My Personal Challenges....

A few months ago... I was checking out some blogs... and came across this list of 100 things to do..... my sister edited the list.. so I borrowed a few ideas from her... and also changed a few things to suit my needs.

I am really struggling keeping up with this blog and hope that maybe this will encourage me to post on here on a more regular basis.

I am going to use this list for pages that I complete... not pages that I do for a swap (unless I use them for myself) or have received in a swap.

When/if I complete this list, I'm going to reward myself.. I'm not sure what the reward will be yet.. but I'll update this when I decide.
