2009 GOAL #4

A dear friend of mine who has a terrific blog dedicated to the sweet crafting she does has - as many bloggers do - a giant list of her favorite websites posted for the clicking.  Well, I clicked.  I clicked all of them.  Don't judge - I had a lot of time over my winter break to peruse the net in my precious, non-family (no offense) spare time.  She has a delightfully wide array of fun web spots (as I knew she would - she's, open to neat stuff?) on the left side of her blog.  

One of the links took me to a site about letterboxing.  I clicked.  I was intrigued.  I was inspired.  I decided that in my overall goal to further explore my creative self, I was going to throw caution to the wind and jump right in.  I made this one of my goals for 2009:   start letterboxing as a new hobby.  

I think it will be cute fun.  I like to hike.  I like to craft.  I like to solve things.  Combine the three and you've got an interesting pastime.  That's it.  I'm doing it.  I have to.  I made it a goal. 

It sounds like I'm talking myself into this, huh?  It's probably because I've got about a million concerns on my mind that are literally all over the map and this just seems like one more thing.  Damn it!  I thought this one would be one of the easier ones this year.  Maybe I'll try it and decide I don't like it.  That would be easy enough.

Hey Gina, I'm so glad you wanted to give me props...and that you had fun clicking all of my links...I do the same dorky thing all the time, and hours later I wonder where all my time went.

I also am intrigued by Letterboxing, but haven't tried yet. But I will! So, I think it's a great resolution. It will get you outside, and there's never a bad excuse to tromp around in the outdoors.

Oh yeah, I'll send you the kitty pattern too...and a few others.

That sounds like fun. I am intrigued and I will have to read more about this.

So I read up on letterboxing and asked Haley what she thought and she's so excited to go on a "treasure hunt" LOL

I'm stealing a goal from you and I'm going to take the kids out letterboxing. There is one listed right down the road from my house and there are like 30 in Michigan near where we used to live. It should be fun!

Thanks for sharing!
