Inspiration take ;)

Donna's video super inspired me this week!!! I loved the colors and the iron on on hers so i put my spin on it..... practiced my writing with the dip pen....I think this is the best its ever turned out!!! I hate my hand writing but im learning to deal with it and practice to make it better. The whole page makes me smile.....i think it will be coming out of the book and gracing my walls soon since it matches ;)

I have been doing some reorganizing lately....I purged a ton of stuff a month ago. Its still sitting in my hallway for the garage sale im GOING to have someday soon. I have been inspired by Crafty Storage blog. Check it out and be on the look out for some organizing tips here tomorrow!!!!

When nature speaks..... Listen

I was just at the bookstore having an indepth conversation with my grandma about life, love, growth, and change. In the end I was a little sad and worried about the future and what I need to do. There's so much in life confusing me right now..... So I pull out of the parking lot.....stop at a stop sign and this blows into my lap.....

Sometime nature feels the need to point u in the right direction..... Im crying and listening God :) u and Grandma are right.

Dont usually post mushy feely stuff on here but in 10 years i want to remember this moment.
