I picked 2 really. I am making this a RE year. I will try to recycle more in every way I can think of.
But my BIG improvement is outlook. I am pretty much a "my glass is 1/2 full" kind of person.
My friend Deb and I talk about the power of positive attraction. You can read more about that if you want in the book "The Secret". I am trying to remember to always think of what I want to happen, not what I DON"T want to happen.
That led to the theme of my January page. Let me first tell you, that I looked for a way to bead the thought, yet quickly, because my life is on a roller coaster right now.
The blue beads are like those little thought bubbles when a character in a comic is "thinking".
Of course the $$ are self explanatory...or are they. For me, they mean we will have plenty of money to pay property taxes....our jobs are secure....our retirement funds WILL rebound before we want to use them. I have a hard time thinking grandeous. I don't think about sportscars and mansions. When I am wealthy I will build and fund animal shelters and help those in need.
The RX is the affirmation that my husband's RA treatment will continue to keep the disease at bay.
The two little stick figures are my grandsons . I never think about what I don't want for them...but am always thinking in the positive. They will be well adjusted...their grades will continue to improve....and for my oldest to continue his love of sports. My youngest will be a comedian and earn millions entertaining the crowds, but he won't forget those that cannot afford to pay the price of tickets to see him.
As Robin said in one of her posts, the heart symbol has had many meanings. Here they symbolize my desire for self improvement. I will continue to achieve higher levels spiritually. My emotional health will continue to improve and I will continually be able to more openly express my feelings. Above all I will strive for truth and honesty in all I do.
Of course the yellow background is symbolic. I have chosen the sun as my symbol of hope. Here the yellow depicts my positive attitude that better times are coming.

She hasn't had much use lately, but I am going to find a spot for her to remain so that she will be ready to go at any minute. I love her. I had forgotten how much.
No, I can't put beading aside, but I definitely have the urge to sew. But, can I find the time?

I have a blogger friend, Rocki who is just the most humorous person.
I met her on My Space, but follow her blog here. She sells hand made
silver jewelry findings, such as ear wires and clasps.
I love her hammered hearts.
I am like most people that blog. I love to Blog Surf.
That is how I met Bridget. Her blog is called Heart of a Cowgirl.
Of course I had to visit there. I think I have a heart of a cowgirl,
or at the very least led a western era previous life.
(I know I wasn't a farmers wife. Now, nothing wrong with being
a farmer's wife. I just know that I didn't have what it takes to be one.)
I found a link to her blog that led me to her etsy shop.
I absolutely had to have one of her leather cuffs.
It is just my FAVORITE new jewelry.

This is my oldest grandson on Halloween 2006. He was a Cheerleader for his school including the long blonde hair and make up.
His mom is behind him dressed as a Geisha.
Halloween is a great time at our house.
