Have any New Years Resolutions? trying to get on the health bandwagon (I usually don't do this for new years but it is necessary this year). As for scrapping this year, I want to do at least one LO, card or other project per week. I don't spend enough time doing what I love.
What's going on this month for you? Going to Orlando to visit BIL and SIL at the end of the month
What are your scrapping goals for this month? start scrapping again Lol All my scrapping was put on hold from before Thanksgiving until Christmas for all the gifts I made.
Did you meet your scrapping goals last month? can't remember what they were...I was busy with gifts.
Other projects besides scrapbooking? my best friend's mom lent me her Crocheting patterns book (and friend gave me a M's gift card for yarn), since I was admiring my friend's zig zag afghan and mentioned I don't have a good zig zag pattern. So eventually, I would like to start on that...but for now, I need to focus on getting my scrapping back on track, and I want to play with my new carts I got for Christmas!
Favorite layout and/or card from December: I will have to get back to this...

DH/SO: DH
Kids(ages): Caleb (7 in March), Anna (5 in Feb), Katie (23 months) and Baby J (TBD)
Have any New Years Resolutions? I resolved to resolve nothing until after Baby J was here. LOL
What's going on this month for you? I'm full term and expecting to go at any moment (but hoping I make it past the 19th)
What are your scrapping goals for this month? Try to start birth announcements, stick the invite information inside the Baptism Invites
Did you meet your scrapping goals last month? Didn't set any officially, but no, I didn't since I didn't get Christmas Cards out for the Swap here (which is why ya'll will be getting birth announcements instead.) Smile
Other projects besides scrapbooking? Mostly just trying to stay sane while being partially bedrested and having to have my feet up all the time, not getting to leave the house except for doctor's appts, etc. ETA: Well, now more restrictive bedrest, and a doctor saying I'm borderline at the point where he's going to call medical necessity to take the baby early, and if I change my mind, he'll induce me at any point. Darn pre-e.
