Happy New Year!

2009 begins.......

Of course I have been thinking of resolutions....... yes, weight, better habits, but mainly of stamping and scrapping. I did very, very little scrapbooking in 2008. Best of intentions, but no follow-through. 2009 WILL be different!

I pledge to stamp more for ME in 2009. That probably sounds funny-- you all know how much I do stamp! It seemed to me, though, that every time an exciting design sparked in my brain, it would have to wait until my "need-to-do" stamping got done. With better organization and not so much procrastination (hey, it is the New Year, I am supposed to dream BIG!), that should not happen so much.

Lastly, I pledge to stamp more for others. Friends and others from my church who are deployed. Friends who are not feeling their best, or going through a rough patch. Cards for friends with whom I have lost touch. Cards to say "thank you"-- for amazing special music at church. for providing a shoulder for me to lean on, for doing something nice for one of the kids. What I enjoy most about stamping is knowing I have tucked in a little love into every envelope. I need to do that more often!

What are your stamping resolutions for 2009?


  1. Julia, Congratulations on taking the first step to blogging your crafty ideas. I'd say you've already started to work on your New Year's resolutions. I look forward to reading and seeing more.

  2. Julia,
    This looks interesting--maybe a way to touch base through all this subbing! Happy New Year, and I too intend to stamp in a more meaningful and fulfilling effort this year! For fun and fulfillment!!
