A Clean Slate to Plan
September 08, 2016
Ah a new school year, so fresh with so much potential. Just like new school supplies, clean notebooks and shiny pens, the school year smells new, hopeful, like a fresh start!
I’ve always loved back to school, it may only be my obsessive love for stationary ;) But I think there’s more to it.
I love the excuse to wipe everything clean and just start fresh.
I love the potential of that big blank space. Ideas and inspiration always come to me!
Now, of course, there’s no rule that says that you can only start over when the school calendar turns over, or at the beginning of the new year. These are just the traditional ‘fresh start’ times.
I encourage you to start afresh when ever you feel like you need it.
When things get stagnant or when you get a sparkly shiny idea that eats away at your every thought until you put into action. If it happens to be January 1 or the first day of school, that’s awesome but don’t let the date keep you from acting on what's motivating you. Let March 2nd, July 17th, any date, your birthday, tomorrow, today, RIGHT NOW be your start afresh day!!
I love the quote sticker from the Dear Lizzy pack in the August Embellishment kit from the hip Kit Club.
‘THE BEST TIME FOR NEW BEGINNINGS IS NOW’
So of course I added that to my September spread, it was first thing I picked to add along with other goodies from my kits.
So, what is stopping you from STARTING TODAY?
Is it fear?
Maybe you are waiting until the time is right?
The time is right now! Make a plan and jump to it!
If you don't know what you want to 'start today' consider taking my 'Plan Your Dreams' class at Big Picture Classes to help you get started.
I made this today bookmark live on Periscope, which you can watch here: TODAY BOOKMARK TUTORIAL I do tutorials live every Thursday using fun products from the Hip Kit club kits, so please come join us, or if you miss it you can catch the replay. Check it out so that you can see how I made the back look as pretty as the front :D
For my weekly spread for this week, I wanted it to feel special for my kids, since it’s our last full week before school starts. So, I named it 'magic’ using a sticker.
The tip-in is a die cut that I washi-ed in. I can always use a little more room on the back to write :D
Have a fantastic week, and don't forget, you can start anytime!!
Let me know in the comments what you are going to start and WHEN?
