There’s something refreshing about turning the calendar page, and the most exciting turn of all is from December to January. Good morning, 2014!
How better to start the year than with one of my favorite Stampin’ Up! color combinations – Pool Party and Island Indigo? We’ve actually had a bit of rain here on the dry side of the island, and it’s always a sign of blessing and a cause for celebration. These beautiful drops from the My Friend stamp set are just right to start the year, especially with some sparkle. I’m big on dreams and goals, and appreciate a little reminder to keep it positive sitting on my desktop.
This year my first-of-the-month Calendar post will be a Triple Treat – Crystal and Cheryl are posting calendars too! Take a look at their projects for a little more inspiration. If you’d like to create your own calendar, I have DIY calendar kits available. They’re $8 with the easel, $5 without (plus shipping) and you can find more details HERE.
I’ve been doing a lot of reflection as January first has approached, looking ahead to a new year. In my quest for inspiration I came across the Vivid and Brave website – and a list of journaling prompts for 2014. What a find!!! One of the prompts is Clearing the Clutter – and as a self-confessed pack-rat, I had already identified this as one of my highest priorities for 2014. However, the one that really started me thinking was What word or phrase will you eliminate from your vocabulary this year? So many directions to take that…my mind is spinning with the possibilities.
Thank you for reading The Maui Stamper – it humbles me to think that you’re taking time out of your day to see what I’m up to. Whatever your plans for 2014 might be, I wish you comfort and contentment.
