Faith Journal page #2

My Faith Journal week #2. I really had fun with this page and got inspired all over again from this quote. Love doing this please join us and share your Faith Journal journey. All the links to the members room and the boutique are in the description of the video. 

Never Give UP!

I found another quote on Facebook that inspired me and I though I would share. This is a person called Spenzii I think to all his friends. I just wanted to share this with you this morning. I have always told me girls there is nothing in this world you can't accomplish if you work at it hard enough. It just takes dedication and hard work and you can accomplish extraordinary things in your life. I am so proud of both my girls because they do work hard and have all their lives and have accomplished great things.

Never let anyone tell you that you will amount to nothing. Remember and keep in mind that God didn't make nothing, He made SOMETHING out of NOTHING, and that is YOU and I,  the WORLD, and the very air we breath.

Here is the quote I read and it inspired me on a day when I needed it the most, maybe it will inspire some of you too.

If you FAIL, never give up because F. A. I. L. means, 
END is not the end, in fact, E.N.D. means 
If you get NO, as an answer, remember

Faith Journal Questions?

Here is a shot of my first two pages of my Faith Journal up close. I love the shimmer the spray puts on the pages.

I have been asked to do these live with you, I don't have a camera that will do live YouTube but I may try to do a live Periscope if anyone wants it. Just let me know in the comments.

I have had a few questions from members asking what they need to use, scripture, poems, songs etc. I just say use what keeps you going from day to day, scripture, poems, songs, quotes, photos etc. These are the things that motivate me and keep me going from day to day, especially when I sometimes feel like just giving up. There is no right way or wrong way to do your journal, it is yours just do what will inspire you and make you happy.

I want to see photos when you get them done please post in the members room. This will help inspire each of us.

Thanks so much for watching, E

Here is the first full week of my 2016 planning using my new Plum Paper Planner. As you can see I am all over the place with color. I love colorful spreads, makes me notice things better. Also mine is not as neat as it, maybe could be, but I use my planner everyday in my work, I don't mind. So this is a working planner, and I write on the pages. I stamp on the pages, and as you can see I use many stickers for notes, separations etc. I also use my skinny washi tape, love this for the planner, it is just the right size to cover any of those areas where you don't want to use their pre-printed colors.

I will be doing videos on my next weeks planning so stay tuned and see what I can come up with lol. I don't have a large variety of stickers so I just use what I have and if I don't have something I need I just make them on my Cricut. I will be doing a video on making planner stickers using your cricut as well.

Lots of great things coming up in 2016, I can't wait to share them with you!!

And don't forget CHA is next week! We will be uploading lots and lots of new products in the Facebook store as well as on our .com, so keep a watch out for those!. Videos showcasing new product releases from CHA will be uploading just as soon as they release them. Check out our YouTube and subscribe so you don't miss anything.

Subscribe to this blog, we will be having a hidden giveaway each month this year. You have to look for the word "giveaway" in the blog post then leave a comment under the post letting us know you found the word. We will draw for the winner and announce here on the blog. We will give the winner 24 hours to contact us, if they have not done so in 24 hours then we will draw another winner.

2016 is here! Can you believe it? 2015 went so very fast. Seems it was only yesterday that we were welcoming the new year (2015). 

I in no way accomplished everything I wanted to last year. I had lots of plans on my agenda but did not complete all of them. I think I am either getting slower or the years are getting shorter lol. Anyway I have my agenda planned out for this year and here's hoping I will get most of it accomplished. I plan on working very hard to do so. 

Here are just a few plans I have for 2016 and I want you to follow along with me on my journey to complete these. I think if I know you will be watching me it will make me work harder to stay on track. 

1.  I will be posting more interesting content to my blog and have a hidden giveaway in one blog post once a month. All the details on how to enter to win the giveaway will be posted tomorrow. 

2.  I will be posting more how to videos on my YouTube and more often. I want to try and post one video a day but it may be 5 videos a week. That seems more feasible. 

This is just the beginning of my plans for this year. I will share more in the coming weeks.  I hope you will join me on my journey to make 2016 more interesting and more productive. 

Blessings, E
