Inspiring Words 2013

13 January 2013

I am really excited for 2013!  I have many things I want to do this year:  Be healthy, be creative, be  patient, be kind, be helpful, be successful, be inspiring, be sparkly.... I look at 2013 as a fresh start!  With that said.... I have found that two words were instantly "ringing" with me at the start of this new year....INSPIRE and SPARKLE.  These two words carry a lot of meaning for me.

In addition to all the things I want to "be" this year....This year I promise to inspire and to be inspired!

This year I promise to SHOW MY SPARKLE and help others to do the same.

What are your words of the year?  What inspires you?  How do you show your sparkle?

Valentine's Day Inspiration

**WARNING...Blogger is being wonky as I am drafting this post...Not looking as it should....

 Hard to believe my last post was two months ago...I decided to take some time off to enjoy the holiday season with my two little girls, and my husband. I didn't want to miss a single Christmas tv movie, a Santa sighting, a holiday craft or popcorn ball. I stopped everything related to party paper scissors. I think that was exactly what I needed!
Now... I am back. I am refreshed. I am inspired. I am ready to try new things. I am ready to sparkle! Here's wishing you a peaceful, prosperous, healthy and fun 2013!  Have fun! Be inspired! Show your sparkle!
 So, I am gearing up for Valentine's Day. I want to do a little Vday card making party shoot and have been thinking about what is inspiring me this February...This is what I have come up with...Let me know what you think? What is inspiring you for Valentine's Day? What is inspiring you day to day? Let me know in the comments section below.
