My Word for 2015

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2015, where have the years gone?
Do you choose a word for inspiration every year?  For 2014, my word was “Grow”, and I did plenty of that this year both personally and professionally.
I learned new skills, gained more confidence in myself and started trusting my instincts more.  All of these things helped my business grow in so many ways, sales, products, subscribers and clients.  Now I’m taking that growth to the next level and my word for 2015 is Believe.  I will “Believe” in myself that I can do all I set out to do.
My word for 2015 - Believe

That’s the word I’ve chosen, Believe.  It just seemed to be popping up everywhere I looked and It really spoke to me.  I created this art journal page with DecoArt Media Line Misters and Fluid Acrylics, Balzer Designs Weekly Circles, Crafter’s Workshop Mini Time Travel, Dylusions Number Jumble, and ArtistCellar’s Pocket Stencils.

Sometimes when you are starting new ventures, fear can keep you from giving it your all.  But, believing in yourself, your instincts and your talent will get you through those moments.

Christmas Tags

Time is going by so fast and Christmas is just 3 weeks away!  When I think of it that way, I have to admit that I get a little bit of anxiety!  But, I want to make sure I take the time to make the Holidays as special and personal as I can for my family.  My family is use to getting handmade and personal gifts from me every year.  This year I will be adding another way of personalizing by making gift tags that they can keep beyond Christmas day.  These tags can be used as book markers, tree ornaments, or kept as mementos.
