Seeking Bliss

I have 3 swaps going on now and one I am grossly behind on one, so what do I do? I start my own personal project to avoid the creative block I am suffering elsewhere. Heehee. Actually, my personal project is a tiny altered book created from a mini Golden Book. I can complete a page working a few minutes here and there which is about all I've had away from kids and housework and holiday-ing. God only knows how I will get the swaps done!

While decluttering (a little- to the naked eye, you wouldn't know I had organized anything) I put away Christmas rubber stamps and papers and in the process have found some lost things. Some things have still remained lost so I need to continue my decluttering to find them (namely some hole reinforcements- the vintage kind you lick and stick- I have an unfinished tag that is just not complete without one and I refuse to add fibers until I find those silly reinforcements. I know they are with a small bag of blank dog tags, but where did I squirrel them both away?????) It's making me hanker for altering and starting some things differently in the New Year. I want to lose 30 lbs. (not unreasonable) and make some art and think of the two goals as one in the same since I plan to use my art as a means to accomplish the weight loss (If I am painting and gluing, I can't be stuffing my face!) So what are some of your goals for the new year? They don't have to be big. Even one small change can be life altering.
