Crafty Goal Monthly Report // March 201711:00:00 AM
Hello my crafty friends! March has been an absolute whirlwind of fun and a lot of work. Although it isn't completely over, I thought that now would be a great time to give you guys another monthly update. As I said in my original post about this series, these are so supposed to help keep me on track and inspire you all to pursue your goals! So, I hope you enjoy this monthly update and let's get started.
This goal has not made much progress from last month. I am visiting home currently and perhaps we can make some forward movement on finding places for my albums to live. I would estimate that I need room to house ten albums, at least ideally I would like to reach that number. Luckily, I don't have them all chock full yet, so there's room to grow. I do have to put my layouts that I have created this year away still, but maybe next month.
2) Complete 2 travel albums
I haven't had a chance to work on many projects this month, especially my travel albums. In addition, to the two travel albums I wanted to get done this year, we just took another vacation. While I don't plan on scrapbooking that trip this year, I am planning ahead on what album sized I would like to do (probably 6x8 or 9x12) and I'm already creating a plan to print the photos. So, there's a tiny bit of progress this month.
3) Follow at least 2 spending freezes
As I said last month, this goal is hard for me. I am now on two design teams and I do have to purchase items to showcase, so this isn't going as planned, but I have been limiting what I spend at Michael's and JoAnn's when I get an urge to shop. I'm also thinking I've giving my stash a little refresh by doing a purge (even though I just did a small purge in January). Out with the old and in with the new as they say.
4) Create more cards and have an organizational system for them
Another month and another card goal. I did make quite a few cards this month, but not as many as I wanted. I missed Saint Patrick's Day, so I might go back and create some for that holiday for next year. Up next is Easter, and I would love to make a bunch of notecards for my friends and family with a fun spring theme. Luckily, one of my design team duties over at Scrapbook Blessings Club is a monthly challenge that I like to apply to cards. I created 8 cards this month and I loved a lot of them! I have not made any progress on my organizational process though, still working on ideas for that. If you have a system that works for me, please let me know!
That's the summary of my goal update for this month! I hope you enjoyed reading about my struggles and successes. It's always fun to look back upon too! If you would like to see what I created this month watch my YouTube channel for a wrap up video for March. Thanks for stopping by!
