StampinByHannah Thoughtful Thursday One Little Word March 2018
In January I started a year long mindfulness project. One Little Word is a fabulous self-paced class from Ali Edwards that encourages you to pick a focus word for the year. My word is Grow… and I am encouraging myself to grow as a person, develop coping strategies for my anxiety, loose weight, and really focus on some me time. And that is what my One Little Word album gives me, Me Time.
Each month Ali gives a prompt to help you focus on your word, and March was the ‘Practice’ month. This was our opportunity to challenge ourselves to complete something each day of the month (As you can see… I didn’t quite manage mine). My personal goal this month was to do 9000 steps a day. Now, this is super easy when I’m working my day job, but MUCH harder when I’m crafting and blogging and running my business. The fact that I haven’t managed 9000 steps every day isn’t a failure, its another opportunity for growth (get it!)… and my goal will continue into April.
March was my ‘New Me’ month… I know most people do this sort of re-set in January, but March works SO much better for me! By now we have got past both mine and James’ birthdays, all the festive chocolate has long gone, plus James has just finished his degree and actually started his job this week (can you tell I’m excited about that!)… so my March step goal was my lead into my new health and fitness plan. I started Slimming World on Monday, so that combined with my steps, and a goal to exercise more… the new, slimmer me, should be coming soon!
Seeing as March is the end of a quarter I thought I would share a video of my album so far. I hope you enjoy, but do let me know if you want to see these more regularly, as I can do them monthly or maybe even as a process video if that is what you would like to see!
Each month Ali gives us some fabulous print-ables, and this month we got a monthly tracker, as well as a fun practice card. However, seeing as this month’s spread was a little sparse on the crafting I decided to create my own! Most of my album so far has used the Perfect Days Memories and More card pack, and so I grabbed one of the 6 x 4″ cards. Unfortunately Stampin’ Up! doesn’t currently have an alphabet stickers, and I don’t have any alphabet stamps that were the right size. So I dug into my stash (I have a draw of contraband goodies that I use for scrap-booking… and my wedding album!) and found these fun Chipboard letters. They were actually a funky red colour, but a Sharpie Marker quickly took care of that!
