crafting goals

I just spent some time looking over my 2008 crafting goals. I had planned for each month a certain number of layouts to complete. I kept a tally of layouts and cards that I finished. I am pleased to say that I surpassed my goal for the year of 122 layouts. I actually created 174 scrapbook pages! Woo hoo! It was so cool to see my progress each month. I didn't count the total until just now and I am really surprised. I am currently working on a plan for this year. I also made 177 cards (100 of which were my Christmas cards, that was kind of a mass production operation, but I feel like it still counts!). I made 13 mini albums and I premade 27 pages for Tanner's baby scrapbook. Wow, I still can't believe I did it! Having it all written out and planned really helped me stay on track and not feel bad if some months I didn't get to craft as much as others. I kept the list right on my desk so I could tally as I finished each project making it easy to do. My word of the year last year was "simplify" this year's word is "enjoy." I want to make sure I am enjoying everything, not rushing to get things done or feeling obligated to do things I don't want to do. I am going to go enjoy reading my crafting notes from last year... 174 pages! Yes!

WOW! Congratulations. How did you know what to put on your list? I think I did like 4 pages all year-grr! I need some direction, and an organized place to craft. Hope my new books arrive soon.
