, spend more time with my family and friends, and take tons more pictures to scrap!

Margo said...

I will craft more than I did in 2008! But I will try to use some of my supplies that I am "collecting" instead of buying too much more.

Eveline said...

I hope to do more scrapbook pages this year. And I will use up my stash of paper instead of buying more every time I go into a scrapbook store. And I also got my lovely pink bind-it-all for my birthday so I will make some projects with it. Have loads of ideas floating around in my head.
Eveline.

Dria said...

In 2009 I will do my best not to put things off :)

Jean said...

This is the year I will try to step out of my box and scrap more freely!! I vow to use more ink and paints, to hand journal and to scrap without lines!!

Sonja said...

I will survive. In September, I lost my most beloved husband. In November, I lost my dog. In December I had to give up our fost-adopt twins who were scheduled for adoption in February. I have gone from being a member of a family to being alone with my old beagle. Everyone tells me I have to keep busy. So I will be starting a pottery class next week, taking a hat making workshop probably in the spring, and attending a week-long photography class in Minnesota this summer. I just want to make it through my first year without him.

Cindy said...

In 2009...

I HAVE been admitted to hospital for the first time so I WILL need followup appointments to get myself back to good health.

I WILL have to move house for the 30-somthing time (due to marital separation).

I WILL devote more time to ME, so I WILL scrap more, go out more, do more of what I want to do.

Mariah said...

My life is changing for good this year. I'm happier now than I've been in over 5 years. I'm working out and working towards losing those pounds and I'm not stopping yet. This year, I am in it to win it, and I'm not backing down!

Shannon said...

There are a lot of things that everyone thinks about when we think about new year resolutions. One of a few that I have is to spend more time on my scrapbooking. I have so much to catch up on that don't think there is such a thing as caught up. ;0)

duffercat said...

I will try to get myself more organized so I can actually DO some more scrapbooking. I will try to scrap one layout a week. I will try to make mini albums for 2009 Christmas gifts.

I WILL conquer my "fear" of using my BIA and I WILL make some everso beautiful things using all the inspiration from this site that I can find! LOL!

GothamGal said...

I am planning on doing more scrapbooking and making more time to write.
My bookgroup and I are also planning to release 1000 plus books at a local festival.
I can juggle, I just have to keep telling myself I can do that.

This year I will take more time out just for me! Time to relax, enjoy some peace and quiet, and time to destress... all while using my BIA of course!
Jenny

cmouse said...

In 2009 I will...prepare for retirement, play more with my scrapping/stamping toys, make many many items with my BIA as the ownership has ignited my creative juices.

KatieGirl said...

I plan on doing much more scrapbooking! I will use my Bind It All to create many more books and gifts this year. 2009 will be my best scrapping year yet!!

Samantha said...

I feel like a lot of people have already said this, but I plan to do less thinking about scrapbooking and more ACTUAL scrapbooking! I am loving mini albums and my DH just got me a Bind-it-All for Christmas! :-)

Rita Kegg said...

I hope to get my stamping area cleaned up and more organized. I do this all of the time but it just keeps getting messy on all of the horizontal areas ... I do not understand why! I love my BIA and use it a lot for my books and books to sell! Blessings

JessicaK said...

I *will* get more layouts done and finalized in an album. Layouts are harder than cards - they seem infinite. So goal - get down and get them done.

Nancy said...

This year I will definitely spend more time doing things that make me happy and less time doing things that I think will make other people happy.

Kathy said...

This year I will do more projects that are scrapbooking related. I have done layouts for so long and never have worked on projects. I have had my BIA for 2 years and NEVER used it until I started looking on this blog. :) I just looked at the "stepping out of the box" post and got another idea :)

jeanie nieva said...

i will do most of the stuff fo rmy wedding myself - invites, decors and favors. :)

Ilus said...

I really hope to learn more of my BIA during 2009 - and be kind to myself.

Gaye said...

I will try to do more scrapbook pages, more projects using my BIA and I will try to improve my photography skills

Angie said...

In 2009 I will use up some of my scrapbook stash. I am also going to be more deliberate about finding time to scrapbook. Losing some weight would be great too! (How much room do I have here to list all the things that I want to do?????)

Benga said...

I will save more money, and therefor shop wisely and keep in touch more with family and friends.

Judith said...

I promise I will use my bind-it-all more in 2009 to create projects that I didn't think I could accomplish

Judith said...

I will use my bind it all to create projects other than books such as calenders, picture frames, etc.

pigmentations said...

definitely start doing minibooks! and save up so I can buy my own pink BIA :)

rowee said...

I 2009 I will....
1. Save more, spend less.

purplesea said...

i will try to be more active in our church and be more serious in building my personal relationship with God. In scrapbooking, i will do more layouts ad be more productive because last year, scrapbooking took a back seat because the photography bug bit me.

Maria said...

In 2009 I will ENJOY LIFE!

charlottecornett said...

This year I will create more books to encourage people during these rough times. God has blessed me with a Wonderful family and I want to be a blessing to everyone I come in contact with.

kim's kreations said...

In 2009 I will make a real effort to make more items to sell locally, as all of my stuff that I made before Xmas sold in 3 days and I made $400. I really need this extra income as my DH lost his job last October and the job market is pretty grim. I love doing this stuff so I would be right in my element.

Amber Rae said...

This year, I am going to try to buy less and USE more!!!

jonaks said...

this year, I will try to be more discipline with my diet and exercise. i want to lose weight and be physically fit.
