I think mine needs to be "create". I really need to get myself in gear and do more layouts than I have been doing for the past several years.

1)Stop buying and hoarding and start creating!
2) It's OK to cut "pretty paper". There will be more where that came from!

I'm using up (and/or purging) 2013 scrappy goodies in 2013 in anticipation of moving baby beanette into that room by the end of the year. And that means if I buy stuff it counts against that, so I'm trying to limit my buying as we'll.

Moments - capture the everyday, get back to journaling rather than just snapping pics with my phone to "get to later."

Am also stealing "do it." Thanks!

That popped into my head when I saw this thread title.
I am the kind of scrapper that likes to be caught up so my goal is to work towards that. I need to spend more time scrapping and less time online.

I've been trying to use my supplies for more than just layouts/ cards. This Christmas I made tags, banners, decorated gift bags, altered comp books/ and made post it note holders for work gifts. I feel that the only way that i am going to make a dent in the stash is to use the supplies for these extra projects and holiday decor. My theme this year is to just make something... Bring the stash to life - enjoy and use the goodies.

I agree TOTALLY with Angel Pea. . .Enjoy the process and schedule scrapping time! After all, this is a hobby. It's supposed to be fun, right? I have also been thinking that it doesn't matter how many layouts I get done. No pressure. Just have fun!!!!

This is a quote from May Flaum she had on her blog and I think it is pretty great and would like to adapt it to my crafting in 2013.

"I think I will (as always!) let my heart guide my crafting in new and fun directions this week." - May Flaum

Get started and create! It doesn't matter whether it is a card, or layout, just get started and create something. Once I get started, I am good, it is the getting started sometimes where I stall out!

"Enough" and "Enjoy". Clearly, I have more than enough: I've been a Frozen Pea for quite some time and other than adhesive, I want or need nothing. Truly.

"Enjoy" is a good reminder to enjoy the blessings I have and to treasure the memories I have made with family and friends. Our time spent together, our shared laughter and inside jokes, the places we've been to, and the new experiences we have had. I'm very blessed and lucky and this past year has truly changed me.

I'm with Pelly

As I was looking through the store & putting stuff in my cart, I thought This is crazy...just because there is a sale...I just got stuff for Christmas...I have more than enough to scrap with. So I am deleting my cart and going with what I have.
AND my DD anounced that she is pregnant again so my blessings will be growing this next year as this will be grandchild # 5.

Mine will be use, and finish.

When I moved my scrap room, I realized how much stuff I have. I need to cut back spending anyway, so might as well shop my stash.

I also have a bunch of unfinished layouts (needs pictures and or journaling). I need to FINISH what I start when I start it.

I am also using up (trying to anyway) use my scraps for cards for Operation Write Home. I have enough scraps and other papers to supply everyone with cards for a lifetime.

Mine echo what so many others have said- scrap more, buy less...use what you buy...use your stash...stop hoarding and start using.

REALLY looking forward to putting that into action in 2013!
