I made this card the other day for the Unity Facebook Challenge using Unity's Dream Big Itty Bitty by Webster's Pages. My friend opened her own hair salon yesterday and this along with a bottle of red wine was her gift from me. So proud of her and wish her tons of success!!!!
Have you checked out the Unity Hip Hop yet today?! The oh-so-talented Design Team is sharing inspiring projects and some of them are also sharing their resolutions or crafty goals for this year.

I am doing Project Life this year and am going to try REALLY hard to keep up with it :) I also want to start scrapbooking more again rather than all cardmaking. It was my first love and I want to get back to it so my son can look back at his childhood and our family life when he grows up! I plan on incorporating my Unity stamps into my PL album as well as my regular scrapbook pages to make the most out of my stash!

In my personal life, I have a weight loss goal of 60 pounds total. I am already almost 1/3 of the way there. I started at the beginning of December and am down 16.5 pounds so far. Today was my first day at my new gym :) YAY! More on my weight loss here if you are interested!

I also want to "Simplify" in all aspects of my life. I'm still figuring out all I mean by that, but mostly I want to de-clutter and take the stress out of my everyday. I have realized recently that all of the "stuff" I have really just gets in the way of me enjoying my life and my family, so I am working on that! (of course I will not be getting rid of my crafty "stuff", just streamlining and working on better organizing solutions and maybe letting go of some really OLD stuff that I never use :)

What are your goals for the year?!

Have a great Thursday!
