One Little Word...

Ok so I posted back at the beginning of Jan my one little word for the year which was focus!  But what does that word really mean for me???  I've been thinking about this quite a bit but it has only just come to me... hahahaha I'm not slow on the up take at all.  Primarily it would have to be 'focus on finishing one project before starting another'.  Ok I can do that, and just so as I remember I am going to turn this phrase into a prompt.  Now if I print it out and stick it to my Word Cloud that is on the fridge I will see it everyday, WOOT.

So with that thinking in mind I have finished all of January's Challenges...YAY!  If you haven't picked up the card or sketch templates, make sure you don't miss them :) READ MORE HERE >>>>

FREEBIE Wednesday!!!

Another fun and fabulous week in the Doi house hold this past week...  It was Bloke's birthday Sunday, so to celebrate the Doi family gathered round to sing happy birthday and eat the yummiest cake EVER!  I was very naughty and had two pieces...lol.  For once I was ready with a present having bought it before Christmas, talk about take the drama out of gifting - must to this for everyone's birthday!

Then Monday we had our sweet granddaughter for the day, I tell ya it has been a while since I have looked after a little one but WOW I just love that little girl.  I had a fabulous day, we had lots of chats and laughs, a fair bit of sleeping (I even had a nanna nap... hehehe) and of course feed time was important! 

Being good Grandma I remembered my camera for both days and got some terrific photos ^.^ 

I am still catching up on my SDK Challenge scrapping but got another layout done.  This one for the What Winter means to Me Challenge...

The freebie of course is a QP from the layout

If you've been to Ali Edwards blog recently you will know she has started on her One Little Word project.  You can still sign up for the class HERE, I am still tossing up whether or not to sign up.  I have a pretty full schedule already, just trying to re-arrange things to squeeze it in...hehehe.  Anyway I have chosen my One Little Word - FOCUS, I have been getting better at focusing on what's in front of me but still need to work on it a bit. As a back up word I chose LISTEN, something I was very good at but somewhere a long the way over the past few years I have lost that skill.

Ali created a word cloud out of everyone's words, which I thought was just brilliant so I've done the same just emphasised my words...

if you want to make your own word cloud pop on over to Wordle.  I love that they had a colour scheme that matched my blog...hahahahaha. 

I have also been playing with my blog signature see below what do you think?  I'm really happy with the way it turned out and it was a bit of fun to create ^.^.

Happy 2011 FREEBIE!

Can you believe it a new year is here already, and all I can say is WOOT, WOOT, YAY!  I have been diligently working on my December Daily (digi) pages.  I had hoped to share some more with you but as I am now doing the days backwards - I have finished the 25th and 24th working on the 23rd I figured I should wait and keep the days flowing in the correct order... hehehehe.

So instead I will share a layout and a QP freebie...

Christmas Traditions - this is my page for the SDK December Challenge to scrap your Christmas Traditions.  Our family has heaps!  When I got married I carried on a few from when I lived at home and added more.  I love that Blossom (now she is an adult) joins me each Christmas for the decorating and cooking.  Traditions I hope she will carry on when her little family comes along ^.^
