life lessons...

 
 A few things that I've learned along my journeys:

Take life at your own pace, no need to compare yourself to other people or their timelines.

As long as you set your goals and work to acheive them, everything will fall into place eventually.. 

It's not worth the time or the effort stressing about what everyone else is doing...

You find friends in the places you least expect to...
When you find someone who gets who you really are, keep them in your corner...

In the morning, what was bothering you the day before seems a lot less important than it was yesterday...

It's better to have a few close friends, than a bunch of acquaintances...
 
Absence and distance do make the heart grow fonder...

Nature's beauty has a powerful  effect on your mood. It can uplift and soothe a soul...

Do something everyday that makes you truly happy...

Have a hobby, it can be the ultimate stress reliever...


Welcome back friends,
 It's been awhile, yes; I know. Still on the search for my elusive mo-jo. It's coming back slowly..it's a process. I completely forgot about this little card that I had made one night, for some challenge or another, and never posted. A little contemplation on life's lessons along this journey of mine...it's a list I know I will be adding to as time goes by. Somedays you just have to stop and think about all that you've learned and are exposed to.
I stuck to the shabby, vintage look this time again. It's one I find to be so comforting. Some days I struggle with getting it right, and other times creativity just flows right out through my fingers. I had fun distressing the frame with paints and Glimmer mist, Distress Ink and such.. it has such a great shimmer in person. I've been trying to find the right spot in the house to photograph my cards; most of the time they end up too washed out or too dark. One day soon I hope to get it right.
I will be back shortly with a project I've been creating for myself. Have been wanting to get at all the great challenges lately but feel I need to complete something special just for me, to get that spark back...I hope to post some sneak peeks tomorrow.
Until then,
Thanks for your visit!
