Do you make a scrapping goal each year?

I only started making goals the last couple of years. I decided to do this because I got a rather late start scrapping -- my kids were grown and I had grandkids when I got started -- and have so so many pictures to scrap and plenty of time to do it. Making a goal is sort of my way of better managing my time. As it is, I still waste plenty of it. ;)

Last year I set a very modest goal of 52 layouts, in addition to all the other projects I do throughout the year. I figured one page a week was certainly doable for someone who has all the time in the world! I also figured I would get a lot more done if I set a goal for myself and kept track of what I accomplished. This thinking was the result of a very lazy previous year in which I did a whopping 11 layouts for the entire year. Talk about wasted time. I was so mad at myself I decided I must set a goal to keep myself motivated and get those pictures scrapped! Well I far surpassed that goal so this year I set the goal at 100. I made my goal for the year on September 1, so now it's all gravy for the rest of the year! Woohoo, go me!

Do you set a scrapping goal for yourself? How do you decide what your goal will be for the year? And do you generally make your goal(s)?

Leave a comment to be entered into a drawing for a QuicKutz die! Deadline midnight Friday, September 18.


  1. Funnily enough I started making goals this year when I realised I had been saying I would start my sons school album for the last 3 years! A suprise pregnancy spurred me on with this project and I now set myself new goal each month.

  2. I have only been scrapping about 3 yrs. This is the first year I set a goal, like you Shar it is 52 pages.

  3. I have not set any goals... so it looks like you are my example. I having been going through all of the old pics of my mom and scanning them. 2010... 100 pages! Now it's in print... I have to do it... right?

  4. Congrats Vicki! You're our winner in the drawing. :) Send me your info and I'll get your die in the mail!

    Thanks to all who participated.
