First off, thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us.
New Year's resolution : complete 1 scrapbook page per week. (7 grandchildren should give me plenty of material, not to mention past family events and vacations that never were put into scrapbooks.)

Happy New Year! Your blog is awesome and I always look forward to seeing what you've posted!

My resolution is to get my genetically high cholesterol under 200 (it's been as high as 312, and currently 234) and to weigh ANYTHING less than my low weight that I met in June (a 50-pound weight loss).

My resolution this year is to do one thing that I continually put off. Make a will and health proxy. My hubby has one but I don't. It's something I don't like to think about and always put on the back burner. With my age creeping up and more assets accumulating...it's time. I have 2008 to get it done! BTW-great blog and blog candy. Love the stamps. Happy 2008!

Carolynn said...

Congratulations! I love your clean, crisp style and often find inspiration in your cards. My new year's resolution is to be better organized, free myself from unnecessary clutter and stop hoarding DP ;o). Cheers!

Wow, great goodies! Happy New Year to you!
My resolutions for this year are more like guidelines, lol. I want to take more time to stamp. Eat better than I currently do and to enjoy everyday (even if I'm at work). Take care!

Denise (denidill) said...

My resolution is to buy a bike this spring and starting biking with my hubby to help him lose weight and get him fit. I've tried everything else, so this is my new strategy....errr....resolution! Cheers!

Jan Scholl said...

I plan on running a marathon this fall. mostly because I need a vacation out of this city that doesnt involve flying. so I will torture myself to get one.

shannon said...

New Years Resolution- I am going to try to incorporate nutritional food into my diet! (I am a junk food junkie!)
Wish me luck as I will need it!
Happy New Year!

Life with Hunter said...

I always hate making New Year's resolutions because I never can seem to keep them very long. The only one I want to make is to keep a positive attitude at work. I always seem to let things get to me there and I have to learn to step back and not let things draw me in to them.

I also want to devote more time to my blog and see if I can't generate the kind of interest you have! Happy New Year!

Jaime said...

Okay, my resolution is more of a prayer. My desire is to use a kinder tone of voice when I'm frustrated with my kids.

A not-so-serious one--to keep my craft room neater... :-)

OMGoodness!! I LOVE the stamps and the ribbon too!! You are so generous!! My resoultions are to: teach my daughter how to read, stop spending money on craft supplies and instead donate that money that I saved to the Crohn's and Colits Foundation, submit my work for publication, and join a design team. Thanks!

What an adorable stamp set!! Wow!! My stamping resolutions this year include using up dp I already have before buying more (ok...that may be more of a guideline!) and to submit at least 2 projects for publication this year. Thanks for the fun chance!

foodpartyfun said...

Happy 2008 to you! I am going to continue to be organized in 2008 and concentrate on using what I already have instead of buying more "stuff". Sending more RAK's to brighten someone's day. Love the cute heart stamps...great for the upcoming Valentine's Day. Thanks for sharing.

Annelies said...

I just discovered your blog and I immediately added it to my favorites. I really like your cards, they are so sophisticated.

My main resolution for this year is start to run (again). I've started a program in the last week of december and if I complete it I'll be able to run 5 kms within 10 weeks. I really think I'll succeed this time. I hope you'll all reach your goals!

Mercy said...

congrats on the hits, chat! i love visiting you to see the new creations you've come up with each day!

one of my new year's resolutions is to make some cards/projects that are outside of my box...a little different than i normally do. i figured that if i started small then i would actually be able to follow through with a resolution! LOL!

taraprescott said...

Happy New Year! You have a great blog! And beautiful cards!

One resolution is to pray with my son (8 months old) before every meal. :)

Diane said...

My word for the new year is
TODAY
I get so overwhelmed with all I have to do- I am just going to try and focus on "Today". What can I do "Today" and not worry about what I didn't do yesterday or worry about next week.
Just ... Today.
Thanks for the blog candy!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

My NYR is to be kinder to my children, try not to yell at them so much, and to watch my sometimes potty mouth. I use the four letter "D" word too much in front of them.

I CAN DO THIS!!!!

Thanks for such a FAB blog!!

Melissa said...

Woo-hoo! Congrats on so many hits Chat!

One of my resolutions this year is to start submitting my work for publications. I was a semi-finalist last year on Craft Critique, but got a little discouraged when I didn't make first place. I'm okay with it now and am ready to start submitting again!

