Celebrating the New Year with an Unscripted Blog Hop

Saturday, January 2, 2010

EDITED TO ADD:  Congrats Linda L.  Random # generator picked 28.  Contact me with the email on my sidebar and I'll get your goodies out to you.  Thanks again to everyone for stopping by and leaving a comment.  I loved reading them all.

Today, the designers at Unscripted Sketches have a special blog hop for you.  If you've arrived from Unscripted, then you are on the right track, as I'll be kicking off the hop. 
I've been thinking a lot about a new year and what that means to me.  It's a new year to implement some changes, a new year to improve, and a new year to reflect.

I thought I'd list out my top 10 goals for 2010, in no particular order.

1.  Have an improved family life with less contention and strife
2.  Pass the CPA exam
3.  Lose 15 pounds
4.  Read my scriptures daily
5.  Pray daily
6.  Complete 100 layouts
7.  Develop a more personal relationship with my Saviour, Jesus Christ
8.  Take guitar lessons
9.  Make 2 more design teams
10.  To improve at whatever task is at hand, no matter how big or small

It's now time to hop on over to April's blog and see what she has in store for you.  I thank you for your visit and for making blogging so much fun.  As my New Years gift to you, blog candy will be offered to all leaving a comment.  I'm still in the process of putting it together so unfortunately, there's no picture right now.  I'll draw the winner Sunday evening. Thanks so much and have a fantastic Saturday.

Alanna! I have missed you :-) I see you have been busy - as always I love your work. The wrapping paper card is sweet! I also love your goals. You might want to follow my blog http://maries-stories.blogspot.com/2010/01/scott-has-marie-moment.html
"It's a wonderful life" to encourage you in your walk with the Lord, because one of my goals of 2010 is to write more encouraging posts for fellow believers...and for nonbelievers to understand the truth of the Scriptures.
