December’s Creative Dare is about what you Value.  During MMM this week I spoke of a book I got called  “Where will you be Five Years from Today” and I started with the Five Things I Value page:



Here is the piece I created from that that I shared HERE:

2013 has gone by so fast and I plan on sending it out on a high note with all my many blessings.  Knowing who I am and vhat I value during this busy holiday season is particularly important for me.  I have also decided to continue to “LET IT GO” and not let the stresses of the season get to me.  Things always have a way of working out, decorations get up, Christmas cards do get sent (or not), but the time you have with family and friends is the most valuable.  Make time for YOU too!  Let’s get this party started!  Bring on December 2013!
“Remember the good times, be strong during tough times, love always, laugh often, live honestly, and be thankful for each new day.”
