Hello 2017....

Happy New Year friends. It's a new year so that means new goals for 2017. First of all I would like to do a little introduction for my new readers here at Lydia's Craft & Creations.

I’m Lydia Gibson, a 15 year old creative teenager who has a huge passion in documenting her every day. I live with my mum, dad and younger sister in a small country town in south-east Queensland, Australia. I was first introduced to the scrapbooking industry at a young age from my scrapbooking mum, starting with stamping and that’s how I got to what I love to do today. I currently love to document my everyday through my love of photography with Project Life, Traditional 12x12 layouts, Mixed Media and lots more. I am currently on wo design teams. I am designing for Helmar and The Scrappery Kit Club. I have also previously been on five DT's as well as been Guest Designer for two company's and have also been featured in an online magazine and on a Podcast.
The two company's I am designing or in 2017 are:
Now for my goals for 2017. This coming year is big for me as it is the start of my final two years of high school so I am planning on FOCUSing more on that than my creative side. Although I will be doing a few more things this year on my blog (fingers crossed). Also with the word FOCUS in capital letters I have decided to continue with my OLW from last year for this year.
This year  will be FOCUSing on finishing my 2016 Project Life albums which I have come to the decision to have a PL Gap Year this year. I will continue PL in 2018 to document my final year of High School. I have also started something a little different and doing Stitch A Day on a embroidery hoop which I can't wait to see it at the end of the year. I will be mainly FOCUSing on 12x12 layouts this year.
My plan for my blog this year is that I am going to be blogging every Monday with my Design Team projects from The Scrappery that I post over on their blog every Sunday. I will also be blogging my Helmar projects the day after they have been posted over on their blog too.

So the schedule I will be implementing this year is:
Sunday - Stitch A Day: I will share my 7 stitches from the week with a blog post
Monday - The Scrappery Kit Club: I will share my weekly project that I have crated with The Scrappery Kits
I will share my Helmar projects too when it is my turn on heir blog.
I may even share the odd PL layout also.
And on the first of everyone I will have a blog post to look back on the previous month of my creations from that month. This with include 12x12 and maybe even some of my catch up 2016 Project Life. 
So that my scrappy friends is my goal for my blog this year. Hopefully over the next two weeks before school goes back I can get in a routine of posting here. I will be back tomorrow to share my first Scrappery creation of the year from last week.
