None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human
birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek
to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach
The merry year is born Like the bright berry from the naked thorn.

Happy New Year my Crafty Peeps!
I hope that 2015 is starting off awesomely for you all.
I will admit though that I am looking forward to getting back into some semblance of a routine after the hustle and bustle of the Holidays! To much unhealthy food and sleeping in late is taking it's toll on me!
I do try to not make New Year Resolutions, at least not unrealistic ones like being a size 8 by summer or learning a new language by October! The main reason is simply because I wind up feeling guilty and disappointed if I don't meet the expectations I set for myself.
So I set small goals, like getting up a little earlier than normal to re-start my work out program which always seems to go into hibernation during the Holidays! Weight loss and being fit is just a side benefit at this point.
Making better food choices - in this case, it's back to an almost Paleo diet for my husband and myself. We did it once before and felt amazing ... not sure why we stopped to be honest.
This year is also going to have decluttering added (in small bites) to the mix. Since we are talking about downsizing might as well start now and get rid of the stuff that I am so tired of dusting!
I hope, that whatever good and healthy path you choose that you are successful!
Today is another Clean and Simple Challenge at The Outlawz!
Such a popular craft item these days, Washi tape is used on everything from cards to cell phone covers! Our challenge for you this week is to use Washi Tape on your card or project. Just keep it CAS!
Here is my card! Interesting enough though, Washi tape is not something that I have embraced. Not sure why. In fact, the only reason why I have the tape used here is that I purchased it while in Jaen thinking I would use on a Christmas card (which never happened!)
