I've decided to focus on the things that make me happy. Why? Well I found out this week that someone I know from work, who is not much older than me, had a bad stroke. It made me think about my own life and the good and not so good things going on there. Life is too short! I don't mean this in a selfish way either. I want to be a happy person and I really am the happiest when I am helping others, and when I am creating and learning new things and trying new things, spending time with my DH and my children. So I am vowing to do more of that and less of the things that seem to stress me out. I am walking down a bold new path. There are still some things I want to be able to do in my own life and I am going to focus on those things.
Now for some fun news. We all like give aways, right? Well I won one over at Red Fish Circle! This is the blog of Amy Schimler, a wonderful fabric designer and artist. She has done the On a Whim series, Forest Friends. I had to tell her which of her On a Whim 2 prints I liked the best and why, so I told her the owls on white. You know I have a thing for owls, right? I will be receiving a yard of that fabric from her!! Isn't that exciting??
You should stop by her blog she is an amazing designer and seems like a really nice person too.
I have some photos to share later. I have the day off to take DD1 to an appointment for a minor medical procedure. I went to the gym this am so that is done, WHEW!! The pictures are from the dragon lone star I told you about, so will share either today or tomorrow.
One moire thing, I am getting close to having 500 posts, can your believe that? I can't! I will plan some sort of give away for that momentous event so stay tuned!! It will be my way of celebrating the wonderful friendships I have made, the encouragement you have all given to me and the support. It is difficult to believe that there are folks out there that actually read what I have to say *and* comment. It still amazes me. So a BIG thank you to all of you and I will think about what to give away. Have a great day and celebrate your life!!
