This month at self portrait challenge: photograph your resolutions. (Go there to see more.)
Last year one of the few formal resolutions/goals I made at the beginning of the year was to do 120 scrapbook pages.
It feels ridiculously good to be able to say that I met that goal. In fact, I did 130! (Makes up for the 50 out of 60 I finished in 2005.)
So, this year, I’m upping my goal (and also adding a few extra guidelines).
Scrapbook Page Goal for 2007: 183 pages (that’s half of 365), which is 15-16 pages per month. I’d like to have at least one month where I do 25+ pages (last year I had one month where I did 22, and two where I did 24, so I’d like to push past that for at least one month this year). For my purposes, a “page” is anything 6×6 or larger; in the case of slip-in photo pages, it depends on how much work I did on them (like on journaling cards, cropping, etc.), but for the most part a whole spread will count as one page.
The addendum: These 183 pages must be for us, our family, staying in our house. See of the 130 last year, I’d say more than half probably were in the gift albums for the great-grandparents. This is great, obviously; but I’d also like to finish some things for my own kids (and me!) to look at. (The only exception to this is the heritage album I’m working on, which will be included in the page count; technically it belongs to my father-in-law but by golly he IS going to will it to us, so I’ll count it.)
Do you have any scrapbooking goals this year? Or other creative goals? Or other goals, of any type?
