Git-R-Done Challenge




Hey you guys. It's Jenny stopping by the Blog Party to ask you to join me in a little something. I'm the Queen of starting something I'm really loving and feeling inspired by and not getting it done. Or, worse yet, planning something amazing while laying awake at 3 am and not even starting it. I'd like you to come along with me and finish something YOU want to get done.

Like some of you, I was inspired by Ali Edward's December Daily she posted on her blog in December 2008. I was so loving it, that this past November, I built the guts of one, with the hopes of completing it this past December. Guess what? It's still not done. By the time the 8 Christmas trees were packed up at my house the Daily sat unfinished. So sad, such a great snippet of our life was sitting undone. This past Friday I dragged it to a crop with friends...
and almost finished it. I'm going to journal it and add a couple of missing embellies before the end of the month.

What are YOU going to finish? If you'd like to join me please post here your intentions and I look forward to following your progress in our Members' Gallery. You guys can hold me to it as I post updates here and detail shots on my personal blog. I'd like to have a friend or two on this journey. Who's with me?

Ohhh...so much to finish! LOL I, too, was totally inspired by AE...I admire from afar ;) I have 3 LOs in my head...all based on the same sketch, so I hope I can get those finished!

The endless array of unfinished projects! I justify it by saying it is the process that's my passion not the product. Easier to use when I'm discussing knitting or sewing but scrapbooking finished projects are so fun to revisit - I guess the product is important, after all.

Awesome idea! I think EVERYONE has SOMETHING that they haven't finished... I think mine will be my mini book that I started two years ago and never finished... and it should be easy since I only had like 4 more pages to go! =]

I would like to finish last years summer pics, before summer arrives! :) I am the queen of picture taking.. I have WAY too many! I think it would be a good idea to finish Brit's baby book. She's going to be 11 the end of March. ;)

I would like to finish the 2 BEACHY mini books that I was just itching to have and and totally lost steam with. Wish me luck!!

This was literally one of my new years resolutions Jenny!!! I got one of the projects done in January, but I have many others just sitting around... I'm with ya girlie!! =)

I pulled out a couple of layout page kits to go ahead and assemble...resizing down to 8.5x11 to be ready for yet to be determined photos!

I have several layouts in progress, sitting on my scrap area, just awaiting time and inspiration. I am gonna go stare at them, and let them wallow in my brain, and tackle them in my next chunk of scrap time.

Definitely decorating and organizing my scrap room. I wanted redo the walls and the cabinets, the whole darn thing! And I want to get it all done within the next six months, too. All of it!!

You can count me in! I have a mini album I am making for my DH that I need to finish. I also have our wedding pictures that need to get scrapped! That's a start!

holly_m February 21, 2009 at 4:59 PM  

You inspired me to finish the last two pages of this mini book!!
