Resolutions... 2017 goals!

So personal goals aside (loose weight, drink less sugary drinks, etc) I've made a few creative goals that I'd like to complete in the year 2017. I plan on keeping the 'DO NOT BUY MORE PAPER!' rule I started late last year, and I've been pretty good with sticking to it. I've listed below what I'd like to achieve. 
Get on a Design Team. Create a Video and get a YouTube account.Practice more Watercolour (a lot)Spruce up the blog design...Keep craft room clean (I've failed this one every year...)This month I applied for 3 Design Team opportunities. I haven't heard back from any but will keep trying. I miss that little creative push being on a design team gives and I could do with a little bit of a challenge creatively.  
Do you have any creative goals to achieve 2017?
Here are two more cards I created using a Itty Bitty Unity Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by. Here's to a inspirational 2017 and hopefully a cleaner craft room!

Happy New Year!

Yes... I know... I'm well and truly behind this year! Especially with the blog writing!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a safe new year. I was lucky enough to have my husband home for the holiday break plus a little more. It meant getting a lot of those little house hold chores done - like sorting the garage, clearing out some kids toys, fixing lights, cleaning the back yard, flipping mattresses,  buying a new toaster, storing away winter clothes and for me (alone) it also meant catching up on some much needed sleep.
It also gave me some time to make cards which is what I will be sharing with you today.
I'm a big fan of paper piecing - always have been...when I'm lazy and don't feel like colouring its my go to technique.
I made three cards using this cute flamingo stamp from Unity Stamp Co. 

Are you big fans of paper piecing? I will say that I generally will choose an image that's relatively easy to cut! 
Happy Crafting!
