WOW! Let me just say it has been a very busy 4 months. Some ups and downs but I'm sooooo... ready for the new year! I think the hardest part of walking your path in life is that some times you can't see where that path is taking you and you doubt yourself. I think that is some thing that many of us struggle with. We try to plan how the path will go and we start doubting it once our plans are adjusted or caught off course. Some times that best thing to do is sit and be still. Let yourself have a chance to see where the path wants to take you instead of where you want the path to lead. It's a very hard thing to do. This is the hardest thing I struggle with. I want to see the end result before I walk down the path and I have learn you miss A LOT when you have your blinders on. Some times you get caught up on trying to figure it all out, that you miss a lot of what is going on around you. When that happens you need to pull into a pit stop. If you can't get your head back into the game your pit stop may be the one thing that keeps you from going after your dream.
While I was at my recent pit stop I decide to just sit down and create a page. I can't remember the last time I created a 12x12 layout. Maybe the summer??
I kept the layout simple until I started creating my garden of flowers.
The angle of the photo is horrible but its been really wet outside and trying to catch some sun was working against me today. Couldn't lay on the wet ground to capture this one..LOL
I love adding all kinds of trinkets into my garden of flowers. It's fun to hide and seek elements, specially when you are working with sprays of flowers. It's almost like a game of "Where's Waldo"!
Lets play for a moment shall we?
Can you find these things?

- 7 Buttons
-5 Metal Leaves
-Decorative Rose Button
I hope to have some more time after the new year to work on some fab projects and showcase them here on my blog. I haven't been using it very often. I just need to get back into the swing of things again :)
I have been working on some thing in between all the hustle and bustle.
We have added a new and improved classroom on my website.
We have not opened the doors for visitors just yet BUT I am holding a VIP class in Feb 2013. This will be the opening of the first classroom. We hope by March 2013 to have the creative commons where you can see the different classrooms you might want to join open and ready for registration. That is still a work in progress but the VIP class is going to be an awesome flower class. You can read more about it on my "How-To Classes" page.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful TGIF!
Check back tomorrow and see what I will be giving away!
