Today marks the 2nd Day of Kwanzaa. Today's principle is Kujichagulia (koo-jee-chah-GOO-lee-ah) meaning Self-Determination.  

Yeh...yeh...but how can I win?  

It's easy!  For today let's show our self-determination by sharing our intentions for the coming new year.  All you have to do is leave a comment here telling us about your resolutions/intentions for 2011!  And there is always someone who says, "To put God first!"  Well, let's just say for those who would say's a given.  Tell us something we don't know...tell us about your other goals. What one, two or three things are you going to focus on?  What will be your reality in 2011?  Just leave a comment here with your answer and you are entered.  That's it.  Easy, peasy.  Then tomorrow not only will I announce a winner, share a picture of their prize but I'll also announce a new challenge for another chance to win!  Yay!  We'll do it again and again for the rest of the week!  So check in each day because you won't know what the challenge is or the prize.  You've got to play to win.  Please note:  all prizes will be mailed at the end of the giveaway, because each day you enter you could win and I just want to send 1 package to each winner!  Also, due to the cost of shipping, this giveaway is limited to US & Canada Residents only.)  


  1. for the year 2011, i want to improve me--mentally, spiritually, financially and physically--plus there's room for more if needed!
    remain blessed and good luck to everyone participating!

  2. I am going to focus on me- finding out who I really am and what my priorities are beyond my faith and family. What do I love. What do I need to let go?

  4. My 3 main goals for 2011 are:
    1. Adopting and maintaing a healthy lifestyle. Tired of the yo-yo dieting.
    2. Working on my relationship. I tend to get cold feet whenever the discussion comes up about spending the rest of my life with my BF. I'm going to let go of the commitment fear syndrome and step out on faith. I realized that after dating for 3 years, we don't have any pictures that we've taken together so I'm starting a new scrapbook about us in 2011.
    3. Volunteering! - I love to volunteer with different agencies and in 2011 I'm going to give a little more time volunteering in the community.

  5. My main goals for 2011 are to get organized and stay that way; loose weight for good; start exercising maybe join a Zumba class and spend more 'date' time with my husband. I hope to also get more srcap time in and to let my daughter help me (practice on my patience).

  6. This year I want to focus on eating healthier and getting regular exercise. I'm going to prioritize getting my home in order and crossing off all the To Dos that seem to linger around forever. I'm also going to focus on stepping out of my comfort zone more whether its in scrapbooking, style of dress, or social interactions. I like safe and easy, but this year I'm going to stretch myself so I end the year with even more joy than I started it.

  7. Habari gani?....Kujichagulia!
