After today I do believe fall weather will officially be here. In order to not be so depressed by the numbers, I installed a weather app with puppies, that way no matter what at least I have cute puppies to look at. Well, the puppies say that today might hit the 80’s but the next nine days will be beautiful fall weather. Yay! Puppies and nice weather!
It is not as hot here right now as it has been, but I have been told that the heat is coming back. Summer is not my favorite. I keep looking at my to-do list and wincing a bit. Somewhere between the heat and running out of one of my meds, my grand plans become much less grand. Well, I just keep on doing what I can and it will all work out when fall shows up, hopefully…
Letting the colors do what they want. It is fun to watch them do their thing. I think sometimes it can be hard to just let go and let whatever happens happen, but that is truly the beauty sometimes. I love this technique because it makes me remember to let go.
In our house we are known to say ‘more to do than can ever be done’. It tends to sum up that feeling of knowing that all of the needs to-dos, and wants to-dos, feel just overwhelming sometimes. When I start to feel this way I actually pull on something that I learned working in kitchens, just focus on the ticket in front of you, it doesn’t matter if you only have one person to serve or an entire houseful all you can do when you are cooking is deal with that one thing in front of you to the best of your ability and all of a sudden you find you have cleared everything.
Loving having flower stamps to play with right now. I don’t know why I didn’t get more in the past. I think I just always have money at holiday time and so I focus on those stamps and this was the first time I was able to do this. It just reminds me to make sure to remember off times as well.
Loving getting to play with new stamps! This card just really came together while I was playing around with the stamps. I love how that can happen. I wanted to see if this would work, and it did, so then I should try this, and that worked too, and they look so nice together, and all of a sudden I realize that I have made a really pretty card.
