Random winners and featured artists for February

A huge thank you to everyone who shared their beautiful creations in the February link-up. The month of February was an extremely busy and productive month for me. I have managed to get my house in order by de-cluttering and tidying, my house was in a huge mess. I intend maintaining a strict routine to keep everything running smoothly at home and I have also stopped shopping for unnecessary things as I really don't need to add more items to my house. To get me on this new path I read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up : The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo. I can honestly say that this simple book has helped me change my life,  I am not naturally a neat person and this book has helped me put in place processes that will make my life easier and help me with my goal to keep everything neat and tidy. Another thing I want to share is since I finished working at my full-time job in December 2014 I have changed for the better when it's come to my spending habits. I used to be a shopaholic and I think it was because I took money for granted, having limited funds has made me curb my spending drastically and I am extremely grateful for this as I now understand the value of money and I only purchase what I truly need. I was extremely regretful for all the money I had wasted in the past but I am finally able to go forward and make a new start when it comes to spending and this is a huge thing for me, I'm so much happier with a simpler and more mindful life. I hope you'll don't mind me sharing all this, I feel it's appropriate as this is a blog to promote tenacity and positivity.  If any of you would like to share something you are proud off, something that has changed you're life don't be afraid to leave a comment on this post. It doesn't have to be anything great, just something that has helped you live a more fulfilled life and could perhaps help others, sharing is caring.

And now back to all the beautiful work being shared at JKOC. It's always great to see the loyal participants of JKOC continue to share their work and it's fantastic to see new people submit their work as well. Everyone's entries are truly amazing and there was such a variety of entries in the February link-up. I sincerely apologize again about not being able to comment on all the submissions, I hope to comment on each submission from now on, although I haven't commented on all submissions please be assured that every submission is very much appreciated. Thanks so much for letting me share my thoughts in this post and I look forward to seeing everyone's work in the March link-up.
