I'm a firm believer in reflection to learn from your mistakes. I'm also a list person. I make them all the time - a to-do list, a grocery list, a list of what lists to make...
So what better way to sum up my 2010 year? Yes... a list to reflect. A list to look back.
A list of the
The good and the bad.
The highs and the lows.
So that I will always remember 2010.
It felt good to use some older product I had laying around, just itching to be used. Inspired by the fun numbers from Sassafras Paper Whimsies (A mix of One Thru Twelve and Tailored Deck). The stickers are from October Afternoon. With the pre-made embellishments, this page came together relatively quickly.
I say "quickly" because it takes me a night to finish a card... a card that is only 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches (or 23.375 square inches). So for me to finish something that is 12 by 12 (or 144 square inches) in the same time it takes me to do 2 cards... I call that quick. :)
I held off on the journaling because I hate my own handwriting. Is that typical? I've been itching for a typewriter for ages but I'm not sure where I can find one cheaply.
I'm taking a step back from the crafty deadline madness and focusing my craftiness back on preserving my memories, remembering my life and making cards to make my friends happy. Yes, everyone else is making resolutions about helping others and I'm focusing it back on me. Selfish of me, I know. But sometimes you need to take a step back to keep your sanity.
Have a fabulous week and thanks for stopping by! Here's to 2011 and may it bring us all a little more laughter and a little more time with the important people in our lives. :)
