New Year's Resolutions (and why this year will be different!)

I waffled back and forth about even thinking about New Year's resolutions, but in the end I decided that since my family and I were making changes anyway (the timing just happened to coincide with the new year), I may as well make it official. Here's two pages I scrapped about some of my 2012 resolutions (click each image for full credits):

(Created with Mscraps January 2012 store collab New Year's Resolutions)

(Created with Journal Your (he)Art Out 3: The Basics by Nancie Rowe Janitz and Fiddlette Designs - I love this page because I experimented with another of my 2012 resolutions - learning art journaling!)

What are your 2012 resolutions? Have you made any?

December Daily: The Final Post, Finally!!

Even though it's a few days late, I'm so proud of myself for actually finishing my December Daily! I have a pattern of getting super excited about a new project and letting it fizzle when I don't "feel" the same passion a few days later. I definitely hit that dry spell, but this time I pushed myself through it and continued to document our stories this month, even when I forgot to take pictures. Having most of the pages done in advance certainly helped! I'm considering using this format for other projects (baby album?) - setting up a bunch of coordinated pages using a template album ahead of time. Hmm... wheels are turning...

But for now, here's my final five December Daily pages! Thank you to those who have followed me on this blog journey (my family better still be reading these posts!), and I hope we'll have lots more fun journeys through writing and scrapbooking together in this new year. Have a happy and blessed 2012!
