Happy New Years - Scrappy Resolutions

What are your scrappy New Years resolutions?  We have spent several hours this past week discussing things like how we spend more time re-re-organizing our scrapbook supplies than scrapbooking, and feeling the need to purge our scrap-stash... only to make room for more!  And then there is the Gypsy, asking ourselves 'why did we buy this thing? was it only for the search option?', and wondering if we would ever use all those new Cricut cartridges we bought.  O'... and don't forget worrying about backing-up our back-up of photos.  Making more time to scrapbook was definitely on our personal resolutions lists, but we soon realized we needed to create another list named our 'scrappy resolutions' and wanted to share them with you.  Let us know what your scrappy resolutions are for 2011 and be entered in a random drawing to win a FREE crop for Feb. 19th.  We can't wait to read what made your list! 

1.   GET ORGANIZED... and stay organized!
2.   Purge... keep what I will use and consign the rest to make room for more!
3.   Master the Gypsy
4.   Journal on my layouts
5.   Make more time to scrapbook... the laundry can wait!
7.   Back up photos on a regular basis
8.   Take a photography class and REALLY learn how to use my camera
9.   Get Blog Savvy!
10. Introduce and USE one new Cricut cartridge a month

Contest ends Saturday 1/8/11.  Complete details about the contest can be found at

My scrappy resolutions are:
1)To tame the beast that is my crafting room, by making everything have a well labeled accessible place.
2)To quit buying things I don't need just because they are "cute".
3)To give or throw away the products I don't use or love.
4) To remember that just because I own a cricut does not mean I need to own all the cartridges too.
