Celebrating wins my new default

In December 2018 I did a brain dump of everything I wanted to accomplish in 2019.  I wanted to enter a new year and decade feeling strong.  That I had a handle on things moving forward and I had jettisoned everything that wasn't working for me.  That included dreams that were no longer servicing me.  … Continue reading Celebrating wins my new default

What caught my eye in the past month

During the past month I was still in Christmas mode. I treat the whole month of December as my holiday.  Events, music, crafts and whatever invites come up.  So excuse me if you find a few holidays items here! This caught my eye because in the past few years I am getting back into liking … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

Finally my word for 2020

I knew I wanted a word for 2020.  Something to commit to. To give me that little extra push when I start doubting myself. I ran through different words for the past week but nothing seemed to stick.  Nothing got me excited. A few years ago when I decided to use courage as my word … Continue reading Finally my word for 2020

2020 Instagram Challenge

A friend and I decided over pajamas, wine and appetizers to do a Christmas Instagram Challenge.  In December we posted a Christmas picture for 24 days.  My sister and a friend joined in.  It was great seeing pictures and such a diversity of them. So over the holidays we decided to do it again but … Continue reading 2020 Instagram Challenge

A word for 2020 and getting there

THE WORD....... A few years ago I had the word "courage" for my word of the year.  It felt right and throughout the year when I was starting a project the word would pop into my head, giving me that extra push to just do it.  Courage to finish. Courage to try. The word didn't … Continue reading A word for 2020 and getting there

A different type of holiday gift

I'm behind the eight ball this year with the holidays.   By this time I usually have figured out an easy craft I can semi-mass produce for friends.  Something to show I'm thinking of them.  This year nothing.  Seriously, I checked Pinterest and tons of great ideas, just nothing that I was running out to purchase … Continue reading A different type of holiday gift

Simple things – picture holder

This just seems too simple, but I wanted to catch you before the end of the year and you tossed out your daily calendars.  These calendars with the lip for the 365 pages make ideal picture holders.  It doesn't matter that they are plastic as usually your picture will cover the whole stand. I had … Continue reading Simple things – picture holder

What caught my eye in the past month

Well in the last month it was the holidays that caught my eye.  I love holiday decor. The greenery, ornaments, DIY and more. Hope it isn't over the top for you.  Enjoy. A Beautiful Mess  has a house tour that I found bright with pops of colour.  Actually I thought it looked like a happy … Continue reading What caught my eye in the past month

Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

It has been ages since I participated in stream of consciousness Saturday.  Where we are giving a prompt and just write.  For all the details head over to Linda G Hill.  This week's prompt is the word "shade." My first thought when I saw the word shade was something a co-worker and I just experienced.  You know … Continue reading Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SOCS

Just what I needed to hear

I'm sure we have all been there.  Ruminating over things not under our control.  Giving away our power and our time to someone, something, whatever, that doesn't care or we can't change no matter what is said or actions we do. I've had a few of situations come up this week. Wham right on top … Continue reading Just what I needed to hear
