To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch Heaven. ~Johannes A. Gaertner
Is it just me or do we all love to make stuff?
Paint, paper, scissors, glue, glitter, rubber stamps, chalk
are just a few of my favorite things!
Fresh flowers, moss covered twigs, birds nest, real eggs
birds, fruit trees in bloom, quotes, colorful décor set my
mind in motion. Dreaming and scheming of fun things to
create! I find it exhilarating! Whether it be painting the
walls in a room, gluing oyster shells on a lamp base,
repurposing a vintage travel trailer, gardening, photo-graphing, collaging, collecting, sewing, quilting or 100
other hobbies. I hope you will make time soon to sit down
and create something beautiful. The possibilities are endless
And like the quote above by Elise de Wolfe, you too can
‘Make everything around you beautiful’!
Try creating some of your own gifts and decorations this year.
Some of my fondest gift memories include homemade gifts.
I’ll share some ideas over the next few weeks. Start soon and
keep it simple. Most of all make it fun!
Like a big helium balloon, let your mind go up. It’s where I
find the best ideas.
Happy Thanksgiving Holidays!
