2011 Crafting resolution !!

Hello blog, its only appropriate I share my 2011 crafting resolution here.  For this year, I am committed to CREATE more!   2010 I discovered I had a habit of collecting crafting supplies. My guess is many are like me. I have found a few of my online buddies with similar habits and thus we have decided to put our products to work.  If you are a Cricut lover... then you know all to well the thrill of collecting cartridges. Well I have a collection of more than 100 and its now time to put them to work!   Here is the plan. First, I have inventoried all carts, and obtained a quaint little jar for my crafting table.  This jar is filled with small popsicle sticks each containing the name of a cartridge I currently own.   I will draw from this jar and will post on my blog the title of my newest challenge.  From it I will create whatever my heart desires,  layouts of my family, altered items or just embellished cuts for future projects.  Pics. will be posted here.... and drum roll needed  \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\  This will also be placed on a shared blog with a few of my on line friends.
This blog will feature their own personal challenges as well. We think this is going to not only inspire us to do more, but also inspire our followers.  We each will be creating based on our own personal challenge thus all projects, themes and carts could be different.  Its going to be fun!!!
Check back soon, Ill be posting the Cartridge to be used for the first of my projects as well as a link to the shared site!
Bring on 2011 and the challenge of using every single cartridge in my possession by the end of the year!
