  12. My new idea is to start a five year journal on my birthday (Friday). So one question a day and a 3-5 sentence response. Thanks for a chance to win.

  13. My big idea is to keep a clean workspace. I just realized I work so much better with a clear table! Who knew.

  14. My big idea was to take two classes in the same month. I believe I bit off more than I can chew. LOL! It's all good though because they are scrapping classes and I am the only one putting any pressure on to complete things on a deadline. :)

  15. My big idea is to make something - anything everyday. I love to stitch on my layouts.

  16. My newest big idea is committing to not following trends! If I like it, then fine. I can always try something once, right? & to be gutsy but less approval seeking when expressing my creativity.
