2017 Scrappy Goals

Hello friends! I am popping in here really quickly to share my 2017 scrappy goals with you. I did this a couple of years ago, and I really enjoyed being able to go back at the end of the year and see how much I had done. I realized that I never posted any goals last year and I kind of missed it, so I am getting this on here now so I don't forget.

My scrappy goals for 2017 are as follows:

  • Stay current on my 2017 Project Life album - really my plan for this is to have January done by the end of February, February done by the end of March, and so on. I know "me" and I know that I need to be a little bit behind. I'm not sure why, but it probably has something to do with stressing myself out to the point of not wanting to do it, if I put a weekly deadline on it. 

  • Finish up my 2015 Project Life album and start 2016 - Yep, I am still working on 2015, and I thought I had some weeks done in 2016, but nope, I haven't even started on it! I don't worry at all about being behind. I have my planners with a ton of information in them, and I am confident that one of these days I will get them done!

  • Finish Ada's First Year album - this was meant to be a first birthday gift...Ada just turned 3! It is time to get this album finished up!

  • Make at least one layout a month using older photos - I have so many photos of my kids when they were little that I still want to scrap. I am hoping if I make it a goal to make at least one layout a month, that it will be a good reminder for me to get it done!

  • Keep printed photos organized - I did really well in 2013, 2014, and 2015 of keeping my printed photos in order by week and month in photo boxes. 2016 I still need to get organized. So, I am going to make sure I start 2017 off right and keep them organized by week and month as I go. I will also be working on 2016, and then I will go back to my older photos and try to at least get them in the right years!

  • Get finished layouts into albums! - I need to find me a good album sale, because I am going to need quite a few in order to get all of my finished layouts into albums, but it is my goal to get it done this year.

  • Get my embellishments organized - I desperately need to get this done. I need them organized so I know where everything is at. I am tired of looking for hours for something I know I have and not being able to find it. This is the year to get it done!

  • Make up kits mixing my older stash with my newer stuff and use them! - I know this will help me out immensely when it comes time for me to sit down and scrap. If everything is all together in one kit so I am not searching for it...that will save me a lot of time!

  • Send out all those cards that I make throughout the year - I am thinking at least 2 cards per month, but I would really like to send out one a week...we will see!
That is it! I will revisit these at the end of the year, and hopefully will be able to say that I met most, if not all, of these goals!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!
