Zeus and Zoe........January Challenge

The January Challenge at Zeus and Zoe is based on a word........your chosen word for 2013.
We'd love you to play along with us and all the details to do so are HERE, as well as a peek at the fabulous prize from Maja Design.
My chosen word is FOCUS. For a few members of my family this is a year where it's going to be very important to set goals, focus on only them and how to achieve them and not be distracted.
For myself, personally, I'm focussing on my family, my health and my art "my way".

My page is made up almost entirely from gorgeous "vintage" trinkets supplied to me in my Zeus and Zoe kit from Marivic Cliftons Etsy Store. If you are a fan of Finnabairs' (Anna Dabrowska) style then these kits, that can be made to order, are perfect. Zeus and Zoe are currently looking for new Design Team members, so if you enjoy working with beautiful and unusual vintage embellishments then I would encourage you to apply. All the details are below.

Zeus and Zoe Blog and Etsy shop is looking for enthusiastic, reliable, and friendly new DT members. We’re looking for Mixed Media artists, scrapbookers, card makers, or any crafters that would like to play with one-of-a-kind vintage items.
As a DT member you will be required to do 2 monthly projects. This term will start in March 2013 and will end in July 2013. You will be assigned certain days of the week every month in which you will post your completed projects on our blog. During your term, you are required to do 1 tutorial and host 1 monthly challenge.
You must have a blog and you must have good photography skills. You will also help us promote Zeus and Zoe blog and Etsy shop any way you can, as long as it is allowed, either on Facebook or scrapbook galleries.
As a compensation, you will receive kits from me containing vintage items worth a few hundred dollars. You will also receive 30% off discount on my etsy shops or any custom kits.
