I just want to give a big hug and thank you to everyone who commented on my Life resolution. Almost a month in and I'm still going strong! I thought I would answer a few questions y'all had here. I do the online Weight Watchers. I don't go to any meetings. My mom has done fabulous on it so she is a great support. I think the biggest change I made that works so well for me is I eat 5 small meals a day. I got a treadmill and I look forward to working out everyday. That's just crazy for me! I have so much energy now!
I'm happy to say my muse has come back and my creativity is better than ever! I cant wait to show you some pretties I'm working on.
I also have been wanting to make books for awhile. That's why I bought the Zutter Bind it All. You can read about it here. After a lot of practice and screwed up books I am finally happy to announce to can find my books in my shop. I'm calling them "Gathered Fragments Journals". Because they are very time consuming to create I will only make a few at a time. See you soon!

Kits Are In!

The Valentine Cupcake Cottage Kit is available in my shop. I will be listing them in small bunches to make it easier to get them shipped.

A New Year A New Me

I know its so cliche but its true. I have never made a News Year resolution but this year I'm making a New Life resolution. In a way I can narrow it down to a word. Last year I chose the word GRACE. I'm happy to say I feel like I lived up to it. This years word is Purify. I want to purify my life, soul, mind, body, and home of negative clutter. First on my list was my home. I can happily say one pickup load donated and a dumpster full of trash later and I'm well on my way to purifying our home.
I also started Weight Watchers and started working out everyday. This is HUGE for me. I have been overweight my whole life. A month ago I was at my heaviest. Diabetes and heart problems run in my family. At age 32 its no longer a choice. I have to get healthy.After just a few weeks I feel wonderful, have lost weight, and feel a true change in how I think.
I'm also getting rid of negative emotions and thoughts that have plagued me for so long. I have a really lovely, blessed life. Its time to let the past go and enjoy what I have.
The only downside to all this change is my muse, mojo, and creativity seems to have left. It still shows up in spurts but not much. I'm taking it as a sign to put my energy into changing myself. So that's why my shop is not brimming with stuff and why I haven't been around blogland much. Thank you so much to everyone who wished me a good year. I have a feeling its going to be the best ever!
