| one little word PERSEVERE |

Thursday, January 3, 2013


Happy New Year everyone!

My one little word for 2013 is persevere. I took a look at some synonyms and they just sum up exactly what I want to do this year.

keep at it
keep on
carry on
keep trying
stick with

I really took some time to think over 2012 and I am so thankful and blessed to still be here to see another year.  My hope for 2013 is that I truly begin to fulfill some personal goals as well as being open to the next chapter in my life.  Blogging has been good and bad for me for different reasons but thankfully I will persevere even thru the anonymous negativity. My ultimate goal this year is to be persistent in developing a more sincere and intimate relationship with Christ. I want to become the woman that HE would have me to be.

I don't know the direction that this blog will have in 2013 but I do know that I will persevere. My hope is that my posts will become more meaningful and full of snaps of our lives. I want to ensure that my daughter can really look back and see those everyday moments that seem to get lost in time.


James 1:12 (NIV)
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.


  1. I just had to comment as we have both picked the same word for 2013. And here I thought I would be the only one.

  2. You'd have a great blog here if you didn't constantly copy everything Keisha does. You have talent all your own, why do you need to mimic her layouts, home decor, scrap room, Christmas decorations, Halloween decorations, her child's poses? I don't mean this to be offensive to you, but perhaps you aren't aware of how obvious it is, and that other blogs are bashing you for it.
    Ever been to The Scrap Smack? You might want to have a look-see. Every time you post here and it looks like Keisha's stuff, you get bashed hard!!! Not only that, but your daughter has been bashed there to. These people get really, really ugly, and say some pretty horrible things.

    Seriously, you don't need to stalk and harass Keisha, just do YOUR OWN thing and leave her to her's. Just a suggestion.

  3. Can we just get over this please. There are so many things that are "alike" in so many different avenues of life. There are several things that I have seen Keisha do that are just like pins from pinterest, would you comment on her blog that she is copying some one too? With Pinterest everyone and their mom should be labeled as you are labeling her. It's truly ridiculous....move on. I don't know her personally but stop beating a dead horse. No many in the scrap world are originators, everyone finds things and uses examples that some one else did before them. For instance plenty of scrapbook design team people have the same style as the one before them...I don't see the bashing of them. Sure people will say on a smack blog but no one says it to the design team ladies or to the other 10,000 scrap celebs that have very similar looks to the one before. I don't see what you all are complaining about. So much hate in this world that is what's wrong....everyone needs Jesus. lol
