Michelle Ventura | 116 comments Going to try to be better at keeping track of everything this year. I have a tendency to get into reading and forget the tracking :)

This year I will be doing the following challanges:
Popsugar, ATY, Harry Potter World Tour, Lets Turn Pages, Cover Colors, and other quarterly challenges as they come up.
