I titled it When You're Away.
"Have faith, have courage, and never consider the circumstances" - Sarah's Choice
New Year's Eve my mind was so full of ideas for the non-profit organization that I've been dreaming about, which will ultimately shape the direction of this blog and my shop. I hope in the next few months to sell my jewelry and donate a portion of the money back into supplies so I can make items to donate to local causes. For example, my local library is always having penny sales and elf shops to raise funds, so I could donate to that. Or, a Minister I know works for Arctic Missions and he says the Inuit people that he works with love getting southern jewellry. Ultimately, I want to make this bigger.... so it becomes about the beautification of my community and helping families in need. I think sometimes communities just need a morale boost.... and anyway, I'm super excited about this. I just need to keep focused and not find a million other projects to distract me.
I have another good cause I want to talk about tomorrow, but this is already getting super wordy. Also my sweet little cuz did some photos of me today, and I love them so much.... here's a sneak peek...
She got a new strobe light for Christmas and wanted to practice with it, so I volunteered. Here is the link to her blog. Check out her work!
And I still have shown you my new room!
So many things, and so little time.
To sum up, here are my goals for the New Year. I'm creating a link back to them so I can check on them all the time.
-start the charity
-improve my French
-remember to be thankful all the time
-give more of myself to others
-give more of myself to God, and expect change in myself and the community
-be less afraid! Act! Have faith! Live!
-start an online business under my own domain name
-inspire others instead of always griping
-write and photograph and don't background it, it's what you love
-losing 5 pounds wouldn't hurt either :)

(Oh and I'm resolved to only use my own images on my blog! No more weheartit.com (Other than wishlists or giveaway links, that sorta thing....))
