12 Projects Update... Again!

So last year, I decided my goals were simple. To finish up 12 projects in some state of progress. And I restated that goal again in January 2015. Then life really happened this last year! ;) And I committed to doing the What Will You Stamp? Challenge Blog, which took a lot of my creative/spare time. So I'm going to continue working on these this year, along with continuing to do the WWYS blog.

So I figure now is a good time to report on the progress I've made on that front...

The Quilting Projects
1.  Tom's Quilt  Haven't worked on it yet.... 
2.  Katie's Quilt  Ditto for this one...
3.  Rag Quilt for Me  And this one....
4.  Chevron Quilt for Living Room   And this one. I got distracted by other sewing projects.... lots of babies!

The Scrapbooks
1.  Disneyworld Scrapbook  I worked on this more and it's now about 80% complete.
2.  Vermont Scrapbook  DONE!
3.  Creighton's Baby Book  Still just need to pick pictures, print them and finish up.
4.  Abby's Baby Book Still just need to pick pictures, print them and finish up. I want to note that I actually also got the baby books ready for my new nephew and niece, Alex and Natalie! Their books are also at the same stage as Creighton and Abby's baby books :)

The Photo Books
1.  Photo Books for 2001-2013 2015 I still want to do this... just a matter of making the time to do it... and now I want to go through 2015!
2.  Photo Book for Our Wedding  DONE!!! Along with one of all of our engagement photos. The honeymoon book is still on the list too!

Looking at the list I have definitely recommitted myself to finishing these projects... again. And a few more... namely Brian's quilt, a baby quilt for our little guy, and a pile of baby quilts that need to be finished... all of which are in line ahead of the quilting projects listed above. They will all get done eventually!! It does feel good to look at this list and see some progress being made... and knowing that I also finished a lot of other things in the meantime!

Do you have any crafting goals for 2016?

My One Little Word for 2016... Present.
Art print available for purchase here.

Each year, I think about and pick a word to live by and this year my word is simple... present. As in be present. We have lots on the horizon this year and I just want to take things one day at a time... to be in the moment and not in the past or future!

My past words are... Simplify (2015), Breathe (2014), Adventure (2013), Enjoy (2012), Live (2011), Love (2010), and Create (2009).

Do you have a word to live by this year?

Card: A Happy Hello

Happy new year! I was in need of boosting my baby card stash, so today I have a baby card to share with you!

I used our fun Tin of Cards stamp set, along with a couple of other sets in my collection! This set is awesome because it has a lot of great sentiments that can be used with pretty much anything you have! :)

Fun, simple and perfect for the next little boy or girl baby shower gift I end up giving out. :)

Now head on over to check out all the fantastic projects this week from the What Will You Stamp? design team.... you won't want to miss seeing all the creative ideas using this great stamp set! :)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that 2016 has lots of good things in store for all of you!
