Happy New Year!

2013 is here and the start of a new year.  I am always glad to begin a new year with all of the possibilities for more adventures and crafting opportunities.  The new year always seems to lend itself to starting new projects and making resolutions to better ourselves.

This year I am open to the possibility of expanding my wealth of knowledge in paper crafting.  I want to learn new techniques.  I want to create some new ideas on my own.  I want to try new things.  

A new idea that I have learned about is the idea of having one word you live by for the year.  This is the word that you focus on during the year.  I was thinking about this "word".  The first word that came to mind was faith.  Faith is believing in things that you can not see.  I feel that I do have faith and know how to have faith in life, so I didn't think that faith should be my "word".  I then got to thinking about what I have been feeling with the new year and in my own life.  I came to the conclusion that I have HOPE that things will work out for the greater good.  I place my HOPE in Jesus for my salvation.  I HOPE that good things will come to me in the coming year.  I HOPE to have many new opportunities and adventures in the new year.  I then went to the dictionary and looked up the word HOPE!  Here is what I found:

1. the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events
will turn out for the best.
2.  a particular instance of this feeling
3.  grounds for this feeling in a particular instance
4. a person or thing in which expectations are centered.
5. something that is hoped for

HOPE is my word for 2013.


I HOPE you will follow me on my journey!
