New Year, New Challenges

It's crazy to realize that more than six months have passed since I began this blog and have only gotten ONE post done. That's half a year!! So many events have happened during that time - my fibromyalgia progressed rapidly, my mother had a heart attack; and between just those two life-changers, I gave up my full-time job where I've been employed the last 11 years.

I still have my booth at Good Old Days Antiques & More in Rosebud, MO; which carries mostly scrapbook supplies. I'd like to build up the selection and possibly have an online offering. I have lots of ideas of how I'd like to grow Memory Lane Treasures and I plan to share those ideas with you - my friends, followers and customers - in hopes that you'll share your comments and suggestions. The challenge will be to stay focused, build on my strengths and not get off on too many tangents!

Since photos play such a monumental role in our lives and scrapbooking, I came across a "Photo-A-Day Challenge" hosted by The Idea Room. I've decided to participate in the challenge, but not get bent out of shape if I miss a day, or two... or several. This will help me to capture more of the every day moments and should provide for some great scrapbooking ideas! Maybe it's something you'd like to try?

The word for January 1 is "Goal," so here's my first photo. Like so many others, one of my goals for 2014 is to exercise. Yoga is supposed to be great for fibromyalgia; however, we'll have to see if I'm able to do some serious dancing with Shaun T's workouts without them killing me. I love to dance, so it won't feel like exercise to me!
