One of my goals this year is to take better photos & to expand my knowledge of my camera as well as Photoshop. I noticed from the giveaway post that a lot of you share the same desire & have goals along the same lines. If your goal is to take a photo-a-day not only will you have an awesome glimpse of your life by the end of the year but you will in turn become a better photographer. Well, that's what we hope right?
Craft time is one of our favorite times of our day, next to the numerous snack times. This particular afternoon we were painting with watercolors. She loves it and Woody enjoys to sit and watch too! :)
I wasn't loving the shots I was getting so I sat on the kitchen floor. One of my goals to getting better photos is to explore new angles and sitting on the kitchen floor was a great way to mix up the daily shots I capture at our kitchen table.

In the January CK I share with readers a magnetic board full of goals for this year. I have photos of the basic categories then there's a clip where I've written then hung more of the specific details. I'm not that great at New Year's Resolutions but this way I can switch out my goals if something is completely unattainable and reevaluate each month.
(To see more check out the January Creating Keepsakes.)
Last year was a great one for goals:
Have a baby. check
Sing at the top of my lungs with Coldplay. check
Start a column in CK. check
Eat my weight in cookie dough. double check
I can feel this year will be a great one too!
