New Years Resolutions

For the first time ever ( I think ), I actually made new years resolutions and wrote them down. I did this as I was making a project for Scrappy Giraffe. Had I not done that, probably wouldn't have done them. Since approximately 1/3 of the year is gone already, I got them out to look at them. I'm doing pretty well on almost everything believe it or not. Now I did make some scrapbooking goals (yeah I know I am a NERD) but as this was a scrapbook project, I thought it would be warrented. I am failing miserably on one of my goals (buy less...well maybe I'm doing about 1.5% better than last year). One of the other goals was to enter one of the big contests. For those unfamiliar to the wacko world of scrapbooking...the major magazines run contests every year to find the "best" scrapbookers out there. Anyway the magazine Creating Keepsakes just finished theirs which I failed to enter so I am left with Memory Makers in which submissions are due in a few months. Anyway, I feel rather obligated to try it since I wrote it down so I am making it public that I am going to try to enter (I always do better if I tell people I'm going to do something...that way I feel like I can't back out...like I did for CK HOF). The chances of me winning are about 0.5% (that would ZERO point FIVE), but I guess that is a bit better than the 0% chance I would have if I didn't enter =). Anyway I will be looking for the 4 best layouts to send to them. The deal is that these can not be seen in a public domain. So I am looking for an official advisory committee to give me real and honest advice in a private domain. So I think that disqualifies you mom as your advice is always tainted by the fact that you are my mother (but if you are dying to be on my committee, I guess I'll allow it =) ) So anyone interested..??????? Please leave a comment and someway for me to contact you if I don't have your email address. Seriously...if I'm going to enter this thing, I'm going to try my hardest even for that 0.5% chance.

I resent that you feel I might be bias or have a tainted opinion of anything you might do!!!!!!!!! Can I help it if I have great taste??????????? Lets see if anyone else steps up....That is a challenge to all your other readers. I of course can be a subsitute for all the ones who might be too afraid to apply?? Hope I am not making eveyone mad (who might not understand my sarcastic sense of humor)

Just a question...does having appeared on your blogg count as having been seen by the public or whatever? Just wondering.

Not sure if I'm all that knowledgable of scrap-n-crap stuff, but I could give it a try if you need me to. I can recognize things that i like and think are cool - if that helps. So, I think you know how to get ahold of me...
