Leavin' on a Jet Plane

Yep, I'll be flying out tomorrow morning to California!
I am going to CHA with The Crafty Scrapper owner, Carolyn,
to buy all the fun new products for 2011.
I am a lucky lucky girl!
Only thing is I'll be leaving that crazy threesome at home...with their Dad!
Oh my, to be a fly on the wall for the next 6 days! ;))
I sure am gonna miss them, but I am going to learn and experience so much while I'm there.
Just want to say a huge THANK YOU to Carolyn for taking me with her.
Hugs to all and hopefully I can post a few pics while I'm gone.

Word for 2011


This year I am going to live my life.
I am going to enjoy each day and each moment.
I am not going to be fearful or worry about what tomorrow brings.

I know that I have grown and changed so much in the last 3 years,
but I have also worried ALOT about EVERYTHING.
It seems as though, in the last 3 months, everything in our life is settling down.
You know that saying "everything happens for a reason"?
Well, I feel like I am finally knowing the reasons for things that have happened in the last 4-5 years. Turns out, those reasons are very good!
As my oldest says..."it's all good"!
Have a beautiful day tomorrow!
Hugs, K

Happy New Year

I hope you had a wonderful New Year Celebration! I am looking foward to 2011! It is the beginning of an amazing New Year AND New Decade for our family. Last year was pretty rough, but I believe with all my heart that this new year will be wonderful. I have learned so much in the last 3 1/2 years since we moved. I have really had to be brave, try new things, and have FAITH that all would be okay.

I put up a new blinkie on my blog for The Brave Girls Soul Restoration. I haven't signed up yet, but I really think it is something that I am ready for. My job at the scrapbook store has given me a little more confidence in myself and my artistic abilities. My friends at the store are all so supportive and open that I feel so very blessed that I have been given the opportunity to work there. It is the next best thing to owning my own business (not a scrapbook store) and hopefully a stepping stone to that dream. The owner is very business savvy, yet very creative! It is a joy to go to work everyday and see what new event or idea will keep us busy and on our toes! (wink)

I did get my Etsy store started which was a goal from 2010. My little word for 2010 was "Aspire". I wanted to aspire to get some of my goals and dreams started that I have had for the past few years. The year before was "Bliss". We had been in a new town for a year and I needed to find bliss in my life. That was the year that I accepted where we were and settled into our new life. I am excited about my word this year which is.......I'll keep it for tomorrow! I'll also share my goals for this year later this week.
Hugs, K