Many Blessings,
Melissa

Kelli in Kentucky said...

I usually do not make new years resolutions but this year I decided to make a few. One is to join the CCC2008 on split coast and make 10 plus Christmas cards every month so I will be ready for Christmas this year. The second resolution I made is to get caught up on my scrapbooking. I have been making card more in the last year and I am very behind. Last is to lose weight. Thanks for your wonderful blog I really enjoy your work have a great New Year.

Tanya Straw said...

My New Year's resolution is simply to spend more quality time with my children.

AttorneyMom said...

My new year's resolution -- to scrap my life's journey. I've been too constrained by perfectionism to start.

Mandiannie said...

I'm hoping to get more organized this year. Hopefully I'll be able to get somewhere with that.

sheila said...

It just came to me....my new years resolution this year is to start making my cards (with all my stash that just sits there) and quit buying them at the last minute. BTW, you blog is great. Love it.

Linda SS said...

Congrats on a successful blog! That stamp set would make such cute valentines - thanks for the chance to win. I never took resolutions seriously so haven't made them in years. I really want to spend more time in prayer and worship so will definitely be working on that as my goal for 2008.

Jennifer Evans said...

Oh my! I just stumbled on your blog after seeing your beautiful cards in the SCS gallery. Beautiful work!

My goal is to be more organized and stamp once a day.

Lastel said...

Thanks for all your inspiring work , you are one of my favorite stampers ! One of my resolutions this year is to use any unused stamps I have atleast once this year , a huge task I must admit !

Debbie/StudioBeeCreations said...

CONGRATULATIONS on your hits!!!...My resolution.....is probably like MOST of us out there who are soooooo obsessive with our STUFF!!....I vow to USE IT UP!....

Laurie said...

I love your cards! My NYRs include getting more organized (is there something about liking crafts and not being as organized as we want to be?) and using my time more wisely!

MJ said...

Cool, one of my resolutions is to actually do something with all the cards I make -- like send RAKs, maybe even remember a birthday or two, lol!

Great blog thanks for sharing.

JAR said...

Well, isn't this fun! I hope you are blessed in the new year as you have blessed me with your comments and your creations to share!

I actually just wrote a whole article about resolutions on my blog....it might be easier to read it there!

JAR said...

Oh - forgot to say you have been tagged! Check out the end of today's post on my blog!

Cindy Vernon said...

Congrats! I resolve to use up the craft supplies I have before going nuts buying more!

Wendy said...

Love your site, Chat, and one day we'll meet in person, since we're almost neighbors!

One of my resolutions this year is to go through my house and clean out the stuff I don't use and organize the rest. This will seriously cut into my stamping time, but it's a MUST!

mudmaven said...

I need to push my creative envelope - do more challenges and keep up with my new blog! Thanks, ~chris

Jewels said...

Thanks so much for this offer! My resolution is to do at least one 12x12 page per daughter (2) each week of the year. I have my fingers crossed that I will be able to do it.

Margie said...

Congrats on your milestone.

My resolution is to catch up on my scrapbooking. I love to make cards which tend to be quicker projects and this sometimes gets in my way of giving my photos the attention they deserve.

utahrn said...

Happy New Year! I love you ribbon flower tutorial! Your posts always inspire me to try new things! Which is my resolution for the new year! I would like to try a stretch myself a little and get away from always taking the comfortable route.

Babs said...

Happy New Year! I love reading your blog and enjoy your crafty creations! I'd love to say my NYR is to lose weight but....I love cake way too much! :-)
Actually the NYR I made was to be better about sending cards (birthday, holiday, etc.) to friends and family! We'll see how well I do at it!

Ashley said...

Your cards are so beautiful. My most important New Year's Resolution is to spend at least 20 minutes daily reading my Bible and praying.

Kelli said...

My resolution isn't crafty at all...lol. My resolution is to clean up more often than I do. It constantly looks like a crayon exploded in my living room, but that's life with a two year old for ya.

StampMom said...

Happy New Year! Great cards. My New Year's resolution is to make more time to stamp on a consistent basis, and to incorporate stamping into my scrapbooking more.

Thanks for a chance at some great candy! Your cards are just amazing - I've got so many of them 'starred' in my google reader!!
As for a resolution, I've never been good at keeping them in the past. Although, I've had some health issues last year and I really need to make an effort to take better care of 'me'!
Thanks again, and all the best in 2008!!
