New Cards and stuff

Just wanted to let you know that I have a couple of new things up in my Etsy shop! Having lots of fun making Valentine's cards and stuff! Lots of ideas floating around.

Also, start checking out my other "business" blog. I think that I am going to start highlighting a fav shop/seller from Etsy on there. I would like to do it everyday, but I know I won't remember. LOL! So, I'm thinking twice a week or so. First of all, doing it to showcase some of the talent on that site. Also, hoping to drive a little more traffic to my blog and in turn, my Etsy shop. So, please support me and other handmade artists and check out my posts. Thanks!

It's a Good Thing

I wanted to do a post about my 'one little word' already. I picked the word DO. Skip down a couple of posts if you want to read more about it. But, I've decided already that I picked the right word for me for this year. At least for right now. It has been a motivating word already this year. Especially when exercising. Hubby has been using it as a reminder to keep going and a motivator to DO what I think I can't. It really has helped. When he reminds me what I picked as a word, when I want to quit, it makes me keep going. I don't want to disappoint him and I don't want to disappoint myself and my reasons for picking the word DO. Anyway, what I'm saying is I did a good thing here, picking this word for myself.
How is your word going so far? Have you reflected on it yet? Maybe you should. Just because it's early in the year doesn't mean it hasn't already affected your life.

Check out my Etsy

I've listed some stuff in my Etsy shop the last few days. Just wanted to let everyone know. I've got a couple of handmade Valentine's Cards, just put up today.
Also, I have some vintage table linens up for sale. Very pretty embroidery on these pieces.

Otherwise, not too much to post right now. So far the new year is a good one. If you ignore the snow, blowing snow, and seriously cold weather we are having in Iowa right now! LOL! If you can get past that, it's pretty great!

My "one little word" for 2010 is "DO".
Last year my word was move-with the hopes it would inspire me to get up and move more. It did to a point, but I felt this year I still needed some more motivation. So I chose the word DO. But, it's not just about exercise or moving. It's also about doing.

Just DO it.
Just DO something.
DO anything.
DO a little.
DO a lot.
DO enough.
DO what you can.
DO what makes you happy.
DO it today.
DO it tomorrow.
DO it now.
Just DO it! (Sorry Nike had a good line there.) LOL!

I've been inspired by Ali Edwards to pick my word of the year. Here is her post for this year. I believe it also includes links to her last two years and info. about why and how she started doing this.

What word did you choose? Which word would you choose? Think about what you need or want in your life right now. Sometimes a little reflection, even on one word, is enough to motivate you and help make things happen!
