(yabbadodo) is our hostess for the last Tickle of 2014!! Here's Faith's story!
RESOLUTION! WHAT RESOLUTION?
2014 is just around the corner and Trudy and Moody are in such a dither about New Years Resolutions.
Trudy thinks they are great, but Moody thinks they are a waste of time. Sooo…..rather than wasting time listening to them argue I am listing the Top 10 Resolutions for 2014 and they can comment as they like. I may be sorry for doing that. Here goes:
1: Stop smoking
: “What a great idea! It will improve health.”
: “Do you really believe everything you see on TV?”
2: Get into the habit of getting fit.
: “Fantastic idea. Can improve vitality, and overall well-being.”
: “That takes a lot of time and effort.”
3: Lose weight
: “Ooooh, that’s a really important one. It makes you feel so good.”
: “But look at all the yummy things you have to give up.”
4: Enjoy life more
: “What a positive thing to do. Focus on the good in life.”
: “I suppose, but what do you do when something goes wrong?”
5: Quit drinking
: “Yes, you want to have a healthy liver.”
: “Crazy! I have to have my milk and cookies.”
6: Organize yourself
: “How nice it would be to know exactly where you put the toothpaste.
: “You know what happens? someone comes along and messes it up.”
7: Learn something new.
: “I always wanted to learn how to make ice cream.”
: “I already know more than I want to.”
8: Get out of debt.
: “Yes! How wonderful to have no money worries.”
: “You mean I can’t buy what I want?”
9: Spend more time with family
: “I really like this one. I love my family.”
: “I already have more than enough family time.”
10: Help people
: “ That is so important. We need to help others when we see a need.”
: “Nobody ever helps me.”
Oh my, what a difference of opinions., Trudy is so positive and optimistic and Moody, well Moody is terribly negative and pessimistic. I need help to show them what great fun and wonderful results we can have with our Resolutions.
Calling all of our wonderful friends the “Teapotters”!!! After all there are 42,000 and they have made some fabulous Resolutions, so they will have lots of ideas.
We need to make cards that show what our resolution is for 2014 or one we have done before. Bring exercise equipment, menus, school books, bank books, fun family times, etc. Use images, sayings, songs. Just let yourself go and have fun!
EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
Extra cookies for having the words Happy New Year somewhere on the card.

This week our destination is each other! See Post #387
in the Destination Station thread.
Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.
It is our goal to surprise each and every Teapotter that is participating in this monthly card swap and send their card to in this monthly Tickle a Teapotter card swap with a handmade card from another Teapotter! You know, give them a little tickle!
To accomplish that I have started this new thread (link to counting thread here) Tickle a Teapotter ~ MMTPT283 Resolution! What Resolution? in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions.
When you receive your card from a Fellow Teapotter, please send a pm to that person so they know their card has been received or post a comment in the Tell a Teapotter About Your Tickle
thread! Just a little Teapot Tuesday Tickle a Teapotter Etiquette!
Here is Faith's card: MMTPT283, Resolution 2014
Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #283 Challenge Gallery
Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT283 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!
Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!
