Think Happy and you'll Be Happy

Wow…. It’s been way too long since I updated last.  Life seriously escapes me most days.  I wish things weren’t such a blur.  I thought I would share this wall hanging I made a while back that I haven’t posted yet.  I think I’ve struggled to share it because the message leaves me conflicted some days.  Okay…. Lots of days.  I am sure I used this message on here because I’m constantly trying to convince myself of it.  Trouble is…. It’s really NOT that easy for me.  I wish it were.  I’m not going to make this a long post because the last thing I want to do is bring anyone down or sound like a depressed mess.  But the truth is….. I still deal with it.  That nasty thing that people think you use as an excuse to treat the people you love like crap.  I am counting the days when Shane’s insurance coverage kicks in and I can get back to the Doctor.  Can’t happen soon enough. 
Smiling should never be this hard.  I like smiling.  “Smiling’s my favorite” J  
Oh….. and in case you’d like to attempt something like this yourself.  Here’s the word art I created for it.  Just save it to your computer and print it out for a card or wall hanging too.  Easy peasy!

Tag-A-Month 2013 Desk Calendar

Hey there and Happy New Year!
I've got something pretty cute to share with you.  I thought it would be fun to make myself a little desk calendar to keep track of important dates as well as any upcoming submission deadlines. 
This little calendar WON'T be crowded with all the Mom's Taxi kind of appointments.  It's supposed to stay CUTE!  HA HA!  Anyway.... I don't know about you but I just LOVE making tags.  They are so fun to make but I never know what to do with them besides stick them on packages or gifts.  So in honor of my Tag Love..... I made a special spot on this to change out a new tag each month.  Check back here the beginning of each Month this year and you can see a new tag! 
The base was made by cutting a strip of 12" cardboard and just folding it into a stand.  EASY PEASY!  Then I also created a pdf file of all the months for 2013.  If this sounds like something you'd want a copy of then shoot me an email and I will gladly send you the pdf.   
Okay.... here's my fun little project!  Happy New Year!  Hugs!
