Greetings, friends! I've missed you! I took a few weeks off to take on the Holidays and now I'm back. I trust that this New Year is treating you well. I know that for me, 2012 had some interesting challenges that were not only met, but conquered and some that pretty much kicked my booty. But with 2013 comes much hope!
To get us started off on the New Year I thought it would be fun to take a word that you want to apply to your vision of 2013. Is it "Hope", "Happy", "Inspired" or another word that you would want to have your year ahead encompass? Once you have your word I want you to create a card or layout that showcases that word. I've chosen the word "Joyful". I used the computer to print out my word and then I used sticker letters and my own writing to fill in synonyms. This year I want to find joy in all the things I do for me and for my family. With joyfulness comes satisfaction and happiness. I took my word and framed it so I can see it all year long and remember to find joy all around me.
You can e-mail up to three entries to me to firstname.lastname@example.org. From the entries I will randomly choose a winner. That winner will earn $5 in credit to use in the new on-line store once it's up and running. I am keeping a list of winners so that we can tell you how to apply your reward. You have until Monday at 6pm to get your creations to me. I'll pick a winner and get you a new challenge next Tuesday.
I hope everyone picks a great word to aspire to in 2013 and that your "hopes" or your "happiness" or your "inspirations" are fulfilled!
