Be Happy make plans for the New Year !

I did a class for free at Big Picture Scrapbooking called ScraHappy, and it was just a sample of the talk that Stacy Julian does going around USA, It was so inspirational, because took me to know this book.

I bought used on Amazon, and the main reason of the class is do to 10 secrets from this book, that you want to do, or you already did and scrapbook about then, and this journal that you do with sections, and lists to think about this secrets and maybe begin to add more of this secrets for your life. Its a simple fast reading book, but it opened so many views for me , about
Simple Hapiness.
My goal also is to be more aware of " being Grateful" , so I will start my Gratitude journal to write 5 things i'm grateful each day , all started listening to this Oprah's soul series, I bought the book, that I plan to begin to read each day starting tomorrow, because the book has a diary style, that begins on January, 1.
Again , I bought used on Amazon

Think About your Word for 2009
mine is
For so many reasons 2009 will be for us at home, the start of many things and adventures.


1. an act or circumstance of entering upon an action or state
2. the point of time or space at which anything begins
3. the first part
4. Often, beginnings. .
5. origin; source; first :
6. just formed.
7. first; opening.
8. basic or introductory.
9. learning the fundamentals.

And this book

Showed me a new whole way, to organize my pictures and think of a new way to organize my scrapbooking , as I started more I got a little lost how I was going to organize all this.
This book showed me how to use so much better the program I already have for free at my computer: iPhoto, but of course there is other programs to organize pictures, I dont agree with the printing method that she does, but it sure helped me tons, and I'm so excited with the new approach.

Called Library of Memories
And I have mine all planned....Its exciting ! To learn and to accomplish something to yourself.

Do you need to be a card maker or scrapbooker to do some of this things?
Not really, but if you are you can put your artistic flair :)

Well, I wanted to share some things that I think will help you, with your life, creativity, growth...
To scrapbook, is to continue a legacy, leave your mark, but whatever you do , you're living it anyway.
If you are card maker, knitting, crochet, what matter is to see someone smile when they see that you care, and YOU leave your mark.
So, I hope I could help with some ideas.

I want to thank all of you that stopped by my corner here, and for some reason stopped and checked on my blog, subscribed to it, and leave comments.
This year was a big change and discovery for me too, in my blog and in my craft life.
So, thank you for your support and visit.I really appreciate.

Happy 2009
A very Peaceful and full of new beginnings !

Hi, Jana. happy new year for you! I've been following your blog in 2008 and I like it very much. Thank you for all your inspiration.
My word for 2009 is "focus", because I tend to begin a lot of things and don't have them finished. So, I'll try to be more focused this year.
