One Word Goal: The Shabby Nest

One Word Goal The Shabby Nest

My name is Wendy Hyde, I am a Utah interior designer and I blog about interior design, decor and DIY at The Shabby Nest. I have been writing The Shabby Nest since 2008.

One Word Goal: Mod Podge Rocks

One Word Goal Mod Podge Rocks

Hi there! I'm Amy from the blogs Mod Podge Rocks and DIY Candy - and pleased to be here to share my "One Word" with you today. I love this challenge . . . seriously. It makes you think. It's actually difficult, at least for me, to reflect on the past year and think about what I want for 2015. Difficult only because it requires quite a bit of self reflection . . . the good and the bad. But I love the exercise. I like self examination, even when it's hard. So my word for this year? LIVE. I owe you a little bit of background. You see, I never expected to be in this position. By "position" I … [Read more...]

"Happy" means appreciating my family, my children, my friends, and all of the great things in my life. It helps me stay … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Polka Dot Chair

One Word Goal Polkadot Chair

Hi there SNAP fans, my name is Melissa Mortenson and I'm the girl behind the Polka Dot Chair Blog. I'm excited to be sharing my One Word with you today. Mostly because there is a level of accountability that comes from sharing this kind of thing with the world. Two years ago my word was DO, and I shared about it on my blog. Remarkably I stuck to it for most of the year and I'm a person that has a hard time with "stuck-to-it-ness" (is that a word??). This year my word is FOCUS. When I started my blog in 2008 I just posted things as I made them and didn't worry much about content consistency … [Read more...]

Hello Snap readers! My name is Laura and I blog over at Laura's Crafty Life. There you will find craft tutorials, DIY projects and tips on getting your home and life organized. I am so happy to be here sharing my one word goal for 2015! My word for 2015 is 'Create'. This may seem like a strange word to choose for a craft blogger since my job is to create every day. However, because creating is my job, I sometimes feel like I have lost sight of why I started my blog in the first place - I love to make things and share these ideas with others. However, sometimes, when your job is also your … [Read more...]

I want to … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Fleece Fun

One Word Goal Fleece Fun

Hi! I'm Angel with My website features free sewing patterns and fun DIY tutorials. I love the idea of having a word as guiding point or compass for the year. 2014 was a good year for me (I took control of my health and lost 30 pounds) and I can’t wait to see what 2015 will bring! My word for 2015 is “Go.” Admittedly “Go” is a prosaic word, but so often I allow an equally banal word - "stop" - hold me back. It's time to stop dreaming, stop wishing, it's time to go! It’s amazing how much meaning a two letter word can have. Go is used in many wonderful phrases when you … [Read more...]
