A Woman on a Mission

I’m so proud to be friends with Janna Hoehn, a woman from Wailea who is on a quest to find photos of every soldier who fell in Vietnam.  So far she’s been featured in over 100 newspaper stories, and has found more than 1,400 photos of service members who lost their lives.

Last time I flew to Oahu, I was surprised to see an article about Janna in the Hawaiian Airlines Magazine, Hana Hou!  Her dedication and perseverance is very inspiring to me!

Janna

So I made Janna a special card!

Here’s my patriotic Card in a Box for Janna.  She received it yesterday & said it made her day!

Card in a Box…Part 2

Yesterday I showed you the Bear in a Box we’ll be making at class this month.  You’ll have another option if you want to make an elegant Birthday Card in a Box.

I just love the “85” and the sentiments!  There are so many ways you can personalize this card to make it your own.

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.
