The Creating Bug....

My creative spirit has renewed itself. I have been busy at work the past two weeks on a mini album that will be a gift for a dear friend. I'm actually making two of them, so I still have a bit of work to do. The hardest part is done however, since I plan to use the layout from the first album as the basis for the second one.

I've also been playing around a bit with Photoshop. I figure that I should develop a bit more "techno savvy" when it comes to photos and editing. I started by locating a quote that would reinforce my One Little Word and decided to try creating my own "subway art" piece.

Here is the result:

Not too bad, eh?

A New Year...... A Renewed Me

Happy New Year!!
Welcome to the first day of 2012.
I realize that this is really just another "tomorrow" that has become "today", but it really does kind of feel like a new start, doesn't it?

With that in mind, I have chosen One Little Word to guide me and my thinking through the remainder of the year: RENEW.

My hope is for this year to be one of renewal: renewed energy, renewed enthusiasm for life and my career, renewed creativity, and renewed romance within my marriage. I will endeavor to devote more time to the things and people that truly make my life better. I will renew my focus on things that count; things that truly make a difference.

In the past I have, too often, allowed work, stress, and the woes of the daily grind to weigh me down. I have focused on the negative and forgotten to take the time to be grateful for what I have. It is my hope that I can renew my focus on myself, my family, and the positive things about each day.

Keep watching this blog because, if things go as planned, I hope to have many more positive things to share with you.
