That is how that little blogging break felt.  I love sharing and documenting here but I needed the break. I needed to know that there was one less thing that needed my attention for just a bit.  I needed to enjoy December before it passed me by.

And I did.  I enjoyed planning for the holidays and spending time with the men in my life.  My camera card is almost FULL with the pictures I've taken this month.  Thats awesome but I have a lot of sorting to do.

There has been minimal crafting but thats about to change.  I've made a resolution for 2013 already.  I realize now that I do not and will not have the time or energy to scrapbook as much as I have in the past.  I started to feel the pressure to use everything I bought and then it ends up sitting.  I have so much stuff.  Its ridiculous how much I have and that prompted a small purge of the room.  Mostly paper and a few embellishments.  I'll be listing flat rate boxes again for anyone interested.  I will also be participating in Project Life again this year.  I did 19 weeks last year before I bowed out gracefully because it was too much work.

Not this year.  I'm renewed and I have a new plan.  I'm also not going to try and 'get caught up' with older pictures.  I've got baby pictures of N that I feel I will never get around to scrapping.  I told my husband the only thing I wanted for Christmas was:

They were under the tree for me this Christmas and I felt a HUGE weight lifted off my shoulders.  Photos of  my son make up 80% of the photos I've taken since 2007.  I added in some of the WRMK albums from Michaels to document.  I'm not worried about getting this done as I've been good about keeping the photos in folders by year, month and event.  Most of them have been printed out so now its just a matter of adding them to the divided pages.  Its one of those projects that I can take anywhere and work on.  No packing up my entire room to work on something.

It also seems like I'll be spending more time at the rink in 2013 and this will be perfect for those days.  Give me something to do other than be 'that' Hockey Mom.  ;)

My other resolution for 2013 is to document more here.  

I've got plans for posts through New Years so check back.  I've got a lot more to share!
