I am just connecting here once again. I'm so sorry to not be more attentive. There is SOOOO much going on in my life. Funerals, traveling, home projects, new business ventures, volunteer efforts, working full time outside the home, and just generally being overwhelmed! I am hoping next week will be the "magic" week of getting my office set up! Then I can BEGIN CRAFTING once again! I am so excited about that...... I think I need to create a weekly calendar to give myself that permission to be creative again! Like scheduling work... I need to schedule creative time! I will be sharing MORE VERY SOON!!!!!!
I took part in a month long challenge. I have had WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) several years ago. In the past five years, I've had a regain and want to kick it to my past once again. SO, in this month long process I have refound ME... and how important I AM! I have learned that if I don't do things for myself it just won't be accomplished! I AM WORTHY! I AM IMPORTANT! I AM VALUABLE! I AM WORTH IT!
The self talk/brain talk is difficult to overcome at times. My life story that has made me who I am is important, but some aspects of it need to be left in the past and they can't define me. I am a grown adult woman now (just turned 50 a few months ago) and am reminded that the CHOICES I make are my own. They can not be controlled by situations that happened over 30 years ago!
I decided to create these pieces of wordart to print and tape to my mirrors and doors and scale and any place else I want... They are important reminders that I need to use for my daily head talk! This step is just as important as realizing a particular comfort food is not needed to actually find comfort!!! There are more options to finding comfort and getting value! FOOD IS NOT IT!
These are four separate pieces of word art that you can decorate or alter in any way you want to make it special for yourself. I have them saved as JPG, PNG and PSP files. I am sharing here at JPG... If you want the other files, you will need to leave a message with your email address and I will send it to you.
Creating with wordart, images, papers, fills, and inspiration from Paulette at Create with TLC makes my creating easy! You can print and create layered scrapbook layouts, greeting cards, gifts and more! She is doing a lot of beautiful mixed media creations you have just got to check out! Head over there and see what her creative mind can generate! Great inspirations to all of us!
Here are TWO printable bookmarks I put together. You can print them to be 2 1/2" wide and 8" long. Use a paper punch to punch out the eyelet at the top and add a tassel. You can also laminate in order to make them stronger and more durable!

To add to my promise of BE A RAINBOW TO SOMEONE'S CLOUD thoughts, I want to share a RAK (random act of kindness) printable. This is a cookie pouch designed to hold individually wrapped cookies like an Oatmeal Cream Pie or other similar size. Even homemade cookies will work if you roll or measure to fit the dimensions.
Sometimes a little sugar is needed to add a smile to someone's face. A little act of kindness can lift a spirit higher than imaginable. Share some love and BE A RAINBOW!

We have adopted a new fur baby to our family! He is so fun! He is a gentle giant! We named him Merlot! His birthday is July 8, 2015. So many people have asked about him so I thought I'd make a scrapbook page to show him off! Puppies of any breed grow so fast! But with Merlot, I am shocked at how much he has grown... long legs, big paws, long body..... He is half yellow lab and half English Shepherd.
The word art that I used is from Paulette at Create with TLC. She has given me permission to offer it to you for free! So please save it to your own files but be sure to head over to her BLOG and leave her some love and show appreciation! She also has a fabulous STORE to get tons of wordart for your projects! Check them out!
