Challenge Day 3

I changed up a bit seeing everyone working with other mediums made want to get my water colors out and play a bit. So I know it makes it hard to read but here is the journaling:
I accomplished one more day of cleaning and picking up. It does make a difference. MY husband and children are noticing the difference too. It was really nice to eat at the table last night.

Seth woke up during the night it reminded me of when I was a child and would get into bed with my parents. My mom would stroke my hair until I fell asleep. NowI do that for my children. Life does take many twists and turns.

The adage when life gives you lemons make lemonade. So it is with a problem, make it into something to nourish and renew yourself. Don't let go to waste because you will also waste that opportunity to grow and become more, every experience brings something to you.

I think that this quote sums up what I have always believed but lost somewhere along the way. I always sais I wanted to live with "No Regrets". I guess I should revisit that philosophy.

Dream Big
as your Heart
can be
This is what I think when I read this. I have forgotten so much of what I learned when I was young. Your heart should be full of dreams. You are only limited by your dreams so we can all do big things and more then we think we can.

day 2 of 21 day Challenge

I enjoyed this page too....keeping it simple and consistent. I am also doing thoughts about the quotes of the day too. I might just do that as blog entry as well. so another day of picking up and cleaning things up has gone well. I hope to be able to do these as second nature at the end of this.

21 Day Challenge--Day 1

I enjoyed doing this page. It is very simple but I want the journaling to be the main thing. It was fun to get out the markers and the stamps and play again. This is like a treat after doing my challenge. I can't wait until tomorrow's inspiration.

Look at what I did!!!!

Image hosting by PhotobucketI went and got 3 books coil bound.  It is so nice to be able to lay this book flat to work from.  I can't wait to put it into practice.  It only cost a little over $10 to do 3 books.  I think this is so worth it.  I went to Officemax their copy center there.  It didn't take to long either about 30 mins or so. So I am looking forward to getting more of my books done like this.  If you like this go for it,  it is so easy and well worth it.  I hated that the books always would flop closed or you had to bend back the pages to see what you wanted to work on.

Interesting far..

Well, March has been trying to say the least. My dh has been in and out of the hospital for a heart condition that he has had for some time. So hopefully, next week we will get more answers than we have right now.

I did get to start on my sweater Kal for the year. I am really liking the Andean Silk from Knit picks. I love the color Cranberry too. I hope to get my other things finished up this week too. I made some knit markers last weekend too. They came out really pretty. I need to get some more circles to make some more though.

Scrapbooking I haven't done much but think about getting some books coil bound. That would really help to work from them. I have been working on my swap items but that is it. I really need to clean my room and organize it better so I can work up there. I better get going and clean the house some and clean my scrap room too. I also want to get some knitting done too.
