Yep. It's true. I am one year older today.
I am wiser I suppose with each year that passes.
I appreciate more now than I have ever in the past. Time is precious. People are precious.
Little things ARE the big things in life.
I have come to the realization that my imperfect life IS perfect. It's mine and I'm so blessed because of it.
This hobby has been a savior for me. I am so thankful to have all of you. I can't tell you how much it means to me when you leave sweet comments and e-mails about my kids. Often that is the "picker-upper" I needed that day. :)
Life's curve balls have made me who I am.
The forty something wife, teacher, mama, friend, neighbor, daughter, sister, crafter, photographer......
Since I know you didn't come here to listen to me become melancholy, I DO actually have a card to share with you. The main image is by Crafty Secret's Digital Flower Garden. I colored it using my Inktense Pencils.
The back panel was a bit of an experiment. I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and my Inktense to trace around the circles. I added a bit of water to "fill in" each circle. It gave the green panel a bit of character and interest I think. The rustic green paper is by Paperloft. I added a few vintage buttons and a bit of trim to finish it off.
I am off to work today!
Have a great day my friends!
