In 2009 I would finally like to reach my goal of hiking 400 + miles in a single year. The weather in last few weeks of 2008 cancelled couple of our planned trips and left me 6 miles shy of achieving the goal. Iím hoping to organize several longer trip and perhaps even a backpacking trip during summer so that the miles should cumulate fast. My scrapbooking goal is to document every single of of my 2009 adventures and also complete an album for my newborn niece ducumenting her first year. Iím also looking for ways to grow as an artist and would love to became part of a design team or be selected as guest designer for a card challenge blog. To achieve this goal I will try to step outside the box and experiment with variety of techniques to add interestingness to my projects. I hope to create at least 100 cards this year for great variety of occasions.
