Design Team - Ivytree Studio

Happy New Year
I am very happy to announce on this first day of 2017 that I am back on
on a design team.  It is going to be an interesting and busy year with lots of new beginnings for me.
A new job, a couple of side line jobs and now the design team.
Ivytree studio have some very wise words for 2017

1. Never ever give up! Just keep moving forward one step at a time as that is the Light God gives.
2. Don't follow anyone else's way of doing things. Follow Christ and the Holy Spirit. Father knows best.
3. Work hard.
4.  Rest when you are tired.
5. Make time for God and family first.
6. Always try to give the best service you can for any client. Their loyalty is your reward and you never know who will become your best client.
7. Don't disregard small beginnings. You don't know where you will end up.
8. Don't let stress take over your life. Manage it.
9. Remember God is King and clients and service providers are not. Keep your perspective.
10. Don't let other people's bad attitudes become your focus or influence you to the point of giving up. The best thing you can do is to live your life well and to know that you are loved, blessed and favored by a God who cannot wait to see what you do next with the gifts He gave you. Keep looking up and keep moving forward.
11. Dream big because your God is big. He brings solutions to the table you didn't even think about.
12. Change is part of life. Growth is a process. Comparison kills creativity. Be a trend setter.
13. The challenges and resistance you face are actually part of the learning curve you need to become the person God wants you to be, to grow your business the way God wants you to grow it and nothing, no lesson is in vain. You were meant to experience the things you did, so you would know how to proceed, what pitfalls to sidestep and which directions to take and which not to take. Take note of every experience. It is valuable.
and last but not least....
Always always always trust God for every step.  If you build your life on anything else, it is shaking sand. The accolades of men will not give you the life you dream of or the life you need to be happy. What will give you true happiness and contentment is to know that you lived the life God intended for you. Don't follow your heart, lead your heart. Guard it, for it is the wellspring of Life.

I am so looking forward to working with Ansu and Surita, they got me scrapping again, how is that for inspiration!! To learn more about these inspirational ladies please stop by here .  Congratulations to my fellow DT members as well, I think we are very blessed to be chosen as the first DT.

      Watch this space for some creative awesomeness.

My wish for you, my friends, is that you make the time to be creative.  It is very important for the    soul.  Let that be your new years resolution.

Don't forget we have the very first South African National Scrapbook Day happening on January 28. 
If you have not already done so, contact one of the area co-ordinators nearest to you.  There will be a great deal of fun.  Bring along a friend and scrap the day away.  There will be teachers that can assist you, some fun easy challenges and some retail therapy.
