Welcome 2014 and a New Crafty Goal

It's the first day of 2014 and I'm very excited for the New Year.  I don't think I am much different from other folks that I get excited, make resolutions and then dwindle in my enthusiasm.  So my goal for this year works for my personal and crafty life.  I am going to be on time.  I want to be done with the Late Louie version of myself.  So I played along with the Ways To Use It challenge hostessed by Michelle today.  It's all about making resolutions and then taking the first step to keep them.  For me, I finished my sample card, got it posted for Michelle, got it uploaded on Splitcoaststampers and now I am blogging about it here! 
I can't recall what my resolutions from last year were...definitely a sign of a poor resolution keeper!  Better organization may have been one of my goals as I know that organization is always something I struggle to maintain.  My craft room in particular is huge challenge.  I have been making headway today as I am taking my mother's advice.  She suggested that I focus on one wall at a time.  A pleasant result of trying it her way is that I was able to clear out 4 or 5 boxes from the upstairs hallway and that will make my husband happy.  I have also been working with a Declutter Calendar for the last couple of years and I am making progress with it too.
Thanks for stopping by!  Happy New Year!

Love how you used the papers and created the pattern. Yeah for your goal too :) I have clutter issues too and am working on a huge house purge over the course of the year. So clink of glasses to us as we move forward in that area :)
