Some crafty fun for me!

I am TRYING, really TRYING to relax more and do more of the things I love.  My One Little Word for this year is...


JOY

I know I will not be perfect at it, but it is something to focus on and grow in for 2015.  It is my heart's desire to not only choose joy in all circumstances, but for me to be flowing over with it...to share joy with everyone I touch.

Since I get joy from being creative, I made some time to make a few things the last couple of days.  I am still getting caught up (home and work wise) from being sick all last month, but this is important, too.  

My first layout of 2015:  I wanted to keep it simple and just enjoy the process for once.  No preset plan or reason for making it.  Just letting it happen.  I decided to skip a photo, since that would be more work and pulled a Project Life card to serve that purpose.  My goal was to sum up last year and look forward to what this year will bring.  I love how cheery it is and the paper is one that I adore, but was always afraid to use.




I tackled a Project Life layout, too.  I thought it would be fun to make a page to share my goals, one little word and a family crest of what I want for us this year.   And what do you know...Counterfeit Kit Challenge had a challenge up to scrap with a list.  I did a challenge without even knowing it!  LOL






**I LOVE this crest idea..it was such a joy to put together what I want for us for this year...to travel more (mostly day trips), play more together as a family and freshen up our house and yard together.


I pulled together a quick card, too, while I was at it.


Alright, time to run...I hear some supplies calling!  What to do first?!

Love seeing your list idea and crest. I pulled my "Goals for 2015" sheet and trying to decide how to use it. I, also, really like the word that you chose for the year! Great projects!

She's baaa-aack! So happy at your JOY in crafting again, and in looking forward to a great year :) Your crest reminded me that I designed one for us a long time ago - wonder what dark corner it's hiding in?
