Happy New Year!

Time to reveal my crafting resolutions for 2013.  I am pleasantly surprised that I actually did pretty good with my 2012 resolutions.  Where I did not do good was with my goal to do more scrapbooking.  So my only real crafting resolution for 2013 is to scrapbook, scrapbook, scrapbook!

I am already back to work on my trip to the Grand Circle (Utah's National Parks and Monuments) - I took this trip in 2008!  And I sent several hundred photos off to Walgreens (50% off all photos sale) for printing from this past year and my summer trip to the Minnesota North Shore.  I decided I am going to do all my journaling digitally and print them out.  I hate, hate my handwriting.  I love seeing some of the beautiful PL layouts out there with hand journaling, but, believe me, my handwriting is absolutely awful.

I currently have lots of Project Life product that I bought last year; so all I need to do is dust it off.  But there are a couple of new things I am doing this year:

  • I am taking the Studio Calico Day by Day online class for tips, techniques and inspiration.  I am really excited about this.  The class starts today.  I already watched the two videos and am excited to apply some of the tips from both of them, especially the one about adding text to your photos by Catherine Davis.
  • I have ordered a Canon Selphy CP900 photo printer from Amazon with a gift card I got for Christmas. I normally prefer to send out my photos for printing because of the cost.  I live near a Walgreens that has good photo printing and I usually just wait until they have a good sale.  But I think I will like the Selphy for specialty prints, like when I want something immediately while working on a layout.  

Right now my craft table is covered with my Utah trip album and photos and other trip-related items.  Last night I worked on a plan for my title page that I am happy with.  I am really excited about getting back to doing some scrapbooking and I really like the Project Life products.

Well, that's it!  Let's see how it goes, shall we?  Now I'm off to Walgreens to pick up a few more photos!

I hope you all have a happy, wonderfully crafty new year!
