The first month of 2013 is over and it went as quickly as it came. I am now 38 days late of making my new years resolutions list, whoops! Unfortunately, like blogging (my sincerest apologies, I promise I’ll step my game up), it’s been put on the back burner due to an overwhelming amount of work and the recent discovery of American Netflix. BUT I swear I’ve cut down on Netflix.. and as for my list, I guess I’ll give it a go. I’m going to keep it sweet and simple because I made little new year goals to myself on January 1st and it was a big fail, so much so that I forgot what they were. The only one I do remember is no texting while driving. When I realized this was impossible I changed it to “light texting while driving”.. I’d be lying if I said I’ve stuck to this resolution, but I swear, like Netflix, I have cut down. Here we go:
2. Work harder than ever
3. Get out of my comfort zone as much as possible
4. Live, love and laugh more
As you can see they’re all very general but they will be my 2013 keys to being a better me *cue Kanye – Stronger*. To make this official I have pinned this list to my bulletin board so I can look at it every single day.
I feel like this should end with “Happy New Year! Good luck with your resolutions!” But clearly I’m a little late so I’ll stick with the classic happy-almost-Friday and happy February!
I’m not sure who was more excited about this project, myself or Amy, the talented creator and designer behind Confetti Card Co.! This has definitely become one of my favourite blog designs that I’ve designed to date. Lovely shades of blush, hints of gold & glitter complimented with a soft script font; what’s not to love! If you’re a scissor-savy diy queen, stationery paper hoarder or just a lover of all things pretty, make sure to bookmark ConfettiCardCo.com!
