Blogging for scrapbookers.... prompt 6

This prompt is all about setting goals. Wow what a great prompt! There are always goals to set, plans to be made, wishes and dreams to fufill!

For today I am going to share my year 2011 phrase which is 'SORT OUT' it really covers a multitude of sins and I am building my goals around this. I want to 'sort out' so many different aspects of my life and I suspect a year is not long enough to achieve everything that I want to. I want to sort out home, work, thoughts, money, and crafting!!!

This fantastic mini poster was made for me by the very generous and talented Helena (you can see her blog here) as part of my Pay it Forward from her (I will show you the rest of my fab pressie in another post I loved it all so a hug belated thank you Helena xxx) So I have a constant reminder of my goal! We have never met and yet she has shown me real kindness in handmaking beautiful papercrafts, personalised especially for me.

I might be brave and post a picture of my crafty area tomorrow so you can all see how much I need to sort out ...... it's a mess! I could post a picture of the piles of books that I want to read, but the book shelves are overflowing! Or I could show you the inside of a cupboard stuffed with stuff!! It might shame me into fixing things or I might just feel too overwhelmed by the enormity of what I need and want to sort out!

On a lighter note I planned to read 52 books in 52 weeks this year, I am actually quite behind! I also want to make many more LO's as have only managed 2 so far this year. I didn't read any books, scrap or have a life in January as I was finishing all my work (there was tonnes!) for my Non Medical Prescribing course a Uni. So have only been catching up in Feb and March......

By the way I heard yesterday that I PASSED!!! YIPPEEEEEE!! I have a shiny new qualification to register with the NMC.

looking forward to reading about your goals and what keeps you motivated and any tips you have for me! xxx


  1. Well done on passing....that's great news.
    I'm hoping to have a big sort out of my craft area over Easter...it's definately a mess....and I too have a stack of books 'waiting' to be read!!

  2. Many congrats on your new qualification! Life taking over so it's hard to do LOs is a familiar scenario over here too!

  3. Congratulations on your new qualification, yay! As for motivation, wish I had some, lol. I've heard of 'baby steps' as a method, doing one drawer, say, on one day and feeling good that you've done it. Building on that and finishing one room...

  4. Well Done on passing your course!! My perennial mantra is to get sorted so I can't offer much in the way of advice but I have found little & often can help with mundane tasks sadly, it's no good for reading I forget what I've read x

  5. Congratulations!

    I love the word art Helena made for you, I have had a go at making a couple of these sorts of things and plan to hang them in the house once it is finished ... erm, maybe that will be never!

    I'll be back for the craft room post .... go on, be brave! :-)

  6. Congratulations on your achievement.

  7. Congratulations :)

    The word art is fab :)

  8. Well done on passing hun, I knew you could do it.
    Fab poster, love all the different fonts & sizes, works so well, you are a lucky bunny to receive it :)

  9. Many congratulations!

    That poster is fabulous.

  10. Congrats on your success - the hard work has paid off. Love the poster - I could do with one to keep me motivated :D

  11. Congratulations! Hmmm, I think I could have used Sort Out this year too. Like that poster - what a great gift.

  12. Congratulations -twice! Once for passing, and once for being a winner in my tsunami relief blog giveaway! Send me your mailing address, and I'll drop your prize in the mail (an assortment of bookmarks & cards).

  13. What a fabulous gift from Helena! Love it!

    And many congratulations on your good news xx

  14. Congratulations on passing!
    I would have a goal of reading 52 books a year but I fear I would easily break that, I sometimes read three a week! the joys of a long commute!
