50 Things I will like to try... Check-in

Sneak Peek of 2011 February Main Kit from 3Scrappy Boys Kit club.




On January 4, 2010 I wrote a list of 50 things I would like to try on 2010 or in the near future. Some were things I planned to do anyway and others were dreams or wishes. This should have been done one year ago. Now, I am completing this, better now or never. (Check in done in January 29, 2012). I love to work outside home, but one of my regrets it is the limited time, I have for myself. Sometimes, I feel that I want to live on a slower pace, but at the same time I need to keep up the pace for my family. This sunday evening, I took a time for myself. This is the rationale for writing this post.


I want to add that, this is mostly for me, to have in my records. If you are not interested in reading it, it is OK. If you are curious, then go ahead.




Here they are:
  1. Family trip to Walt Disney World. (done Summer, 2010)
  2. Read War and Peace from Leo Tolstoy - done (2010)
  3. Visit Austria - not in the plans

  10. Write at least one new post weekly to this blog - (need to take the time for this, now that I am working full time, it is getting more difficult just to blog, I need to wait just 2 or 3 months when I will return as a SAHM)
  11. Start a small business - (not sure, if I am interested.)
  12. Get a Master of Business Administration degree (not interested since I am not interested to create a business, however I want a MS in Statistics. I really want to continue doing projects on an occasional basis at pharmaceutical companies, as I am doing right now.)

  49. Visit Italy - (no yet, right now with the actual situation, not interested.)
  50. Take a cooking class in Italy - (someday)
This was a great exercise, especially that after two years many of my interests changed.I am pretty sure than more than 50% of the list changes already. Definitely, this is something I want to do again.
But this is for another post.

Have a great week.

ABC Challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous

Hi, everyone! I am back! I am fine. I just took a little break from scrapbooking and blogging. Okay, I really been busy in my 2012 projects for the home, fitness, organizing, decluttering, reading, money (budget)... Still working on my PLAN. I have a long list of to do items that I am just working on crossing off them. I am working with my other life's areas first before taking scrapbooking at full swing. More of this theme on later posts.

We are up to letter F at Scrapbookers-Anonymous challenge blog. You can create and upload your projects including manufacturers like Fancy Pants, Fiskars and or embellishments starting with the letter F such as... flowers, felt, and/or themes like friends, frogs, fun, family...

Here is my take. Actually, this is my first layout of the year after more than 3 weeks scrapping hiatus. I used the past winter collection from Fancy Pants. It is Hot Chocolate. And you know what. I love this collection as it was really new.
I added some flowers from Making Memories and Purple Pumpkin. The photo is from our weekend trip to Lucerne on 2003 (the winter when we lived in Italy and before having kids). The city is beautiful but it was really cold. I just wanted to drink hot chocolate and stay inside. I used a sketch #189 from Creative Scrappers.

Do not forget the January's challenge. Use your mist, paint, masks stash. More details at this post.

Have a nice day!
Yara
