Happy New Year

So I am starting this new year post with my resolutions I have been promising :D 

1)  I promise to only buy one scrapbook kit a month.  And right now that is Scrapbook Deals 4 U 

2) I promise to use mega stash and to not buy new products until I have at least 50.00 saved up.  I will save up these funds by counting every layout I do as a dollar.  And will mostly concentrate those funds on more paper as I have more embellie stash then paper.  This does not include my ATG tape as I do need this to even do any pages.

Hmmm… I was thinking there was more but two was pretty big so really that is it.  I am working on a system so I only buy the paper I want in a collection then the whole thing.  Not sure if I am going to do it online or in Springfield at lss.

I am going to just post today the layouts I did a couple weeks ago and are not included in my dollar a layout resolution.

Also, I managed to rearrange and get my scrapbook room looking decent.  We decided to take the bulky pantry from our kitchen and use it in my scrapbooking room and the home made cabinet (that is well made) left by the last owners that was in the room and not really being used we moved to a different section of the basement which freed a lot of space.  here is the end results and I LOVE it.

(Here is a link to my post showing the before pics) 

It is amazing how just having a space you love makes you more creative and totally want to spend hours in your creative space.  I am itching to get down there today but have a ton of things to do.  (like put the tree away… ugh what a chore!)

I wanted to leave you all with my new do… I have never gotten my hair professionally colored and I love it.  I have been trying to grow my hair out and it is taking forever as it has been one disaster after another finding the perfect stylist.  Well I fully think I did!  And she is super sweet too.  Here is a picture of it… some people have said I look younger so I am down with that.  lol


PS sorry the pics are kind of dark. I left my camera at my folks so had to use the cell phone which is ok but hardly as nice. 

I hope all of you had an awesome safe New Years and even though mine didn’t turn out as I had planned it was still nice :D
