One of the ways I plan to use my word for the year, "Strength", is to flex and strength my creative muscles. I really haven't done much in the past 8 months, just a handful of layouts, mostly ones that were for gifts. I love to make stuff even when it doesn't turn out. I plan on working creatively at least 10 minutes every single day, NO MATTER WHAT! So far I've done it, so 4 days into it and I have 4 layouts completely done too. I have been working way more than 10 minutes a day, but I know that won't always happen. I've also decided I have to finish my 2009 picture of the day album ... no, that's not a typo ... 2009 is right. I did take all the photos and 90% of the photos are printed. I also am trying to get back to challenges and sketches. I saw this challenge sketch at the Stuck blog so here's my layout.
