Here is my card today for KL Stampin n Scrappin. Ice cream is my favorite thing to eat! Though I don't eat it very often. As a child, I use to eat ice cream cones by themselves, lol. Last time I was home at my dad's, Emily informed me she had ice cream in the freezer. I said, oh yeah, what kind is it? She says, "it's the white kind", lol. Oh, kiddos. Gotta love the words of a 3 1/2 year old.

Now for the not so crafty part...you can skip to the next blog if you don't want to read. One of my favorite blogs that I read every day is The Simple Dollar. Trent, the guy who writes on there is working his way through eliminating debt and trying to live more frugally. He started a Book Club and we're currently reading Never Eat Alone. This book is about relationships and networking, not finance.
In one of the chapters, they say you should make a large goal for 3 years from now and then working backwards, making smaller goals each year, and each 90 days, to complete your larger one. With that, I've been putting my goals back into perspective and I've been thinking about goals for 2010 through 2012. I've completed 3 so far for 2009...so not too shabby. Going back to school is still on my long term list, but unfortunately that will come much later than sooner.
My goals for 2009
-Get a new house-Artwork published (I think I'm going to abandon this one for 2010)
-Be on more Design Teams
-Putting more effort into my photography skills (Learning Photoshop CS3 has been very helpful)
-Get a new camera (I need to pay off my car first)
-Scrap 26 layouts (I've done 4 so far...gotta work on this one, lol)-120 Christmas cards by Christmas 2009 (Will be completed on December 1st, 2009, wahoo!)-One mini album every quarter of the year (I've done none...but hope to do one for Ali Edward's December Daily)
-I want to be more knowledgeable on business politics (This applies to my day career)
With so much going on in my life right now, I've decided to step back from some of my commitments. By the end of the month, I will be done with all of my Design Teams, except for KL Stampin n Scrappin. Don't worry, I will still be here in blog land...I just feel like I need some time to do my own thing for a bit and get life in perspective.
Everyone have a great Monday! It's back to work for me...
