During the year of 2012, I have several scrapbooking goals. First, I signed up for Your Story. Brilliant, which is a class taught by Linda Sattgast, my favorite scrapbooking teacher (Digital Scrapper/Scrappers Guide). As a later in life Mom, I want to make sure to share my story with my children while I still can.
Another goal is to organize all my photos and data on the Hopkins family, coordinate the various researchers of that family and start a plan for a book on our family history. Over the last several months I have been in contact with several distant cousins through my defunct blog, which has inspired me to start cleaning it up and organize it so that my cousins and I can be more efficient in our research as well as attract other cousins who are doing searches on their family names. I highly recommend this, as it has been a fun experience. I wouldn't put everything you know up there, just enough to share a little, my concern being that big companies glean your information and then sell it. So the plan is to share enough to be picked up in searches and then to share the rest privately.
In general, I need to organize my digital files - a process I began this fall when taking Linda Sattgast's organizing class. It's a LONG process. And I hope to begin organizing my paper photos as well.
Maybe, just maybe, I will get some family scrapbooking done as well. Designing is a Catch 22 for me - if I design, it's fun, I earn some spending money and I get to share with all of you. But, when I design, I don't have time to do my own scrapbooking. Hopefully this year I will find some balance.
That is a lot to accomplish for someone without a lot of spare time. If I reach 1/2 of my goals I will be happy.
How about you? Do you have any scrapbooking goals this year? To help you along, I have put most of my new kits and family tree kits on sale for the month of January. And some of my oldest kits I have listed for 50% off. I hope I can help you with your goal of getting some scrapbooking done!
Heritage Scrap also has a new section for SALES where you can browse by percentage off, for kits from all of the designers.
