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: That’s What Che Said

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...]

One Word Goal: Bombshell Bling

One Word Goal Bombshell Bling

Good morning!! My name is Sarah, and I blog over at Bombshell Bling. I blog about all things colorful, crafty, sinfully tasty, and, of course, BLINGY! Occasionally I also get overly personal, which I suspect I am about to do here . . . ;) I am so pumped that Tauni asked me to be a part of her One Word goals series. Last year my word of the year was "Balance." I am very far from mastering that word, my new friends, but I wanted to switch things up and find another word that was related to balance but more specifically fine tuned to the reason that I really need to find balance: my … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Not Just a Housewife

One Word Goal Not Just a Housewife

My name is Stacy and I blog over at Not Just A Housewife. I have given it a lot of thought and I have finally decided that my word of the year is going to to be Perspective. I love this because it has multiple meanings to me. I don't naturally keep the "big picture" in mind all the time. I have to consciously remind myself that there even is a bigger picture. I love thinking about the fact that this moment right now is just a bleep in time. There is a big fat future waiting ahead of me. My choices are usually affected by the fact that there is more to this moment, more than even this … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Sweet Rose Studio

One Word Goal Sweet Rose Studio

Hi all! Katie here from Sweet Rose Studio and I am so honored to be asked by Tauni to share my one word that I'll use as my compass this year. In 2015, I chose to embrace the word Joy. I've found in the past few years that it's so easy to get wrapped in the negativity and mundane tasks of everyday life. Stress, anxiety, gossip, and doubt have filled so many of my minutes. Instead of falling into the age old trap of finding the worst part of a situation, this year I'm choosing joy. I want to see the positives, enjoy all of the little moments: laugh with my littles (instead of … [Read more...]

One Word Goal: Diary of a Quilter

One Word Goal Diary of a Quilter

My name is Amy Smart and I love to sew in general, but I'm especially partial to designing and sewing quilts. You can visit me at Diary of a Quilter - and if one of your New Year's resolutions is to learn to make a quilt, then I can help you! I don't know if you ever feel this way, but I feel like I am always trying to keep track of 100 things at a time. I frequently feel like a crazy person. I've realized I need to divide my to-do list into three categories: Essential, Necessary, and Nice-to-do. This year my goal is to focus on the ESSENTIALS first. Have you ever heard of that challenge … [Read more...]

There is always quality time … [Read more...]

One Word Challenge: My Sister's Suitcase | Today via @Snapconf

Hey Snap readers! Nat here, half of the crazy sister duo at My Sister's Suitcase. I'm excited to share my word for the new year and how I plan to incorporate it into my daily life. The word I have chosen for 2015 is very simple. Today. This year I am trying to focus on what's most important and what is happening now. Sometimes taking things one day time is the only way I feel like I can stay afloat! (Can anyone relate?) We just welcomed a little baby girl to our family a few weeks before Christmas. While it's been an exciting and very blessed time, it has definitely added to the … [Read more...]
