Happy New Year!

Happy 2018! Each year for the past three years I’ve picked a word at the start of the new year to hopefully guide me during the next 365 days. I’ve never actually written about my word here on the old blog – because it’s sadly been a bit neglected – but I’d thought I’d share this year. Let’s look back first… I actually remember my words from the previous years, and while I might not remember exactly why I picked them or how they showed up in my life — I can still share them with you to give you ideas in case you decide to try this for yourself. 2014 – GROW In 2014 I was really working towards building my Stampin’ Up business to full-time status so I’m sure that is largely why I selected this word. I try and pick a word that reflects both my business and my personal life, though, so I imagine I was trying to grow in some way personally, too — and I’m sure it wasn’t in the waist! Ha! 2015 – SHINE For 2015, I was looking to really shine — I wanted to better my best in everything I did,

Goodbye 2013… Hello 2014!

Happy New Year! I tried to type up this post before 2013 actually ended, but blogger was just not cooperating! So I had a couple extra days to marinate on 2013 and what I want for 2014. I find it rather interesting that this year I’ve been really hesitant to make any plans/resolutions/goals for the new year. For those of you that have followed this blog, you may know that this is very uncharacteristic of me! I usually love a new year and am all about setting some goals and talking about the prospect of a clean slate. Interestingly enough, I’m also having a hard time recalling 2013. It’s honestly as if it went by without me realizing it! Strange. Nonetheless, I have come up with a few things that were highlights for 2013 (thanks to being able to review my blog) and I thought I’d share them with you (I personally love to read New Year posts — I find it fascinating to read other people’s highlights and goals… but feel free to skip to another post if this doesn’t interest you.) Anyway, highlights of 2013: Leadership Conference is always a highlight of my year — I leave for

Happy New Year

I say it every year…. I love a New Year. You can get rid of any negatives from the previous year, build on any successes and best of all wipe the slate clean if you choose to! Of course, you can do this at any time of year, but for some reason for me I always find the beginning of the year very inspiring. I’ve been scouring all my favorite blogs this past week taking in others’ resolutions, “One Word” picks, and plans for 2011. I have to be honest that I haven’t really been able to pinpoint my thoughts on this year… so no real insightful thinking to share with you today… but perhaps in the not too distant future… 😉 I figured since I can’t really collect all my goals, aspirations and desires for 2011 yet, I’d share my favorite projects from 2010. Have a look back… January: While I didn’t actually create this layout in January… I made it to commemorate my first trip to Leadership, which was in Phoenix, Arizona last year. This was a big milestone for me for a couple of reasons — first it was my first flight alone ever! (Not necessarily something
