    I never tell my goals out loud but this year I have a big one! I have been very sick for several years but before I got sick I started to clean my craft storage room. Almost everything is spread through the basement, some packed in marked boxes. For 2018 my goal is to get my room organized so I can once again go down to stamp and scrap to my heart’s content in the back half of the basement which is my designated craft room. A monumental task since I have been collecting for over 25 years but I am determined and that is half the battle!
