Hello!! I wanted to pop in today and share a card that I made a while ago!
I also wanted to have a little giveaway! I have a few mini albums that I have acquired over the past couple of years that I will not use and I thought that I should give them away here on my blog! So... see the picture below and if you are wanting to own these albums... leave me a comment and I will draw a random winner sometime on Monday, Jan 10th!
In the meantime... over the next week or two... I plan to post a few cards that I have not posted here yet. I will also post a few cards that I have had published recently! AND.... while I am doing that... I am going to be praying about what this year is going to be about for me! Any of you that have been around for a while know that I am in a constant struggle with time management and guilt! :) I am going to stay focused on getting my home in order (organized, purged, and cleaned) over the next couple of weeks. It shouldn't take that long but with an almost 4 year old under me all day.... well... it just does! :)
I want to focus on some life issues and habits that I want to change this year! I love making cards and blogging and submitting and blog hopping! But... one of my goals this year is to sleep more! I want to have more energy to play with Carver everyday and I want to get on some sort of teaching/learning schedule with C this year. My head has become too busy with thoughts of things that I 'need' to do like blogging, making cards, blog hopping, keeping up with emails, etc! And honestly... those aren't things that I 'need' to do! What I need to do is sleep and play with my son and start preparing him for school... I only have a couple of years left (he will be 6 when he starts)! I don't want to wake up in a couple of years after he has started school and regret wasting time and energy on things for me when I could have spent more of it on him and Him! He is my only one... ya know.... this time is so precious!
So... okay... enough rambling! Just letting you know what my thoughts are as we are in the start of a new year! My prayer is that God will be able to use me in the blog/card making world this year. My prayer is that I do whatever it is that He wants me to do and that I do it willingly and that I will give up this thing that I love so much if He wants my time and attention elsewhere!
Until I feel like I know for sure what I am suppose to be doing... I will be posting the cards that I mentioned before! Away from the computer... I will be working my tail off to accomplish my goals around my home and praying for direction! I pray that I will finally find this year that I can 'do it all' and do it wonderfully with God's help! That is my goal but we will see what God has in mind! :)
Love you all and thanks for listening! :)
Peace and Love!
