Believe – One Little Word

One little Word – Vision Board

This year I decided that I would do the One Little Word course with Ali Edwards, I have started it before, a very long time ago but this year I plan to finish it! I do some years have a word that I am focusing on without doing anything positive with it, so this year I thought that I would give it a go.

The prompt for February was to create a vision board and this is mine.


As you can tell my word for this year is BELIEVE one of the things that I am practising this year is to improve my hand writing (I need to improve all of my writing, and grammar and spelling :P)

So I have used an ATC card and written my word and others that have been speaking to me. I have edged the card with an ink pad, I have used the same green ink pad to edge most of my panels.

This is a photograph that inspires belief that anything is possible.

I spotted this little flower as I was getting into my car one morning. It is growing out of the tarmac on our drive. Yes it is very weedy, and if that doesn’t instil hope that anything can happen then nothing will.

Somewhere I plan to return to.

This photograph was taken last June at sunset on a beach that I plan to return to. The other beach is my regular walking place, east facing so a place to see sunrises.

I BELIEVE I will return to walk at sunset…..

A Blast from the Past

It always amazes me when people say that they have tidied there craft room, mine is never tidy. I do try but I get side tracked by all the interesting things! I found this today.

and I still think that it is rather nice!

I made this in a Fancy Pants workshop at CHA, and yes it was CHA it is so long ago. (Craft and Hobby Association in the USA). Nice to see that they are a company that is still out there and they still have some nice things.

The words still speak to me.

The words still seem important to remember. I’m off to play some more, and perhaps do some more tidying!

Have a great weekend and I hope that you get some crafting time.
