Happy New Year 2013!

I have a super quick post today because I'm on the road headed back to the great state of VA.  It was time to say goodbye to my family and head back to reality.  I'm wiping my tears and holding my head high.  It's never easy to say goodbye to my family.  I just said, "see you soon!"  

Last night I didn't create a new resolution for the new year.  I decided not to because I never keep them and it stresses me out. Yep, it does!  Instead, our family decided to pick a word that we can build on throughout the year.  A word to keep us focused and remind us each day of the year.  I love all the words chosen.  I plan to make something in MDS to help remind the kids of their word.  

My Word…. Strong! 

It has many meanings and I will be sharing more about my word later with you.  I'm strong in many ways but so weak in others. I want to change that this year in many facets of my life.

I literally cannot WAIT for this Spring Mini to go live.  I'm SO ready to get busy with these great products.  Hearts a Flutter is one of my favorites and the Framelits that coordinate are just AMAZING!!  You can see all kinds of products used on this little card.  

Another quick MDS sample today…

I'm still plugging along on my December Daily album.  I won't lie.  I'm behind.  I spent my valuable time with my family with no regrets.  The only problem is I've been shooting a TON of pics.  I have a lot to add to my album.  YIKES. 

You can view all the supplies for this layout HERE.

  1. I’m thinking this fabulous card issue with new stuff from the spring mini. How lucky you are already able to see the new stuff and use it! Only another day I think before it goes live! Hope you had a great holiday. It’s always hard to say goodbye to family. My daughter has been home since Dec 16th and she leaves again on the 10th. There’s going to be some hard times there for sure.

    I didn’t make any New Years resolutions either, cause I think they’re too difficult to live with on a daily basis. I didn’t choose a word either, so I figure I’ll take each day as it comes and hope for the best!

  2. ohhh i love the card!!! and your layout is sweet.  i like the idea of choosing a word … i just can't choose one.  how'd ya narrow it down!  happy new year!
