Happy New Year, dear friends!
I’m so excited that we’re about to share
Another year of creativity and inspired living at

The first few weeks of the New Year are always a
Transitional period for me as I think about
The things I want to accomplish this year and
How to bring them into fruition.
Can you relate?

To help you start your year strong,
This week I’d like to share a few resources that will help you to
Identify and accomplish your goals!

Have an amazing week and be sure to

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer
