Friendship Card and Kick Starting My LIfe

 Just a simple card I made with a long retired Stampin Up set "Old Friends".  This is one stamp set that I used a few times.  My plan is to go through my rubber stamps and use each one at least once then sort through them and decide which ones I'm going to sell and which I'm going to keep.

By using the stamp or with some not use, I'll get a "feel" on whether it's time to let it go.  There are some stamps that I'll probably keep forever and there are quite a bunch that I'm now wondering why I purchased them in the first place.  LOL!

I actually wrote a long story about something that has been plaguing me for the past few months but decided it was too personal and deleted what I wrote.  It was too long of a story anyway.  

I have a few plans to kick start my life starting this coming week.  In January I did not create a new year resolution which I normally do every year because for some reason or another,  I was in a weird mood at the beginning of the year.  Actually it started in October.  I became a pessimist when I've always been an optimist.  I lost something inside of me for some odd reason.  I don't even know why or how it happened.  I just suddenly felt like it was useless to set goals because they won't work out anyway. . .blah, blah, blah.  Very moody, I tell ya! I even stopped FBing which for those who are on my FB know I'm a crazy FBooker who post about everything and anything. . .and for that to stop, well something is wrong.  

But the good news, I think I'm beginning to wake up from my deep slumber. I think my normal self is emerging again. .. hence, my blogging again.  Besides, I think I do better in accomplishing goals when I write them down publicly, whether it's on FB or my blog so I think I'm going to blog or FB whatever it is I'm going to do.  It's nothing crafty. . .sorry.  It's more about life changes.. . .like living a healthier lifestyle, career, life adventures and maybea  little bit of crafting here and there. . .:)
Anyway, that's it for today.  Hope you all have  a wonderful weekend.

Hi Maria,
Love this card, and love the image. The design paper and sentiment are so perfect together as your ribbons.
I think we all go through dry spells in our life, it is a time to reflect on the purpose of our life.

Awesome card as always Maria, Love that image.
Making a decision is like a breath of fresh air eh? I know because I did the same thing ( with my blog ) and it feels great. You have to do what you feel in order to be/feel right in your own skin.
Others are just along for the ride if we'll have them.
