Another year of scrapbooking excuses!

Yep. I'm talking to me. LOL I have a great craft room…a wonderful blog with awesome designers and followers…and I barely have time to craft for myself. UGH! My own blog is dismally empty, because, let's face it, posts take time.

I found something that I think will help kick my butt a bit this year:  Fitting It All In

A great blog post series by Ashley with some sage advice and tough love.  You will not regret taking the time to read it (and participate it…she makes you think!!).

My question is:  How will YOU make more time for crafting this year?

My goals:
**Put together more kits (card, layout, Project life), so I am ready to go at a moments notice.
**Take advantage of my small blocks of time to get some things done.
**Spend some time getting my photos ready, printed and sorted to speed up my scrap time.
**Be intentional about what I want to make.  For example, I want to make cards each month for some of the kids in my family.  I want them to know Aunt "Bef" loves them from afar.

Let's see what we can do together!


  1. I am not a card maker but would like the idea of sending a monthly card to my grandson that lives quite far from me. Hope you will be posting your cards for kids, or links to design ideas.

  2. Great post for this time of the year. I agree that if you don't make the goals it won't happen, myself I need to be crafty with little blocks of time to. I wish you well with you strength to succeed

  3. I love this series and I absolutely LOVE Ashli!!! Her style and heart are truly inspiring.

  4. Thanks for this link! This looks exactly like something I could use.
