For The Men In Our Lives

Happy Thursday everyone :)

So I'm tre tre tired these days :(
My little Emma who was once a fantastic sleeper is now, yup, a terrible one! She is now 2.4 years and is waking up at all hours screaming her head off! And mine too for that matter! Nightmares, conversations or just plain standing up and staring. Yes. Very spooky. Yes. Very annoying. LOL
Her sister went through the same but she had started super early so by this age she was done with it. So I'm going on my 7th year of terrible sleep :(
Being awake so often has given me the chance to dream and ponder on what's next to come though. I'm not one to make resolutions but some goals are on the mind. I spent 7 hours cleaning my craft room. An undertaking NOT for the faint-of-heart! Shredded old bills, organized paperwork yada yada yada.....
Gutted my drawers and the girls of clothes that don't fit or wear. Rearranged closets, toys, desks.....
So obviously, one of my goals (like many people) is to get organized! So far so good but all it takes is one lazy day and my mojo is out the window! Got to get it back!
Other things on my list is:
~ Create more. I get caught up with a couple of projects and forget about the basics.
~ Dance more. I LOVE dancing. So do the girls. So blast the tunes baby!
~ Stay on top of cleaning.
~ Take more photos and video.
That's about it.... I think. Well, at least for January! LOL
HEY!? It's another wonderful challenge over at Paper Romance this week :) Did you know?

This week let's celebrate the men in our lives. Dad, Hubby, Gramps, son etc. Create a project for a man/boy this week and you can win (chosen at random) a $5 Gift Certificate to the Paper Romance Store!

I didn't make this card with anyone in mind but always good to have just in case. I used the adorable Popcorn the Bear I love you set. Yes. Simply adorable.
