Well it's not even the new year yet and I am already starting to plan out new projects! One of the things that I will be working on right away on January 1st is a mini album all about the things that go on in my life in the month of January. Now I've done swaps on Swap-bot where you journal everyday for a whole month but I have never done a mini every day for a month. I got this idea from Doreen who made a similar album for December. Click HERE to check it out. Anyways, I thought it was so cool I decided I wanted to do one for December and that we could do it together so that's the plan. Because I'm up in Williston visiting Josh over my Christmas break, I decided to get started on the design and even helped myself out by purchasing an already pre-assembled album. It's tough crafting up here because I'm not in my usual space and there's only so much of my stuff I could bring with me! One other thing that I decided to do with this album, which I've never done before, is limit myself to the supplies I'm using. WHAT?! AM I OUT OF MY MIND?! Here's my thinking: I am only going to use products that are blue(any shade), white or silver in color and I HAVE to use majority of the stuff I already have. No buying new stuff until the old stuff is gone. Sure I can say that now because I bought some stuff for this album on Thursday...hahaha. Okay but to give me some credit the only things I bought was some paper and the actual album. I'm really looking forward to this album and can't wait to see what Doreen and I come up with at the end of the month.
Okay another thing I should probably give a little update about is this contest I talked about earlier this month. The details are still in the works but pretty much all of what I said in my last post will be the rules but I will elaborate in a post later this week. As far as prizes, this is what I'm thinking. A set of greeting cards (various for all seasons), a set gift tags (again various holidays), an altered comp book, and...hmmm....maybe I'll make one BIG prize as a secret! The goal here for me is just to get more exposure for my blog (no I did not mean it that way!) and get a few more followers. So even if I just get 10 or even 20 more followers that would be worth it to me. So I will work out the details and then I will make this topic my first post for the new year.
As a side note, I know this post is super boring with no pictures. I actually took a bunch and realized that Josh's computer, the one I'm working on, doesn't have an SD card reader like mine does which is sitting next to me with a dead battery and the power cord is four hours away. What did I say about not being able to bring...or should I say remember everything? Well, I guess this is all I have to say in 2010. I hope your year brought you many blessings and I'll see (really? see?) you all in 2011! Until then, Happy Scrappin' and MERRY CHRISTMAS! SB
