And the Winner is..........................

I absolutely loved reading all the great words each of you are going to focus on this year. It's exciting to me to begin a new year and to have a new focus.

As I read all the comments I so wished that I could make some sort of reminder for each and every one of you.

And so then I thought..........why can't I?

So that's exactly what I'm going to do!

First, I did choose 3 people to do word reminders just like mine.

So those winners are..........
5= Dory
7= BrickMama
15= Becky (and her sister)

But I'm also going to do something for each of the rest of you. You'll have to wait and see what but they will hopefully be a small reminder to help you keep focus this year.

So, here's what I need from each of you who left a comment on the JOY post to do. Please leave me a comment here and tell me what color(s) you would like for me to use for your word. Choosing colors for projects is always the hardest part for me- so if you'll give me an idea of what kinds of colors are your favorites I'll get started making them and send them to you soon! Also, if I don't already have your address, please email it to me.

I so enJOY doing creative things so I can't wait to get started on this fun project!


  1. I won? I won! I NEVER win!


  2. oh WOW!!! Thanks so much Shannon!!! I can't believe I was randomly chosen either! :o)
    My sister has a white mantle and white built-in shelves in her living room. Her colors are burgandy, greens, and brown tones.
    What a blessing this will be!
    If you want to save postage on mine, you can leave it at the church for me. I have a desk in the Weekday office with Wendy. If you'd rather have my address, e-mail me:

  3. What What........ :)

    Yahoooooooooooo. Hmmmmm...colors- it looks like yours is black and white.....i like that. With a little red, maybe?


    And maybe we could have an official meeting to get my prize. I am often found at the nursery counter on SUnday mornings :)

    THANKS! Just made my day on this crazy week.

  4. Lucky ducks- to have an orginal "Shannon" design! :-D
    Of course, I have one already ;-)
    I'm a green & gold girl- the colors of growing things, sunshine, &...CASH :-)

  5. Congratulations all you winners!! I love anything purple, blue, black.. that area of colors.. any will fit.. I don't really have a "color scheme"!!LOL You're so cool, Shannon. You need to teach us how to do this!

  6. Yeah, you are so cool.
    I am an orange girl!

  7. So... really, everyone's a winner?!?! Yay!
    My colors are earthy tones of browns, reds, beige.
    How sweet of you!

    P.S. I can't tell you how much your post made me THINK. I was much more aware of the lack of mercy I show - the sternness in my voice, the momentary lack of compassion I feel at times... Hopefully, by being more aware, I can be more merciful. Thank YOU!

  8. So fuN!
    I love black &/or brown with reds- all shades of red.
    So fun!
    I will email you my address
    (I think you might have it from mailing coupons?? :)
