What I love most about the Spring season, is the fresh new colors! The inspiring array of pinks and yellows and aquas. What I hate most about Spring?
Reality. What I mean is, the dusty roads, the muddy, dead grass and brown, brown everything – brown everywhere. This town is at its ugliest in the spring. So, it’s nice to make things inside floral and lovely.
Hence, the floral monogram project! You can buy these lovely pieces from etsy for $80 – $130.
I’m sorry, did you just choke? ‘Cause I nearly did when I saw the price. But my dear friend Pinterest showed me a better way. And it’s basically as easy as 1, 2, 3!
1. Draw letter on cardboard.
2. Cut out letter.
3, Cut and glue dollarama/ dollar tree flowers on letter.
An S for my girl’s nursery! I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
And guess what I spent?
A whopping $6.00. Yup, Six. And now I have a little bit of Spring in my suite! 🙂
Okay. I’m not new, and I’m not exactly better. Yet.
But, I’ve decided to reboot this blog. It has been years since I last wrote, plus I want to take on a new direction. While I hope to still share some reflections, I want to also dive into the world of crafts, upcycling, Pinterest and the like!
On a side note, I now have a little blessing that keeps me busy, so posts may be a little sparse at first! But I hope you’ll still follow along with me. 🙂
Looking forward to making some changes. There’s a world of possibilities out there, friends, big and small! 😉
Can one lose their joy for writing almost as quickly as they had found it? Are personal deadlines or goals, in the world of writing, creativity ( and ultimately, productivity ) killers?
‘Cause I think I’ve hit the Wall…
In this blog, for the most part, I have kept the focus on faith; Anything recently learned or discovered; anything that inspires or challenges me…
No spiritual journey is a smoothly sailed one. Or, others might say, what goes up, must come down.
Often, that is me; UP down UP down UP down.
I’m trying to write an article; so far, I have a rather large portion of it completed. Now, it is just a matter of filling in the blanks, then making it really come to life. Making it enjoyable to read, interesting; something that perhaps might even encourage and inspire others!
As it stands, most of the article is as vague and dull as this following sentence:
The sky is nice.
One might ask, ‘What does that even mean?? Is it night? Is it day? Is it cloudy? Starry? Blue or pink or lavender?’
Perhaps one writes best, when with all their heart.
And maybe it’s one of those days, where my heart’s
So then, how does one refresh their soul, and get back in the game?
I want to write another blog, but what should it be about?
The strikes, the victims, or a political log; or the teapot, short and stout?
Don’t want it to be boring, or come off as overly critical.
Don’t want to vent, or rant or rave, or paint me as hypocritical.
I could write about love and beauty, and dear things that warm a soul;
Or I could write embellished tales, like sleeping in the New Year’s cold.
But the sun is warm and bright, and in its rays I wish to lie,
If only for just 5 minutes, this stuffy nose would remain dry!
The lilies bloom, the birds are chirping; how I want to join such splendor!
Wispy clouds roll lazily, in a blue sky I’ll soon be under.
From nothing, to God’s creation, this blog poem has evolved.
That’s it, I cannot sit idly by, I want to be involved!
To smell the lilacs, touch the trees, taste the berries so wild;
Forget I’m sick, and appreciate the blessing of being God’s child.
