Looking forward to this New Year 2013! All the amazing possibilities a new year brings. Once again I find myself thinking on a new word for this year and as of yet nothing comes to mind. My word last year was Be and it was very fitting. I feel I have grown from my word and have learned a lot about myself. I will continue to just Be this year and grow with my new chosen word. Still thinking what fits... I will post it went it comes to me.
This is my Make and Take for Scrapbook Island today. I love the way the colors and the whole thing came together. The technique I am featuring is the using of Distress Stains and the new Metallic ones. Can't wait to see the turn out. Come by if you are in the neighborhood.
I was so nervous! But I did it and it was a Hugh success!!! I wasn't expecting to much. I really wanted the experience of the Boutique. My family came out and supported me. So happy that they did. Who knows maybe I will do another one. Trying to get myself out there and just do it! This was so hugh for me.... Here's to the next one : ).
This was the make and take I did at Scrapbook Island yesterday. I thought it came out very cute I must say. It was a great turn out. The ladies were all pleased with their projects. It was a success. I worried for nothing... Ha! I always over think everything.
These are a few things that I've created over the last month for gift cards. I love the Santa stamp by Tim Holtz. I also used his new Winter color Distress ink pads!! I love them. The ornament was inspired by a customer that frequents the store where I work. Her name is Emily Branch. Her design was so cute that I had to try my own version. I think her website is called Branch Out Designs. A very good card maker who is also published. One of my goals for the New Year was to do more classes. I have a few classes that I am doing this year so far and I am really liking all of them. One of my favorites is called One Little Word at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Ali Edwards is the teacher and it is really making me think about my word. My word for this year is Be. I think this reflects how I am feeling this year. Trying to go with the flow of my life. Thinking more about living here and right now. Letting go of things that don't matter and paying attention to more of the things I want out of life. I will admit it is not to easy and am hoping it will get easier.
Four days until Christmas and all thru the house.... all I see is half done decorating. Shopping isn't done and still quite a bit to do. Wow, I need another week to get it done. I am hoping to stay calm and work through it. Thinking about the New Year. What I would like to see for my family and myself? I know that in our family we have things going on and things in motion. One day at a time is all we can do. For now it's just one day at a time.
I think I'm crazy but here goes my attempt at the Ali Edwards December Daily again. I have started two of these albums and have yet to finish one .... Maybe this is my year!!!! Wish me luck. I have started with the pictures and documenting so now just putting it down on paper and printing my pics. I will post more when I have more.
It starts today!
