Color trends for 2007

ColorblocksHere are some colors that are predicted to be big in fashion for the upcoming 2007 Spring/Summer fashion lines. As most of you know, scrapbooking usually takes many color/style cues from fashion and home decor lines, so it will be interesting to see how many of these colors actually end up flooding our paper and embellishment lines! I am predicting lots of purples mixed with neutral colors, such as black, grey, and white. What are your predictions? I am loving the peachy-salmon colors - those are my favorites!

I hope that some of these colors inspire you!

Begin with the end in mind!

Lately I have done so much reflecting. Much reflecting on what I have learned from my past experiences, what I want for my family for the future, where my priorities lie (or where they SHOULD lie), and lots of other things. Next month I turn 33 and I guess that as I get older, I start to realize the blessings that I have and the things in life that are important to me. I realize that I have life goals that I want to achieve and that I need to be working every day to do something, even if small, to achieve those goals. I have goals for many things - personal relationships, business, family matters, and my faith. As I think about my goals and what I want to achieve, I am reminded of this quote:

  • "Begin with the end in mind." - Stephen Covey

I know where I want to be in my life; now I start working from my end goal to make the decisions now that will lead me there.

Can you relate? Are there people in your life that you have taken for granted? Are there dreams that you have given up on because "life" got in the way? It is never too late to make changes.

I have made some phone calls and e-mails to some very important people in my life.  :) I have also begun to analyze exactly what I need to do to reach my "end result"; to put into motion my plan of action to achieve my goals. I hope you will, too!
