Resolutions - Resolutions!





(sisters photo - reminds me of the wonderful blogging sisters! graphic from the graphic fairy)

Thought I would tell you a little something else I want to do this year.  Leah from CED blog wrote about Christine Kane, and shared Christines blog.  I have enjoyed reading and have decided to choose a word to help guide me this year as I continue in the CED challenge. 


I have chosen the word "continue" (below is the dictionary definition of the word).  Definitions 1 and 2 have really spoken to me.  I am very good at beginning . . .not so good at going on.  My self esteem gets in the way and says "this isn't good enough, so lets quit.  Can't get "hurt" if you quit"  Such a hard thing to break, and yet I want to make it my goal this year to continue even if I don't like my creation, or if I feel foolish all of the sudden.  It is a good word, and to think of the definition each day, will help me to keep on going on.  *smile*

Thank you Leah, and Thank you Christine for the inspiration to try!

Crafty Storage

I have finally some free time, kinda. *smile* I am off for winter break from school, so can sit and enjoy some computer time that isn't school related.

I have been wanting to share for some time a cute storage idea that was posted Whip Up. (A really great blog dedicated to handcrafted community!)Isn't this creative! I have always used any containers including ones like these for storage, I just never thought to pretty them up so nicely! Guess what I will be doing after the holidays??
