Keep trying until you get the results you want!

We all can walk right? Well, most of us can unless we have a disability. We are taught at a early age to walk and most of us are walking by the age "1". Some of us will start a little sooner and some a little later. The end result is that we are all walking because we were motivated to! If we were not motivated by someone and told to keep trying over and over, we would have never learned to walk. I'm here to tell you to WALK! Well, maybe I should say do not give up! You have to keep trying no matter how many times you fall. This can relate to our scrapping too! I would like to give you an example of how I am still learning how to

I made this rose about year ago:
I thought these were cute but some thing kept telling me to keep trying.

Now almost a year later I make these using the same punch and technique:

I also want to talk with you about what "WALK" stands for here on my blog.
W= Willpower
A= Aggressiveness
L= Love
K= Kindness

When you are "WALKing" you first have to have "Willpower". You have to have the will to take your creativeness to the next level. If you don't have the willpower you will never be able to move a long to the next steps. The second step is Aggressiveness. You have to be aggressive towards what you want. You have to go and get it! Stop waiting for something to happen and or drop into your lap! The third step is "Love". You have to love what you do or it becomes a negative activity for you and you will not get very far with it! If you are not doing what you love the first two steps will soon disappear. The fourth is "Kindness". You have to be kind and give back. If you have ever heard of "give and you shall receive" well, that is very true. When you give, you are feeding a positive energy which is around you and in return positive things will be attracted to you . Then positive things will happen for you.

So, I hope you look at your scraps in a positive way today and "WALK".
Be sure to keep checking back on the blog all week. I will have a picture tutorial of one of my flowers and I will be challenging you this week too!

Thank you sometimes lately I have felt very defeated in certain aspects in my life and then I craft and it gives me hope, and then I have more to look forward to when I keep trying at something and finally accomplish it.
