THOUGHTS FOR THE NEW YEAR!
Every year as long as I can remember I've felt obligated to make new years resolutions...and for the most part many never met completion. I don't so much remember what the resolutions were, I just remember the fact they did not get to the finish line! As I became an adult, I tried to make more realistic resolutions that could be met, so I would not feel like I failed! As life moved on as a wife and Mother, I cannot remember many resolutions becoming reality! Are you with me? So for this year I want to totally focus NOT on completed projects or a completed list, I want to focus more on the intent, the steps along the way instead of the very end result! Acknowledging all the while I will get to the end result I want to achieve, but allowing myself the slack of the time it takes to get there! Phew, my shoulders feel lighter already! I have to say it's taken many years of life to get to this more healthy realistic approach! Maybe because this past year has certainly presented itself with many obstacles...I will not get into personal details here, as my family is very private. But I would covet your prayers for my husbands battle with Crohn's disease, our daughter's families, along with the new babies that we welcomed in the past 3 months. (I will share photos soon) There have been many hours spent this past year in hospitals, and I know this year may present the same.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
For all the Christmas cards and wishes you sent me, I'm sorry to say I did not get any mailed! Please forgive me, and know I treasure every creation that you sent my way! It has been said so many times before, the friendships that have been formed among this papercrafting community are priceless, for me a life line. This year, I plan on being more intentional at sending those cards I make to more of you!!! Thank YOU from my heart!
- I will start tomorrow with a review of my favorite creations from 2010! I never have had just one favorite but this past year I did! Can you guess which one? If you guess correctly I have a special gift just for you! Leave your answer in a comment with your email address! Fun!!!
- Stay tuned for Sharon Johnson's The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store update coming soon! She has been working behind the scenes and I can't wait to see her newly improved store!
