Smile and Be Happy!

I'm sure you have heard the line Fake It Until You Make It. It may sound silly, but it can really work. If you smile, even it you have to work at smiling, it does make you feel happier. There are lots of ways to get to a smile that are not hard to do, and thinking of someone we love is an easy one. As you think of that person, and how much you love or appreciate them, you start to smile from inside. My card today celebrates the people that bring us that joy and make our lives better.

Live With Passion

Live with Passion is such a good motto to live by. For anyone that knows me, you know that I can get very passionate about things I believe in. I try to live each day to the fullest, loving life and all it has to offer. Of course I'm human and have bad days, but I try to focus on the positive, and live my life with gratitude. It is just as easy to find the good things in life as the not so good, the choice is up to each of us.

Loving What I Do

As a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator I love what I do.

I have flexibility in my work schedule, have learned lots of new things, and . . . I get all my crafting supplies at a discount!!

Calm and Tranquil

I find nature to be very calming, especially when we take time to slow down in our hectic lives and really see and appreciate the beauty around us. When I look at the card I made for today, I feel a sense of calm and tranquility and it always makes me happy.

A Great Upcycle Project

Yesterday we celebrated my daughter's birthday, so now I can post this super fast and easy upcycle project for you. My daughter loves everything from Bath and Body Works, and I must admit that I really like them too. In addition to their wonderful products, they have super cute bags with a blue check pattern. The bags also include a great big logo, so they are not perfect to use as a gift bag as is, but that is easy to fix.
