New Year's Resolutions

Every year I made a short list of resolutions, most of which are forgotten by the end of February. Some are personal goals like stop procrastinating, keep caught up on laundry, stay know, the usuals. Often I make one or two about how I create. This year, I have not only focused on creating but used the wonderful little "Ten" kit from Dude Essentials (available at actually put my resolutions down on paper but to also have a system in place to check my progress. Most of the papers are Basic Grey (periphery line) and the clocks are Heidi Swapp. I also used one of the ghost birds by Heidi to do one of the tags. To create the hands for the clocks, I reversed brads and shortened one of the wings. While the screw needed a larger hole than I could punch with either my Japanese screw punch or my Crop-0-dile, I replaced it with a hinged o ring. I'll add ribbons and beads later. This can hang right on my bulletin board in front of me daily as a reminder.

Maybe this year, I can keep a few of the resolutions I make.

Inspired! I was thinking about doing something similar but no where near as beautiful as your creation.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday.
