Hustle Until You No Longer Have to Introduce Yourself

Hustle Until You No Longer Have to Introduce Yourself (c) Art Print by Sweetest Celebrations

There are times when you have to give it your all to make your dreams come true.  These times are tough, but the reward is worth it.  I’ve been working on my business for a few years now, and it’s finally starting to shape into what I always dreamt of.  This hasn’t been easy, though, and I keep many motivational quotes at hand to keep me going.  When I found this one, it was perfect, since in my industry, I go to many events and work with many talented people I admire greatly, and in the beginning it was really hard being the ‘newbie’.  I’m glad I stayed true to my vision though and took the time to connect with others on a one to one basis, in person and virtually.  This was hard, but so worth it.  Now when I am at an event, it’s so nice to be welcome by people who have actually become good friends of mine, and people I don’t know actually approach me knowing who I am before I introduce myself.

Whatever you do, do it with purpose, and even though it may take time to reach your goals, stay focused and the reward will be great.  I hope this quote motivates you too, and that you find a home for it so you can see it often and stay on track.

{a freebie for you} advent cards for your sweetest ones…

Ok, I’ll admit, I’m a little late to the party this year.  Last year, I created a set of hand written advent cards with little messages and treats for my little ones, and I swear I saved them so I wouldn’t have to do it all over again…BUT we took out all the decorations for Christmas this weekend when we put our tree up, and they were NOWHERE to be found…

Well, we did find Pepito, thankfully – our very own ‘elf on the shelf’, so I asked my husband to create a handwritten note for the kids on the first of December to kick off our advent tradition again, but it’s only the third day and we’ve already fallen behind.

I know it’s late, but hopefully my kids won’t notice.  I created these simple advent cards, using a place card template I use for weddings, which can be customized as needed for each day in advent.  It simply states the number of each day, with a short message “It’s time for…” which can be completed on the inside of the small tent card.  I simply didn’t have the energy right now to come up with 25 advent tokens, and thought it was best if I left it open to fill out as the month unfolds and so I could reuse them again in the future!

I’ve got some ideas I definitely want to reuse from last year, and hopefully you can draw inspiration from these too…

  • It’s time for a holiday sing-along party!
  • It’s time for ice cream sundaes
  • It’s time for a family movie night
  • It’s time for a fun Christmas craft activity
  • It’s time for you to find your new Christmas PJs
  • It’s time for us to bake holiday cookies

Well, if you are like me, and don’t mind being a bit behind with some traditions, I hope you enjoy the free printable –  Advent Cards (click the link to download the PDF).

Oh, yeah, and while I was at it, I also designed our family’s holiday cards, since (again) I fell behind on ordering these online this year and really didn’t think I could get these out on time unless I did them myself.  I hope to print these out soon, so I can get them out to those of you on my NICE list this year…stay tuned, as I’ll be happy to share the photo online once they’ve been mailed.

Until next time, Stay Sweet!
