Awww, Snap! {It’s A Giveaway}


As promised I am here to deliver a pretty rad giveaway to kick off this new year and to say a big “Thank You” to all you crazy kind folks who read my little tiny piece of the internet.  And especially for all the love and encouragement and prayers you have sent our Kelley family this past year.  I can’t say thank you enough.  Really and truly.  You are all too, too kind.

8×10 1 Corinthians 16:14 canvas “Do everything in love.”

5×7 2013 canvas

There you have it…3 canvases and 3 different winners.

Thank you again so much.  I really appreciate you stopping by and reading about our crazy little life.

Happy Monday.

    One of my many goals this year is to enjoy being a mom more and stop stressing about the little things! I LOVE being a mommy, but I haven’t quite figured the balance of schedule/housework/wife stuff/mom stuff. I’m pregnant with my second baby due in July, and I want to really really enjoy this time with my sweet 2 year old boy and not worry if my house is a mess. I want to have fun with him, and be a more laid back mommy with my second baby.

    One of my 2013 goals is to take care of myself. I can be stubborn about going to the doctor, and many other things, but now that I have a child, I want to keep my family in better shape/health.

  163. In 2013, I’m going to stop trying to work everything out and trust God to do it. So far, so awesome. 🙂

  164. For 2013 my resolutions include organizing my life. I work full time and have two kids and I NEED to get more organized so that I can have more time with my family and less time trying to clean up the messes my disorganization brings on me….

    And to teach the concept of random acts of kindness to my children. They are only 3 and 5, but I know they can do random acts of kindness.

  165. My husband and set our running goal at 600 miles this year. Are we crazy? Maybe. But we love spending that time together after work and on the weekends, and it has become my favorite “thinking” time … never thought I’d say that, but it’s true! I also have a goal of reading 15 books this year. Happy New Year!

  166. My hope is that both of my children and my husband feel so loved that they each think that they get the most and best of me every single day. I’m praying for patience with this and peace. I want kindness overflowing from my house!

  167. And just shared on Twitter (which will also feed into my Facebook timeline). Fingers crossed! I need some of your art in my house. Like yesterday.

    This year, after 3 surgeries for myself last year and my father in law being in the hospital for over 5 months now, due to a messed up surgical procedure…I am praying for good health and happiness for our family and loved ones. I realize that, good health and love is more important than anything else in the world.

  186. In 2013 I hope to become a better steward of everything God has given me (including time!). This is also going to involve giving away so much of the “stuff” I have but don’t use, hoping it will bless someone else. Gonna be a great year!!!!

  252. My main goal for 2012 is to be a better mother, to try and have more patience and not let everyday life distract me from spending the important time with my kids 🙂

  253. I already like your FB page 🙂

  254. And already subscribe 🙂

  255. I love all of these canvases, but my favorite is the “Do everything in love” canvas! I really, really want to win it! 🙂 My main goal for 2013 is to abide in Christ continually and consistently. This is what our sermon was about at church yesterday and it really spoke to me. Our preacher said that if we do this, we will receive from Christ what we need to be fruitful…your fruitfulness depends on you abiding in Christ. If we abide in Christ our lives will be filled with the fruit of the spirit and we will hopefully bring others to Jesus. We will know what to pray and we will be able to pray in God’s will. We will have joy as a Christian, confidence as we anticipate the second coming and spiritual sustenance. Who doesn’t want all of those things, right?! I really needed to be reminded of this and am making it my goal to try really hard to do this.

  256. Margie Braidfoot says:

    I saw my friend Amanda’s post about this. I especially like the one about the “wild and precious life”, cause that’s definitely what I am living!! I definitely think we need to focus more on LOVE in 2013. Thanks for doing this and have a GREAT day ~

    In 2012 I’ve had trouble with self confidence, believing in myself, and trying new things. My goal for 2013 is to expand my horizons and be me without fear. I am beautiful and a great person and this year I am going to do whatever it takes to be the best me I can be. I’m going to tell myself everyday that I am wonderful and try something new every chance I get. I hope you have a wonderful 2013 Mrs. Kelly and thank you for sharing your story with me.

    I didn’t make any resolutions this year because I know I won’t be able to keep them, but of course there are things I want to do even if I didn’t make them official. First: I want to stop procrastinating my school work so I can go to our community college next year.
    Second: I have been training in karate for almost 5 years and I am going to try to earn my black belt this year.

  276. This year I would like to learn to praise God. I would also like to know his will concerning selling our house and adoption.

