Dream Big For 2013

How would you rate your 2012 year? Did you make some big changes and stick to them? Did you lose the weight you wanted and kept it off? Did you purge some dead weight people from life? Worked on your spirituality? Made some steps to your dream job or your own business? One a scale from 1 to 10, where does your year fall? If you ranked it 5 or below, why? What is YOUR game plan to make sure this time next year, you rate your year an 8, 9 or 10!!!!!! My year was a 9!!! Why? I can tell you it had nothing to do with money. It has everything to do with the love and support from my family and friends. It has everything to do with using the gift I was given in a positive manner. Plenty to do with obtaining inter satisfaction of using my gift to express myself on canvas. This week, I will be working on my plan for this year. I will be putting my plan on paper, solidifying my goals in ink! I challenge you to instead of verbally, randomly talking about your goals, WRITE them down!!! Keep it realistic! Make your goals digestible in little baby bits! I hope that this time next year, I can report another good year. I really hope the suggestions I gave you will allow for you to report that your 2013 turned out to be at least a 8!!! -Kay

The Magic of Christmas!

It’s my day to blog for the Holiday Blog Tour! I’ve been waiting patiently all week for my turn! No, not really patiently! I’ve been feeling like a six year old child waiting and hoping to see Santa Claus. We all know the true meaning of Christmas! However, the magic of Christmas is what is thrilling to children & some adults! Little children all over the world are writing Christmas wish list in hopes that Santa stops at their house. My Christmas painting conveys the dream of all children. Every child wants to sneak out of bed with hopes of seeing Santa putting gifts under the tree for them. I was that little girl. My parents have told me the story of me when I was about five. I wouldn’t get in bed and I guess dad was ready to fill the role of Santa’s representative. I was out of bed, looking out the window. When I heard, “HO Ho HO!” My parents giggled quietly to themselves as I yelled, “I see him, I see him!” I leaped into bed and hurried to slumber. I’m sure most parents have stories of making sure their children experience the magic of Christmas. Not to be a downer, but some kids don’t get to experience the magic of Christmas. Let’s step out of “our” world this Christmas. Do something special for a family that you know needs it! Let me do something for you! The first two people to “like” my fan page, Artisan Karen La Beau’s Art & Jewelry, will get a free 5x7 print!
