I am behind on one of my scrappy projects. For some reason my mojo was sucked from me and I can't for the life of me finish this project. So what did I do this weekend? I put my project aside and decided to scrap something new. Sometimes it works and mojo returns or sometimes I sit there waiting for an idea to spark. Luckily mojo was not hiding too far away. He came back and I am so happy about that! Here is the layout I did this weekend for the Sassafras Challenge over at 2 Peas.

Now I am just crossing my fingers that mojo sticks around do I can finish my project I am behind on!

Happy Monday everyone!

Here are the rules:

1)Follow the hop in order(go back and start at Kim's blog if you are starting here).

2)Leave a comment on each blog showing that you have picked up your letter from their sneak.

3)Collect all the letters and unscramble the word.

4)Leave a comment on the last blog of the hop on Thursday, revealing the secret word, and you may be one of 3 lucky winners to win $10 off their kit purchase!

My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge

For months now I have been eyeing the sketches over at the My Mind's Eye blog and just never really had the time to participate in the challenges. This time around I actually was able to play along! Here is the sketch and my take on it.

When it comes to sketches, I never tend to follow them to a "t" but that's ok. Everyone interprets things differently and that is what makes this so much fun!

Happy Thursday everyone!

In 2011, I want to...

Blog more. Ive been such a sporadic blogger. I want to change that and try to blog at least 3 times per week, maybe more.

Stop getting so frustrated when the girls are misbehaving. They are kids after all. I'll just have to remember to breathe and take it one day at a time.

Start exercising again. I've slacked off and it's time to jump back on the horse again.

Do more arts and crafts with the girls. I want to not only create fun things with them, but also build happy childhood memories for them to cherish.

Learn how to shoot in manual mode. I have been using the AV mode. It's time to let go of the safety net and explore!

Until later!

One Little Word

Before I start talking about my word for the year, I just have to toot my own horn for a second. My "Birdie Feeders" layout, which was created for the current Noel Mignon challenge, is featured on the Crate Paper blog today! I am so stinkin' excited!!!

When Ali Edwards mentioned on her blog that it was time once again to chose a word for the year, I did not have to think long. The word LIVE just popped in my head. This word is perfect for some of the goals I want to achieve for 2011.

I want to live more. I want to experience things I have not had time for or have been too chicken to try. First up is CHA Winter in Los Angeles.

I want to live for the moment. I want to be free to have fun with my girls. To show them that life can be fun, educational, and above all, full of love.

I want to stop living in the past and discover me. Last year was a year of change. This year will be a year of discovery. To live my life to it's fullest potential!

Until later!
