See Things For What They Can Be

The Ending

June 1st marks the ending of the first six months of 2012. Thinking ahead….I wonder what all of those superstitious people are gonna do about next year…..anyway, my mind goes to all of the resolutions that have been broken or never made it out of the gate. It’s been awhile since I’ve done the resolution things….very long time.

I penned the poster below November 12, 2011. I’d have to do a little more digging to see when it was first published on my blog or my CafePress website. It may sound cliche but I do get inspired when I read it. I wrote it in a way that whoever reads this, can apply it to themselves….the question at the end?….I ask myself, what have I done since the last time I read it. Sometimes I am so angry with me because I’ve missed easy ops, but I know there are more doors ahead. There are times when I muster a smile or two just knowing I am able to even try to pursue dreams. I frustrate myself by trying to do too much at one time….multi-multitasking. I love it when I get that giddy feeling.

I’m more determined than ever to reach for goals, achieve them and reach for more. I’m not going to wait until the beginning of the year to start my new year. Right now I feel as if I’m making that turn….you know the feeling….you’ve been on THAT road for such a long time you can tell that the scenery is starting to change. It’s such a good feeling.

I did edit the wording on this new poster…I took out the words “have to” on the third line and replaced them with the word “can” and did a little realignment with the rest.

I’m going to be posting pictures in a couple of weeks and I would very much  your advice, opinion, input. I’m going to have a few small giveaways during the month of June so it would be a good idea to tell your friends to like my Facebook page. That’s a few of what’s up and coming….gonna ride this wave as far as it will take me.

No Fanfare

In case you haven’t heard or found out via a link here or there, my website, has launched. I decided not to do a big announcement or anything like that because I had given myself a deadline to get the site up and ready for business by the end of September. I did that, but in the process of doing so, I pretty much drained myself. Working a full time job and coming home to work on my “second” job proved to be a tad exhausting. 

Right now I have Romance and Birthday cards on the site. I’m still adding to both and including Anniversary, Congratulations, Friendship, and of course, with Christmas coming, I’ll be working on those, and more. 

I was just so happy to have it ready, I had no energy for a “Grand Opening”. I think I will still have a “thing” about my opening, but right now, it’s not happening. 

I AM going to have a give away… very soon. I have decided to give a lucky winner, no less than five (5) cards. At least two (2) of them will be fresh designs.

Details will be announced on The Mahogany Way. I will link to her site when that happens.   

Until then, this will be the last time I mention anything about the give away on this blog until a winner is announced!! 

So stay tuned and good luck. 

On a footnote, it may not be a bad idea to get email notices from this blog from here on, because I will be making special offers and I’m the kinda guy who likes to have fun and give stuff away….

…just a thought
