Making This Year Different

Purge- To remove (impurities and other elements) by or as if by cleansing

Do you find that at the beginning of a new year, you are ready to PURGE? Purge everything....home- workspace, closets, basements, garages, toy rooms, and of course your body. :) Lately, with lots of inspiration from some pretty fabulous ladies, I have felt the need to purge somethings in my lifestyle, in my way of thinking and living. I have a renewed feeling that this year I am going to do more things, take that next step that I've been fearing, and plant the seed that will lead to future promises. I will get rid of the doubt, the procrastinations and the "I don't know if I can do that" way of thinking.

Is anyone out there with me?

Earlier this week I signed up for an ecourse held by the lovely Jeanne Oliver. This class is called "Creatively Made" I was unsure if I should sign up for it at first, but took the plunge, and about a second after I did it, I knew I had done the right thing. I love the title of the class. It's not just about art folks, but how we are also Creatively Made by the Father. How wonderful this strong woman of Faith is and what a blessing it was to hear her talk about Gifts that were given to us with a purpose, with an intent to be used. It spoke so much to me and over a 100 other women on the very first day. And, these othere's so great to see everyone on there sharing so many thoughts, ideas, word....amazing! :)

So, my week got real busy and led to a whole bunch of "fun homework", but it was worth it.

On top of the ecourse, I am also going to be starting up the Dave Ramsey course! Wow, I must miss school?!
If you aren't familiar with DR, go HERE.

And as soon as I started pouring thoughts into the DR thing...a little craft came to mind, to make for the new endeavor.....will be sharing that soon, but here is a hint at what I'll be making.

Plus then there are the acorns.....lots of them floating around the house too, as I've been making them. Thinking pinks and glitter for February.

And quickly, as are a few pictures of some new pottery that we made for the Christmas Open House.

New Soup Pots (Tureens)

Some New Lamps....LOVED these myself.

Some Coasters

And Chip n Dip Bowls! How fun!

So, are you purging? And if so, what? And if you too are taking the Creatively Made ecourse, I would love to hear from ya!

See you soon!
