Little Reminders Mini Scrapbook Album

The past several months I have been designing and creating Mini Scrapbook Albums.  This month I have a sweet little niece, Ava, that is turning 9 years old.  I made her a special mini album, not so much for photos, but more for a book of positive sayings that she can read when she needs a little boost of positivity, (as we all need from time to time.) In this […]

What’s Your Word for the Year?

The other night Tim asked me if I had made any New Year’s Resolutions?  I told him “no”, that I usually don’t make resolutions, however I do choose a Word for the Year that I focus on all year long.  As I explained what my Word of the Year is, he became very interested. In looking back over all my previous Words for the Year I can see a very […]

It Truly Is A Wonderful World

When was the last time you stopped to think about what a wonderful world it is that we are so blessed to live in?  It seems like so much energy is spent these days by people telling us all the negative things about our world.  What if for just a minute we turned off all the outside noise and just spend some time ourselves looking at everything that is so […]

Yes, My Dear, Dreams Really Do Come True!

Either you believe that dreams can come true or you don’t.  If you don’t, there is nothing I can say that can change that and I’m not even going to try.   It took me a really long time to figure out dreams.  I knew that I had plenty of them and more than that, I knew that I wanted them NOW!  I can’t tell you how many times I felt […]

Do You Let Procrastination Rule Over You?

I remember when I first wanted to really start my art career, it seemed liked I was struggling with procrastination almost every day.  Now that I have my art career going, it seems like I am struggling with procrastination almost every day.  You would think that this would get easier, but for me, it hasn’t. Actually, that is a good thing!  I have learned that through my times of procrastination, […]

Prove Them Wrong

  For many of us it all started at a very early age… people telling us what we should do with our lives.  Most of us have had a dream of doing something only to have someone come along and step all over it telling us all the reasons it won’t work.  While at the same time telling us what we should be doing instead.  This drives me crazy!  I […]
