Paula Perry our kicked the year of for us all in the forum
with this fantastic 2010 New Year challenge that
has had me thinking and searching within, for a goal and
a resolution that I can keep….beyond the first month

I finally decided on this
            Think deeply, speak gently, love much,
              laugh a lot, Work hard, give freely,
                live well, be kind, dare to dream,
                    be confident, don’t judge,
              celebrate the moment & believe…

and now I just need a photo and to MAKE time to scrap…I am also stitching it into a wall
hanging, so that I will be reminded constantly, which is one of the big things with New
Years Resolutions keeping it in your face with a constant nudge to keep you on track.

So pop on into the forum and check it all out….

Michelle Winston plans on kicking us all into organization with her fantastic article
                                  Getting organised in 2010 with Michelle Winston
                                 Well the new year is upon us, and what better time to get yourself
                                 organised for all that scrapping in the months ahead ? This month,
                                 we will show you scrapbooking storage solutions from the simple to

                                 personal                      scrapping                    spaces.

                                 Let's face it, we'd rather spend our hard earned money on new
                                 supplies and stash... not storage, so for those of you watching the
                                 budget, here are some cheap and cheerful suggestions.
