and the winner is..

My favorite is "What would you attempt to accomplish if you knew you could not fail?"

My quote this year for myself is "No More Excuses".

My word for the year is: Shine

Somewhere over the years of being a new mother and wife I forgot that I have many talents and the ability to be an inspiration in many lives. This year I want to shine for my family, in my community and in my church callings.

I can no longer hide my light under a bushel!
Seriously Lauralee wanted to pick everyone and send them something. She is so awesome. So for everyone else she put a seasonal package on her site for only $25! you have to see it to believe it.

here is why she picked Erin.
this just speaks to me.. I feel like there is a lot I have done in my life.. but l have also been really afraid to fail.. like going on my mission.. I was soooooooo scared to walk out the door after the parents meeting at the mtc.. I was the LAST person out the door.. my dad almost had to push me thru it.. but when I got thru I remember thinking.. I did it! I was so excited that I was able to "walk thru the door"
with my business.. which I have actually been doing this work for about 5 years.. and just now.. I am not letting myself make any excuses.. I am going for it!

Lauralee thanks so much for doing this giveaway. I know I just love all my personalized items in my house. She can seriously create anything your mind can come up with. So take a stroll through her site and treat yourself to your word, your quote or your monogram. and thanks to everyone for sharing their awesome quotes!!

Thanks for offering this wonderful give away, if we could all just take a moment (or two) and remember what's really important, maybe we would be a little more like you , Kristi and Lauralee, and give just a little more.

Thanks for helping me remember what's really important!

I, for one, am so glad Lauralee went on her mission. I was blessed to be one of her companions. We had an awesome time together. You're great, Lauralee.

Congrats to Erin! I love her quote, and think I'll have to post that one somewhere I can see it daily. I think living that way would seriously alter the things I do.

What a great word. I think that it's so easy for us to stay busy and take care of everyone else. I'm glad that you're going to be focusing on your talents and what you have to give this year. That's so inspiring.