  277. One of my goals for 2013 is to be Jesus with skin on. I love this expression! Our new pastor, Alex Kennedy, says that we should all be Jesus with skin on. If I approach each day that way, I know I’ll be more in His will!!

I think we could be great friends, if you lived near us 🙂 LOL Such an inspiration to all who read your blog. I even gave the Salvation Army guy a box a chocolates b/c of you 🙂 Thanks!

    Entry 1 – As far as 2013, I would say I would hope to be a better Christian Mother and Wife. I just love watching how the Lord works in our lives, but I just pray that he would help me serve him and be a light to others (especially in my home) in this dark world we live in.

  431. My goal is to be more intentional with my family and to love well.

  432. This is/are my Goal/Goals for 2013:
    “I had only one real goal for 2013, and that was to take care of myself. I cannot cure the cancer in my body. But, there are so many things that I can do to function better. Not just caring for my physical body, but also addressing some emotional things. And, more/most important to me, is to make a real effort to connect with Jesus more. To make Him the Priority of every single day!

    And, there is something else that has been on my heart and mind, is to be intentional with giving Thanks to others. So, those are the goals and hopes for this New Year, 2013.”

  433. I already subscribe to PPA via email. I subscribe through my main email address, mkarenmoseley at aol dot com

  434. Instead of a resolution, I decided to go with the word trend this year because I figured that would be something more simple to keep in my mind this year. I chose “light.” I want to be more of a light to others this year (and focus less on myself!).

  613. Goals/hopes for this year are to finally start living life as our new family of 5. We have been waiting for a bit to finally be “done” with our family and now that we are I can’t wait to start living it!!!!

  654. While I was busy posting away I got an error message that said, “You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.” That pretty much sums up my goals for 2013. Life moves at a crazy fast pace if you allow it, and I’ve been allowing way too much of that. So this year I want to slow it on down and enjoy life a little more with my almost one year old twins, amazing hubby, and wild dog Astro. I love this idea – you can’t get time back. I can’t get back what I’ve already given away, but I can sure make the most of the time ahead of me. Cheers!

  655. I actually just blogged about my goals for this year… #2 just so happened to be: Be more joyful.
    Spend less time stressing and more time enjoying.
    Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds. James 1:2

  730. I’m not really one for resolutions, but I do like to pick a word out for the year. My word that I am going to focus on is joy. I am getting married in March of this year and I want to enoy every little first thing that I get to experience with my new hubby 🙂 Also, I just want to celebrate and be JOYFUL for all the wonderful blessings that I have received. I hope that this year I can find joy even when it isn’t so evident in my life, and learn that true and real joy comes only from the Lord.

    Laura, you are awesome! I have been reading your blog for about a year now. Praying for you and your totally wonderful little family 🙂

  731. 2013 goals and hopes…the focus for our family is to take I John 3:18 to an even deeper level. 2012 found us just starting to scratch the surface on some amazing things God put before us. I believe 2013 is going to rock.

  732. I subscribe to PitterPatterArt posts by email.

  738. One of my goals for this year is a lot like yours. I’m trying to let go more….to give up trying to control things I already know aren’t mine to have or do or worry about. It’s not about feeling hopeless or helpless, but more about taking a breath and relaxing my grip on things that I spend to much time worrying over. When I do creative things, I always take a step back, let it go for a bit, and come back to it later. So that’s the plan in other areas, too!

  739. Already “liked” on Facebook. (Not sure if this one counts, since I was already there.)

  740. Goal for 2013 find a cool new way to raise funds for our future adoption, by providing some type of service to others!

  741. I have a few goals for 2013. First is to be a healthier me, like 40 lbs. lighter, by my next birthday in December. A healther me, is a happier me…and everybody knows if Mama is happy…everybody’s happy!
    My 2nd goal is to finish up a couple of classes that have been lurking from the past. When I get these done, I will be done with the first phase of Paraeducator Certification. Woohoo!
    My 3rd goal is to get rid of the clutter. Going through boxes of clothes & just “STUFF” that I have, but that we don’t really need. Inch by inch…it’s a cinch, or so they say. So, my plan is to not look at the BIG picture, but to take it little steps at a time. This will free up space in my home & also just make everybody a little (STRIKE THAT!) a LOT happier.

  811. Angie kahler says:

    My goal I guess, I kind of don’t like new years resolutions, I think that we should be having hearts that are open to God removing our ‘idols’ all the time. So what God is showing me right now, is to be respectful to my husband, know who I am in Him, and love no matter how I feel or what has been done to me.

  812. I am a fan on Facebook!!

  819. My goal for 2013 is to focus on The Holy Spirit. To walk each day in cognizance of His presence.
