Note To Self






Can't believe we are at week ten already, this is really helping to look at my life in a different way. My first thought was to do a card about tidying my house creating an oasis of calm but that is something that will take nore than a week, so what I came up with was note to self "Take a minute to smell the roses." Some days like today my life is just one mad rush and I don't always notice the everyday miracles that surround us all the time. So my vow for this week is to take a few minutes to really see what is around me and try not to take life so much for granted.
The front of the card was made using foam shapes, glitter glue and a huge bit of bling.

Too true! I've been trying to do that a little more lately. I feel like my life is scheduled to the minute sometimes and it was really nice to take a long walk with my daughter and discover a bunch of roly-poly bugs and turn them into balls. I even skipped my dance class to play with her on that walk and I felt great for it all day. :) Your card is great with a great message to remember.
