For the past three years, I have chosen a "word" for each year. A theme of sorts. I really like the thought of choosing a word that encompasses all that I hope to change and become in the new year. It's a very personal and timely thing, choosing the right word for where I am at in my journey and where I want to go.
After lots of thinking and prayer, I knew what my word for this year needs to be. I have found myself swept along with the craziness of life and the things that I wanted to accomplish, to change in myself, to spend time on get set aside. I realized that if I wanted to change this that I would need to do it intentionally. So that is my word. Intentional. It sounds so simple and at first thought, boring. All of my goals, however, fit under this one word! From how I respond to situations to my fitness goals...they all are under this one word.
Starting with a piece of Fresh Snow Linen cardstock, I first printed the definition of intentional. I love the linen texture and the heavier cardstock weight is perfect for my theme page, something that will need to stand up to repeated wear and tear throughout the year.
I die cut the word intentional out of Luxe Gold Adhesive Paper using the Wet Paint Alphabet die set. I can't even tell you how giddy I am that this paper already has the adhesive on it...it makes it so easy to add to projects, especially when using alphabet dies!
For decoration, I stamped and die cut one of the lighthouses from the Guiding Lights set (and coordinating Guiding Lights die set). The sentiment is from the Guiding Lights set as well. I also added an anchor from the Ahoy stamp set (and coordinating Ahoy die set).
In keeping with my theme for this year, I thought it would be helpful to break down certain goals for each month. I kept it simple, by only picking three that I really want to focus on. They say that if you can do something for 21 days then it becomes a habit. These are definitely new habits that I want!
I created another sheet and added it right after my January dashboard (you can see that HERE). Just like my dashboard, I used the Fab Flakes stamp set to decorate this page. Using the Moments Inked: Remembered set, I stamped the numbered lines. For the title, I die cut two "this" words (from the Wet Paint Cuts 2 die set). The "month" word is from the Wet paint 2 stamp set.
At the bottom of the page, I embossed an encouraging quote (from the A Little Inspiration stamp set). Just a little reminder for me not to be too hard on myself, and to keep on keeping on! :-)
And because I'm absolutely loving the new longer daily columns (no longer separated), I thought I would share a little peek at my upcoming week. Thankfully it's not that full (yet)! I am still loving the Blog Banners stamp set! I use them exclusively (along with the Planner Banner die) to keep track of many of my ongoing commitments. I actually purchased a second Planner Banner die so I could make larger quantities of these little banner stickers at one time.
I hope that I have inspired you to incorporate your new goals into your weekly planning!
