A new year always brings plenty of excitement, and add in the resolution to change & make this year better– I’m ready to use this energy to kick start catching up on projects and start a few new ones. Today I want to share 14 projects I’m putting on my list, to strive for a fun, creative new year
__ a 2013 year in review layout– I’m thinking an infographic feel, & if I love it I think I’m going to use a similar concept on my monthly Project Life dividers.
__ states traveled layout– an incredible map with trip details & moments of where I went last year, I got to travel quite a bit!
__ Week in the Life– in past years, I’ve done this in a smaller scale, typically adding it into my Project Life. This year, with Caleb being a bit older, I’m hoping to do a project of a week in HIS point of view. He loves to take his own pictures [and at his age is NOT so thrilled when I take them] so I think this will be a really fun way to get him involved and see our lives from a different angle!
__ birthday bucket list– this one may become a mini album, but we’ll see where it leads closer to!
__ sending more cards! I am ALL about getting happy mail, but seldom ever do I send or receive any, which ends now. This year, I WILL send out more cards & notes, so if I have your addy be warned LOL
__ France– I went with high school TEN years ago, and with my reunion this year & realizing I’ve still barely ever scrapped any of the photos, I’ve decided to get them in an album! I may end up using just some sort of pocketed page system & adding all the memorabilia, but it WILL happen!
__ resolutions page– this one has already been started, and I’m already in love!
__ Project Life 2014– While I know I already have goals set in mind for PL, it makes the list because I really do want to focus on finishing the entire year in a timely fashion AND share it!
__ Mini Book Mondays– this will be a blog feature here, and also hopefully an inspiration to myself to get all those minis finished that I wanted to do over the years, or while I’m on a trip and actually FINISH them. Sometimes I’m terrible at not completing them and I’m really hoping to focus on this!
__ One Little Word: SELF– the more I see what others do, the more inspired I am. Do I make a mini? I know I’m incorporating bits & pieces into my PL as well, & I want to do some pages as well…. so this one’ll be another that I have to think about more!
__ Share Stampin Up! — In the past, I was mostly just a demo who did it for the discount, who wanted to share a little bit when something was really awesome, but this year, I want to do MORE. The new catalogs are stunning and so trendy, and I am thrilled to be teaching classes from home and really hoping to show that here as well. These products are just too cute not to pass on! If you’re interested in checking out what’s new, head on over to my site, http://shay_tibbs.stampinup.net and watch for a weekly SU post on Wednesdays!
__ pages for Caleb– I feel like there are soooo many incredible products for boys now, that I KNOW I need to catch up Caleb’s albums. I don’t want to be that mom that hits senior year and has to knock out 18 years of pages lol
__ December Daily– I am SO sad about choosing to forgo this project in 2013, & so this year I’m making it a priority. I WILL participate, it has always been one of my favorites and I really missed it this past holiday season!
__ Family History– My grandpa died early last year, and I SO wish we had recorded more of his memories before he passed. So I want to try and record those moments with other family members before it’s too late.
What projects do you plan on doing in 2014? Any crafty goals?
