My Heart on a String

New year, new month, new me? Let’s hope so — not the revamped don’t recognize me me, but back to myself me. After all, this is “if she did what she loves”!

Since the ball fell in the big apple I’ve been determined to slowly incorporate the things I love back into my life, little by little — you know, baby steps. Much like faith, I am going to take steps with the hopes and certainty that I will feel more like myself again, and by trusting and taking those steps, THEY WILL. So, I’m taking the risk, stepping out in faith, and putting my heart on the line…or string (you’ll see).

One step includes a goal — seeking the inspiration of various sketch challenges, I am aiming to complete three cards a week. Card by card I am determined to fight the meanness out of life and regain some of my life-lovin’ verve.

Here’s a start…this past week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenged participants to make a round or square card with a great funky flair.

See, I told ya – heart (or shall I say hearts) on a line (or string). I stretched myself even further with this challenge to try punching a circle with a corner punch, AND to use these absolutely adorable mini clothespins. It took me about two days to complete it and love it, but after a few iterations, I finally got it just right — AND I did what I love!
