April Goals

Post by pawprints » Wed Apr 01, 2020 12:17 am

Well Cherries I had a goal of 10 last month and did 8, which is really a lot for me in a month. I might have hit my goal had I not lost my whole desire to scrap or do just about anything these past few weeks, but then again I probably would have been out and around and not even scrapped the 8 that I did. Who knows.

So how did everyone else do, and what is your goal for this month? Since it seems like we will still be staying in the whole month of April, and as long as all remains ok here, I am going to try for 12. I also want to make my mom a birthday card and an Easter card and I want to attempt to make her a flower arrangement all made of paper. That is my plan.

Barb there have been times in my life that I haven't scrapbooked for a month due to the same feelings.  Life has its ups and downs doesn't it?  My entire life is photography and scrapbooking.  right now I'm struggling like crazy with a 1989 album of the last trip I took to Disney World with my parents.  Some of the pictures are horrible and are requiring photo shopping be done and then reprint.  Then I lose my design mojo.  Since I'm being published in magazines I can't afford that to happen to me...which of course makes me more stressed!  I find what helps me most is to look at my stack of photos and when I find something that I really want to see in my scrapbook I work on that and then I go back to my other project and usually get back in the groove.  I'll count my layouts from March and make a goal for April.  Thank you for that idea and for sharing.  Love, Debra

I can't remember what my goals were for March - but I didn't meet them.  I didn't manage to get any scrapping done.  Between working at 2 different facilities, trying to take care of my parents - both of who were sick for most of March... I just didn't make it into my scrappy room. 
Still going to work every day - essential hospital employee, but hopefully they are working on a plan for us to work from home.  (I work as a pharmacy technician but my job is to make sure that people who don't have insurance or are underinsured have access to their prescription medication before they go home, so that could entail getting them signed up with a drug company program, special pricing, etc.)  If I am able to work from home, I think I could be more productive all the way around.

So, my goals for April - I'm setting them as if I won't be working from home....
4 layouts, 5 cards.

I am "just" starting to scrap again but I am really going to push myself this month.  Between the social distancing thing (no crops, no racing for this month, maybe longer) and a 4 day weekend for Easter, I do not see a problem getting 20 LO's done this month!!!  Something good usually comes from something bad  :greeninlove:

OK, goal of ONE! LOL, need a kickstart from not doing any at all for way too long. Also goal of checking in more often. If I surpass the one, then I'll be super happy with myself. But my room is such a mess, so no telling what I'll find to work with. It became a storage room, sadly so I"ll will have to work on that as well. Good seeing you cherry friends old and new.

I exceeded my goals last month 24/22 LOs and 16/6 cards! I doubt I can match that this month. I am in the process of putting away my scrapping supplies in preparation to taking the RV to Kerrville, TX on Sat - at least we hope we can get there. I have a drs appt on Tues. 

I will say 15 LOs and 5 cards for April.

Since I  haven't played on the boards in a long time, I did not have a goal for March.  But I did get a few pages done since COVID-19 has me home from work and now starting today we are on a shelter in order. 

This month I am going to attempt to complete 25 layouts.

I did better than I thought. My goal was 10 and I did 13. Now with April, I'm going to increase my goal to 15. I think I can do that with weekends being at home now. Work is still busy, so that part hasn't changed.

My goal for March was 20 but I managed to complete 24,  Like Barb, I kind of lost my desire to scrap but all the things we had scheduled for March were cancelled . So even though I didn't have that much mojo, I did have lots of extra time.

Since we are secluded inside for probably the entire month of April,  I'm going to try for 25 layouts and hope to do more.

13/25

March was a really bad month for me. No motivation at all! I hope to change that this month,
though with the warmer weather, I spend more time outside. I am going to shoot for 20.


14/20

I can't believe I am getting to this thread and it is already the 12th!  I did nothing in March.  I have a two pager that has been sitting since the end of February.   I am going to set my goal for 2 in hopes I get those done.  No desire and I believe it is because I am now working from home and my office is in my sacred space!  Here's hoping the rest of April is better than the first part.

Another goal of mine is to get off YouTube.  I spend more time watching others create!
