All Done!

Ta-da! I have reached the end of Rhonna's 21 Day Challenge and my journal is finished. I am proud that I stuck with it till the end and hopefully my goal of thinking positively will continue on into the future. Reading A New Earth in conjunction with writing this journal has definitely been the added boost I needed to reaching my goal.
It feels good to have accomplished this, especially in the midst of working on swaps, special orders and Easter preparations. It's important to make time to do something for ourselves once in a while. As wives, mothers, daughters, friends, employees, etc. we tend to give and give to other people all the time. But what is left to give, unless we take a break to refill the well every now and then.
My journal is complete. My pages are finished and have been added to the binding. I always love the way a completed journal looks in the end. It's the same feeling I got when I finished a big project back when I was in school. (Back in the dark ages, as I tell my daughter!) If you'd like to see the entire journal, click here.This is the fourth 21 Day Challenge that I have completed and I feel I have grown as a person with each and every page. It's exciting to look back at these journals to see just how far I have come.

Today is Day 10 of our Hippity Hop Easter Swap and this gift is from Beth. She wrapped her present in this lovely swatch of ivory lace with a hint of what's inside peeking out of the top.And look! It's a tube full of SPRING topped off with the most darling pale yellow chick (he looks vintage to me) donning a royal crown made from a page right out of an old book. Of course there is glass glitter and vintage posies too. I adore it! Thank you Beth!!! :) In case you forgot, there are 4 other groups exchanging gifts in this swap and you can see pics of all of them by clicking here.
