New Ventures

GOOD MORNING!!

I am just connecting here once again.  I'm so sorry to not be more attentive.  There is SOOOO much going on in my life.  Funerals, traveling, home projects, new business ventures, volunteer efforts, working full time outside the home, and just generally being overwhelmed!  I am hoping next week will be the "magic" week of getting my office set up!  Then I can BEGIN CRAFTING once again!  I am so excited about that......  I think I need to create a weekly calendar to give myself that permission to be creative again!  Like scheduling work... I need to schedule creative time!  I will be sharing MORE VERY SOON!!!!!!

I AM WORTHY!!! Free Wordart

I took part in a month long challenge.  I have had WLS (Weight Loss Surgery) several years ago.  In the past five years, I've had a regain and want to kick it to my past once again.  SO, in this month long process I have refound ME... and how important I AM!  I have learned that if I don't do things for myself it just won't be accomplished!  I AM WORTHY!  I AM IMPORTANT!  I AM VALUABLE!  I AM WORTH IT! 

The self talk/brain talk is difficult to overcome at times.  My life story that has made me who I am is important, but some aspects of it need to be left in the past and they can't define me.  I am a grown adult woman now (just turned 50 a few months ago) and am reminded that the CHOICES I make are my own.  They can not be controlled by situations that happened over 30 years ago! 

I decided to create these pieces of wordart to print and tape to my mirrors and doors and scale and any place else I want...  They are important reminders that I need to use for my daily head talk!  This step is just as important as realizing a particular comfort food is not needed to actually find comfort!!!  There are more options to finding comfort and getting value!  FOOD IS NOT IT!

These are four separate pieces of word art that you can decorate or alter in any way you want to make it special for yourself.  I have them saved as JPG, PNG and PSP files.  I am sharing here at JPG...  If you want the other files, you will need to leave a message with your email address and I will send it to you. 

REMEMBER
YOU ARE WORTHY!!!!!!











HAPPY SUNDAY!
RhondaSue


PS... Thank you so very much to NIKKI MASSIE

BE A RAINBOW cookie pouch

~~  BE A RAINBOW  ~~
COOKIE POUCH
FREE PRINTABLE

To add to my promise of BE A RAINBOW TO SOMEONE'S CLOUD thoughts, I want to share a RAK (random act of kindness) printable.  This is a cookie pouch designed to hold individually wrapped cookies like an Oatmeal Cream Pie or other similar size.  Even homemade cookies will work if you roll or measure to fit the dimensions.  

Sometimes a little sugar is needed to add a smile to someone's face.  A little act of kindness can lift a spirit higher than imaginable.  Share some love and BE A RAINBOW!

Have a blessed day!

PUPPY LOVE!!

We have adopted a new fur baby to our family!  He is so fun!  He is a gentle giant!  We named him Merlot!  His birthday is July 8, 2015.  So many people have asked about him so I thought I'd make a scrapbook page to show him off!  Puppies of any breed grow so fast!  But with Merlot, I am shocked at how much he has grown... long legs, big paws, long body.....  He is half yellow lab and half English Shepherd. 

The word art that I used is from Paulette at Create with TLC.  She has given me permission to offer it to you for free!  So please save it to your own files but be sure to head over to her BLOG and leave her some love and show appreciation!  She also has a fabulous STORE to get tons of wordart for your projects!  Check them out!


Click on the wordart for it to open in a new window and save it to your computer.  

Have a great weekend!

BAKING UP A HOLIDAY BLOG HOP

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I used to do a LOT of baking and cooking for all the holidays, but especially Christmas!  The last few years it has become less and less and less...  so far this year, NOTHING.  Which as I sit here and type makes me very sad!  So maybe with this blog hop and all the creative inspirations, my desire to do more will come back!  

Baking and cooking are two of my favorite things to do!  And spending time with family and friends is another favorite thing!  So I decided to create an invitation to a CHRISTMAS BRUNCH!  I'm thinking about theme options:

PAJAMAS and PANCAKES
JINGLE and MINGLE
EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY
TREE and TREATS

But, in order to even carry out a theme and choose decorations or menu, you have to INVITE your guests!  So, Here is a vintage theme invite you can save and print for your Brunch!  Just click on it to open in a new window and then save it to your own computer.

Be sure to visit each stop on this HOP because 
Paulette at Create with TLC
has shared LOTS of wonderful images and each of the
Design Team members is sharing a different one!

Hetty at CRAFT CHAOS

THANK YOU Paulette for so many wonderful images to use ...  not just on this hop, but always!  You are very generous and giving!  I hope you feel the love from everyone enjoying all of your creative shares!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!

VACATION TIME!!!! Blog Hop

VACATION TIME IS HERE

I've been able to do some considerable traveling with my husband since Sept 26, 2015.  We went to New Zealand for two weeks, then on to Australia for 6 weeks!  We were in Chicago, then two places in Pennsylvania, then home for a bit.  We've been to Florida in February and made it to South Carolina in less than 24 hours before the birth of our second grandson.  We have been to Tucson, Arizona - Wichita, Kansas - Crown Point, Indiana - and more!  We made it to Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas to see our third grandson and visit with our son and his family as well as my Dad and his wife.  My husband just got home (7 hours ago) from a week in Ontario, Canada.  Yet to come this year among others are Portland, Maine and Seattle, Washington!  During all of this we are also trying to put together a new house with cleaning, painting, flooring, and moving in during September!

I made two printables for you to print and use as you wish... Click to open them full screen and save them to your computer.  The free image for this Hop Stop is also here to save!  Thank you Paulette for always sharing wonderful images that generate creativity and surprising results!

HOW TO BE HAPPY!



How to Be Happy!

Don't ever stop dreaming your dreams;
they're a very essential part of you.
Do whatever you can to make them a
reality by the course you take,
the plans you make,
and all the things you do.
Don't dwell on past mistakes; leave
yesterday behind you --- along with any
of its problems, worries, and doubts.
Do realize you can't change the past,
but just ahead is the future --- and
you can do something about that.
Don't try to accomplish everything at
once; life can be difficult enough ---
without adding frustration to the list.
Do travel one step at a time, and reach
for one goal at a time. That's the way
to find out what real accomplishment is.
Don't be afraid to do the impossible,
even if others don't think you'll succeed.
Do remember that history is filled with
incredible accomplishments of those who
were foolish enough ..... to believe.
Don't forget that there are so many
things that are wonderful, rare,
and unique about you.
And do remember that if you can search
within and find a smile ..... that smile
will always be a reflection
of the way people feel ..... about YOU!
