Brand New Journal for 2016!

createwithcheryl 2016 journal

I made this brand new journal last week & hope to use it all year.  My friend & upline, Anne, came over & we crafted & brainstormed.  My word for this year is FOCUS.  I tend to overschedule myself and get stressed out.  I’m hoping I can FOCUS on the thing I’m doing, or on the person I’m with.

I’m mainly thinking about my mom.  She lives in my cottage & has recently stopped driving.  So that means she depends on me a  lot.  Sometimes trips into town with her take a long time & I’m impatiently thinking of all the other things I need to be doing.  I’ll bet a lot of you would love to have this problem & have your  mom with you!  I’m so fortunate to have my mom close by!

Be present.  Or be a present to the person I’m with.

Season’s Greetings!

Dec 2015

Happy December!  This month I used one of my favorite stamp sets:  Work of Art!  So simple to make a pretty card using this set.  My colors are Real Red, Crumb Cake, and Wild Wasabi.  The branch is from An Open Heart.

Dec 2015 (2)

Be sure and SLOW DOWN a bit this month and enjoy your family & friends and be sure to relax with a little stamping!  I have to tell myself this every day.  And focus on the “reason for the season”…JESUS!  We have so much to be thankful for!

Can’t wait to see what Anne & Crystal have done this month!

Have a Merry Christmas and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
