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...]

One Word Goal: Infarrantly Creative

One Word Goal Infarrantly Creative

Hello there! And welcome to 2015! My name is Beckie and I blog over at Infarrantly Creative. I am a wife and mom to two little people and just moved in late August to Columbus, Ohio. I am really excited about this ONE WORD CHALLENGE. Like Tauni, I am incredibly goal-oriented and I love evaluating in order to bring about change. Do you remember yourself as a teenager or a young adult? I remember that girl. Full of life. Willing to take huge risks. Afraid of nothing. Hopeful, Excited and Energetic. A lover of people and giver of her soul. What happened to that girl? Pain, expectations, … [Read more...]

One Word Challenge: Tauni

One Word Challenge: Tauni | Focus via @SnapConf

Oh goodness. It's been so much fun to read all of the amazing posts that have been shared as part of our One Word Challenge! I can't tell you how much I appreciate both the participation of all the ladies who've been sharing the words they've selected as a part of this series. They have been very generous with their time and efforts. Having said that, I have been absolutely BLOWN AWAY by how many of you have emailed, grammed and tweeted your own words. YOU are amazing! I've never set overly complicated New Year's Resolutions for myself. It probably has more to do with my love for making … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Laura’s Crafty Life

One Word Goal Lauras Crafty Life

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...]

One Word Goal: Sugar Bee Crafts

One Word Goal Sugar Bee Crafts

Hi Everyone - I'm Mandy and I blog at Sugar Bee Crafts and I absolutely LOVE the SNAP Conference and SNAP Creativity - I'm excited to be part of this One Word Goal Series. I love hearing about what other people are focusing on, and gaining new insight and ideas and motivation for myself. I feel like my life has been go-go-go and busy and all those things that I'm sure lots of you can relate to. Last year was a crazy one for us (and my word was appropriately CHANGE as we embraced tons of new things). And so this year I want to slow down, focus on building a foundation for life. 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...]

One Word: The Shabby Creek Cottage

One Word Goal Shabby Creek Cottage

Hi Snap readers! I'm Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage and I'm uber excited to be here on the Snap blog! I love the Snap Conference, and as a two time speaker, I can tell you it's one of the best experiences you can have as a blogger. It's fun and loving and totally my vibe, so when Tauni asked me to share my word of the year with you, I couldn't say no. I've never really had a formal "word of the year" before - I just tend to focus on one main goal, which is usually weight loss (keepin' it real, yo.) But when I turned 40 this year I realized that life is too short, so you should do the … [Read more...]

One Word Goal Thats What Che Said

Hello friends! My name is Cheryl and I live over at That's What Che Said. As you can see from my photo above, I am a mom of THREE BOYS! My oldest is 8, my second is 4 and my newest addition, who I refer to as Spangenbaby, joined us in July of 2014. I am honored to be here today to share with you my word for 2015 and share a bit of me with you as well. My word is ENJOY. I don’t remember much about my previous pregnancy because I had a 3 year old running around, an hour commute (each way) and a full time job. My husband travelled for his job weeks on end and often I was left to be … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Honeybear Lane

One Word Goal HoneyBear Lane

Hello! My name is Heidi and I blog at Honeybear Lane. I usually blog about DIY, crafts, and other things like that but today I want to take a minute to talk a little bit about myself. I'm not gonna lie, 2014 was one of my most challenging years. We built a new house, my husband got a new, incredibly busy position at work, his mother passed away as well as my grandpa. But summing it up like that doesn't really touch how stressful all these things were for me. It was crazy! It was also a great year for me career wise. It was one of the first times when I just kept going without getting too … [Read more...]
