Organize your Stuff Week 16 (round 5): OLW Blog Hop

Nihao, Cupcake! Blog Happy March everyone! It is definitely roaring in like a Lion over here, so let’s cross our fingers that it goes out like a lamb!

Today, being the first of the month, is our chance to share our One Little Word homework for the past month. What is One Little Word (OLW)? It is a word that many of us have taken on to represent our year, or discover within ourselves as the year unfolds… (PA Me, stop snickering in the corner, it is rude). Ali Edwards at BPC runs the class (enrollment is always open) and the Intrepid Margie hosts our homework hop! (Thanks Margie!!!), and you most likely came from the blog of Devon!

This Month (February) we were tasked with finding pictures that represent our word… literally or figuratively…in our life. Our word for 2012: Journey, and what a journey it has been!

For those who are not regulars to our blog, Fabulous Spouse has been deployed since December 26th, 2011 to Afghanistan. That in and of itself has been a Journey! We have had power outages and snow storms, crazy kids’ schedules with conflicting sports, scouts and church functions.  The POW had gotten us more deeply involved with the church…so that our spirit can journey… now if only the house could follow suit and journey to cleanliness…*sigh* We cannot have it all... We lost our clone (to do the extra driving), and the laundry fairy is on strike.  At least the cat is getting fed...usually...


Above is Creative Me’s initial nine patch for this prompt. We have the good fortune to Journey down to CKC Portland next weekend, where we are taking a bunch of Photoshop classes. Therefore, we are quite certain that between OCD Me and Creative Me, there will be a little bit of a redo before the next hop on April 1st…well, we are 75% sure. It all depends on how busy life gets!

Thanks so much for stopping by and seeing what we are up to! (hop live at 8AM PST)
