Scrappy goals and More Calendar Cuties

I have three more calendar pages to share with you all, but first I want to get my scrappy goals for 2009 out there. Maybe if I post them in cyber space, they'll be more motivating for me. So here is what I hope to do in 2009:

1. Spend one nap time a week scrapbooking.

2. Get caught up with printing off my pictures. (I've been working on this for awhile. 50 free prints a month from helps, but I still plan on using half of my scrapbooking budget a month to getting pictures printed off. I have A LOT of pictures to print off...I haven't printed off any for my youngest and I'm caught up through June of 2008 with the older two. I don't even want to think about family or vacation pictures.)

3. Finish through January 1, 2009, of all three of my kids' albums. (I have through June 2007 done for my son and December of 2007 for my middle daughter, nothing for the youngest. This is a lofty goal, but luckily I am usually a speedy scrapper and I will have a couple of opportunities this year to spend 2 to 3 days just scrapping, which means lots of pages done. I know a lot of people don't do chronological and almost kind of frown upon it, but I can't scrap any other way, I want to have all my pages for a certain time period done and then set it aside to admire.)

4. Send cards for all birthdays and anniversaries in 2009.

5. Finish my scrap room set up and organization. (This involves figuring out a configuration for and putting up wall shelves in the corner of my space. I'm hoping to get this done in March.)

6. Get all my layouts into scrapbooks. (This is a daunting task, just because I don't like doing this. I would rather spend my scrapping money on supplies to make more layouts and my scrapping time actually scrapping. I probably have over 100 layouts not in scrapbooks right now....hey at least some of them are in page protectors!)

7. Do one crop a month, either here at home or out with my mom or sister-in-law.

8. Do more daily journaling about things that the kids say or do and who they are. (I need to get out a notebook and just write down those things that the kids say or do that crack me up, warm my heart or make me roll my eyes. I really want to remember their quirks and sweet moments in my scrapbooks.)

Now on to the calendar!

March: cardstock by Archivers, patterned paper by American Crafts, can't remember anything else. :)

April: cardstock by Archiver's, chipboard letters by Heidi Grace, flowers by Making Memories, butterfly by DCWV and I can't remember who makes the rain drops.

May: paper, word stickers, chipboard word by K&Company, felt flourish by Fancy Pants, flowers, buttons and bracket by Making Memories.

2009 Calendar

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are ready to get back into crafting. I've been working on a cross stitch birth record for a nephew that is due in April and I spent a large part of yesterday in my scrap space creating 10 layouts for my middle daughter's scrapbook. I'll try to post those eventually....I still have a lot from the holiday gift giving to share.

I made my parents a calendar of pictures of the kiddos for Christmas this year. I did it for them two years ago too, when it was just my oldest. I'll post the calendar in parts and September will not be posted because it features naked baby butts.

Cover page: All papers KI Memories, numbers are American Crafts Thickers

January: White Cardstock is Archiver's, Blue patterned paper is American Crafts.

February: Pink Cardstock is Archiver's, patterned paper is American Crafts, Large Flower is Bo Bunny, Green chipboard embellishment is K&Company Amy Butler and buttons are Making Memories and Stampin' Up.
