Embracing Limitless Opportunities

As i slide on into the new year, i find myself affirming - ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. And although i am still eating all the sweets leftover from the holidaze and although i continue to put off that yoga class i soooo want to get to...i am happy!  I am grateful for all that Life has to offer me and that allows me to be less fearful of the future.  I can't deny still having fears about putting my arts & crafts out there for others to see and possibly purchase, but i am certainly moving closer to the jumping off point.

I started a daily gratitude list on my iPhone that helps me to be mindful of all the Good i have in my life at any given moment. it's been really interesting to see how my personal rating of the day can initially be a 1 or 2, but after i write my list of things i'm grateful for - it usually goes up to a 3 or 4 (out of 5).

As further change develops in my life...i struggle with 'letting go' of what i don't have the answer to with the realization that the unknown will be better without my attempt to control it.  Whew!  how do i not take responsibility others reactions?  i hope by continuing to do the next right thing, i will feel as if i need to do this less and less.

i continue to take classes to broaden my crafty horizon.  i enjoy learning new ways to bring my creativity to the surface...not to mention i have SO much fun and feel fantastic!   ;-)

I just made this bag on Saturday!  Learning how to sew again at the Stitch Lab...very kewl!!!!

And back in December, I made this hand-sewn ornament.  FUN!  

until we meet again, chow fo' now ladies & gents
