One Word 2015

Patience is my One Word for 2015.  How many times have I heard, "Patience is a Virtue"?  I've been exercising it since late August. Trying to practice self control and not complain. I know God has a plan for my life and is preparing me for my next career.  I just want to be obedient, because His promise will be fulfilled.  When I received my Spellbinder window die cut, it reminded me of a song, "God will pour you out a Window of Blessings that you won't have room to receive.  I'm claiming it.

My Mini Altered Chalkboard Easels

This is my Design Team post for Scraps of Color E:spire.  While I was going through my stash I found some 3D stickers I wanted to get rid of since I've had them over 10 years. I did what I call a 'Drive By' at Michaels which means I walk around the entire store to see what's new with no intention to purchase anything.  Walking down the $1.50 aisle I saw some mini chalkboard easels and they were the perfect choice to use them for!  The receiver will receive two pieces of chalk wrapped in jute.

Goals for 2015

Wow, my first creation for 2015 is a layout so I believe I'm off to a great start!  I'm inspired from Scraps of Color 1st challenge using a Robert Jackson digital with the word 'Cheer' in the project.  Since I don't believe in New Year Resolutions, I chose to set mini goals:  Gainful employment that will lead into my next career, A Praying Spirit, Exercising & Healthy Eating habits and one day a week for 'Me time'.
