Today’s challenge is kind of corny but it is what it is. Create a mad lib. The kids were on spring break so I had them help me and made it about them. The bold words are their fillers.
There was once these kids that were home from car. Boy did they hit me jumped. So much so I breathe muffin. Tomorrow will be a awesome fork or they will roll all day and eat boxes.

Oh courage, where did you go?
I've been on a quest to find you. I realize now that I'm scared of you.
I just don't understand why I hold back. Part of me says I'm just being lazy, the part of me doesn't have a clue. I read an unbelievably inspirational blog post by Kathy Jeffords, she talks about this very thing. I received my regular email from Tara Gentile of Scoutiegirl.com, with headlines that read "Confessions of a fearful blogger." This is me. I thought to myself. I even put off reading it for days because I knew it was something that was going to affect me and it did. I never really knew where I lost my courage, my motivation even but it had been gone. I've tried for years to get my website going. It still to this day isn't what I want it to be. I make many excuses to myself.
My husband is such a wonderful supporter in anything I do. I share my dreams and ideas with him, he gives me the confidence boost and encourages all the way. I just can't seem to do it. I get pumped and ready to go then, don't. It's an awful feeling to. I just couldn't seem to get out of it.
I've been working on "Making Something Everyday for 365" a book by Noah Scalin. This has helped me but even with this I'm behind on my blogging. It's time I listen to my heart more than my brain. Or as my husband says, "don't think, DO!" I love this. It doesn't mean not to put any thought into what you do. He knows more than anyone I over think everything, it gets in the way. It's time I just DO.
After reading Kathy's post I realize, it's time for me to stop being afraid. It's time I found my courage.
Please read Kathy's post if you feel the way I did:
Thank you Kathy and Tara!
Kathy and her site are an inspiration:
I also had the pleasure of attending a great conference call yesterday with Tara Gentile and Bernadette Jiwa. I gained so much from this call but most importantly, "CONFIDENCE IS KEY!"
Tara's site is amazing and has been a huge help to me:
You can listen to the Branding Q&A call here:
Bernadette's site is great too:
Thank you Bernadette and again Tara.
It won't happen over night but I will try my best and continue to remind myself that CONFIDENCE IS KEY!

I used day 36 of 365 for this project. Make something old look new. Finished product was antique looking but still newer. This project was also for a beautiful person. My dearest cousin Emily. My husband helped me a lot with design too. She absolutely loved it!
