Now on to my project.

My word for 2019 is Try!

I have had this paper for a long time and I love it.  It is one of those pieces of paper that I bought, but never knew what I would use it for because I didn't want to cover up the picture.  Today, I found the perfect use for it.  It also matches my theme of my bedroom, which is where I will be hanging this as a reminder through out the year.

The shells in the bottom right corner have the things I am going to try to do this year.

I hope you have found some inspiration while visiting.
I am the last blog on the hop, but if you just joined us or have not finished hopping through everyone, please hop on over to Connie Can Crop

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
