Challenges Completed!

WooHoo!!! I am so excited...

Earlier this month I wrote about my Personal Challenges for January. I am so happy to say I have completed all of them this month. It makes me feel so good to have challenged myself and have made my goals. I think making note of my challenges and having the support of other Cricut MB members was a great motivator to get them done. I plan on keeping the Personal Challenges thread going for February and hopefully longer. Now I have to go decide what I will challenge myself with next month! =~)

Disney album..DONE!!!!

I am so excited...I finally finished our Disney album from our trip last January. I stopped my regular chronological scrapping to get this album done while the memories of the trip were fresh. I don't remember when I started working on it, but I am glad it is done. Now I can move back to the chrono scrapping. I am about an year and a half behind on that!! LOL

Here are a few of my favorite LO's from the Disney album. Enjoy!!

On the Cricut MB is decided to bring back the Personal Challenge thread. It is a monthly thread where a MB member can post things they would like to accomplish for that month. Basically they are challenging themselves to get their projects done. The participants post their projects when they are completed and we all give each other a lot of encouragement. I am truly enjoying being a part of this thread.

My challenges for January are to:

*Organize my scrap space

*Design DD2's Valentines for school and scouts

*Make 10 cards

*Complete 10 LO's

I have completed the scrap space organization (at least I think it is pretty organized...DH would say something different) and have done 2 of the 10 LO's I wanted to complete; which means I am that much closer to finishing our Disney album!!

I also have an idea for DD's Valentines that I think will work well.

I am so excited about completing my challenges. I love the motivation doing this brings me.

What would you challenge yourself with?

A variety of cards

DH's aunt asked me to make some cards for her to give as gifts to her co-workers and others. Most are colored with the MCPT, others are just Cuttlebug embossing and Primas. There were so many I couldn't take individual pictures. Some of them I liked so much I hated to pass them on. LOL
Now I have to work on my own stash of cards. One of my goals for 2009 is to send out cards more often and to actually get birthday cards out on time. Those that know me know what a challenge that will be. =~)

Wine Glass charms

Ok, so I know it isn't scrap-related but I have really enjoyed learning jewelry making. For some Christmas gifts I made wine glass charms. It was a good starting project for jewelry making. I made so many for others I forgot to make some for myself!! LOL I will have to add that to my project list.
I apologize for the pictures...I have to get a better light for my scrap space.
