i heart new year’s challenge day 7

Are you like me? Could you do the whole I Heart New Year’s Challenge over again and still have more to do? The beauty of all of the reading about taking on change in small, manageable chunks is that it reminds me that I have the entire year to work on this stuff.  source My [...]

i heart new year’s challenge- day 6 bucket lists!

True confessions- I had a 25 Before Twenty Five List (sort of like Nicole’s 30 Before Thirty List at Making It Lovely). I can’t find it or I (might) put it on here. And on our babymoon in Costa Rica, Adam and I made a “To Do In Life,” list. It’s kind of funny to [...]

kojotutorial- round inspiration boards

Today is Day 2 of the I Heart New Year’s Challenge- Find/Make Some Creative Inspiration! As you find/make some inspiration, are you needing a spot to pin your clippings, swatches, print outs, and to do lists? Me too! My current pile-on-a-table method is less than inspirational for sure. Luckily, my lovely friend Erin got me [...]
