A New Years Resolution/Goal

For some time now I have wanted to venture out further into the Scrapbooking industry.  However, putting myself out there can sometimes leave me feeling vulnerable and open to criticism.  That can be a difficult thing when it is about something that is a piece of me...a personal creation of mine.  I have decided that 2010 is the year...the year to accomplish some of those goals that I have wanted to do for some time now.  There's no time like the present!

My 2010 Creative Goals
  1. CREATE BLOG: The creation of my blog is goal number one because many of my other goals require having a blog.  
  2. MAINTAINING BLOG:  My plan is to update my blog at least once a week.
  3. TEACH MORE CLASSES:  As part of venturing out I would like to teach more classes in different locations.  I love my followers from The Inspiration Station and I am not going anywhere, but adding another teaching location is another goal of mine.
  4. CERTIFIED RANGER EDUCATOR:  I really, really, really want to attend RANGER U and become a Certified Ranger Educator.  While I have used many of the Ranger products in my classes and I love them all,  I would like to learn more to improve my knowledge on some of their other products as well as being able to pass along this information in my classes.  They say it is difficult to get in due to the limited number of spaces available and only two classes a year are wish me luck and... Tim if you are on my blog...PLEASE PICK ME!!! :-)
  5. COPIC CERTIFIED DESIGNER: The second certification that I would like to obtain is in Copic Markers.  When I use my Copics it reminds me of going back to school on the first day and that new box of crayons was on your desk.  I love to makes me feel young again and it is relaxing!  
  6. DESIGN TEAM:  Look for a design team that would be right for me and go for it!  Try and try again.  You can't do it if you don't try.  So, I will try for the one(s) that is a good fit.  
Now that I have set these goals, I will be trying to accomplish them.  I will be sure to let you know when I meet a goal...and if you have any pull at Ranger...give a tug for me :-)

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and I hope that you will come back again!
