IF you DO, you will BE-Ice Resin and Faber Castell bog hop

Be Brave Today-web

I am very excited to share with you this book cover I was inspired to create thanks to ICE Resin and Faber Castell. These 2 amazing companies carry some of my favorite products and I am just thrilled to be a part of this blog hop. Be sure to hop on over to todays other featured blog and see what the wonderful Rita Barakat made.

In case you’re wondering how this wonderful book cover transpired, it all began with a “Mixed Media Journal” I received from Faber Castell. I’ve never had a journal so at first I was a little perplexed by the idea of 6 double sided board pages. I gave it a little thought and decided this was a perfect place to record reminders for each day of the week.

Lately I have been struggling to keep anxiety at bay and have come to realize I am most anxious when I am NOT doing what I am “suppose” to be. After making a list of what I feel are the most important things I need to work on, I came up with a memorable acronym. IF you DO, you will BE.

I=Intention, F=Focus, D=Direction, O=Organization, B=Balance, and E=Excel. Now that the cover is complete I will dedicate a page to each one of these words. You will have to tune back in next week to see what I come up with 🙂
