Goals and a Freebie!

So it's that time of year, the time for resolutions and goal setting. I've been thinking a lot about mine. This past year has been one of the most stressful years....scratch that, THE most stressful year of my life. While dealing with all that has happened to my family over the last year, I've seen myself get less and less organized, less and less healthy, eating more, sleeping less, and often forgetting to look on the bright side. I truly have so much to be thankful for, but for the first time in my life I have been concentrating more on all the bad stuff that has been happening. And that is so not me, I am usually the eternal optimist. So I want the old me back. Plus a bit more organized, that's never been one of my strong points. LOL So that being said, here are my goals for 2010, written for you all to I can't back down from them right?

1. I have 8 rooms in my house....I will organize two per week, that way every month, each room will be organized.
2. I will get 8 hours of sleep each night, whether I like it or not, LOL.
3. I will eat healthier, drink more water, take a daily multi vitamin.
4. I will excersise for half an hour, each day - more if I'm having fun, ha ha!
5. I will participate in Project 365, I love to scrap, and what a great reminder of the blessings I have.

I'm going to go out tomorrow and getting a journal, to keep my progress notes in, I'm calling 2010 - "Project Fiona". I will keep you all updated, wish me luck, LOL. What are your resolutions for this year? Want some word strips to get you started?

Check back on Friday for some awesome new stuff from ScrapMatters!

One Lonely Layout

Well, I only got to scrap one layout this! Christmas must be coming soon because I find myself crazy busy all of a sudden! LOL Want to see my one lonely layout? Here it is:

I've scrapped this picture before but I decided to redo it and I love it now! What made me decide to redo it you may ask.....well I'll tell you! Chelle has got a brand new thing going on over at ScrapMatters. Starting in January, she is going to have a class on journaling!! How cool is that? I can't wait for it to start, journaling is definitely something I struggle with, so many times I end up leaving it out. But I want my kids to look back at my pages and instead of just seeing a picture, I want them to see a story, an emotion, my voice. So I'm thinking this class is EXACTLY what I need.

And do you like the kit I used to scrap with? It's course material! Yup, you heard me! If you sign up for the class you get this awesome mega kit with it:

This is one of my favourite kits ever, it has felt, it has doodles, it has an amazing colour scheme, it's just awesome. But it's exclusive to the class, so only Chelles students get to have this kit! And the best part is, even though the class doesn't start 'til January, you get to have the kit to play with right now!

And don't forget that there are all kinds of crazy awesome Black Friday sales going on over at ScrapMatters, I'll be picking some stuff up for sure this weekend, I'm in scrapping withdrawl and there are some awesome new releases I want to play with! See them all right here.

Have a great weekend everyone!
