in other words...
Oh My Goodness Gracious!

I have spend a tad over 2 hours looking at a bunch or You Tube videos and checked 
website after website about 
Home Organizing and 
the Home Binder type system.

I am in the process of making a
Home Binder
for my household.
The thing about me, and I have said this before about
my over zealous type personality that I have.
Basically I get obsessed with certain things that I like doing (or have a passion to do)
and I go "hog wild"
with it.
I even get to the point that I can't sleep at night thinking about all the things I want to accomplish.
BUT, I am a planner/sketcher/list maker.
I do more of all the prep work , way more than I need to, before I 
even get started.
Of course, all with good intentions!

These are some of the things lately that I have been "hog wild" about:

1) Blogging:
I got my blogs started, but, as usual, I spent more time with the techie part
of having a blog than the blog writing.
It is a work in progress, and something I think
about everyday.
My goal : Write more often and have fun with it.

2) Crafting/paper crafts.  
Now, I have done a few tags and ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) and even did 
a mini album Recipe Page, ableit, all for swaps. 
BUT, I have watched hours and hours 
of You Tube videos about flower making, mini album tutorials, card making,
inking and stamping! I should be an expert by now!
Now....I just have to actually get my paper crafting underway.
My goal: Start with the first project I have a passion to complete , 
make it for my home and have fun with it!

 3) Home Binder
I have had my own planner book for the last two years
and have also had a financial binder for these two years also,
but I want a little more from this menial system I had been using.
My goal: Make the binder user (me) friendly and start my New Year with it!

So, all reasonable goals!
Y'all can check back with me
to see how I fair.

Everyone take care
and have yourselves
some magnificent holidays!

Craft. ish stuff

I don't know about anyone else, but I have been swamped doing craft items for several swaps.
I have yet to do anything for my family, but I am done with swap projects as of today. 
I am so happy to have learned so much while creating so many things for these swaps, 
albeit a lot of trial and error. 

I have been scouring You Tube for 
a whole lot of inspiration to 
make my first ever mini album.
I will attempt to do a Christmas one.
I will also be trying to get a few gift minis done, but 
with being such a newbie, I hope it doesn't take me into the 
wee hours of the night every night to get 
these things done. 
I will not worry if I don't get anything done, cause everything I 
will try and make will still be good to give later.

Well... off to watch me some football! Woohoo!
