A Valentine's Day Poem From An Elementary School Student


Hey Everyone,
I can't believe that tomorrow is Valentine's Day already. I guess all these major snow storms we have been getting made time fly. Anyway, when I was in fifth grade, I wrote a poem called Love. It was an assignment for English to create a poem. I won a poetry contest in school for this poem. Since I have always received many positive comments about this poem I wanted to share it with my readers. I felt since Valentine's Day is not far, it would be an appropriate time to share it. 



What do you think? I would love to hear some feedback from my readers.
Happy Valentine's Day to all my fans!!! 

~ Jenn

The Significance Of Color In Our Everyday Life

Did you know that each color has a specific meaning to it, as well as an emotion behind it? Most people do not realize this when choosing colors in our day to day lives.


For example, most of us probably don't think about what the color of our daily outfit communicates to others. We simply pick out something from our closet in the morning, making sure the colors match nicely, add some matching accessories (well if you are a woman), and out the door we go with out a second thought.

Today I want to give you a brief introduction into what I have learned about the meaning of color. Since there is so much information about this topic, I simply could not put it all into one post without boring you to death. lol! So here is a list with the meaning of each color:

Red - power, passion, energy, vitality, aggressive, assertive, lust, madness, luck, pain
Burgundy - sense of self worth, deserving, luxury
Orange - encouragement, motivation, creativity, competence, communication
Yellow - warning, alert, joy, inspiration, stimulation, brightness, intelligence
Green - environment, outdoors, natural, clean, adventurous, renewal, freshness
Blue - honestly, sincerity, loyal, reliability, balanced, calming, peace, protection
Purple - knowledge, intelligence, artistic, compassionate
Black - Strength, power, elegance, death, evil, mystery
White - peace, purity, innocence, perfection

Smart Goal Setting Tips

“It doesn’t matter where you came from. All that matters is where you are going.”- Brian Tracy


Hey Everyone,

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season. Now that the New Year is here, I decided it was time to set some new goals for myself. If you are like me, you most likely have tons of things you would like to do in your life (job, health, self improvement, etc.), and don't know where to start. Therefore, I decided I would post about some tips and tricks I use to help make my goals more attainable and realistic.




First I want to show you some really neat goal setting printables I found on the Buttoned Up® website. First there is a master goal sheet. I really liked this worksheet, as I was able to write down all the goals I wish to work on.

Then the second worksheet enabled me to break down each individual goal by tasks.

If you would like to download a copy of these goal worksheets visit the Buttoned Up ® website here for the master goal worksheet and here for the goal list worksheet.

Want to learn a new skill? Try taking a Free Craftsy Class. You could also try some of the many other classes Craftsy offers for a reasonable price. Here are some that I recommend:


I am currently taking the Scrapbooking With Style: Clean and Simple layouts on Craftsy. So far I really love it. However, I will write more about my experience in a separate post. Now back to goal setting. Here are some tips about smart goal setting. When setting a goal I always use the "SMART" method. 




Specific: Be very specific. If you write a goal that is very broad, it is less likely you will complete it. For example instead if writing I want to lose weight, write I want to lose 10 pounds.

Measurable: When setting a goal make sure you are able to assess your goals on a regular basis. In order to do this, you need to be able to measure or keep track in some way. Using the weight loss example again, write I would like to lose ten pounds by April 1st. This way you will be able to track your progress.

Attainable: Make sure you set realistic goals. If you set a goal to lose 50 pounds in one month, that's not going to happen. It can cause you more frustration. So be realistic.

Relevant: Do your goals have significance in your personal life? Will you actually be able to take the time to do the small tasks needed to reach your overall goal?

Timely: Again, set a deadline. As I said before, you will not only be able to track your progress, but having a deadline seems to help.

Finally, some other good ideas is to give yourself an incentive. For example, if I walk for 30 minutes a day, I can eat one sweet treat a week. Also, make sure you have support. Especially if you are trying to achieve something difficult like weight loss or some other major life goal. Plus you can have them help you be accountable or even cheer-lead you.

What are some of the goals you have set for yourself in the New Year? I would love to hear what everyone is working on.

I am linking up today with Craftaholics Anonymous®.
