2011 Scrapbooking Goals

After thinking about this post for a few days, I think I have my scrapbooking goals for 2011 in order. Here goes ...

1. Finish the Organize Your Stuff Challenge over at 2Peas in a Bucket
2. Complete the "12 Weeks To Better Photos" on the General Photography board at 2Peas in a Bucket
3. Jump into Becky Higgin's "Project Life" (my 2009 kit is called Project 365, but it's the same concept)
4. Participate in Patter Cross's "ABC Scripture Challenge"
5. Monthly participation in Shimelle Laine's "4x6 Photo Love" workshop at 2Peas
6. Fully engage in BPC's "Embrace Imperfection" workshop during the actual class (starts 2/10/11)
7. Finish BPC's "52 Card Pick Up" class (tons of techniques still to learn)
8. 2011 Christmas cards

Project 365 makes me nervous. I guess that's why I've put it off for two years. But this seems to be the perfect project to pair with learning the ins-and-outs of my new camera. Between the 12 week photo course, P365 and Shimelle's class, I'll be forced to get comfortable with my Rebel.

Now I'm printing-off this list, hanging it right at eye level at my desk, then going to add some class reminders to my Blackberry. For all my crafty friends, most of the classes/challenges listed above are FREE (# 1, 2, 4, 5 & 6). Come join me!

This an extremely ambitious goal list for me. Especially since it's only my paper crafting goals, and doesn't include any knitting projects. But the knitting is easier to just pick up and go, where the scrapping stuff, at least for me, needs to be planned. Any one want to share their list?

Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!
