I also based this card on sketch #15 at the Card Patterns Blog.
The sentiment on the card is from Papertrey Ink's Out on a Limb Sentiment set. I love this set for cards. The sayings are so meaningful and reflective.
I guess I am feeling a bit reflective myself as I start yet another new role,although stay-at-home-mom is not exactly a new one for me--I definitely feel as if I have to start fresh. I've already started to check off some of the things on my 'to do' list--cleaning out closets and organizing, those kinds of things, as well as thinking and planning what I would like to achieve for myself over the next few months--spending more time with family and friends , participating in more card challenges and making more time to craft.
It's also my birthday this week--yet another reason to prioritize and reflect. Although I have a lot of plans for my son for the upcoming months, I also need to make a bit more time for myself. I already started by getting out of the house on Monday night to make a yoga class at the gym. That was one of the best birthday presents I could have given myself, not only did my body feel great my mind felt completely rested. I guess, like many women out there, I put a lot of pressure on myself to do everything and be everything--a wife, mom, friend, daughter--and although all those things are wonderful, it's important to do something for yourself now and again.
I hope you enjoy,
